Cherry Muffins

I love Christmas mornings. It is the one time in the year that I don't detest waking up at the crack of dawn. We are usually awake just before 5:00am, teeth brushed, face scrubbed and curtains about to be drawn open when a note slides under our bedroom door from the...

Daisy Cake
Daisy Cake

  This gorgeous cake oozes retro charm. It tells me what old fashioned cakes would be all about. Mind you, I am not that old. But this is how I imagine cakes in an old kitchen with yellow countertops and lace doilies to be like. Simple, unpretentious, golden and...

Wholemeal and totally wicked Chocolate Cake
Wholemeal and totally wicked Chocolate Cake

  April in my family is a cake heavy month. With four birthdays in the span of 3 weeks, there is so much cake that at the end of it, I vow never to eat cake again. Not for long though, come May and I am already baking well into the winter months. Every few months, we...
