Victoria Sponge Cake….

240209-035

Yesterday I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, our friends were coming round in the evening for a visit so I decided to try a different lasagne recipe, and it took me hours!!  It did taste delicious tho, so I will keep that one up my sleeve for future special occasions, or when I have bags of time to dipose of :-).     I also made a quick and simple  wee sponge cake, think i’ll make this one at easter too it looks pretty 🙂

If you have little kiddies they would absolutely love this… but it’s also good for us big kiddies too 😉     The above picture was the only slice left this morning, I managed to get a quick picture before my son scoffed the lot!

Here is the recipe..

  • 6oz Butter or Margarine
  • 6oz Caster Sugar
  • 6 oz Plain Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • Dash of Vanilla Extract
  • Icing Sugar
  • Sprinkles
  • Micro Chocolate Eggs

Method:

I use my food mixer

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale light and fluffy
  • Add the eggs one at a time and  mix well
  • Add the flour and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed
  • Pour the mixture into a greased/lined cake tin
  • Bake in the oven @ 170 degrees C for 20 minutes
  • Remove from Oven and allow to cool on a wire rack
  • Mix up your icing sugar and cover over the cooled cake, cover with sprinkles and scatter a few little chocolate eggs over the top.

Pink Fudge Topped Fairy Cakes

We had visitors round last night and cakes are always a favourite with the kids, especially when theyre pink, yummy and topped with soft fudge pieces.  

I love to make fairy cakes and try and come up with different toppings each time, so apologies for the overdose of fairy cakes if you follow my blog…

unable to help my self tho’ as they’re sooooo pretty 🙂

You can find the recipe for the basic fairy/cup cakes here..
