Please do indulge me while I reminisce… 5 years ago, yet feels like yesterday.
This cake reminds me of my Nan. I don't know if it's a recipe she made frequently, or if it was just truly memorable when she did! Good ol' fashioned country cooking. This recipe is ideal for a round 20cm diameter cake tin. I used a 24cm tin and multiplied the ingredients by 1.66 (because to double it I needed 6 eggs and I only had 5) — but since it doesn't multiply neatly, I'll just give you the quantities for a 20cm tin.

Erika’s Nana Margaret knitted her this very cute cabled vest. Erika loved a vest as a wee one (she was only 9 months old here! Bless!), because her arms were able to move freely without the bulk of a jumper or coat. Now that she’s a little bit older, I love a vest because she […]
Heavenly: Potato, blue cheese and rocket pizza on a homemade base. I love the way the blue cheese goes all bubbly and frothy, and gives a salty kick to the potato. I will definitely be making this again! 2 large desiree potatoes, very thinly sliced (a mandoline is ideal)2 garlic cloves, finely chopped1/3 cup (80ml) […]
