It has been a long time between post's but I feel ready to get back into it. Not quite sure what happened?! ... motherhood with a very active little fellow and not much sleep nor time to myself!
My son Emanuel turned one on Sunday so we had a lovely party in the park. I've gotten a lot of requests for the recipe of his birthday cake so thought I would share it here so I didn't have to keep typing it out!
Here is My Great Aunt Fae's Sponge Cake recipe. I cooked it in two tins and put cream and berries in the middle and on the top made a 1 out of the blueberries.
180Deg 30mins (or less if divided into two tins)
4 stiffly beaten egg whites
add 1 cup caster sugar and beat in gently, then
melt 1oz butter in 2 tablespoons hot milk plus vanilla
sift 1 cup SR flour 3 times and add to cake mixture alternatively with milk mixture
