"To Sleep, Perchance to Dream" - OF CAKE!!!! Review with images

AdvantagesDelicious cakes easily made from ingredients I already had

DisadvantagesMight get a bit sickly after 9 or 10..........

"--------------------------------- Do any of you ever dream of cake? -------------------------------- Lying in bed late on Sunday morning, nodding in and out of sleep, is when I tend to get my most vivid dreams – and on this particular morning I was dreaming that I was baking: scones, buns, cakes, pastries etc. It was strange as I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth and usually only indulge in sweet treats on special occasions.

Traditional Christmas Cake

AdvantagesTastes beautiful, satisfaction of a job well done

DisadvantagesTakes a while to mix and longer to complete

"This is one of my favourite recipes, I hope that the long list of ingredients does not put you off as they are not very dear and can be kept for a while afterwards to use in other recipes. Now I am a Catholic and we celebrate Christmas. There are certain things that really remind me of Christmas and one of those things is walking into the house and smelling lots of lovely Christmas smells. Christmas smells to me are baking cakes and goodies, ..." Read review

All Fruit & No Nuts! (Sultana Cake) Review with images

AdvantagesGood tasty moist cake, & Little Red Hen puts on her pinny!

DisadvantagesDisappears too quick!

"...takes me back to writing recipes down at school in Domestic Science!) 1. Bring sultanas to the boil in a saucepan, and then strain them. 2. While sultanas are still hot in the saucepan, add the butter or margarine and stir until melted. 3. Add sugar, eggs and almond essence and mix well. 4. Stir in flour and salt. If you are adding nuts (but I don't) add them now. Mix well. Pour into the greased and/or lined tin and smooth the top ..." Read review
