I have been working on a couple of crocheted item, but I don’t seem to be in too much of a hurry to finish them. Lately, I just can’t sit still long enough to crochet. My mind wants to wander to other things rather than the task at hand.
Two weeks ago, to satisfy a craving, I baked a Victoria Sponge Cake.
It does go very well with a cup of hot tea.
There is one problem with this cake. The problem being that I am the only one here that likes it. I ended up throwing more than half away. I could have-believe me-eaten the whole cake all by myself. Nevertheless, I was good and only had two slices in a two-day period.
I suppose I could make half the recipe and find a smaller pan-I suppose.
This recipe makes one 9-inch cake. Rather than cut the cake in half horizontally, I chose to cut it in half. By doing it this way, the cake was too thick and I lost the flavors of the cream and raspberry. I should have just stuck to the way I normally do it. However, if you would like a thicker cake, double the recipe and divide between two 9-inch cake pans.
Later that same week, I made Orange Swirl Cinnamon Rolls.
Everyone here loves these rolls. I had no leftovers like there was with the Victoria Sponge Cake.
It has been my experience that not many could resist a hot, yeast roll fresh from the oven?
