From the Kitchen
There have been lots of yummy treats coming out of the kitchen these school holidays. First up is a family favourite - Cinnamon Roll Cake. I cook this in a roasting dish lined with baking paper, and have cut down the amount of butter in the cinnamon topping to 1/2 cup. I also omit the icing/glaze - I think it is sweet enough without it. Delicious fresh from the oven.
Last week when my mum came to stay, she gave me a cook book that I used to love looking through when I was younger. Today I made an Araby Spice Cake from it. I guess in this day - the name is not very PC, however the cake is really delicious with its cinnamon mocha icing. I have found lots of similar recipes on the internet, but most have lemon and shortening in, which mine doesn't. If anyone would like the recipe I used, please let me know and I will email it to you.
Finally muffins to freeze away for school lunches - Banana Chocolate Chip and Apple and Sultana.
