Warm Vanilla

I had said absolutely no cakes would be baked for a while so I could lose a few pounds stone. However, I missed the mixing, the sloshing of vanilla extract, the chemistry and the 'Oh just bung it in and see what happens'. I rarely do exact measurements. 
Spring Red Roses
So... in the past week I have baked a coffee cake and loosely based on blondies  although I substituted the sugar type as I only had golden caster sugar. See what I mean, throw it in and I'm sure it will be fine. They were actually very tasty even though I threw in white chocolate buttons and they all sunk to the bottom. 
Scrummy Cake
Baking equals comfort, all warm vanilla tones hanging in the air, a quick dip of cake mixture, press of sponge and crispy bits on the side of the cake pan. Comforting. Homely. 
Yummy Crumbly Cake
This weekend the question is, what to bake? A quick rummage in the back of the baking cupboard will surely throw up some forgotten ingredients - a jar of cherries, rose water, heaps of sprinkles and glitter, all ready to be thrown in to baking alchemy. I'll surely have some rough around the edges concoction to show you on Monday. 
Happy Weekend Roses

Experimenting in the kitchen is the best sort of homely activity I always think. I know what you mean though about cutting down on all the cakey treats. Just finished the last of this weeks birthday cake. But then I miss the smells and the comforting process that is baking. If only I could do it all and not want to eat it. Maybe that is the answer? lol.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
