Yesterday was cold temperature dropped to minus 22. I had no desire to venture outside and housework was not high on my list of things to do. It was a challenging week at work, the requests kept pouring in and by Friday I was so swamped with work it took a while to clear up all the request for service. The business of domestic violence pauses for no one. I didn’t leave the office until 8:53 pm, before leaving work I filled up my bottle with water ordered some wings, picked it up and ate it on the subway on my way home. I was wiped and cooking was out of the question, a shower and bed were the only two things my brain had the capacity to absorb. Saturday morning i was still coming down from a long night and the daunting tasks of house work was not enticing so I decided to bake a cake, no real measuring just a whole lot of guestimating. Below is a visual of my process….there are no artificial ingredients, all simple and you can pronounce the names, butter, sugar, egg, flour, cinnamon, lemon, lime, baking powder, salt.
The outcome was fantastic. It was light and fluffy and the taste is absolutely fabulous if I do say so myself. I had a piece oops…i cannot tell a lie, a couple of pieces, it was so good I had to take a picture of each slice (haha) yep I am praising myself, no apologies here. I washed it all down with my own tea blend of green tea, raspberry, licorice, passion fruit and bitter melon. A delightful way I say to spend the evening.
