In The Kitchen and a FREE Tutorial for You !


I have spent a little bit of time in the kitchen this week.  I have been refilling and rotating some of my ingredient tubs to give them a nice freshen up.  When things like dates begin to get low I like to empty them out, clean the tub and put the fresh ones on the bottom to ensure the older ones get used first.  I seem to use a lot of dates !  It could be because my hubby loves date scones and date and walnut loaf.  They don't really get a chance to be stale but I still like to rotate them,



I have a really sweet tooth.  I would much prefer dessert to main course.  It has been my down fall.  As my mobility has dropped my weight has risen so I try not to keep sweet treats in the house because I have absolutely no will power !  My sweet tooth craved some orange cake earlier in the week.  It's a really simple one which requires a whole orange whizzed up in the blender, sugar, butter, eggs and flour.



Instead of making a larger cake I decided on smaller cakes this time and used these lovely muffin wrappers.


They baked up really well


I then added some orange butter cream made with orange juice and then sprinkled with some grated peel.


They were divine !!  We still have some in the pantry and I think I will be having another one today for afternoon tea.  Even though it has a whole orange in it including the peel you can't tell.  It's just a lovely flavoursome cake. 


I've been making some little fabric shabby flowers - I make these all of the time and set them aside for when I need them to embellish a project.  I decided to make a tutorial in case you wanted to make some too.


They are really simple and use upcycled clothing that I find on the $1 racks at the local thrift shops.




The tutorial is on my channel HERE if you would like to watch it.  Don't forget to subscribe whilst you are there - I am uploading little tutorials all of the time.

Hugs,

Love the orange cake. Sadly sweets are also my downfall. I try not to have them in my house too much either but with Costco opening i've bought things to try that i normally wouldn't get. Like the huge cheesecakes. :) Hugs,xx

Thanks for another great tutorial Fee. I love all that you share with us. Like you, I have a really sweet tooth & it is my downfall too. I would far rather bake than cook a meal .... I try to give my baking away so that it doesn't always end up on my hips ... just sometimes!!
