the recipe is this - you take 4 eggs and weigh them and whatever they weigh, you then weigh out your sugar, butter and flour to the same weight - easy! then i just put it all in a mixing bowl at the same time, mixed it and put into two cake tins - 25-30 mins at 180!
then being on a role i made this :-not quite as big as barbara's (the good life!). however i do have a confession to make, and feel i must be totally honest, i made it in my bread maker! however i did have to measure out all the ingredients!
and finally, i went strawb picking this morning. there is a brilliant pick your own place near us and they have great fruit as well as lots of other things - here's what their strawbs look like-
they are huge and even better they are table top ones so you don't have to get backache!
well this was all the good - there was a bit of bad too - my daughter and i went out for a ride on sunday afternoon, it was a lovely day, and we were just riding back towards home along the road when some cars came towards us, the front two slowed down and we smiled and waved our thanks as we always do, then the third car - with a lady (and i use the term loosely) driver - came past - well i have never heard such horrible language - she was hurling abuse at us saying that .......horses shouldn't be on the road, should be in a ......field, etc. etc. . I was gobsmacked as we had done absolutely nothing wrong - it just left me feeling a bit sad really - i can't understand why someone would just be so horrible - people are strange. well that's off my chest, sorry if i banged on!
anyway, enough of that, i just went onto the blogoverse later that evening and had my spirits lifted by all the lovely people and the amazing things they make.on a lighter note - here's molly caught in the act
