Lets get back to it...

The Island is full of golden orange sunshine, quite the contrast from yesterday. It was howling and and very blustery! full on downpours and leafs were circling and flying about! defiantly not going out weather! Nope instead it was a day to bake and snuggle away.

I baked a Apple and Cinnamon cake - what better warming scents and flavors are there? they just scream Autumn comfort.


2 cups of self raising flour

1 Cup of Brown Sugar
200ml of Milk
100 ml of Veg Oil
2 large eggs
1tsp of Cinnamon
1tsp of Mixed Spice.
About 2 large cooking apple
Lemon Juice.

Pre Heat the oven to 190c
Peel apple and thinly slice. pop apples in a bowl and pour over lemon juice, this helps to stop the apple going brown.
In a bowl add the dry ingredients - flour, sugar and spice. in a jug mix together the Oil, egg and milk, give a  quick whisk to blend then pour liquid into dry mix, give a light stir then add the apples.Once all combine, pour mixture into a lined cake tin and pop in the oven for 40mins until nice and golden on top.
Serve warm with custard or ice cream.

Deary me!!!

Such time has passed since i last posted!!! very bad on my part!!!
But i'm feeling the mood is back for me to blog.

So whats been going on in the last 9 months? well i've been to Canada which was amazing!, My cooking styles are getting better with each thing i put my hand too. Summer was lovely lots of BBQ's, meals out and drinking and dancing many a night away.

Autumn is setting in and this is why i now think i'm ready to blog again, more time spent at home, lots more cooking and baking, making the flay more and more home like!, I've got a few DIY projects up my sleeve so hopefully that should see my blog become very homely and more rounded.

Keep your eyes peeled for more post from now on.

Much Love
