Introducing my go-to cake; Donna Hay’s Melt and Mix Cake. Awesome as a cake, perfect as muffins/cupcakes. It never disappoints.
I used to make it as muffins once a month as a nanny. It was great for lunchboxes and afternoon tea treats. It’s the kinda cake that uses just one bowl, doesn’t require getting out any electric mixers and can be made in minutes. Oh, and it tastes good too.
The weather here has been oh-so-miserable for about 5 weeks. I’m talking constant rain, winds and flooding around town as well. The news is filled with updates on the weather. You can see people struggling, and it’s just taking it’s toll on people’s spirits.
It’s also the kind of weather that is perfect for baking and making things, so yesterday I called up my go-to cake recipe for another run. It had been a while.
