The Saturday Cook In! The Story So Far ….


The story so far…  I have made the first Christmas Cake and it is now in the oven for four hours.

DSC04114Here is the mixture half done.  My Grandma taught me how to bake and although I have made millions of cakes I still hear her instructions when I am creaming the butter and sugar together and then adding the flour! 

DSC04116The other side of my kitchen and of course you have to watch a Christmas film while baking, “Home Alone”!!!!!!!  Actually Treacle and I are Home Alone at the moment as DH and the Boys are out getting hair cuts!!!!!

DSC04115I hate to say it but I am generally a messy cook!

DSC04119All the ingredients are in now

DSC04120In the tin

DSC04121And all wrapped like a Christmas present!  Now just the four hour wait!

I have put all the bowls into the dishwasher now and then I will prepare the mixture for the two smaller cakes and get them baking when this one is out.  Tonight it is Christmas card writing!!!!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…!

More pictures later!
