Do you ever have one of those day’s when you just shouldn’t have?
Well it’s no surprise I just can’t (bake/Cook) cook, but unfortunately sometimes I forget about this very fact
In March I bought one of those beautiful Kitchen Maid Mixer’s which I thought would make anything I turned out to be bloody brilliant. It wasn’t me it must be the old hand held mixer, which I had, had for about 30 years. I have a suspicion it may also be that I am time poor and don’t cook enough
|Magic stuff is gong to come from this|
I also bought a new cook book, see I just knew with that combination; I was going to be great. I have in fact made two cakes from this book and one has been successful
So today I tried to make a Cinnamon nut cake. FirstlyI didn’t have enough dough mix for the cake, even though I followed the recipe, (I have made notes in the book should there be a next time to double the mix) so I made another mix. This is after all a layer cake, a base, a middle and a top; the top and the bottom, being the same, a cinnamon walnut mix in the middle
I baked it for the time that was suggested and then had to give it another 5 minutes, fearing I would dry the cake out if I left it in for any longer I took it out:
- I took it out to cool
- On a wire rack
- Sprinkled it with icing sugar
- Cut it!!!
- Bit sloppy!!!
- Good grief, it was ugly
But the bonus is, it will be magic heated up with ice-cream and presented as a dessert, and no one will know any difference

Well what a wonderful warm weekend, a footy weekend for us, I have something for you to ponder
So my team lost on Friday (Dockers), their team lost on Saturday (West Coast Eagles). Yes I watched both games, did some knitting at the same time; helps with the tension
My point is, I get a lot of grief for being a Dockers supporter, and I am always hearing like a bloody violin how the West Coast Eagles have won a premier ship and the Dockers haven’t
Well cop this:
How much did the West Coast Eagles loose by this weekend?
Oh that’s right 12 points!
How much did the Dockers loose by this weekend?
Oh that’s right only by 10 points!
So we the Dockers are 2 points ahead of the Eagles, how much mileage do you think I will get out of that?
