Bakin's to cure ricketts

There has been that much citrus pressing here tonight that none of us will suffer from either Ricketts or scurvy. We will be a little more rounded with cakey gloop sticking to our ribs yet content that our weekend guests shall have their cake and eat it.

Lemon Drizzle Crunch (recipe via HERE) I thought Mark was going to pass out at how moist the cake came out. I promise you that you will not fail with this cake.

Lime and Coconut tray bake via the amazing bird HERE . Going to confess that I had to use a lemon on top of lime as I didnt have enough. Lemons? Limes? Pah, both the bloody same.

I bake on account that I had a very very depressing day. Nothing went right. Nothing felt right. Nothing looked right. I hope I don't have a day like today for a long time. I deserve to be happy! I have worked so hard these last few weeks so after my tax return has been done next week, I am going to treat myself to a day out with me (if I can get out the door after eating citrussy cakey lardy goodness!)

PS: Happy birthday to 3 of my friends who share the same date: Nikki, Jane and Regan. All my aquarian friends are lovely. Us Aquarians are a strange old breed :)

Mmmm.... my Great Grandmother used to make a lemon cake like that. But you know what her secret ingredient was in the batter before baking?! Brandy! Perfection. Seriously. :-)
