Phone Photo Friday

Phone Friday 15.03

This week I made the BEST cake ever. See the recipe here if you want to test it out. I also got my new, beautiful camera. All paid for by my art sales and exhibition. I’m so soo excited and although I still have a lot to learn on it, I have been having a big play around testing out settings. How come I didn’t buy an SLR sooner?
In the following weeks, I will be sharing a few Easter DIY’s that I’m working on so keep any eye out. I hope you all have a fab weekend planned,xobec


Zucchini cake with lemon cream cheese icing

Zucchini cake recipe 2Zucchini cake recipe 4 Zucchini cake recipe 3

I’m one of those people that when it comes to baking I can never seem to follow the recipe. I think oooh I know what would go well instead of that! Most of the time, my baking turns out pretty shockingly but then, on very rare occasions, one turns out perfectly! This is one of them. A zucchini cake with lemon cream cheese icing. I adapted the recipe from here.

Ingredients:
♥ 2 cups flour
♥ 2 teaspoons cinnamon
♥ 2 teaspoons baking soda
♥ 1 teaspoon salt
♥ 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
♥ 3 eggs
♥ 1 cup white sugar
♥ 1/2 cup vegetable oil
♥ 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
♥ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
♥ 2 cups grated zucchini

I sifted all the dry ingredients into one bowl. In another bowl I whisked the eggs until they were fluffy then added the oil, yoghurt, vanilla extract and zucchini. Mixed all together and then baked at 180deg Celsius until golden brown and popped back when pressed.
I then made a lemon/cream cheese icing and covered with coconut.
I think me running out of oil and using yoghurt instead, made it even better (haha!). I wish you could all taste it with me!

IT’S RAINING, IT’S POURING.


Well todays Sunday stroll isn’t turning out to be much of a stroll as its pouring with rain. So I’m inside watching movies, doing my cross stitch (yes I am a bit of a grandma these days!), having a cup of tea and eating carrot cake! Hopefully I will finish the cross stitch today so I can show you all the end result.
This morning I also started my 10 hour mission of photos and will get them developed tomorrow, so looking forward to showing you! Hope you’re having a lovely warm Sunday. X Bec
