weekend lunching

weekend spent lunching and enjoying fine company and food! above is a sour cherry cake we made for a friends birthday. my omama's easy recipe again - just so versatile and easy!

omama cake
weigh 4 x eggs without breaking them....
then add same weight of: sugar, self raising flour, butter
some vanilla or lemon zest if you wish and depending on the fruit you use
combine and add a splash or two of milk to make a thick batter
pour into greased and lined springform cake tin and add fruit of choice
(think cherries, apple, pear, peach, blueberries.....anything really!)
sprinkle with raw sugar and bake in medium pre-heated oven until done!
finish with icing sugar if you like and find a bunch of friends to share with, along with a cup of tea!

marjee// don't worry, plenty of thought about baby and milk and sleep.....just need the cooking and crafting to balance it all out or else i'd go madder than i've already grown!

a common thread// doesn't take much - once you start you can't stop!

angie// we laugh so much about addie saying "thats awful/disgusting" to your food that its now a catchphrase in our of course you dread it when your little people will say that! but your creative solutions are giving us ideas for how we may have to deal with lottie in the future!

catherine// if only i had your food photo skills to take pictures of our creations!


  1. this looks so scrumptious! (and, your beautiful color palette in your kitchen did not go unnoticed.)

  2. haha - colour palette for me is very easy when i buy everything ORANGE :) it just somehow works.
    what you DON'T see is the hideous laminated benchtop in the kitchen and the revolting 80's tiles. i sometimes think i want a blog called "this is what its REALLY like"

  3. yeah, balance is a great thing to strive for! Hope you enjoyed your nine days...
