a cake affair

I thought I would take this opportunity to thank you all for bringing such yummy cakes to the class.
we've had sali's raspberry delight, Maureen's legendary brownies, bev's loaf, simoni's chocolate chia cake, denzil's yoghurt cake, biscuits from Katarina, carrot cake from Meredith, jans ring cake....( I hope I haven't left anyone out.....)
its always nice to take a break in the middle of the class and indulge in something delicious.
I'm more than happy to supply the cake but you always beat me to it.

well last week I baked a cake ( which is a miracle!)
you wanted the recipe so I thought I would post it here on the blog.
