Welcome everyone to a fun idea I had this morning… Today would have been my father-in-love Pete’s 82nd birthday and to celebrate his birthday, I made a Victoria Sponge cake and invited my mother-in-love to tea…
So we are doing things a little differently this week… Since I missed SYS yesterday with working on my mother-in-law’s shed, I thought I’d get SYS out today instead.
It all began about 9am with the idea to bake a cake. This week is also Queen Elizabeth’s 70 Platinum Jubilee, which is how I came to look for a cake recipe in a favorite cookbook, A Time for Tea.
And, no, I didn’t need the baking powder or baking soda. Why they are in the picture? They were just infront of the self-rising flour in the cupboard. Props… 😉
This is a very fast cake to bake (20-25 minutes) and you use 8″ round cake pans.
I ran out of strawberry jam to put in the middle between the layers, but no matter! I popped open the lingonberry jam and mixed the two. Turns out this combination is quite tasty!!
Gini was happy to come over to celebrate and it made me happy to help her to get through today and to honor my father-in-love.💜
So let’s have a piece of cake and get to our SYS party…
And here are this week’s featured posts…
