B is for Baking (FD)

Baking is fun!

I love to bake; baking bread, biscuits/cookies and cakes. Like this cake:

It's a ginger spice cake; simple cake mixture with a tablespoon each of ginger and mixed spice in it.

Nothing beats the smell of a kitchen in which you've just been baking, nor the taste of fresh bread or warm cookies newly removed from the oven. Don't you think?

Looks good. My hubby likes spice cake.

Thanks! :)

I love baking! I might make some cookies today. Is the recipe for that ginger cake on your cooking blog?

Toriz said...

In some shape or form... I've made it so many times I don't remember if I followed a recipe or just made a cake mixture and made up the amounts for the spices though. Just find a recipe for a cake mixture and add 1 tbsp each of mixed spice (or "all spice" it's the same thing) and ginger.

Love spice cake and yours looks so yummy! I can almost smell it through the computer!

Iggy & Deanna:
Trust me, it was as yummy as it looks. And, yes, it's all gone.

Ginger cake sounds wonderful for tonight. I think I'll bake some. I want my house smelling yummy ;-)

That does look delicious! I agree with you, Tori; it is neat smelling something delicious baking or cooking in the oven :) And then getting to sample it is even better!!

Ginger spice cake sounds delicious. It's one of my favorite kinds of cake. Looks great, too. :) And yep, nothing beats the smell of something baking in the oven. :)

Toriz said...

Good plan; bet the little princess and your piano man would enjoy helping you eat the cake when it's done. ;)

Absolutely; sampling the freshly baked items is the only thing better than smelling them!

It's my favourite too; well, of the kinds I've made. Carrot cake is my all time favourite, but I've never been brave enough to attempt baking it.
