Talking of cake, here's my Easter cake made for Sunday when my sister and her family visited. It's a carrot cake rather than the traditional simnel. I never have much success with cakes but this recipe never lets me down. I missed going to Northern Ireland this year for Easter as we have done for the past few years. Catching up with one sister was good fun and we even had an Easter egg hunt for the kids though we had to do it indoors because of torrential rain.
|Treated myself to posh Easter egg selection from M&S. Verdict:looks pretty but not really worth the money.|
