I am in the mood for baking!

Third set of Grand children are due for the weekend so stick cakes at Ganny's house are a must

I still love baking and I must admit to the cardinal sin of loving to stick my finger in the mixture and lick it off. ( I can blame my Mum for that) Yum yum.

The recipie I am using today has yoghurt in it instead of all fat - much better for us- ha of course it isn't the only thing better is not to bake.- boring -

So I shall crack on - lots of egg jokes now please.......

Have a eggcellent day x gins
