Mini Lime Yoghurt Loaf Cakes

mini lime yoghurt loaf cakesI find something very appealing about small, individually portioned baked goods; they are more delicate and dainty than full sized versions, and easier to serve. Not that I take the individually portioned bit seriously…if anything,their small size makes it easier to scoff down more than I would if I were eating a slice from a single, large cake… Especially when they are as light, moist, and fresh tasting as these little loaves are.

So you know, maybe save this one to make when you have more than just four people to eat it… (more…)

Orange And Almond Swiss Roll

orange almond swiss rollAs promised – not another bread recipe. This one made me angry though…not the actual cake, that was delicious. But I had it all planned out exactly what I wanted to make, and I wanted to make it with blood oranges, not just normal oranges. So I scoured every local shop looking for them…and couldn’t find any for sale anywhere…needless to say I was a tad disappointed…So I made it with orange oranges instead, and as I said, it was delicious, just not quite what I had planned.
