OAT, SULTANA & CHOC CHIP SLICE
Confession time: I am truly in love with baking right now, as you've probably guessed. I'm loving writing my blog and I also love when friends are coming over as I'm able to try new recipes. My good friend Cas was coming over recently for a coffee, a chat and some baked goodness. I looked what was in the cupboards and found a recipe to make from the ingredients. Now these were nice, I always love oats in baking and as for chocolate, that goes without saying. Cas enjoyed these, we had a great chat and then I took the leftovers to drama class for my teens to try. They were gone within a few minutes, so they must have been okay!
The thing I love about the above photo, it shows some of the great homewares I got for my birthday. Homewares, my other little obsession right now. Someone make me this guy a 1950's housewife!
Spent the last two days baking extravagant birthday cakes for the two birthday parties I am going to this week, so can't wait to share those with you next week. Until then, keep baking.
