Apple , Cinnamon and Walnut cake …
…1st of December is a date I always look forward to , for many reasons . First of all it is my birthday and although I am not particularly bothered about getting older (44 today) , my 10 year old son deemed it necessary to make me feel better by saying that according to him you are not considered old until you hit 50 .Good to know !😂
Today also means the beginning of a month of Christmas celebrations .
I love the leading up to Christmas Day more that the day itself to be completely honest . The house puts its best ‘clothes’ on and there is always a yummy treat around to be had , whether that is a piece of chocolate from the advent calendar or Christmassy bakes that fill the room with smells of citrus , cinnamon and spice .
So , as my first bake of December , I chose something that combines festive flavours , but also something my mother used to make for my birthday every year , when I was a little girl .
The recipe is on the first comment of this post .
My scales gave up , so I had to measure everything in cups .The cake came out perfect 👌
P.S. Later on hubby is making me my most favourite dish of his , chilli con carne , and I hope he will be willing to let me have the recipe so that I can share with you on my next post .
Let the festivities begin !! 🎉
