Little Foodies Lemon Drizzle Cakes

I wrote about lemon drizzle cupcakes last week that I promised a picture for. I've realised that I didn't take any. I made them again yesterday for the cake bake sale (Nursery School Afternoon Tea) and still didn't take any pictures. Click here for the recipe. As it's the half term holiday for us this week I just made two medium size heart shape ones using the same recipe. Now that's a lot of lemon drizzle cake over the period of seven days. I took a picture this time - see above. One has already been snaffled. The other is now up a height. At least until my husband gets home.

Over the next few weeks I think we're going to hop all over the world. The main reason for this is to stop being wasteful. We have cupboards full of ingredients that really need to start being used up. If we stick with one place at a time it makes it tricky as I seem incapable of planning more than a couple of weeks in advance. Which tends to mean, we decide on a new country then I rush out and buy a whole load of new stuff. We seriously have enough sauces, spices, herbs and condiments of one sort or another (among other things) to last a a very large family a good twelve months. So, to that end we'll definitely be heading to the Far East, with a trip back to Japan. I'm really looking forward to Thailand and I may pick Joey's brain of 80 Breakfasts fame, who tempts us all with amazing food and photographs from Manila in the Phillipines.

This sounds like a good time to clean out the kitchen cabinets. Happy cooking!

These are one of my true weaknesses, Amanda!
And shaped like heart, who can say no?? :)

Lemon cakes are always good and especially a heart shaped one!
So you'll be doing some puddle jumping around the world in 8 days or weeks or whatever time it takes. Puddle jumpers are fun.

I have just this evening made a batch of heart-shaped lemon drizzle cupcakes! I am working very hard not to eat them all before they're cool enough to shut away in a tin...

Cynthia said...

Put on the kettle, I'm coming over.

Marie said...

Ohhhh, lovely looking Lemon Drizzle Cake! I may make one myself later on today. You have inspired me!

Valli said...

These lemon drizzle must be excellent if you've made them 3 times in a row!!!!

Truffle said...

Sounds like a wise plan. Another gorgeous creation Amanda. I'd love a slice!

Elle said...

Yummy lemon drizzle cake...especially pretty as a heart shape.
Can't wait to see your culinary travels.

Hi Aimee, I'm actually a bit ashamed at just how much stuff there is.

Hi Patricia, me too!

Hi Tanna, puddle jumping - Small's favourite past time!

Hi Alice, hope you managed to save a few for the next day.

Hi Cynthia, your tea is getting cold!

Hi Marie, so easy, so good!

Hi Valli, they are good but I really do have to stop making them or well you know...

Hi Truffle, Definitely a good plan and you'd be more than welcome to a slice or two.

Hi Elle, can't wait myself. Feel like I've been eating far too much stodge and some nice restorative thai broths, etc are needed to cleanse the system.

Thank you all for your comments.
