Summer Fruits Cake

Today I made a cake because I felt like it. It is a Victoria sponge cake. I used:

125g caster sugar
125g butter
125g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 small eggs
1 tbsp milk


We cooked it in two small tins for about 10 minutes (note from Mummy - about 180 degrees C) and let them cool. We chopped them into rectangles.

Then  my big sister Lara made some butter cream with vanilla and I piped it on in blobs. I cut up lots of strawberries from our garden and put them inside. On top I put strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and currants. I picked them yesterday in the garden.




This cake is soft, sweet and summery. With squirty cream I don't think it will taste as good as just the cake because it will make it have too much sweetness.

Its very summery because it has lots of summery fruits from our own garden. Even though the gooseberries are sharp, they still are really yummy.




Pea Pesto Spaghetti

This weekend I stayed with my Grandma and Grandpa and I wanted to cook dinner for them. I made a pesto spaghetti meal which I saw in Waitrose when I went shopping with Mummy.




I made the pesto out of:

frozen peaschillialmondsparmesan cheesemintolive oil We stirred it into some spaghetti and I had lemon juice on it. We also had salad and for pudding I ate lots of fruit - strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.



The pea pesto tasted super yummy and we had Appletiser. I am going to make this again at home for Mummy and Daddy.
Thanks, bye.
