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.

Vegetarian Puff Pastry Pizzas

At the weekend I had lots of ideas for vegetarian food. Yesterday I made vegetarian puff pastry pizzas with my sister and Ella who looks after me.



I chopped all the vegetables.
TomatoesAsparagusOnionsOlivesRed peppersCeleryMushroomsCucumber for mePickled Jalapenos, For Lara I cut them up a bit smaller.

I used puff pastry. I put tomato sauce on. I used tomato puree. Then I put vegetables on.

We put mozzarella on the top. I told Ella to put it on once it was all cooked but we put it on before it was cooked so it melted. It also had a cheese-filled crust. We put cheddar inside and then we wrapped the pastry up.

Ella put it in the oven for 10 minutes. At the end we left it to cool down for 4 minutes.



It tasted really good because of the crust. It had a beautiful taste of tomatoes. A sweet cream taste of the cheese. It was healthy but also a little bit sweet.  We had it with salad.

Next time I would put the mozzarella once it had cooked and cooled down because then it would go with the tast…
