Both the Hubs and I are trying hard to shed a few extra pounds of weight, so fresh baked cakes and pastries are a bit of a 'no no' right now. So I thought I'd try to distract myself a bit to take my mind off it.
I decided to eat a healthy breakfast as I had lots of luscious fruit begging to be eaten - great start !
Sadly this delish start to the day still didn't stop me wanting to turn on the oven and bake something naughty So...
I thought that a meringue wouldn't be as bad for the hips as a cake and made into a Pavlova it would use up more of the fruit left over from breakfast (I'm sure the whipped cream had negligible calories ) - it was truly scrumptious !
However.... I just couldn't shake the urge to actually BAKE and the oven was still warm, so I just had to turn up the heat a little and make a lemon drizzle cake
We did manage to resist eating it that day and it improved with 'age' . We did polish off the Pavlova though - well all that fruit and egg whites it's got to be good for you hasn't it ? Answers on a postcard please Ha Ha !
That's it from me today folks, have a great day... let me know if my post makes you want to get baking too !
Bye for now, til next time.
