My daughter is having a little get together at her home and I was in charge of making the cake, it is a joint celebration as my Hubby turned 40 this year on the 24th January and its my Daughters birthday tomorrow, she is 26 so not a milestone age but it is her 1st birthday as a mummy and what a wonderful mummy she is growing to be.
So as Mum's/wives do I offered to make their joint celebratory cake and chose what I would deem as classic favourites, Lemon Drizzle Cake and Chocolate Brownies, neither wanted anything elaborate and the above said cakes covers most peoples tastes.
To get to the reason why I have felt the need to share this personal snippet of general life stuff on my blog is this, though I would consider myself a competent cook and yes I have made many enjoyable versions of the above said cakes for various family & friends occasions, on this occasion I decided to try the recipes of a well know TV Chef, the Naked Chef to be precise, good old Jamie,
Well I have just sampled my creations, Awesome as in the words of some surfer teen dude lol, Thank You Jamie Oliver your 15 Brownies and Nan's Lemon Drizzle Cake are the best I've ever made mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and I thought I should share with the world, see below for links to the recipes & pictures;
