Recipe Post N0.9- Happy Mother's Day!!πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜„πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ’–

First of, Happy Mother's Day!

Today's post in accolade of mothers, like-mothers, stepmothers, daughters, sisters, friends,cousins,aunties,grannies ANYONE who's takes the place of others but whose place cannot be taken (Anne, Sibohan and Jack). And yes, I understand, one day every year doesn't exactly define the aggregate of motherly care and compassion shown. However, since there IS a day in the calendar, specifically dedicated to all mothers(and motherly figures), I feel that gives me an excuse to bake something amazing! SO without further ado, I hope you enjoy and manage to make this recipe for someone who means the most to you.

In order to whip up this quick and easy cake, you'll require:

200g of glace cheeries

225g of self-raising flour

175g of softened butter

175g of caster sugar

1 lemon, finely grated zest, required

50g of ground almonds

3 large free-range eggs.

To decorate:

175g of icing sugar

1 lemon,juice only

15g of flaked almonds, preferably toasted

5 glace cherries, quartered.

Baking in the making:

First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 180℃/350F/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 23cm bundt tin or and regular cake tin with butter.

Cut the cherries into quarters, setting aside five of the quartered cherries for decoration later. Put the rest of the quartered cherries into a sieve, rising under running water. Drain well, drying thoroughly on kitchen paper and tossing into two tablespoons of flour.

Beat all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl and beat well for two minutes, in order to mix thoroughly. Lightly fold in the cherries. Turn this into your prepared tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until well risen, golden brown and skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out and cooling onto a wire rack.

For the icing, mix the icing sugar together with the lemon juice to a thick paste. Drizzle over the cooled cake using the back of a spoon, sprinkle over toasted almonds and reserved cherries and voila!

Baking Post N0.8- INTRODUCING...POLLS!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š✌πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†πŸ˜…

Hola, mis amigos!

This week post stems from an idea I've  pondered about for a forever and a day. Nevertheless, I believe it's been long enough and it's about time to promulgate such affairs. To me, 2018 is apropos to elevation and evolving from previous ways and getting out there, doing things with thought of course, but  conquering my ambitions for this blog. So without ado, I introduce to you, BakingBoutique polls!!

The idea behind initiating polls is acquiring further input from you, making a democratic decision(just like those live polls on TV). Besides, I've always wanted to hold my own poll.

Primarily, I'll be holding a series of polls, presumably 1-2 times every two weeks perhaps,or particularly when I'm feeling particularly uninspired or indecisiveness on what to post. Obviously if I could, I would post two posts in one day. Nevertheless, publishing content like that takes time which I merely can't find time for these days. 

The polls will be touching on either topics I'm unsure on picking (the majority will be around food) or two diverse recipes I feel are equally splendid but I'd like a second opinion.  I'm especially excited to release my first poll later tonight. Although, to further enhance my excitement, please PARTICIPATE and cast your vote

I give my word, it always makes a difference and I always take your opinion into account. Of course, the majority of votes will be selected. However, if I feel the second option is still particularly good and not an idea to discard of, I'll place in a future poll so not all hope is lost.😊

I'm ending this post on a short note but PLEASE participate in these polls and if you enjoy what you see, be sure to check out my other recipe posts and I'll see you in the next one. 

Before you go...
