Handwritten Recipes

Happy Weekend everyone, I hope you all have a great one.  I’m selling at a Christmas Night Market tonight so have been busy packaging up all my homeware goodies in Christmas ribbon and cards (I’ll post photos on Monday).

I wanted to leave you with this gorgeous handwritten recipe my nephew gave me for Orange Cake.  I haven’t made it yet but have been told it is delicious…there is something very old and charming about handwriting a recipe, something we just don’t do anymore but something I remember doing as a child going through my Aunt’s recipe collection.

You’ll be safe creaming the butter and sugar, adding the eggs one at a time beating well between additions.  Then add sifted flour and the rest of the ingredients.  Don’t overmix.

If you make the cake I’d love you to email me a picture.  I’m going to make one next week and would love to see how all the different cakes turn out…what tin did you use, maybe you made the recipe as muffins, did you ice it, you could even get your son or daughter to make it…(i’ll include the pictures in a post next week).

From one baker to another…
