Happy weekend! Welcome, all the lovely new readers…
You probably have everything in your pantry to make this cake today. It’s the cake that debuts at every family birthday and celebration in our house.
It’s the cake that Ruby makes in my new novel, Love Lie Repeat. (Yes, out now!)
The scent of this cake — especially the chocolate glaze — will drift through your entire house. Have I sold you?
The recipe is here. (If you’re gf or df, make all your usual substitutions for flour and butter.)
The secret of this cake is olive oil, balsamic vinegar, no eggs, and coffee!
For a quick update on all things Aussie — autumn is here. It’s glorious.
Tibouchinas are blooming purple (also in my novel!) and the air smells like Orange Jessamine /Murraya blossom.
Time to rest a little today…agree?
Time to appreciate our beautiful autumn and bake for the people you love.
Enjoy your weekend!
