♥ Sparkly corners, little things, joy and sunshine
Smiles. Gingham cloth on breakfast table. Freshly baked bread
Pear tarts.. Yum.
Family time, love time, under the holiday sun
The man in the kitchen, grilled fish over lemon grass
That little black dress, red wine, Christmas pudding, fairy lights
Quiet corners to dream away, Hot chocolate, Polar express, flannel pajama with teddy bear on it.
Fluffy blankets, movie time, secretly watching stars at midnight!
A glittering Christmas tree with hopes for a better world on its branches.
Wishing you a thoughtful Christmas if you are reading it and all the things above ♥
In a sauce pan, put to boil brown sugar, raisins, grated ginger (1/2 teaspoon), cinnamon (2 teaspoon) and Jack Daniels Whiskey
In another bowl, cream 2 eggs and 3/4th cup sugar. When fluffy and doubled, add dry mixture (1 and a 1/2 cup flour, 3 heaps tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt)
Fold it in nice and easy and add chopped almonds.
Bake in 220 (centre rack) for 10 minutes, turn down to 180 and bake for another 20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean with a few crumbs attached to it.
This is a dense cake and should be like it. It’s not light and airy and decadent at all. Your cake should have a packed, dense base.
Enjoy with coffee or cocoa.
Merry Christmas all!
