It’s amazing and feels therapeutic when I decide to bake something, especially when the eldest two are away at school and Darling is well-fed so that he busies himself with playing. I’m left at peace to whip up some baked goodies and today I went in for two batches of date cake. My kitchen now is wafting heavenly with the sweet smell of cinnamon and dates!
Hubster is away for a religious gathering to Aurangabad and I have more time on hand now since there is less cooking and waiting on him. He should be back today and we look forward to his return, in sha Allah 🙂
I had busied myself in organising and tidying up the kitchen yesterday. While in the midst of it, Little Man (he had brought his homework to the kitchen while I worked) and I thought of arranging my baking tools on the lowest shelf so that it is easy for me to grab them and that way I can bake more often. Wise decision because today I could effortlessly decide upon baking a date cake and sharing the recipe for this week’s #SuperBloggerChallenge2018
I have experimented with a few recipes and finally stuck with this one since it has resulted in baking the best date cake so far. Have fun baking. Tag me or let me know when you bake and decide to post about it 😊
