A bit of cake… (pineapple upside down cake)

cake

Cake. What with the #gbbo being over and feeling a sense of loss for all things kitchy and bake like I thought I would keep the cake alive. There has certainly been a cake shaped hole in my life this week. Is anyone else having cake/baking withdrawals?

Over a month ago (I know I know) my blog turned one years old. It has been limping along as of late, much like myself, but it has reached it’s milestone and I am glad. I may have great plans for this little here blog that might never materialise, I make promises I can’t keep with it. I also feel intimidated and daunted by it, especially when more and more time passes without a proper update. However it has served, and still very much serves, as a source of inspiration. A place where I can do/say/make what the hell I like a some sort of release. And what better reason is there to celebrate than that. I must remember that blogging is to enjoy and to have an outlet. Its not something that MUST be done.

I was thinking the other day (ok a lot of the days, I have a lot of time on my hands to think and not do much else lately) that its the small minute details in life that are worth celebrating and should be done so on a regular occasion. Cake should be brought out in a ceremonious affair for those tiny little battles that have been done. I want to start to try and be a bit more considerate and grateful of the small little winning moments in my life. The big stuff is a bit too scary at the moment.

The other day I set it upon my self to make an easy cake, something that was simple and didn’t require to much physical exertion on my part. Something tasty though. It was baked on a Sunday. To celebrate Sunday.
Good things in my life worth celebrating this week are:
Wonderful friends and especially family. Its the small little bits of contact that keep me going.
Dr’s and nurses and their tireless amazing work that they do every single day. I have a lot to say on this subject so…
Autumn chill finally starting to arrive here, all the leaves are turning and it is sunny and cold. Just the way I like it.
The simcity game on my phone.
Lindt salted chocolate is the best.
Cups of tea.
Puppy warm duvet hugs.
Being bought magazines and treatment survival items.
Burgers for celebrating a long day of being scared and hospital procedures and treatments.

Here is the recipe in full for this weeks celebratory cake. The Pineapple upside down cake:
