Oranges! They’re not very popular in our household. So I had to do something before they go bad. So sad.
And poof loaf cake! It’s simple and you get a really soft moist cake. It’s like a pillow, an orange-tasting pillow.
It’s so pillowy soft I took it to my bedroom. Haha. Well, I didn’t sleep on it. I was just chasing light and during the late afternoon my bedroom is the most well lit. Oh the life of a light chaser. The light chasing is like my dream chasing, haha. If there’s a dim light on this one, walk to the next window.
This is great for maybe a lazy breakfast. Start your day with something happily simple? Sounds good.
Or maybe afternoon tea time. A cup of fragrant tea (I like rose and french vanilla :)) and a slice of this then just a few minutes of basking in the sun. We have to catch every remaining sunlight and warmth left this season. In just a few moments the chill will settle again and we’d be stuck under the covers.
Bedroom window view. Not really a cityscape of a seascape, more roofscape. But there’s beauty in everything. Some people will take that roof, cut it up and call it shabby chic. Well look at my shabby chic view.
That’s it for now, maybe next time there’ll be another view and another part of the house haha.
