My new baby: #Sunshinegirlbakes

I know I have not been posting for a while. And this post isn’t even beauty related. But yeah, this kept me busy for the past few months. I sold my cookies last year and this year, I tried experimenting early on with my cookies recipes so I can launch early.

Baking Lemon Drizzle Cake

When we moved to the new house 3 years ago, my only request to my parents was to have a space in the kitchen for an oven.  I didn’t mind paying for the oven because I know that I will be able to do more recipes that required baking. I already tried baking savory meals since then but I have not tried baking breads or pastries.

A few weeks ago, I watched Anna‘s video wherein she baked a Lemon Drizzle Cake. Lily Pebbles was raving about the cake so I was tempted to make it. I don’t like sweets very much but since this involved lemons, I know it won’t be overly sweet. I thought the ingredients were fairly easy to find locally and it was not that hard to make. I didn’t have a mixer but Chard said I could do it by hand.
