    I used wholemeal spelt flour and added tumeric. It’s save to say these where a hit with my old lad Mac.

    The first cake I baked was for my fur-baby Coco. I didn’t have convection then, only had a microwave oven. Tried in that and it was…..ok.. like edible.
    But as I kept baking there, I fell in love with the art of baking.
    Now I got a brand new oven with all the features… Trying all your recipes one by one.
    I love your recipes so much…
    Novice baker so hiccups are there.. but I will get there someday….
