Rainy Saturday afternoons....

....Are meant for baking!
 Today's recipes for weight gain and diabetes are - 

* Carrot Tea-cake*

First time I have made carrot cake and it won't be the last! 
The cake is lovely and moist and the cream cheese frosting sets it off wonderfully.
I got the recipe from Martha Stewart's website - Check it out!!

* Chocolate Orange Cookies *

Proper American style squidgy delicious cookies!
These will not last long!
So much better than ones you buy from the supermarkets and way better than the ones made from a box of cookie mix, really quick and simple to make so no excuses not to make your own!
I got the recipe from a great new blog I discovered a few days ago called Eat Cake For Dinner - not that I need any more encouragement ha ha ha!
The recipe can be found here - the only changes I made was to substitute orange rind for orange flavouring as that was all I had to hand. Check out the other recipes on the blog, every last one of them look mouth wateringly tasty, I simply HAVE to make the Neapolitan whoopie pies!

Hope everyone else is having a great Saturday whatever the weather!
