Pumpkin Cake, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

 THIS  is the recipe to make the yummiest gorgeous Pumpkin cake!

 I needed something to use up my pumpkin puree which has been in my freezer since Halloween week and found the recipe when googling pumpkin puree!

However I did ruin it by filling it with orange butter cream before it has totally cooled. Oops.

With all the decorations and dressing up for Halloween Boo decided it must be someones birthday and so we ‘had’ to have a cake! So we made a ‘graveyard cake’.

It is plain and chocolate sponge marbled together covered in chocolate and richtea bisuits decorated with black writing icing for the gravestones!

I’d like to take the credit for this, but unfortunately it’s not my work!

Boo wanted a Scooby Doo cake (or rather Scoopy Doopy as he calls him) for his 3rd birthday so after baking a large flat chocolate cake in a roasting tin (couldn’t get a cake tin big enough) I had to hand over to  (a very artistic) Mr W who came up with this masterpiece (all cut and drawn free hand – no stencils etc used!).

I always cook my Chickens in the slow cooker and then, when I have taken the chicken out and carved the meat, I put all the bones back in to the slow cooker and top up with water, a couple of carrots, an onion and some herbs out of the garden. I leave it on low all night and in the morning I have a huge pot of Chicken stock, usually for making home made soup, but is also really nice for Risottos etc

This week I have made Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup.

Ingredients

 Approx 1.5ltrs Chicken Stock, 3  Sweet Potatoes (Peeled & Cut into chunked), 2 Small onions (Peeled & Diced), 1 Clove of Garlic (Peeled and Crushed), A hand full of lentils of your choice (Soaked/washed/cooked according to pack guidelines)

I drained the stock through a muslin cloth and left it to stand so the fat would seperate. After removing the fat I returned the stock to the slow cooker and switched onto High.

In a pan  par boil  the lentils for 10 mins (obviously depends on what kind of lentil you are using)

Then I put some olive oil in another pan along with 2 small onions, 3 Sweet Potatoes and a clove of garlic, put the lid on and left them to sweat until the onion was transparent (Make sure they do not stick/burn!)

Then I added the all of these ingredients to the stock in the slow cooker and left to cook for 3hrs.

Then Puree’d with a hand blender and served with Cheese and Herb Loaf!

Sorry for the awful photos! Forgot to take pictures once it was actually served!

Here are a few pictures I have added as Faves on Flickr recently, saving them for ‘inspiration’

Inspiration by you.

1. This picture of Vienna I found on a swapbot partners Flickr Photostream, I’ve saved it as we need to paint the back of our house (downstairs) and I can’t decide what colour to go for!

2. Oragami Hearts – One of my missi0n 101 goals is to make a piece of oragami, I like the look of these hearts so will have to find out how to make them.

3. Matchbox/buttons swap! – I LOVE Buttons (always have done) also would love to try a matchbox swap, this one looks fab.

4. Cupcakes 🙂 – I love cupcakes, really want to make some really pretty pink ones like this. However my  2yr old can’t have any artificial colours and also Beetroot (used in non-artificial colouring) so seems a bit cruel to make them when he can’t have them? May have to make him some white ones 🙂

5. ATCs – After looking on swapbot and Flickr, I’d love to give ATCs a go (could be my ‘new’ craft for my mission 101) I have someone from swapbot who is willing to trade with me so when I get chance (after the farm animals!!) I may give it a go.

6. How amazing is this play house???? I LOVE it! I’d love the boys to have a play house, although this one is maybe a little bit girly for them.

7. Charm Bracelet – I started collecting charms again for my silver charm bracelet last year, I would love it to be as full as this one 🙂

8. St Ives. I love it there. Hopefully we may be going for a short break in October and ultimately we would love to move to Cornwall/Devon (after I finish University!)

9. St Ives again.
