At first I thought you had solved my problem Kylie, but then I read your second thought. Oh dear, decisions, decisions

This is the ginger cake recipe I use and it really is lovely (but I do add a little more ginger), so I think it will be this and I'll save the chocolate cake for later (btw it might serve 6 but it is good for 1 too)

Oh msmofet, I'm so sorry. It is a recipe from Levi Roots Levi Roots - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for a Jamaican ginger cake. I don't know why it won't show as it is on the web here. Maybe you could try to google it yourself and find one. I'll try here too.

Boo, hoo...we finished the pineapple upside down cake last night so it's time to crank the oven up for something sweet.

Haven't made cookies in a while and Glenn likes old-fashioned peanut butter cookies. Have all the fixins' for them so after I do a little cleaning the cookies will get baked.

If I have time and the spirit moves me I may make some malted milk cookies. They use crushed up malted milk balls, like Whoppers. They're really good and I also have all the ingredients. We'll see. But, definitely peanut butter cookies!!!!

Katie...the cake must have been good since it is all gone already

Your malted milk cookies sound delicious...dont think they would be around for long either
