' Apple dumpling pouch

My apple dumpling pouch for a swap!

Happy Monday everyone!

I figured I never actually showed you the little apple dumpling pouch I have been sewing for a swap! So here it is:

I thought little red riding hood is a perfect match for any apple themed swap, so that´s what I did!

I also sent along some hexies for partner! The fabric is the original Far Far Away print by Heather Ross:

And an apple pincushion:

Have a great start into the new week everyone!

Recipe for Orange-Lemon-Cake on Fabulous Food Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

It´s baking time on our little blog today!!!

Yummy Orange-Lemon-Cake

200g butter
200g sugar
1 Tbs vanilla sugar
200g flour
50g corn starch
2 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
zest of one lemon and some more orange zest
juice of one lemon and one orange

Mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time and stir until it turns really creamy. Mix flour, corn starch, baking powder and lemon and orange zest and stir in only very shortly. 

Bake in a greased cake tin at 180°C for 45 minutes. Leave to cool in tin for 15 minutes, then take out and take a wooden pick to poke a lot of small holes into your cake. Soak with the mix of the lemon and orange juice.

Have an awesome weekend!!!
