1. How to Cook

I’m excited to share these with you guys!! Especially because it’s no secret that when it comes to breakfast recipes, more times than not, I’m going to share something on the sweeter side. It’s not that I don’t love a savory breakfast recipe, because I do. It’s more that I enjoy sweet breakfast recipes in the morning and savory eggs for lunch or dinner…but that’s just me! Anyway, the point is, I rarely share savory breakfast recipes, so I’m overly excited to share these.

2. Easy recipe

How cute are these recipes? When I set out to make these, I really wasn’t sure how they would turn out. But I ended up loving the recipe! Sometimes I go into a recipe very unsure about it. But it’s the best when I’m presently surprised by the outcome…just love when that happens! And, these cakes couldn’t be easier to make or more delicious.



Main ingredients


  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cornflour

  • 1 or 2 Tbsp milk (if needed)

Instructions


  1. In a large bowl add butter, vanilla, and icing sugar then mix until light and pale.
  2. Add flour, cornflour, and salt. Mix until the dough is formed. (If for whatever reason the dough is crumbly add a little bit of milk. If the dough is too sticky to handle add a little bit of flour.)
