nonnaB, I have just shown my husband your pictures and he is drooling. He says can you send one over, just a small one will do. He says he has got his own spoon.:biggrin:

Big or small lasagne Carni , think the arancino will fit into an envelope or if he wants two I'll pop them into a padded packet.

Fried 15 at lunch time, my daughter and I had 3 each, gave my son 5 for his family, Alex had 1 and the other 3 hes taken to the trainee chef to try.

Mix all ingredients using a mixer or for longer by hand using wooden spoon until a slightly dripping consistancy

Pre heat oven to 170/180, 160 for a fan oven

grease two 7-8 inch  round baking trays (I use butter to grease them,when oven upto temp pour equal amounts of mixture into trays and put in oven,for 40 minutes,but keep an eye on them

Icing

Put sugar into a bowl with juice of half the lemon and tablespon of whisky,mix using a spoon until loose dripping consistancy and put aside,

 

when cakes are ready turn out on a wire rack until cool,level off one half of the cakes and spread with lemon marmalade,put other half of cake on top to form the sandwich,put cake on a plate and and using a cocktail stick or fork stab top of cake all over, slowly drizzle with sugar/lemon/whisky mix allow to soak into the cake,keep repeating the drizzle part until all gone or until you think you have enough drizzle on the cake,allow to soak in and wait until sugar has crystalized on top

Cut a slice and enjoy,(bet you can't just have one slice)

Got all ingredients weighed and measured, panic .....no whisky. Every spirit and liquore imaginable but no whisky. Brandy ? Noooo. Last of homemade Limoncello seeing as it has lemon zest in. Yes I think that will work....( hope so)

Result . Well the cake turned out beautifully soft. I added lemon zest and 1 tbsp limoncello. For the topping I did the same as Plantfit but used limoncello instead of whisky. 

Cake cooled down as my daughter came over, made two small slices for us to try. Result.......mum it's awful, "are you sure" she insisted....then picked up the plate and said" bye see you later". 

It was really , really delicious. 

Went out this morning and was out until about 4 pm. The cake was still on the plate but half was missing. Now there is only a quarter left ! Oh I did put a few cubes of crystallised ginger in too.

Have to make another tomorrow unfortunately ;)

The cake turned out beautifully and was very yellow as I'd used very yellow yolked eggs that are used for making homemade pasta. This morning the " mice or that stranger that comes and goes" has finished it off.;)

Did a silly thing yesterday. Fancied copying Plantfits  peach turn overs with flaky pastry. I'd got some filo pastry so thought I would make little baskets of it , hanging over a cup for the shape. They turned out really nice looking. The only thing was I forgot to grease the cups and they stuck like glue. I had to break the pastry off and leave the cups soaking.:wacko:

This afternoon I made three crostate and 11/2 dozen scones. I now have 4 left after having tea and scones for snack ( in 4 of us) and giving 5 to my granddaughter for her snack on returning from school.

Tomorrow is biscuit day and maybe hotcross buns. For freezer.

Blimey nonnaB, that's wetted my appetite for something sweet, but totally taboo this afternoon as I'm out for a meal tonight, and I don't want to spoil it ! It's a treat for my eldest daughter and her hubby !
