An Afternoon with Friends

An afternoon with a special friend (and neighbour), a delicious cake, some sweet biscuits and kids scooting here and there - is truly the best way to unwind after a busy day.

I ended up baking the cake that we shared.  I used a recipe that a dear friend shared with me from way back when we lived in Perth.  Paddy was a wee one and Grace was still our little dream.  It's funny how recipes conjure up special feeling and emotions from a certain time in your life.

I love this recipe.  It has no eggs or butter and is so wholesome and delicious.  So good, that I wanted to share the recipe with you, too.
