Dinner for my men and a Special Cake...

Simply chicken and veg baked the healthy way, in it's own juices at 180 C in the oven until succulent.I used a tsp paprika, thyme, onion flakes and 4 fresh cloves of garlic along with salt and pepper to give it wonderful warm aromas....delicious!

Then for that wonderful cake!

The Recipe....or you could go here... was not as pretty as hers!~♥

1/2 cup marg
1 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten
2 TBSP milk
1 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
150g milk chocolate buttons
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar.
The last 2 items are for the top/crust
Grease and flour baking tins. Cream sugar and marg til creamy..and add eggs. Mix til light and fluffy.
Sift the dry ingredients except the last two. Set aside. Mix milk and sour cream. Add the milk mixture  alternately with the dry ingredients to the egg/butter mixture. Spoon half into the prepared tins. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar over this then add the rest of the butter and then the cinnamon/sugar remainder on top.
Bake at 180 C for 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
 I made two cakes with this batter... one for us and the other for my older son's pad! Decorate with some more chocolate discs.
(Monique, what a stunning little cake...merci~♥)
