The recipe is from Peggy Porschen’s Boutique Baking book but without the jam filling as I prefer them without it. Recipe is as follows – Cake mix – 200g unsalted butter 200g caster sugar pinch of salt seeds of…

When Kitchenaid sent me out one of their  Kitchenaid Mini mixers in the most gorgeous shade of pink I was beyond thrilled as I love to bake and had borrowed my daughter’s Kitchenaid mixer a few times and was so impressed with it.  I particularly loved it for making cupcakes, sponges, cheesecakes  and  French macarons which are all in the recipe section of my blog.
