While I wait for the timer to go off, I'm just wondering who else is baking today and what yummy goodies they are making :D

It's Australia Day on Tuesday and I have several Aussie workmates so I've made some Anzac biscuits to bring to work.

Also while the oven was heated I thought I might as well make a cake so I've thrown a Victoria sponge in there and I'll sandwich it together with lemon curd, for a change.

Anyone else baked something tasty today?

    Quiche lorraine and vanilla ice cream (although not technically baked) to use up some cream and then later I will make toad in the hole and a chocolate fudge pudding

    Maybe even make some 4 ingredient scones using lemonade or some shortbread using cornflour... yum yum

    All your baking sounds yummy :)

    I'm still starting out in my domestic goddess ways, but today I have prepared a lamb pie for tomorrow's dinner & baked some jam tarts with the left over pastry. Tomorrow I'm going to tackle mince pies (wrong time of year I know!!) :D
