Remembering Nan

It's hard to believe that it's already been 12 months since Nan passed away. I've been thinking about it a lot during the week and knew that I wanted to do something to remember her today.

I couldn't think of anything better than to make one of her sponge cakes again, like we did the day after she died.

The boys were very excited to come home to a sponge on the bench after school. Jay said he remembered that Nan was always happy whenever we would go and visit her.  Harri said that he remembers Nan giving them treats out of the biscuit tin when we would go to her house.

The cake was devoured pretty quickly, and if I do say so myself I think it was pretty good.

I think Nan would be proud of my efforts.


  1. I was saying to someone the other day that I would like to learn how to make light sponge cakes. It's nice to see the traditional recipes being passed on. And I like the cream all over the cake, to give it a special look.

  2. Oh it looks so delectable!! :) I just loved Nan's sponge!!!

  3. Nanna's always bake the best stuff.. My Nan made the best shortbread!!!

  4. That looks yummy. Your Nan (and Pop) were so lovely xx

  5. That looks delicious! I can never serve it any other way, except Nan's way- With some icing sure dusted on top, cream in the middle and raspberry jam, it always has to be raspberry jam. I loved Nan's raspberry cordial and meringues too.

  6. Lisa she was the best and yes her sponges are superb I still have not mastered them as well as she ,has her secret.


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
