Day 270 - Honey cake

Kitchen duty today, and it's a lenten day (Elevation of the Cross) so I didn't have a clue what I was going to bake since I couldn't use eggs or dairy. Finally I settled for honey, cinnamon and nutmeg cake which is the easiest cake in the world to make, and quick too.

We made piroshki as always. Today's selection was rice and mushroom, cabbage and onion, and potato - both fried and baked, as well as the sweet ones with apple and dusted with sugar. These are the baked ones, a slightly healthier choice (although they all usually give me heartburn). You definitely couldn't live on these for very long, but they're quite good hot once in a while.

I took a picture of my son's god-daughter because I love her intensely focussed expression.


  1. Your cake was delicious and was enjoyed by all when I got home today. Sophie is always focused when it comes to food!

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the honey cake. I had to move away from Sophie while eating a pirozhok and when she decided she didn't want her formula after all. She knows there's more interesting stuff out there that other people are eating.
