My lovely partner asked me to make him lemon turmeric sunflower cake yesterday.
He never asks for anything, so I was surprised. Luckily I had the ingredients and it’s in the oven.

I’m losing count of the number of times I’ve made this cake now!


I had a fleeting thought he might have asked me to do this because I’m at a bit of a loose end currently.
The process of making the cake mixture and spooning it into the sunflower mould is so relaxing.
I’m glad he asked, it’s an easy recipe and we’ll get to eat cake later.

I was thinking about making snow sunflowers with the mould. Once the cake’s out of the oven I may go outside and have a go.

At the moment the cake looks quite well done but the top is wobbly. Keeping a close eye on it in case it burns to a crisp!
