Boke Cake Day

Today is "Boke Cake" day. That day of the month where I make myself make a cake. It's funny because I do it no matter what mood I'm in or what I've got planned on that day I make a point of making a cake. It's been good for me today though because of the old mental health stuff. It wasn't a chore today. It was pure fun. Probably because I have digital scales now. I recommend people do it. You get a homemade cake out of it at the end. Very simple recipe:

  1. Weigh your eggs (however many you want but I usually use two).
  2. Weigh out the same weight as eggs in butter, caster sugar and self-raising flour.
  3. Mix it all up, until a great consistency.
  4. Pour it into a greaseproof paper lined tin..
  5. Cook until you can stick a knife into it and it comes out with no batter on it. 
  • Add other ingredients for fun. Raisins, coconut, hot chocolate powder. Thats it.
For my tea I had Quorn Steak, homemade chips and mushy peas. I might even have a cheeky non-alcoholic beer in a bit. I've done all my chores and stuff. I've even done the washing up. I've earned it. I've even got cake to eat. Woooooot!

Watching a Netflix series called "The Family". I can tell I'm going to plow through it tonight. In fact, I'm only allowwed myself to binge it if all my housework was done and I made a cake. I'm being strict but I'm also rewarding myself.
