Beautiful Living: Baking for family and friends.

Those sweet old days ...
When I was a young boy, I loved watching my 2nd elder sister baking. She was the only one in the family who has the talent in baking. Often I offered help whipping eggs or sifting flour and eventually stirred the baking mixture. I was a great assistant and often when she was not paying attention, I would have a spoonful of cake dough in my mouth! She never caught me doing that! I remembered vividly she used to bake rock cake, which is also one of my favorites especially with a cup of sweet cream tea.

Life is beautiful!
I am sharing a rock cake recipe with you. You can bake a dozens of these rock cakes and bring them to office or invite a few friends come over your apartment/house for tea party or just deliver to your neighbor or friends with a friendly note. A simple thing like this would bring a surprise smile to people around you.
Rock Cakes
2 cups of self-raising flour
1/4 tsp salt

1 egg
