CHEAT version of Miniature Lemon Loaf Cake 💗

image

Its been a while since i last baked and today i finally managed to squeeze in some time to make a CHEAT version of Miniature Lemon Loaf Cake. Much thanks to Jo (a momma friend whom i had met through japanese class) for inspiring me once again. 🙂

I have always loved to bake. I enjoyed filling my home with the smell of freshly baked treats. The truth is, the root of my baking has always been for my children. Baking has always been a special bond for me and the kids together. As you can see, they definitely LOVE to help me in the kitchen.

This CHEAT version of Lemon Loaf Cake was influenced by Primrose Bakery recipe. Its ridiculously easy!!!

Ingredients
155g self-raising flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
130g golden caster sugar
20g cornflour
155g unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for greasing the tin
3 large eggs
grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

Heat up the oven to 160 degree C. Meanwhile, grease your loaf tin/line it with baking paper.

Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and cornflour into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the mixture for about 4 seconds until evenly mixed. Add the butter, eggs and lemon zest and juice and process briefly until evenly blended (about 10 seconds).

Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and level the top with a spatula. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf coms out clean. Let the loaf cool in its tin.

Ta-Daaa.. isn’t that ridiculously easy to make?

100% Pure Shampoo Review

Being a huge fan of 100% Pure, i have been trying out their products over the past couple of months now from skincare to makeup to nail care and now i’m truly hooked to their haircare.

What i love most about their haircare products are that its extremely gentle and suitable for all hair types including coloured treated hair. The past two years or so, i have been rather adventurous with my hair from perming to colouring to bleaching and it has indeed been a fun journey for me and my hair however i as fun as it may be to have a change every now and then, it is equally as important to maintain and take care of my hair as well. 100% Pure Hair Care are made from all natural formulation and does not contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, sulphites, or any other harsh ingredients that may cause further damage to the hair.

Being a huge fan, i decided to try their full series of hair care…

Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp – healthy scalp = healthy hair

Honey & Virgin Coconut Restorative – to restore dry, damaged hair

Kelp & Mint Volumizing – revitalizes bounce and body

Yuzu & Pomelo Glossing – for healthy, glossy locks

I first tried Yuzu & Pomelo Glossing for healthy glossy locks. I love the refreshing smell of yuzu and pomelo while it gives my hair a hydrating feel. The super gentle shampoo and conditioner washes away excess oil from my scalp while moisturising my locks with that brilliant shine, bounce and vibrancy that i longed for. Both the shampoo and conditioner contains ingredients such as Organic Rose Hydrofoil, Organic Aloe, Avocado, Flaxseed Oil, Virigin coconut, Rosemary, Lavender, Honey Suckle, Yuzu, Pink Grapefruit and many more wonderful natural and organic ingredients.

With such great results from Yuzu & Pomelo i moved on into trying Honey & Virgin Coconut Restorative shampoo and conditioner to restore my damage locks. Being a huge fan of coconut, this is by far my favourite, it deeply moisturises, repairs, softens and detangles dry, damage hair. I was truly amazed at how soft my hair felt. The ingredients in this product are amazing AND they are also organic such as Honey, Vitamin E, Oregano, Calendula, Goldenseal, Organic Flaxseed, Orange Peel, Organic Aloe, Coconut Oil, Lavender and more..

I always believe that it is always good to have our scalp cleanses at least once a week to remove the impurities and excessive oil stuck within the scalp. Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp did just that for me. A healthy scalp means you’ll have healthier hair hence, treating your scalp will help to purify, unclog the pores, stimulate circulation and help alleviate dryness, itching and flaking. Treating my hair with this hydrating formulation helps turn my hair healthy, nourished and vibrant. Both the shampoo and conditioner contains ingredients such as Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Organic Rose Hydrosol, Avocado, Organic Aloe, Lavender, Burdock, Coconut Oil, Neem Seed Oil, Orange and more..

Kelp & Mint Volumizing has helped to revitalised the bounce and body for my locks. Its invigorating, hydrating minty shampoo and conditioner helps to gently purifies while adding bounce, body and cluster. Nourishing formulation also helps makes the hair healthier, stronger and glossier. What i love about this product is that it contains Kelp which is known as nature’s hair thickener and fortifier while seaweed collagen adds the amazing shine on my hair. Ingredients in the products are Peppermint Essential Oil, Goldenseal, Thyme, Nettle, Kelp, Flaxseed Oil, Oregano, Lavender, Avocado, and more.
