It’s been raining for quite a few days now, and when it rains..you need a warm cup of tea with some yummy cake! I wasn’t looking forward to getting wet in the rain (even if it meant going by car, haha) so I stayed at home, and my little sister decided to..bake! And what’s amazing is, she is quite a little masterchef; she whipped up this apple cinnamon cake in no time! (We preheated the oven and supervised the baking bit). Sometimes, it’s pretty amazing what a kid can do. Like this apple cinnamon cake, for example.
