Introducing my beautiful baby niece Maya! ~ Apple and Blueberry Cake

I would like to apologize for not having blogged much recently, it's been a busy time for my family and I recently. My beautiful baby niece Maya arrived into the world on Sunday 8th June at 7.34am!! She is absolutely precious and looks just like my sister.


I feel like I haven’t baked anything in weeks but I did bake my favourite Chocolate-Lime cheesecake by Nigella Lawson on Sunday for Father’s day but naughty me didn’t take pics! My parents are over from Spain and have been staying with my sister and helping out with the baby but this weekend they are coming to stay with us, as it’s my son’s 16th birthday (still can’t believe my son is going to be 16). So I decided to bake this Apple and Blueberry Cake, a simple but yummy cake to have for when they arrive, plus my dad adores apple cakes so I can’t let down mi papa! ! I am sure this cake will go down a treat.

She's got so much hair - just like my daughter did (did your sister get indigestion - I did and apparently its a sign of a baby with lots of hair - don't ask me why though!?)! So cute , congratulations!

Maria said...

Thank you so much for the wonderful kind comments!

Beth my sister did have bad indigestion and her mid-wife also said that was a sign of a baby with lots of hair!! So it must be true ;o)
