Cookie Cake Recipe

Hey Internet Friends,

Today I thought I'd share with you one of my absolute favourite recipes. Now, this is something I make a lot because it's so delicious. It even works well as a birthday cake...COOKIE CAKE!!!

Ingredients:
  • 110g dark brown soft sugar
  • 4tbsp caster sugar
  • 110g softened butter
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 175g plain chocolate chips (or Smarties/M&M's)
Method:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Line the base of a round tin (about 10-12 inches wide) with greaseproof paper.
  3. Cream together dark sugar, caster sugar and butter until smooth.
  4. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
  5. Combine the flour with bicarbonate of soda and stir into the mix. The dough should be fairly stiff.
  6. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  7. Spread or pat the dough onto the tin and bake for 15-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
I hope you enjoy trying this recipe and find it as easy to make and as yummy as I do.

Thoughtful Thursday - School Pressure

Hey Internet Friends,
So, it's getting to that time of year (if you're in a year group that has to do exams) where suddenly all your deadlines for things like coursework have appeared right in front of you. All you're teachers are expecting things from you and want you to prioritise their subject. How do you deal with this?

1) Plan ~ Keep a diary or calendar nearby at all times so you can note down all your exams and deadlines. Then, create timetables for each day with what you need to get done. If you struggle to stick to timings, just create a to-do list each day. This ensures you don't forget anything and don't leave it till last minute.

2) Breaks ~ You must give yourself time off. You can't expect to get a ton of work done in a single day. Break it up and you'll find it all so much easier to manage. During breaks do things you enjoy.

3) Mindfulness ~ If you are a particularly anxious or stressed person, try mindfulness. I have created a post about it before (click here) as I found it something that has really helped me cope with stress.

Hope this has helped some of you. Anything else that helps some of you, let me know through social media or below in the comments.

Hey Internet Friends,

I wrote a short poem about weather and thought I'd share it with you. Sorry if my posts haven't been as good recently, under a lot of stress with school as I'm sure a load of you are too.
