raewyn64, May 15, 8:15am
I want to make a morning tea thank you for Tuesday morning. I would really like, if possible, to make it tomorrow (Sunday) and have it ready for Tuesday but want it nice a fresh. Want something sweet - cake, muffin or something.
Any suggestions on what will stay nice a fresh?
Thanks in advance.

Lemon Yoghurt Cake
This recipe has been in the family for over 25 years it was given to my Mother a friend in Seattle hence the use of a "bundt" tin. Bundt tins are available for sale in our catalogue. The cake keeps extremely well and freezes beautifully. Just remember to grease tin well with butter and dust with flour, shaking off the excess before filling with mixture.
Ingredients:
1 & 3/4 cups caster sugar
rind 2-3 lemons
2 eggs
1 cup sunflower oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt (not low fat)
2-3 tsp lemon juice
2 cups self raising flour
Method:
Beat eggs, oil, sugar and peel together in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order above. Butter and flour a 24cm bundt tin . Bake at 180C for thirty minutes. Test with a cake tester. Let cake rest only 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Dust cold cake with sifted icing sugar.

Fejoia loaf (since they are in season and cheap/free) is a great keeper in a tin. Take some butter and cut thick slices... . they will love it with a cuppa. Make 2 or 3 loaves depending on the numbers you are feeding.

Thanks everyone once again for some great suggestions.
Looks like it is time for me to get busy and do some baking - and then hide it from hubby so it will still be in one piece for morning tea on Tuesday :)
