I have been very busy writing my book but that is not why I am posting though.
I am posting some photos for everyone that I took at various places in the United Kingdom!
I hope you like them!
Chocolate sponge cake!
Today I baked a chocolate sponge cake loaf – here is how I made it!
Ingredients that you will need:
115g Self raising flour
115g Caster Sugar
115g Butter / Margarine
2 x Eggs
As much baking chocolate as you like – as long as you want it chocolatey!
First of all pre heat the oven to between 150/175 degrees!
Grease a loaf tin – don’t forget that part.
Measure out all of the ingredients on measuring scales, then put them together and mix them together thoroughly, in a slow motion. Once complete, it should be into a soft mixture without any lumps in it.
Fetch a loaf tin and grease it with butter and fill it with the soft mixture you have just created. Put the cake in the middle of the oven which you have pre heated. You can put the mixture into cupcake holders instead if you like.
Bake the cake for 25 minutes!
It should rise in the oven, if you stick a fork into the middle of the cake – to tell if it’s done, prod a fork in the middle. Note that no soft eggy mixture comes out on the fork. If it does you need to leave it longer.
Gosh – Hi everyone!
I have been off for WordPress for a little while. I wanted to let everyone know that I have just finished writing my very first draft of The Sugary-Sherburts — BOOK 3! If you have never read my other books, they are kidslit and I wrote my first one when I was 10.
I haven’t written a book in a while though, and I know that the most difficult bit is next, proof reading and editing, then getting the pictures organised. Its very exciting though?!
Here is a video I made for it
The book awards are new to my blog, but I thought they would be useful to kids my age. If you are my age, like young teen and are looking for some exciting books to read, here are some good suggestions. You probably all know that I love reading – I have been very busy reading in 2014.
Here are my top four books of the year 2014!
At number 4 – A year without Autumn by Liz Kessler!
On her way to visit her best friend Autumn, the character called Jenni suddenly finds she’s exactly one year forward in time. I was recommended this book by someone on my blog, it was a great book. The writing is really good and it is quite funny!
At number 3 – The Maze Runner by James Dashner!
I loved the Maze Runner. It is about a boy called Thomas who is transported to a terrible maze, and he is trapped with a group of other children. It was nail biting and I couldn’t put it down!
At number 2 – Awful Auntie by David Walliams!
I don’t think that David Walliams can ever beat Gangsta Granny, but I read this book in 24 hours and I couldn’t put it down. It is about a 12 year old girl called Stella and her grim auntie Alberta!
At number 1 – The Book Thief – by Markus Zusak
Gosh I loved the book thief. I loved that it is so different to all the other books I have read. I am doing about WW2 at school and it is nice to see a different side of the ww2. It is narrated by Death and I liked the whole book from start to finish – this book is easily a 10/10
Well that’s it for now, I hope you enjoyed my post!
Have you read any of these?
Recently I have read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling and I thought I would write a blog post about it.
My friends couldn’t believe that I had never read Harry Potter books before. I have tried but never really got into them. The film had put me off. However my friend lent me their copy of The Philosophers Stone a few weeks ago. It’s an enjoyable book, when I actually gave it time, I couldn’t put it down.
Basically, Harry Potter’s parents were killed when Harry was little and he went to live with his Aunt and Uncle – which he hated thoroughly! Harry started receiving hundreds of letters which his evil uncle just burnt. However they didn’t know that the letter was to tell Harry that he had been accepted into Hogwarts. As days went on the Uncle took Harry away and then Hagrid (school assistant) gave them all the good news – well good news to Harry anyway.
I really like this book because most of the time there’s always something big or small happening, the writing is brilliant which keeps you interested. I struggled to keep interest towards the end when the action got less and less but I kept on going and glad it didn’t put me off the book.
I would recommend this book for 7 – 12 year olds (boys or girls!) I give it five out of five stars!
My next book in the series is the “Chamber of Secrets”.
Has anyone read this book? Do you love Harry Potter?
