Baking an orange olive oil cake // A touchpoint map

  • De-stress with Food network before heading to work on a Saturday morning
  • Get inspired by uber perky TV host
  • Spend a productive morning in the office
  • Buy remaining ingredients including 5 oranges though you only need two because the supermarket sells them in a bundle of 5 (on hindsight, it was a good move to get more oranges)
  • Lunch
  • Bake
  • Initiate taste-test with the Mister and Munckin
  • Critique "It's quite dry..." said the Mister
  • Get into problem-solving mode
  • Slather raspberry preserves as Munckin clamours for more "Mama... Mama..." 
  • Use the opportunity to teach him about patience
  • Friends arrive, serve minicakes. Munckin polishes off one on his own.
  • Thank your lucky stars for kinder-than-thou friends  
  • Smother your kid's chubby-cheeks with all the love you can muster

Improvisations from the original recipe for mum's birthday lunch:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, instead of 1 1/4 cups
  • 1/2 cup sugar, instead of 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3, instead of 2, eggs
  • Juice and zest of 1 orange (about 4 tablespoons juice, 2 tablespoon zest)

A recipe to have and hold xx
