My mum's birthday is coming up and I would like to bake something for her to show my appreciation for all that she has done for me, but I have no idea what I should bake. I don't need anything too special, just something that taste good. I'll appreciate any other suggestions too! (please do tell me where I can locate the recipes though)

You could also try a Pavolova recipe, it can turn out looking weird but ohh if you've got a sweet tooth, your mum will be hooked. Pavlova Ingredients: 6 Egg Whites 1 1/2 cups Castor Sugar 1 1/2tbsp Cornflour 1 1/2tbsp Vinegar 1tsp Vanilla Method: Whisk egg whites slightly, add all remaining ingredients gradually and whisk on a fast speed until firm peaks form. Pour meringue into a well greased spring form tin forming a hollow in the centre to create a traditional pavlova shape. Bake at 160C for 1hr 10mins. I have more recipes and some pics in my discussions if you are interested just add me as a friend
