52 week project – Sri Lankan Cookbook – Sultana Rice

This week has been quite hectic as I am preparing a party for my little one who is turning 5. The time this week has been in bits and pieces and no real blocks of time to do anything really productive which can be quite frustrating! Still I wanted to get this Sultana Rice recipe out this week before I lost a week… I have been baking a rainbow cake but the time restraints has me just making one cake with a marble rainbow effect on the inside. Still I have to decide on what will be happening on the outside – yikes! Anyway I have enjoyed the cake baking with one fail and a success of the other cake, though we will see as it has not been iced yet.
