Breakfast Run – June 2020

The report and photos are up.. you can check them out here..


So good to get out and meet our MG Car Club friends at McLaren Vale, the first Breakfast Run since February.

I met Jeanie and Haydn Reynolds, new members who own an MGF (courtesy of the Dick Manning collection). For some of us baking has been to the fore in the past few months, so it was no surprise to see baked morning tea.

Barb Harrington shared her chocolate/caramel muffins, the link to the recipe is – and then enter Cappuccino cupcakes. I made a jubilee cake (my Auntie Glad’s super easy recipe).

Jeanie asked me to put it into the magazine, so here it is.
