Mixed Berry Loaf Cake

So my personal life has gotten busier and kept me from blogging as often as I would like.  After putting my hand up for a position going at work, freaking out about it, being offered the job, and then freaking out some more, my head has been all over the place lately.  I have been spending a lot of time preparing for my new role (which by the way is totally out of my comfort zone), training up my minions on the jobs I currently do, and basically giving myself pep talks about what a great opportunity this is, and that I can actually do it.

In the meantime, I did make a mean loaf cake which has gotten me through this week.  I adapted it slightly from allrecipes.com, but it’s so simple and delicious that I have totally made it twice already.
