A Rain Rhyme that Involves Baking a Cake

Here’s a rain rhyme from Northumberland that reminds us that rainy weather is a good opportunity to stay indoors and cook!

Rain, rain, go away,
And come again another day,
When I brew and when I bake,
I’ll give you a little cake.

Stay dry!

Mama Lisa

It's raining cake!

PS You can tell it’s raining where I am and that I’m considering baking something yummy!

    “I’ll give you a $ADJECTIVE cake” is a “floater” line, it’s part of a lot of nursery rhymes:

    Bat, bat, come under my hat
    I’ll give you a slice of bacon
    And when I bake
    I’ll give you a cake
    If I am not mistaken

    or

    Come, butter, come
    Come, butter, come
    Peter’s waiting at the gate
    I’ll give him a butter cake
    Come, butter, come.
