A new flavour combination for a new day


This is exciting new cake is freshly baked and cooling, it consists of apricot and papaya, as it is a combination that I haven’t yet tried and I needed to bake something today.  It has risen better than I expected and expect to taste as good as it looks.

Once it has cooled down sufficiently and tasted I’ll come back and reveal whether it passed with flying colours or failed dismally.


Christmas Cake Anyone?

001    These delicious and freshly baked Christmas cakes are unusual a with the fruit mix as they contain cranberry and apricot, the other being they are dairy free .  The cake on the left hand side of the picture also contains mixed spice to give it  a christmas feel to it and the other has freshly grated nutmeg also to give it that hint of christmas.  One will be frozen and marzipan and iced later in the lead up to christmas week and one will be passed on so that my partner can enjoy the cake as well.  I’m thrilled that both cakes have turned out so well and both baked in under an hour.  I will be making mince pies tomorrow as is my want and the pastry will be dairy free again, as I’ll be using Pure Sunflower spread as I have no reaction to that and there may be further pictures to post during the weekend
