A collection of our favourite pancake recipes.

Marshmallow Pavlova Cake

August 5, 2012

34

It's kind of marshmallow, doing an impression of a meringue, made into a fruity pavlova-style cake. You get me?

Fruity Breakfast Loaf

We do like a fruity loaf. I made up this recipe on the hoof but it worked out just right for Sunday breakfast.

Caramel Apple Cloud Pancake

May 18, 2012

Oh really...more oven baked pancakes? I know, I know, but this one is another winner. I promise. It's a good way to turn a crisp green apple into a decadent dessert for two or a greedy breakfast for one. What's not to like?

Pretty Pear Jelly

September 20, 2011

Last week I found myself with a surfeit of pears. The one and only William pear from my own little tree, plus a whole basket of mixed pears from my friendly neighbours. I used the soft William pears in another Pear and Almond Cake but still had lots of conference pears left. I knew that […]

Tayberry’s last chance

August 29, 2011

1

Me and the Tayberry are going to fall out. It promises fragrant purple berries, but at the moment the rewards are outweighed by the strife. In spring 2010 I planted a raspberry, a loganberry and a tayberry against the brick wall that runs alongside our vegetable beds. I wrote about the reasons for choosing the […]

These Foolish Things

Why I have never made a fool before I don't know. Light, tangy, sweet, fruity, creamy, easy, beautiful.

Not-so-mini Pavlovas

May 19, 2011

I have always, always loved pavlova. I think it stems from my delight at the frozen ones bought from the Cash & Carry back in the 70′s. A raspberry pavlova was the height of chic in those days, even though my Mum used to forget to get it out of the freezer so we ended up […]

Redcurrant Jelly

August 3, 2010

Once upon a time our garden was full of fruit bushes. With a small boy to amuse we had to pulled up the fruit bushes so that he had a lawn to play on. There is only one redcurrant bush left and this year I built a fortress around it to stop the blackbirds eating the […]

Last Minuten Stollen

December 28, 2009

4

This month’s “Fresh From The Oven” challenge was to make a Stollen. Now I have to admit to reservations about this one. Not least that I don’t like marzipan, but I also knew things would be quite hectic on the run up to Christmas and that I would not have chance to get it done. […]

Absence makes the garden grow faster

August 21, 2009

We got back from 5 days away on Monday and had a great time camping in Snowdonia. I always love getting home though, not only do I miss home itself, but it’s always good to see what the garden has been up to. When we got back from our holiday last year we were surprised to find that […]
