Making Whoopie

September 30, 2010

14

So far I have managed to resist the urge to make Whoopie Pies. Partly, because they are a bit fashionable but also because a lot of the recipes didn’t make sense to me. Then I saw Mowie’s recipe for red velvet Whoopies with orange buttercream. Here are the factors that led to me making them: I’ve […]

Polenta Bread

It occured to me that some of you may be getting bored of my monthly bread baking posts for Fresh From the Oven. So I will try to keep it brief and breezy but I won’t be offended if you don’t look at it. Stop looking. You don’t need to see this. Are you still here? […]

I made some cakes today so that Nell and Evie could decorate them as a little extra treat for their 3rd Birthday. Decorating cakes is a very serious business indeed and Nell concentrated on getting it just right. Meanwhile Evie was more inclined to eat the icing. I can’t blame her. I had a few spoonfuls too. […]

Honey Yoghurt Cheese

I like the ridges in this; like a fresh ricotta. You'd really never know that this can be fat-free as it is really creamy and 'heavy'. So there you go. Honey Yoghurt Cheese. Who knew?

Brown Sugar and Yoghurt Cake

This Brown Sugar Cake is reminiscent of a brownie, yet it’s not chocolatey. George thinks it’s the best cake ever! He IS my biggest fan. The main flavour comes from the 3 types of sugar: Demerara, granulated and muscovado. Plus some depth from vanilla extract and lemon zest. Then a couple of eggs, followed by flour and […]

Can you handle it?

Well, as it turns out yes I can. Claire’s father, Les, was a joiner by trade and no doubt had the usual set of joiners tools. The useful looking bits of his tool collection had drifted away over the years, so when we came to clear the garage prior to the house going on the […]

Disneyland Paris was excellent. We were very lucky, the skies were so blue. More photos in our Flickr set. I have started to collate a list of hints and tips to stay sane at Disney. All photos taken on our pocket Pentax or iPhone.

Summer Break #1

A few images of our trip to North Wales in late August 2010. Just to keep with the things we make tradition I took the leftover crumble topping from the bramble crumble post. I added an extra spoonful of butter then molded them into cookies and baked them on the oven for 10 minutes. Bonus oaty […]

Beautiful Vegetables

After returning from our recent trips away there were some interesting crops to collect from the garden. If there is something in the garden more beautiful than cream coloured borlotti beans, speckled with scarlet, in their scarlet pods speckled with cream, then I have yet to find it. Then there is the collection of crazy […]
