I, ahem, caramelised some cherry scones
I made a loaf of seeded granary - almost gone..
I made some toffee buns and some Aunty Olive's.
I had an idea for the topping of the toffee buns, I made a ganache, using weight for weight double cream and
I planted some little winter pansies and a silvery thing atop my hopefully amazing purple Spring bulb display.
Right that's my Monday done with. Nothing much to report really. I've nearly finished one of the umpteen knits I've got going. Photos soon.
Lots of love from

All gone already?! Wow, there's some hungry bodies in your house! Mind you, it all looks so scrumptious I'm not surprised it's all been eaten. Love the look of that loaf, I do like granary bread.....a bit too much actually.ReplyDelete
Not much to report!!?? Flipping heck, I dread to think what you'd accomplish on a busy day. I'm seriously put to shame. Your baking looks delicious. I really want to eat cake now. XReplyDelete
There's much sitting down between items on the above list. I'd describe myself as super sedentary!Delete
You found some Caramac - how lovely!ReplyDelete
I bought 16 bars!!Delete
I love a baking day, when I had a house full it seemed to be every other day. Now I just make 2 cakes every now and then and then share them round my friends.ReplyDelete
I do love a day of baking too - normarily I will always decide upon one the week I begin a diet!Delete
Great baking - those chocolate fairy cakes look really good!ReplyDelete
Apparently they were!! I never even got one!Delete
Blimey! The Cooking Fairies certainly got hold of you didn't they?! Love the look of that loaf.... :o)ReplyDelete
It didn't last long at all!!Delete
Lovely bakes but please, what are Aunty Olives? Thanks Rachel!ReplyDelete
Oooo see next post Karen xxDelete
Did the bubbles go pop all over your nose like they always did when I tried for monster big bubble?ReplyDelete
Mmmmmm Caramac - now need to search that out
I didn't manage such a big one sadly! It didn't seem as elastic as it used to be...probably had to remove that ingredient for health n safety!Delete
The silvery thing is called dusty miller.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kathy! I think I'll remember that a lot more easily than Phillip's correct name for it!Delete
That's a marathon baking session if ever I saw one and it all looks delicious, no wonder it's all gone. I bought Amy a caramac ice cream lolly years ago and she still asks for them, but I can't find them anywhere, not even in the shop where all good Mums go. Just looking at that picture of the bubbly gum has brought the taste of it right back to me. No 10p mix up was complete without one.xxReplyDelete
10p mix up!!! We used the exact words! We could choose when we were little, a 10p mix up OR a bag of rainbow drops and a Freddo!Delete
I would have eaten that sauce from the pan, withput any remorse or guilt whatsover!ReplyDelete
