We were lucky enough to be given some fresh walnuts from a neighbour, so making a coffee and walnut cake was a perfect opportunity to use them! (…oh, and it’s my favourite cake…) As always, made using local @cotswoldflour.
It’s great to be teaching in-person classes again. A busy but fun weekend teaching two private baking classes, a savoury picnic food class on Saturday and a Parisian-style Macaron class on Sunday. Fortunately the weather was cooperative too so participants were able to enjoy their picnic treats outside!
This scrummy bread is a bit like pepperoni pizza and is perfect with a G&T or a long cold ‘mocktail’ and ready for sharing outdoors with friends and family.
A bit of Scandinavian baking was the perfect project for a snowy day. The saffron buns are made with a yeasted, laminated dough which was a lot of fun to make and well worth the effort! A delicious treat after a snowy walk.
