Preparing, making, out and about
Firstly I would like to apologise for my distinct lack of posts throughout December. My life seemed to catch up with me a bit, and I’m not sure where all the time was going but I didn’t have hardly any to spare. I just about managed to squeeze in a gingerbread house for my first Daring Bakers challenge and I am so looking forward to seeing what is asked of me next month!
Rather than a recipe, this time I would like to share with you some images from the last few weeks of Christmas preparation and cookery.
By the way, my wonderful and talented sous chef/photographer Dan can take credit for this post! (Say hello Dan…)
This last photo is of Rose Levy Berenbaum’s Chocolate Banana Stud Cake from her AMAZING book Rose’s Heavenly Cakes. Please please get this book, if you like baking then its like a bible! The recipes are so precise and as a Scientist I find this to be so helpful. If I get permission to reprint this recipe I promise I will, it’s the first one I have tried from this book and the tender chocolate sponge with a hint of banana was the best cake I have ever made.
