This cake is gluten free and it's absolutely delicious! It's an apple / cider / fruit cake (can't remember its real title!) from Phil Vickery's "Seriously good! Gluten Free Baking" book.
Did I say how yummy it is?!
In addition to baking I've also been trying to finish up the many abandoned projects on my cutting table. I whipped up a small bag for a present yesterday and I finished another present this morning - a combination of knitting, crochet and sewing (the perfect project?) which has taken me since mid-March. I followed a pattern for some of it but made many changes and, as I have to be in the right mood for improvising, it took far longer than it should have done. Details and photos to follow when both presents have been gifted. I've also been working on the knitted cardi and started my blocks for the afghan CAL.
It's all happening here - amazing what you can achieve when it's raining cats and dogs!
I had a lovely surprise in the post this week - a parcel from my sister in Australia with a fantastic hand-made present for me from my ten-year-old niece:
This book has a coptic binding and is covered with Japanese paper.
Really beautiful work!
This was a sourdough mix from Finax ... tasty with great texture.
Oat bread mix from Provena - not sold on the taste / texture of this one; it's a bit cake-y for it to work well as bread.
This white loaf is Schär bread mix B - also good texture / taste.
Time for another slice of cake and a cuppa now!
