Show us your bakes!
« on: January 17, 2016, 08:55 »
Just like in Extra Slice - the Great British Bake Off review show with Jo Brand, post pictures of your triumphs and tribulations in your baking.

These St Lucia buns are not perfect, but they taste good and I am counting them as a triumph because they are made with my own home grown saffron.



What they should look like and the recipe here :

I'll get the kettle on shall I?  :D

Been doing a lot of baking lately to try to use up te egg mountain. And walnuts. So today I went back to my childhood and made coffee and walnut sponge and coconut macaroons (yolks went into carbonara sauce)

Neighbours coming over for coffee in the morning so it's St Clements drizzle cake with St Clements curd to go in, and because they love mince pies and I made too much mincemeat, a mincemeat slice. As the oven was on, bread made a day early (wild, I am!)  :lol:

They've gone home all sugared up for the day, just how they like it. And with a bag full of goodies!

The curd is yum...well. I had to try it to see if it was OK for the cake.  :lol:

My children's friends were always treated to bread making when spending the day, home made pizzas for lunch then a hedgehog or snail to take home plus remains of their pizza, they loved it used to have children almost begging to come
