May Baking

In cooking on June 20, 2013

Oops, I almost forgot to post an update for May’s baking. The aim is to reach 52 during 2013.

  1. Marmalade SconeMarmalade Scones
    These were based on the idea from here, though I put a lot more marmalade in as I made tons earlier in the year that is too thick to spread and needs using up in something.
  2. Lemon BarsLemon Bars
    I am never any good at traybakes – I always seem to end up with stuff that won’t cut up nicely. I followed the Hummingbird bakery cookbook to the letter here and happily these worked out.
  3. Spinach, Feta & Olive QuicheSpinach, Feta & Olive Quiche
    A bigger than usual quiche as we had family staying. Based on our favourite of the Co-op’s ready made quiches.
  4. Everyday Fruit CakeEveryday Fruit Cake
    I didn’t think this one was as nice as the Tea Loaf I made earlier in the year. That didn’t stop me eating it though obviously!
  5. Tropical Fruit Cake
    Tropical Fruit Cake
    From the current free mag they are giving out in the Co-op. Oh, also online. Mine is lemon instead of lime as my fruit bowl was heavy on lemons and light on limes. Really far too big for a family of three! Especially as with the fresh fruit it really needed eating up quickly.

That makes 27/52. I also made a few batches of biscuits but they were not exciting or original enough to get their photos taken.

Clever Girl

Clever Girl by Tessa Hadley

In books read on June 17, 2013

I really enjoyed this. Completely different to The London Train but also very good. Following Stella from her childhood in Bristol through to her 50s. There's definitely more to it in the way of social observation of Britain through the ages, but mostly I just enjoyed the surface story. It's certainly one you could re-read and find many more things in it.

This was a library book.

The Beacon by Susan Hill

I've read the book, but not yet written anything down about it. Check back later (maybe!).

This was a kindle eBook.
