Well Monday evening is upon us. I hope you have had all had a lovely bank holiday weekend if you are in the U.K.
This weekend has been all about food for me! I have made cheese scones, using a Paul Hollywood recipe in his book of bread book. It used eggs and strong flour, which I haven’t used in scones before. They’ve gone quite dark, but I’m putting that down to the egg glaze. It was also very sticky to work with.
I also made a Coca Cola cake, which is my go to recipie when it comes to cakes. This one fell apart on me but it tastes good so I don’t mind! I got the recipe years ago from a website called cooking for girls as I was looking for easy young people friendly recipes for work and came across this when googling Coca Cola cake. I love it and it makes a nice rich chocolate cake.
And I also made some plum jam, using a bbc good food recipe. I made some gooseberry jam last week but I over cooked it and it set really hard. I have a jam thermometer now as well (thanks mum) so I think that helped.
It’s been a really nice weekend full of food, family and good TV.
