Yesterday there was a recipe by Felicity Cloake for Barmbrack (basically a fruit loaf) in our weekend paper. The fruit had to soak in strong tea overnight so I set it going last night. We don’t like cherries so I substituted dried apricots and bits of crystallised ginger. I made the cake this morning and it is fabulous! I glazed it with ginger syrup from the ginger jar rather than making a sugar syrup. Success!
The promised snow eventually came in at 3pm, not enough to make a snowman/woman which I had hoped but enough to make the garden very pretty. Click on any of the photos to see the detail of the birds.
I found a tasty sounding recipe the other day, Roasted Cauliflower with Lentils and tried it this evening. Another scrumptious success.
Soulful Sunday – the snow makes for a very peaceful environment. I love the silence that comes with snowfall.
