Cakes, Salad and More Cake

I had a busy baking day yesterday, making Coffee cake for today’s cake stall at Redruth Butter market (and a tiny one for us) and a cake for today. Friends whom we haven’t seen for years came for lunch in the garden today and we have talked for hours and hours and hours! I made ┬áSalad Nicoise served with some locally made sourdough followed by a truly delicious Lemon Polenta Cake with raspberries.

My Mum, Gardening and Baking

It’s 28 years since my Mum died on this day and I still want to tell her stuff that excites me or that I need her wisdom on. It doesn’t go away.
Today I want to celebrate her life by recognising some of the gifts that came from her – my love of gardening and of cooking.
She would have been delighted with us having an allotment so here are a couple of the flowers from there today.

After she retired, she used to fill in forms that asked for her profession not as ‘Retired Teacher of the Deaf’ but as Head Gardener.
She was a brilliant cook too so here is a coffee cake I have made today for the cake stall at the Redruth Butter Market stall tomorrow.
