So far this is the chocolatey-ist thing I have ever made. I am calling it The Chocolate Obscenity. Its just that chocolatey.

Double chocolate fudge cake with dark chocolate butter icing, choc chips and dusted with....thats right, chocolate.

It didnt last long. Especially because Jayne arrived with a look of intent destruction so intense that I feared for my life if I stood between her and the cake.

Happy drools everyone :)

Apple cake revival

Its in the oven. Last time it was a total disaster - I am blaming the fact that I didnt have the right size tins and the whole thing just would not cook right.

I have a new tin.

If it goes wrong this time then its on my head ;)

I will keep you posted.

Malty Overload

Been having a wonderful time making malt cakes. Made a huge cupcake one for a friends birthday the other day and it was so good I decided to make a pure chocolate cake last night and dress it with malt icing.

Thats after a batch of little malt cupcakes were made and decorated too.

Goes best with very, very, VERY strong cawfeeeee!

Its been awhile...

But there you go. Time gets away from me, especially at the beginning of the year.

I am starting the cycle that begins with little seeds and ends up being lots of food today.

Been out into the garden on a wonderful, bright and warm afternoon and planted up the seeds for broccoli, celeriac, tomatoes, various lettuces, spring onions, leeks, sage and lemon coriander.

Its a start of what will go into our allotment. This year it looks like the allotment will be soley for me and my hubby rather than for us plus my Mam and her partner. So it will be a bunch more work, but it will be worth it. Lots of fresh, wonderful fruit and veggies that can be cooked and baked into some gorgeous things.

I love Spring.
