These were the happiest accident, ever. They happened at the end of a long day baking on commission – I found myself with leftover odds and ends of just about anything and I was determined to find a way to use it all.
Coconut and I have always gotten on in a pretty casual sort of way. You know, like that person you know down the road who you see on the same bus sometimes; they’re alright and you vaguely mean to get to know ’em a little better but you just never quite get around to it. It’s not that I have anything against coconut; I just never get around to it.
This is cold weather food right here. Right now, it’s late, I’ve had two car rides and two train journeys to get home, the wind is battering the windows and rain is trying to drill a hole in the pavements outside – I have a feeling that nights like these are what make these gorgeous, gooey centre cakes even better.
If I could wish for anybody in the world to come to my house and make me food, it would probably be Dan Lepard. This is a very good, very easy recipe from one of his (in my opinion) best books. I’ve made it a couple times and never fail to be amazed at how little work really goes into it, despite the fact that there’s icing involved. The single modification I made to his recipe was to add raspberries to the mix.
Good Evening! I thought I’d introduce some savoury baking. It’s not something I do often – actually, that’s a mild understatement. This is the first savoury bake-thing I’ve made, ever. I was trawling healthy reciples at sparkpeople and I came across this particular concept. Its creator can be found here for thank-yous. 🙂
