The Other Stuff…

Becky and I do bake other things beside Bake Off challenges, so here’s a quick post about the other stuff.

We made Cinnamon Buns with cream cheese frosting for my Book Club. The recipe comes from “Sweet Home” by Rebecca Miller Ffrench.

Cauliflower Cake from “Plenty More” by Yotam Ottolenghi.  It’s only considered a cake because there is some flour and baking powder added to the egg mixture.  I love cauliflower and this was a really creative way of cooking it.


This is my own personal goal at the moment; fluffy whole wheat buns. I combined two recipes for this bake.  It was the best so far, but I’m hoping for an even lighter bun.

We also baked a sweet potato quiche with stilton and membrillo (quince paste ) which is also from “Plenty More”. We used some leftover Mashed Potato Pastry instead of shortcrust pastry and it was delicious!  Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph it and we shovelled it down rather quickly.


The weather is still lousy and we may get more snow tomorrow!  Where is Spring?

We’re not baking anything this weekend as I’m now trying to lose the extra pounds I put on while eating all this lovely food. It’s a tough life.

Happy Baking!

Cheryl and Becky
