A bereft baker...

No blogging this week as my trusted Mac died a sad death on Sunday, and I'm mourning the end of a fabulous machine. Otherwise, the wonderful, stimulating anthropology of food course at SOAS has detained me in the library so the kitchen's been rather quiet - and I'm going cross-eyed from the days of reading...who said being a student was easy?!

But watch this space for the following autumnal/winter recipes:
  • hazelnut, chocolate and pear cakeText Colour
  • plum crumble
  • beetroot chocolate cake (yes, am still on a chocolate high after last week's chocolate tastings!)
  • butternut squash bread
  • whisky, walnut and orange cake
In the meantime, check out Sarah Vine of the Times call to arms (or whisks)

Very a propos for our gloomy economic times - a bit of levity never goes amiss!

Butternut squash bread sounds great! Can we have that first?

Absolutely Fiona! Will bake it this weekend and let you know how it turns out...am hoping for a bright, bold orange loaf - just in time for Halloween!
