Coffee and carrot cake ❤️
It’s been a while… In the meantime I’ve been working, reading and baking a lot.
Raspberry-oatmeal squares, non-bake peach and orange cheesecake with nuts, rasperry and cream pie, pecan caramel pie…
Brownies for Bob’s birthday (he turned 36 and works with a bunch of math nerds)…
And some stuff I saw on Bake Off: Victoria Wood’s coconut and lime cake, and Mary Berry’s mokatines (I left out the third (!) type of icing because I just couldn’t be bothered). I also baked a lot of other stuff that I didn’t take pictures of. The Hummingbird Bakery’s banana bread, for instance, which I baked several times over the past months, is amazingly delicious but doesn’t look very interesting.
We sacrificed our broccoli experiment so that we’d have butterflies all over the terrace. They were adorable.
Also, I grew a small chestnut forest…
Plus we’re moving to our new house in a couple of weeks so we’re currently filling up the present house with boxes and boxes and boxes, and cuddling Orange Garage Cat way more than usual because we’re really going to miss him when we’re gone.
So… how was your summer?
We had some guests over last week, so I baked a cake. Hummingbird again, so in light of previous quantity issues I decided to only make half the recipe when I saw it called for eight eggs… Good idea, as it turned out.
Anyway. Delicious coffee cake with coffee-flavoured vanilla icing and chocolate shavings on top!
