I think I am a little late to the lockdown game here, but I am really enjoying it now that I’ve finally joined in .. the game I am talking about is of course .. baking .. from american pancakes the other weekend to a blueberry and lemon cake … I am back on the weekend baking bandwagon .. I used to bake so much back in the days when the kids were small but somewhere along the way I lost my mojo for it .. it is sometimes so difficult to find the time especially during the week where I don’t finish work until 5ish & its home to have a quick coffee and then start dinner for the troops .. so without any pressure on myself I am going to try and bake something simple easy that will probably only last for 24 hours before its all gone … I suppose it’s a good thing that they like it … on a weekend, something we can all hopefully enjoy (if they haven’t eaten all before I get there!).
Like I said the other weekend I made American Pancakes with blueberry sauce .. these were demolished in less than a minute .. it has been years since I made pancakes .. and I have always been an american pancake style kinda gal .. I find them easier and there’s definitely less pressure to do “the flip” with them! It was so good to cook & eat them again .. I will definitely be making these again ..
This weekends baking involved blueberries once again, this time it was a Blueberry and Lemon Loaf, although I used a square tin, it was still delish . I’ll be honest here and say that although the cake was actually rather delicious and the baking of it was fun the bit I enjoyed most .. which may come as no surprise to those who know my complete joy in the art form of “faffing” (also tentively known as styling) was to do exactly that .. snap, faff and snap some more .. then and only then were they allowed to eat it .. you’d think they’d be used to having to wait to eat by now wouldn’t you !!!
So here’s to many more weekends of cooking and baking … so far its been a thumbs up from everyone.
