Rye Bread

Easy Rye Bread, it’s a little bit Finnish!

This easy Rye Bread is a freeform loaf that’s rustic and nourishing – perfect with an autumnal soup or toasted and served with blackberry jam and plenty of butter. It’s a tweaked Nigella recipe from How to be a Domestic Goddess. I’ve baked many a recipe...

Gooseberry Meringue Roulade

Gooseberries in a colander, now that’s summer. A yearly ritual of childhood when we were sent down the garden to the veg patch to pick the goosegogs. We’d wander back up the path with colanders heavy with fruity jewels and our forearms scratched and scraped from the...

Individual Rhubarb Pavlovas

Clouds of meringue topped with velvety fresh cream and roasted rhubarb freshly harvested from the garden, these individual rhubarb pavlovas are luscious and summery. We timed our return to the UK perfectly, the weather has been wonderful these last couple of weeks, of which much...

Coconut Crusted Meringues

An endless supply of free-range eggs and an Aga oven meant that meringues were definitely a pudding last week. I had been inspired to make big meringues after seeing some on a food stall while walking along Brick Lane in London. We rushed up the...

Blueberry Crumble Slices

Who loves the crumble on a crumble more than the fruit underneath? Well these are the slices for you! Buttery crumb with a juicy layer of blueberry, dished up warm with a dollop of crème fraîche, delish! Very easy to make too, and any slices you have...

Unashamedly Kitsch Polka Dot Swiss Roll

A swiss roll to match my dotty pinny! This bake was born out of the need to use up the two cartons of fresh strawberries I had bought a couple of days before for 49p each. For cheap, reduced strawberries, these were surprisingly good when I...

Rhubarb and Custardy Cupcakes

Rhubarb is a fabulous fruity vegetable which we have for pud in many traditional ways, rhubarb crumble, rhubarb fool, rhubarb and custard. We are house sitting in a rural spot on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales for a week, looking after two gorgeous old dogs....

"Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall" flatbread

Adventures in Aga land

At the beginning of January we spent a week housesitting in rural Lancashire. It was a beautiful house in a very quiet location and there were two dogs to walk. It rained almost the whole week so I spent much of it stood over the...
