The daffodils in a jug on my dining room table remind me that it is spring. Outside the window the weather is telling me a different story. The last two days have been cold and grey and I have sought refuge in the kitchen.
Yesterday I made treacle bread for the first time. It is an Irish recipe that uses soda as a raising agent and not yeast. Served warm and spread thickly with butter, it is delicious.
I think this bread will be featuring regularly in my week from now on.
Today I made some yogurt. I won't know until tomorrow if it has been a success or not as at the moment it is 'incubating' in a sealed container! I also made the sticky date cake in the photo above. I am just waiting for the cake to cool down so I can have a slice. I would quite happily share it with all of you, although I might need to make more than one if I did that!
