Sweet tooth




Got my bake on this weekend. I've been wanting to bake for months, just waiting for my energy to come back (which it has, I'm even back in the gym - hooray!) so I could get on with it. I made an apple & hazelnut loaf from an old recipe book and whilst I was loading the loaf with the apples I thought "Surely this is too many?!", but the recipe said that the key to a great loaf was tons of them. Wrong!!! It should have taken 35 minutes to bake in the oven but I had to keep adding more and more time as it was nowhere near cooked. Two hours later I gave up. In the end we had a few soggy but delicious slices and I now know to halve the amount of apples in future. I must learn to trust my inner baker...

  2. jag gjorde exakt samma misstag nu i veckan. först hade jag äpple o aprikos i (1 ä + 3 apr) och det blev lite degigt. testade igen igår med 1 och ett halvt äpple (stora äpplen). blev perfekt!

    testa igen :)

  9. I love the egg picture! I bake a lot too, it's so much less expensive + you get to eat much more cake than just a slice :)
