Return of the prodigal baker
Wow, I'm back after many months in the wilderness.
Here are my excuses - first of all I got a more demanding temp job, then my Mum arrived from South Africa for three months, then I moved to an open plan office, which meant no more sneaky posting at work.
I'm happy to say I've still been baking and have tried quite a few new goodies such as:
Gluten-free Victoria Sponge
Gluten-free choc-chip & nut cookies
Gluten-free sticky toffee pudding
My Mum made: Gluten-free Hummingbird Cake
Basically they're just normal recipes which I've made using gluten-free flour. They all turned our really well. I promise to write posts about all of the above very soon.
I've been loving The Great British Bake off - which has inspired me to seek out recipes and make all of the above. I found myself shouting at the telly going "you don't do that silly!!!!" I found David particularly frustrating, as he'd always try and do things differently, it would come out a mess and yet somehow he got through. At one point I was shouting at the telly that Paul Hollywood must have a crush on him. Anyway...... at least he got his just desserts last week.
I do wonder about the need for having Mel AND Sue - surely just the one would be enough. Has anyone else noticed how Mel scrunches up her face, like she's staring into glare every time she talks to the camera? A double act it doesn't need to be!
