Cinnamon Spice Pancakes with Cinnamon Poached Plums

Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day or Mardi Gras falls on Tuesday 17th March this year.   Whatever you call it, it’s a great excuse to make pancakes.  I’m definitely a fan of the fat pancake (very much a Scottish tradition) rather than the thin crepe style pancakes.

These Cinnamon Spice Pancakes have a lovely sweet cinnamon flavour and make a perfect base for the poached plums, soaking up the lovely juices, a little topping of cream or thick yogurt counteracts the acidity of the fruit.

Slow Cooked Spiced Ham

It might seem like a bit of an extravagance to buy a ham in January, but you can get an awful lot of eating out of a large ham like this eating it sliced, warm and cold, then stretching the rest into several meals using rice, pasta, quiche, bakes, pies and pasties.

Adding some spices and citrus fruit to the cooking liquid just adds a little extra flavour to the ham.  It’s not overpowering and is more obvious in the cold ham than when it is served warm.

Wisdom for Home Preservers and Spiced Blackberry Jam

When autumn (fall) starts to creep in, it’s definitely time to start preserving the harvest from your garden or the hedgerows.  People have been preserving food since ancient times—evidence shows that Middle Eastern cultures were using the heat of the sun to dry their foods as early as 12,000 BC—for reasons of survival or culture or both. Fast forward to the present day, and preserving our food—perhaps home-grown, seasonal, local, organic, or free-range—is an essential and enjoyable part of a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

Wisdom for Home Preservers by Robin Ripley is a comprehensive guide to …

Cinnamon Apple Scone Cobbler

One of my favourite blogs to visit is Deb’s Dust Bunny, it’s a delightful place full of delicious recipes and interesting information all served with a dollop of good humour. Last week I spied Debs recipe for Cinnamon Apples Scones, it’s one she posted last October, how did I miss that! These are not the usual kind of scones I would make, they are more like American Scones much sweeter than our and iced on top. I was really drawn to them and had a go at making the scones, as you can …

Chelsea Buns and The World’s Best Cakes Review

I’ve never made Chelsea Buns before but was not daunted by the sweet dough after making the Kugelhopf which turned out so well.  I’d also been watching the contestants on the ‘Great British Bake Off’ making sweet doughs the other week and it reminded me that I should make something like this again.

The opportunity came in the form of The World’s Best Cakes by Roger Pizey, one of the finest pastry chef’s in Britain, according to Marco Pierre White.
