Baking News!

* I thought it time to post another baking news segment as I haven’t done one for a while now. It’s Easter weekend which mean’s a nice long bank holiday here in the UK. We have my parents here with us for two days which has been done. We’ve done some sightseeing and If you follow me on Instagram you’ll of seen that I had a delicious Soya chai latte. This one was the best I’ve ever tasted, it wasn’t a powder mix that contained added sugar and milk powder that most coffee shops use, this one was simply a blend of spices soaked in the milk with added espresso. It had a lovely added heat and it came with a side dish of honey if you wanted to add a little sweetness to it. Delicious!

* Our plum tree has started producing lots of baby plums. It’s got hundreds on it which means we are going to have more a bumper crop come August. I’m calling on you for help. I’m going to start collecting recipes now so when they start to ripen I can get going which putting them to good use. So what I’m asking you for is to share all your yummy plum recipes, whether it be for cakes, muffins, jams, ice cream, chutneys ect.
