So it’s 11:23pm and I’m running out of time to put a post together for today. So I’ll dial up a few images from today’s shenanigans, starting with my attempt to recreate Sassy Earl Grey’s Browned Butter Earl Grey Tea Pound Cake with Sweet Yellow Peaches and Vanilla Drizzle. 300g of butter later I’m not sure how well I did on the first two words in the title of that cake, but it seems there’s a generous amount of forgiveness in SEG’s recipe, because it still came out tasting a treat (a more in depth post tomorrow, I was too stuffed with food and beer tonight to properly break my thoughts down, so some cake will be had tomorrow when I can properly meditate on its delights). I also did a repeat of Nigella’s Guinness chocolate cake, which is a bit of a favourite with the family.
Well, I say I, but as usual I couldn’t have got there without Mrs P’s assistance. She was always there to help me when I looked like I was getting flustered or getting off track, as I can do when I decide to try to bake two cakes one after the other.
The kitties also helped by providing entertainment, including a spat on the dining room table chairs followed by a bout of sulking.
