Maple syrup and hazelnut shortbread biscuits from Nigel Slater’s The Kitchen Diaries Volume III – these are the best biscuits I have made for a very long time and their scent is wonderful whenever the jar is opened. Made so many but doubt they will last until next weekend!
Just glazed THIS when it came out of the oven – Izy Hossack’s healthy chocolate fudge cake, which I made with homemade pumpkin puree and some ground almonds instead of the ground flaxseed. Post-tasting, this is my new favourite chocolate cake. It’s so good! I have been baking mostly gluten free recently due to a relative’s requirements, and for several months now have been investigating healthy baking (free from refined sugar and using alternatives to solid fat, and trying to include things like fibre and vitamins…). More posts soon!
