Hiya, it’s Laura K here! For our trip up to Nottingham, I decided to make peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies. I’ve made them a few times before, but these particular ones turned out the best of all. I’m pretty proud of myself, it must be said. The cookies are quite simple to make and only have about five ingredients. Once I’d made about 45 little cookies, I decided to make two larger (and more manly) sized cookies for Aaron & Tom. Their texture was so soft & crumbly…ahhh…om nom nom. I wish I’d eaten more of them. They were thoroughly enjoyable biscuits.
Its a bank holiday weekend in England and my pals and I are leaving Ol’ London Town and heading up north to Nottingham to attend the Dot-to-Dot Festival. We are lucky enough to be able to stay at Tom’s parents house and to say thanks we have spent today baking up a storm.
To start I made lime, coconut and blueberry slice. Its from the Relvet Chocolate and Heartache cookbook and makes the house smell absolutely amazing with the smell of the coconut base and lime zest. I ran out of blueberries, so I used some raspberries as well. I’ve made this before and the base didn’t cook properly so I tried something different when cooking the base. It definitely worked better, however it still wasn’t the easiest to get out of the tray.
The coconut and sugar base is cooked first
The cake topping with the raspberries and blueberries start baking
mmm so limey!!
I’ve also made my amazing scones. I’ve made them a bit bigger than usual but they still look and I’m sure taste just as amazing. The dough…
Next up what LauraK made and how our treats went down…
Happy Baking x
Firstly, Welcome to my first tumblr. post. Edit: Have migrated to Blogger - I like what I know. I’m a little over run with ideas that I want to bake and try, so I looking forward to posting them for you all to drool over or screw you face in horror.
I’ve recently got my hands on a copy of the Hummingbird Bakery cook book. I haven’t yet been there which is something I hope to rectify very soon for a lovely lady date or several.
I’ve decided to go straight in with the famous Red Velvet… This is the first time I’ve attempted these and we’ve have a few ciders tonight before I started, but hopefully they will be delish.
mmm.. would probably look more amazing if I hadn’t mixed it in my pink bowl…
first batch going okay; second batch on the way…
The taste test will be tomorrow in Regent Park with my pals… will report back.
Enjoy and Happy Baking x
