Have made 13 scotch pancakes. I'm about to post 12 of them to my poorly friend in Scotland (keep your fingers crossed that they survive the journey :) ) and the remaining one is for Mr S when he gets home from a day out later.

Hope they arrived ok Seatallen :tu:

I've had numerous requests from OH for another cardamom cake ... it's a long time since I made one and we do love it so ... I tried a new recipe this time and it's a very good one indeed ... it's the one from The Hairy Bikers' Big Book of Baking ... can't find the recipe online other than in this blog and I've not checked it for verisimilitude http://ukzoe.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/car ... -cake.html

It's so good we've both just had to eat two pieces each ... purely as quality control you understand :oops: :chops:

It's a very good recipe ... made by the melted butter method and has a very soft texture ... very delicious indeed :chops:

They did! Friend texted me to confirm. Amazingly, they arrived the next day. I posted them on Thurs afternoon and they were delivered on the Friday. Usually it takes a good couple of days for parcels/cards to be delivered in view of the remoteness.

Cardamon cakes look lovely... :chops:

I have lots of cardamoms, green and black ones, so will have to give this a go as otherwise they (the cardamoms) could sit in my cupboard for years ;)

Give yourself plenty of time to shell the cardamoms Patsy ;)

I love seed cake of any description. It seems to be coming back into fashion doesn't it? :chops:

Finally got around to making a spelt sourdough - tweaking an Andrew Whitley recipe. There's no way I can keep to all his temperature guides, so didn't bother. Easy to make the starter, took about four days from start to using. It was tasty, a bit nutty and malty in flavour. He adds a raisin mush, which I think helps. 50g or raisins, 50g of boiling water, leave for an hour and whizz up.

Looks really professional - I like the sound of the raisin mush, it must add a lovely flavour.

Thank you, I think next time I bake my normal wholemeal loaf I'll add the raisin mush, just to see what it tastes like.

Made a boiled fruit cake in my Panasonic bread maker. It tastes pretty nice, moist and sweet. It is for a birdwatching trip to Titchwell Marsh, lets see what my fellow travellers think :). We will need it, bad weather is predicted. But it is a pre-booked trip, so we will go anyway!

Have a good trip to Norfolk Mamta! If the wind is in the north you'll get the worst of it there so wrap up warm. The waders are definitely arriving so there'll be lots to see. I saw huge flocks of lapwing and other waders on Breydon Water and the surrounding marshes at the weekend.

How did you manage to do that, Malta. Sounds like a good idea!

Mince pies, Mexican quiche, cranberry and orange loaf/cake and a couple of baked potatoes for another time. I had Mr. Z as a helper, it really speeded things up. He is getting very good at filling mince pies and putting the tops on. :tu: :tu:
