But I seem to have developed a desire for baking, especially since it’s got a lot colder outside.
It got me thinking about how baking is now something us girls have rather glamorized. No longer is it seen as a ‘Grandma’ activity. No not at all, it is so much more a desired lifestyle, to be able to bake wonderful delights in the comfort of your own home.
Like many home projects it’s the satisfaction you get from being able to say "I made that".
I am not the neatest of people, and I found that with my attempt at Butterfly buns on Friday. It was a messy affair to say the least, one that resulted in me getting icing sugar all over my top! But these buns were scrummy; the taste was melt in the mouth. I did go to town with the butter cream and jam, maybe too much for some people’s liking, but that’s because I’m naturally greedy!
Me and the Mr then made a leek and blue vinny tart from the River Cottage everyday cookbook on Saturday, we did cheat a little bit and buy the pastry. But we did make up for this by using some of our own home-grown leeks from the garden.
This could just be the start of a new love affair for me, do you share a similar love for home-baking?
