Just to contradict the title of my last post, summer’s back. Although you can definitely tell autumn’s on its way, with cold nights and shortening days, it’s been beautiful. I’ve not had the full advantage of the hot days – I work on the coast, where it’s always a few degrees colder and windier – but it’s been lovely to have some late summer sun.
It’s been a flat-out week though, which is why this post, which I meant to write on Wednesday, is only up today 🙂
First up, cake.
You know when you get one idea in your head and have to make it? It was Andy the photographer’s birthday and I knew it had to be a sticky toffee cake.
I used 3/4 quantities of this recipe (tin size issues!) with half dark brown sugar and it was amaaaaaazing.
The date puree is delicious and the cake itself (and the icing) is out of this world. No issues with leftovers on that one 🙂
And talking about cereal….. how would you like to win some?
I was contacted by Liz, representing Jordans, last week, to ask whether I’d like to try and give away some of the company’s new products. I can’t eat any of them, as they’re not gluten-free – but one of you can!
One lucky winner will get:
Super Berry Country Crisp
Super Fruity Granola
Super 3 Seeds Granola
A packet of Absolute Nut bars.
To enter, leave a comment below telling me your favourite joke. Or any joke, the worse the better… just to be awkward 🙂
You can also get an extra entry for posting a link to this post on Twitter, and/or linking to it from a blog post. Leave an extra comment below for each one. It’ll be open till next Saturday and I’ll pick a winner at random after that – good luck! (Sorry to everyone else but it’s only open to people in the UK)
As far as belated birthdays go, I suddenly realised at the end of July that I’d missed my blog’s second birthday by a week, so this giveaway is a belated reverse bithday present. Type thing.
It fits after all, with my cereal lateness…. geddit?!
Hope you’re enjoying the sun 🙂
