It is fair to say that I do not bake very often. Why is this? There are various reasons. First of all, I try not to have too many fattening temptations in the house, and anything home baked is so demolishable isn't it?
Secondly, that old chestnut, time. Especially when we have a lot of work on, it isn't a priority.
Thirdly, I don't have all the kit and if I did I just don't know where to store it. I am sure if I was a fanatic, I would have the kit and I would find the time.... but..
And really, I am just not in the habit of it.
But tonight we are going out for dinner at our friends' house. I have been asked to do a pudding. Instead of diving for M and S, I decided to make a lemon drizzle cake. I am going to serve it with a lovely fresh fruit salad, meringues and cream. I can have a tiny bit of cake, and lots of fruit salad. One of the girls going is making tequila ice cream... should go well with cake I hope.
Hope it turns out well. Tomorrow I am making a spiced apple pie ( an American recipe from a Williams and Sonoma recipe book I got from Orlando) for the boys. I am in the mood to bake.......it doesn't happen often but the boys love it when I am.
