This is a first for me. I had noted all the wonderful St Clement’s Drizzle Cakes made by the members of Sweet & Simple Bakes last month and thought it would be fun to have a go myself. As this month’s bake included chocolate, I couldn’t really dip out!
I mostly stuck to the recipe as given – sort of! I used 1/2 wholemeal and 1/2 white spelt flour and all my ingredients are, of course, organic. Actually, I also used less chocolate – G&B Vanilla is so rich, I thought 100g would be enough.
The results were pretty good, they were crisp around the edges and a bit chewy in the middle and I like my biscuits like that. I wasn’t quite so happy with the high sugar content though and found them rather too sweet. So I was glad I didn’t use the full quantity of chocolate as stated. The flavour combination was good though, so I will be making these again – less sugar next time and maybe a bit more chocolate. Thanks go to Maria and Rosie of Sweet & Simple Bakes for this.

I had a #vegan turmeric latte today @olivecocafe, but my friend had this pretty 2 shot flat white.

We’ve grown very little in the plot this year due to the deer and other critters, but I’ve been harvesting quite a bit of beetroot. The leaves of the last batch went into a smoothie, the stems into a chilli and the roots into my sandwiches.
It’s #vegetable for #froothiebetterlife today and #grain (as in bread) for #foodiesfotos
