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.

An afternoon at Hinton Admiral. Such glorious weather, such fabulous gardens and grounds. So many Wisterias and different colours too.

Haven’t made beet kvass in far too long. It’s so good for you, even beetroot hating CT will drink a glass. Looking forward to trying it in another day or two. . . . #beetkvass #fermentedfoods #fermentation #healthydrink #beetroot #organicbeetjuice #fbc18uk #fbcuk16 #cookblogshare #fb #vvfb18 #foodiesfotos #scrumptiouskitchen #scrumptiouslife
Wisteria is such a magnificent plant when in flower. Excited to find we have one in the garden. It’s probably been some time since it had much in the way of light. . . . #wisteria #springflowers #gardening #scrumptiouslife #fbc18uk #fbcuk16 #fb #floweroftheday @farmersgirlcook @fabfood4all @lavenderandlovage @christinacucina @bakingqueen74 @madaboutmacarons @fairydust_dragon @freycob. #monthofmay
