finally, a chance to blog. not many exciting eats in the last week or so though, because we’ve had the most shocking weather and been fighting off an awful lurgy which has swept through the family (grandparents and visitors included). this evening i was so exhausted i resorted to what counts as fast food for us here – fresh spinach and ricotta ravioli (takes 2 mins to cook) and a jar (!) of pasta sauce. i haven’t had a jar of pasta sauce in years and now i remember why…..
this morning, however, my lovely friend michael and i had the chance to make a cake while lola was sleeping off her version of the dreaded lurgy. we were unoriginal and chose to make another of the yoghurt cakes which are my favourite of late – this time with blueberries and cherries.
this is before: i love how the berries sit on the surface. they disappear down into the batter as the cake cooks.
and this is after: not a berry in sight on the top!
we could barely wait until it cooled. i cut us big pieces which we scoffed whle still hot. then i wrapped up a big piece for michael to eat on the plane back to london. hope it survived the trip, michael!
