Well, I am not sure what has happened. After many years of happy cooking and baking the last two months has found me making disaster after disaster.
This week, I thought my baking mojo had returned. I had a sudden urge to make ginger biscuits. So, there I was melting and mixing and placing lovely balls of dough onto the baking tray. I popped said ginger biscuits into the oven. Three minutes later I realised that I had forgotten to add the ginger. So these ginger biscuits were downgraded to biscuits. They tasted nice, but still…
Today, I have a sore throat and so made myself a hot, steaming honey and lemon drink with added root ginger. It was delicious and it got me thinking about making a lemon and ginger cake. I set to it straight away. Hooray, I have it back.
Readers, the cake burned.
I will be back, I will, I will. I’m just not sure when.
