A place in the sun...

This was where I sat this sunny morning...drinking coffee and planning my Saturday baking. Sheer bliss! You can see my newest book...The Nordic Bakery Cookbook which is from one of my favourite places to drink coffee in London. Their famous cinnamon bun recipe has already featured on this blog, and I'm trying out two more recipes this weekend, which I'll let you know all about soon.

Earlier today, I delivered a batch of these...
Plum, Almond and Cinnamon Muffins to The Coffee Tree. The recipe was the very first I posted on this blog, so I won't repeat it here. But it's from the first Ottolenghi cookbook and is absolutely delicious. Full of good things including orange zest...perfect for celebrating the beginning of the weekend!
Happy Friday to you...enjoy the day...whatever you do!



  1. These are just wonderful to look at but I can only imagine their taste---oh how I would love to peruse cookbooks with you over coffee or tea---!!!

    Could you share the name of the cookbook...I was looking at ordering Plenty---which one of his books do you think I'd love best?

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend....with Paul, the pups....and hopefully, a bit more sunshine!! How reviving it always is!!

  2. I have made those muffins, after the one where you gave us the recipe, just divine. Would love to share a coffee with you again. xxxxxxxxxxx

  3. Most of my perusals seem to have been tucked up in a warm bed recently. However the sun is out. the furniture is back in the garden and Agnes is on the mend... baking books here I come... Hope you have a lovely weekend xx
