These heavenly real chocolate brownies by Choclette over at Chocolate Log Blog uses local happy duck eggs and half wholemeal spelt flour for added depth of flavour. Don’t you just want to take a great big gooey bite!
Choclette has also shared her deliciously golden Cornish Saffron Buns. Did you know saffron has long been associated with Cornwall? Choclette says, “It is said that the Cornish traded with the Phoenicians way back, exchanging tin for saffron and it’s been used here ever since.” These saffron buns are a traditional Cornish bake, and I certainly wouldn’t say no to tucking into a few!
In the first of two entries this month, Alexandra, The Lass in the Apron (from Pennsylvania, USA, who is currently writing a cookery book!) shares an absolutely perfect Ukranian Pagach. Alexandra says, “Pagach is simply two rounds of bread dough sandwiched around a filling and then baked.” She made this incredibly tasty looking dish with a potato, cabbage and local cheddar cheese filling. Oh yes please! This looks perfect for a picnic!
