This great boiled one pot chocolate coffee cake is moist and delicious and so easy to make. It just takes one bowl
I look forward to posting this peek into my kitchen each month. The drawback is that it seems to make the month seem shorter, because it comes around so fast each time. So here are some of the things in my kitchen
I have this delicious boiled one pot chocolate coffee cake, made from coffee that was sent to me. This cake recipe has made a number of appearances since I discovered I liked it, more here
“Puro” coffee has taken my fancy. Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world today, so I am glad there are some companies thinking about the animals displaced in the forests. Puro donate money from sales to projects in Ecuador, Columbia and Peru working alongside “The World Land Trust” boasting David Attenborough as a patron. This is organic, fairtrade, shade grown coffee. I will be back with more information, tasting notes and where you can buy any of the three blends in Australia.
Has anybody seen this before. A very odd name for a can of seaweed, don’t you think?. This is a traditional Welsh treat served apparently “all over the place” with eggs, on toast and I am sure in a multitude of other ways. It is decidedly fishy and quite unpleasant, in my opinion anyway……It was given to me by my friends who have just returned from a visit to Wales
This little beauty was given to me by my friends at Beclau. I love it because you can peel parmesan, make carrot and zucchini ribbon, peel pumpkin……..oh it’s a genius. Find it at beclau
