BEEP! BEEP! Fifth stop on our #Christmas tour was Platt Primary School in #Sevenoaks. Perfect afternoon signing #books and meeting little ones, after hearing them sing a selection of classic Christmas carols. Kids were so excited about seeing beautiful #Husky#dogs in the #playground, who provided thrilling entertainment with rides on land sleighs. It was a pleasure to meet other stallholders too, many of them were #teachers, so valued the importance of #literary. Lastly, thank you to everyone who attended, especially the PTA who included Bradley the Bus in their programme.
New #recipe is on the blog - Poppy seed apricot cake!
Growing up, I have always been fond of old-fashioned desserts.
Minimalist in decoration, often modest in ingredients, but always more delicious than any
other dessert you could find in shops.
As most old-fashioned desserts, this one, too, requires only two bowls and a wire whisk.
Plenty of apricot and orange preserves keep this lovely cake sticky and delicious, and the
coarsely ground hazelnuts give it additional texture.
Poppy seed has a long tradition of enriching many pastries, and it gives this cake such a
unique, robust flavour.
Not overly sweet, and not complicated to make, it is one of the quickest desserts you can
include on your Christmas platter.
Granted, it is not a cookie, but sliced into tiny cubes, maybe even lightly dusted with
sparkling sugar, it should find its way to Christmas dessert trays.
It will keep for days at room temperature, and get even more delicious as days pass.
Serve it with a cup of freshly brewed coffee, and enjoy.
