Florentines and the Great British Bake Off

baking, GBBO, Uncategorized

In Britain we are already into week three of the great british bake off (GBBO), the nation sits down with a cuppa and twitter at 8 pm, in grip of baking frenzy. Favourites have been chosen while annoying traits of others have been identified. Those still at work beg for NO SPOILERS! from family and friends. The nation is gripped by Mary Berry's dismissive eyebrow frown- you haven't made your fondant from scratch?! – sacrebleu!

With a blogging backlog as long as my arm my good intention to bake and blog a bake from each week's show has bombed. Don't worry it's easier to read that last sentence than read it out loud!

I did make Florentines this week, but I used a different recipe and actually they were chewy ( I hope Mary is not reading) they did taste delicious though. For this reason I am not sharing the recipe, only the pic, which gives not a hint of imperfection.

Ready steady bake…..and thanks for visiting.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Well that is very tantalising of you – to show us the Florentines, say they were deliciously chewy and then not say how you made them. Hm. Well at least my waistline is thanking you. And I’m thanking you for following my blog 🙂


    • Haha my reason was I considered the recipe a failure. You are very welcome for the follow – it should have come from my photography blog @vannilla


  2. You’re Florentines look great, I’m not brave enough to try them as I would let Mary down terribly and I wouldn’t be able face her in week 3! Looking forward to bread week 🙂


    • Haha don’t know if you saw the buzz feed on twitter around the disapproving fondant frown! She’s much less scary in real life 🙂 that for dropping in and thanks for compliment – the slight chew didn’t stop them disappearing !


i'd love to hear from you...
