E is for..



I love elderflower and as E 's are a bit thin on the ground in terms of great baking entries, I give you elderflower. The slightly alcohlic version St Germain is wonderful- in champagne, gin, lemonade- oh heck in anything!

One of my very early posts was of an elderflower genoise and the link is here Elderflower genoise | vannillarock. Revisiting early posts is a shocker- the photography, the layout, ouch, the everything- it is however a very nice cake, and there is no getting away from now nice elderflower is.

Have a wonderful day.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. I love Elderflower syrup, especially in the summer with sparkling water. Have you ever tried elderflower pancakes? You would need fresh flowers for that one though.


i'd love to hear from you...
