Weekend in Food...


* Carrot, Apple and Orange juice...

* Coconut Muffins (four ingredients, I kid you not - 1cup each of self-raising flour, desiccated coconut, sugar and milk (we used lactofree) - mix, spoon in to papers and bake at 180C for 20 mins)... like little cakier macaroons, soft as clouds and oddly lovely with a little butter (or for us, pure spread!) and tea...

* Cucumber, Celery and Apple Juice. Toast, cucumber, cheese, yoghurt... tea...

* Assam tea...

* We ate too fast to photograph it first... what's left of Miso Grilled Tofu with Sesame, Gyoza parcels and Edamame...


Bon weekend to you!

oh how lovely!

all this food looks so good and welcoming after the rich excesses of december (mince pies for breakfast anyone?!)

i am definitely going to try your cake recipe. looking for birthday buns for elsa and your recipe could be a winner (no egg and i could use oat milk?) thanks for the inspiration.

and i just love all the photos. beautiful ceramics (and tea towel!) enjoy the rest of your weekend xXx

Hi Kelly- thanks for the lovely comment ;)

The cake recipe is fantastic- really scrummy, but quite sweet (the saltiness of the butter really works as it kind of cuts through the sweetness, if you eat them like scones more than buns).

I think next time i'm going to reduce the sugar slightly, but i'm not sure what that will do to the texture- if anything!

Anyway, with regards oatmilk, I can't see any reason why not. The biggy is to use self-raising flour, and proper cheapy desiccated coconut (none of this fancy shredded stuff!). Have a wee experiment and let us know!

Hi - I just found your blog and have been reading from the most recent post backwards. I just tried your Coconut Muffin recipe, reducing the sugar to roughly 2/3 cup, and they were so yummy! Thanks for sharing.
