Baking her way around Britain

While I was blog-hopping one of these days, I came across a very interesting blog – Baking for Britain. The author of the blog, Anna, is baking her “way round the United Kingdom, trying out regional specialities, traditional ingredients etc., and generally making (and sampling) nice things to eat in the cake, biscuit and bun line.” Her blog contains both recipes and informative stories about them, and is a really interesting read. So, if you’d like to find out more about traditional British cakes, biscuits and buns,  do visit Anna’s blog!

  1. a good find 🙂

    i always associate british baking with “suet and steamed pudding” but i know i know it’s more than that. i have a nice book on british baking but haven’t explored it much. we have a strong british background to our [canadian] food, like australia, however where i come from, it’s more french influenced. btw, i have an interesting site link in my blog about british regional cooking.

    cheers! I’ll check it out.

    I also left a message for Anna, of the Baking for Britain fame, to try the link. I thought she’d be interested.

Recipe by @carla_tomasi, via @rachelaliceroddy #twokitchensfamilyrecipesfromromeandsicily. 
A couple of changes to the method: I used a machine to knead the dough and sprinkled thw top of the #focaccia with some #Maldon sea salt. Delicious and soft!

Plus smoked pork sausage made by my mum and dad in Dalmatia.

I know this concept of leftover marmalade is alien to some, but we did have some left after I switched my allegiance to (seasonal) berry jams in June.
This cake is inspired by the amazing warm marmalade sponge I had at the @wreckfish_bistro in Liverpool, and based on the recipe by @nigellalawson. I wanted stronger flavours like in the Wreckfish sponge, so I added a touch of salt, 1 or 2 tbsp more marmalade than Nigella, and some more sugar. I also replaced some of the flour with ground almonds, and the glaze has a touch of lemon juice and a bit of sugar (because I ran out of marmalade and didn't have enough). I'll report back later on the results!
