Ancient grind

Once upon a time, all our bread came from underneath these heavy heavy stones. Today, we have the luxury to admire their beauty.

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!
