The weather has been beautiful. New life is everywhere.
The garden is blooming.
and on the allotment, there are buds, blossom and green shoots.

I made a cake for the Easter weekend. You have to have cake at Easter!
Not a chocolate one this year, but a pistachio and rose polenta cake.
It's a fairly straightforward cake to make, packed with pistachios and ground almonds.
I cannot comment on the taste though until we have cut into it and that will have to wait till tomorrow!

We are having a lovely family weekend, with all my little 'chicks' at home here.
Hoping you have good plans too.

Wishing you all a very happy Easter-time.



  1. Spring is really springing, isn't it? Your cake looks lovely (there's a Simnel cake to cut into here) and I'm sure will taste delicious. Have a wonderful time with your family. Happy Easter.

    1. Thank you Liz. I hope you had a good time too.

  2. The cake looks lovely. How did it taste? I'm afraid I resorted to tried and tested Best Cocoa Brownies to fulfil our chocolate quotient for the weekend.

    1. Thank you Colleen. The cake is lovely. The rose water icing is very perfumed. It reminds me a bit of Turkish Delight which I love. Chocolate brownies are always a winner!
