Now I have to admit to using popcorn rather a bit recently in my cake recipes. it is simply for two reasons :
1. I have been sent lots by various companies this last month
2. It just works!
Since the boys returned to school after half term, I have kind of lost my cake baking mojo. I think it is because I had a big gain at my slimming world that same week, and I did not want to make anything which I would be tempted to eat!! The good news is I was good and I lost half that weight again the following week! Then a cake idea popped into my head and my cake baking mojo was back- huzzah!
I was lucky enough to visit River Cottage HQ this week (thanks to the Foodies 100), and it was a wonderful day. A chance to step back, relax, meet other bloggers, enjoy the stunning surroundings, bake and try some delicious food. The day did not disappoint and having watched River Cottage on the TV for several years now, it was really interesting to see where it is filmed and the discover the story behind it.
