I fell right off the #bookstagram bandwagon during 2020. I did read quite a bit as you can see, but it wasn't the same not being able to go to the Library or see the ladies from reading group๐Ÿ“š
.
I've got through a number of my 'to-be-read' books however I miss the variety of reading group and never knowing what we're going to next month. We still have a monthly WhatsApp chat about what we've all been reading and any life updates but I miss seeing people in the flesh ๐Ÿ’—
.
A few of the stand out books of last year were:
๐Ÿ“˜Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig
๐Ÿ“—I'll Keep You Safe by Peter May
๐Ÿ“™The Girl Under the Olive Tree by Leah Fleming 
๐Ÿ“•The Endless Beach by Jenny Colgan

Hello lovely people, I'm back with some baking ๐Ÿ˜Š I was given @nadiyajhussain Nadiya Bakes book for Christmas and I made my first sweet thing out of it today for pudding (I have already made the seekh kebab toad in the hole - would highly recommend)
.
We have some vegetable suet left over from when I made mincemeat last year so I put it to good use in a jam roly poly - it's such a classic and I've never made one before! ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿซ“๐Ÿฝ I'll definitely try it again, the most difficult bit was folding the foil and baking paper; I still need to perfect that part ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I made biscotti for the first time this Christmas - cards on the table though, this isn't the first batch. I made some with dried cherries in and I think the mixture was a bit too soggy because it was pretty difficult to slice๐Ÿ’๐Ÿช
.
These are dark chocolate and hazelnut and are rather delicious ๐ŸŒฐ๐Ÿซ Second attempt was much better ๐Ÿช

I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope that 2021 is less 2020 for everyone ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿ“†

I honestly don't know what to say about the #covidchristmas situation, so instead here are the Christmas cards I cross-stitched for my parents and grandparents this year - the bottom two are @hobbycrafthq kits and the top one is a @bothythreads kit I bought from John Lewis in the sale back when we were allowed to go out at the beginning of the year ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ“ฎ
.
I love how the holly and the ivy one turned out as it used a variety of stitches and different numbers of thread, however it did use metallic thread. Who even invented metallic thread? It's such a pain to sew with ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ

I bought some beautiful Christmas fabric from @hobbycrafthq last year that I didn't get chance to use, so I looked on @pinterestuk for some inspiration for fabric decorations and ended up with these ๐ŸŽ„
.
I made them a few weekends ago and they were simpler that I thought from looking at the pictures. It's just two circles of fabric seen together and then folded, sort of origami style. I think it's quite effective though ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŽŠ

Just one week left at work now and then I'm looking forward to a well needed break for Christmas - I hope you are all coping ok with this weird covid Christmas โ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผโ˜ƒ๏ธ

For chocolate week I had another go at bourbon brownies. Last time I made them there were only two of us in the office at work so to mark my one year anniversary I wanted to share them with the whole team๐Ÿช๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ’ž

I was very covid-friendly with individual pots for each person. It's a strange time to be a baker; your instinct is to share but you've got to figure out how to avoid touching the same things and share in a socially distanced manner ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜–

I forgot to post again yesterday; it's so full on at work now students are back I'm a bit mentally drained๐Ÿคช
.
Over the weekend I had a go at making soda bread. It's got a strange texture, more like a giant scone than a loaf of bread so it was pretty crumbly. I'm not sure it was quite my cup of tea, my Dad absolutely loved it though๐ŸžI like the rustic look of it, very #countrykitchen

Happy Wednesday folks ๐Ÿช Almost the weekend again๐Ÿ˜ด . I completely forgot to post my #bakeoffchallenge bake yesterday. I went for coconut macaroons AND Florentine biscuits. They are both so yummy we couldn't decide between them ๐Ÿฅฅ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿซ๐Ÿช . The Florentine biscuit recipe came from the very first @bbcgoodfood magazine that I bought in November 2016 - the biscuits are lightly spiced with cinnamon and the almond and cherry Florentine mixture is baked on top. The macaroons are from my Great British Bake Off at Home book, which funnily enough is based on the 2016 series - obviously a good year for baking ๐Ÿช๐Ÿฅฅ๐Ÿซ . . . #GBBO #bakeoff #extraslice #greatbritishbakeoffathome #bbcgoodfood #coconutmacaroons #coconut #macaroons #florentines #florentinebiscuits #biscuits #biscuitweek #signaturebake #technicalchallenge #clareskitchen #baker #homebaker #madewithlove #bakedbyclare #baking

So, Bake Off is back. How did we all like it? ๐Ÿค” I thought that 3D busts made out off cake was a bit much for week one (and obviously well out of my skill set), so I had a go a making pineapple upside down cake๐Ÿ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ‚
.
Believe it or not, I've never actually and pineapple upside down cake before. We ate it warm with ice cream, more like a pudding, a very syrupy pudding...and I do like a good sponge pudding ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ„

This was a recipe from my @nationaltrust Teatime Baking Book ๐Ÿ“–

It was my Mum's birthday last Saturday ๐ŸŽ‰ - I made her two cakes which we took to my Grandparents' house for afternoon tea. It's the first of our birthdays that we've done a bit of something for this year ๐Ÿฐโ˜•๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ
.
We have a blackberry and orange cake, and a Victoria Sponge loaf cake (both @bbcgoodfood recipes). The blackberries were from my Grandparent's garden - the seeds aren't everyone's cup of tea so I made the second cake decorated with sprinkles and pearls ๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŠ๐ŸŽ‚
.
The BlackBerry cake was so moist because of the orange syrup drizzled over it - would definitely recommend giving it a try ๐Ÿ’œ

My brother has been asking me to make ciabatta for ages...like years and years. I never made because I thought it would be really difficult after watching it on Bake Off ๐Ÿž
.
It does take a really long time; I started it Friday evening and it finished baking at about 2pm yesterday afternoon โŒšThe loaves tasted pretty good though despite looking a little rustic, worth all the effort that goes into them ๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅ– (I used the @bbcgoodfood recipe in case anyone was wondering)
.
I have to give a lot of credit to my @kitchenaid_uk stand mixer though, it makes kneading dough so much easier (#gifted thank you once again to the Good Food Team at @immediatemediaco for choosing me as a competition winner a few months ago, I don't know what I'd do without it now ๐Ÿ˜Š)

Biscuit anyone?? ๐Ÿช These were last weekend's creation which I took to work as a treat for us๐Ÿ™Š

They might be a bit of a faff to make but homemade bourbons and custard creams taste so much better than shop bought. Kind of wish I had a custard cream stamper to go with my bourbon one though, just so they could match ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿช

Happy Father's Day - this is not the cake I made for today, but some bourbon biscuit brownies from a few weeks ago. Why have a cake or a biscuit when you can have both of them combined, right? ๐Ÿช๐Ÿซ
.
The recipe was from a @coopuk magazine from ages ago, before lockdown I think. They were immense, so chocolatey. I don't usually make brownies with melted chocolate, I normally use the Mary Berry all-in-one recipe which has never failed me. I was a little concerned they'd be too rich, but no, just right ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ

I have a few weeks of bakes to catch up on with posting here - I made this last weekend for my Dad who has just retired. That makes four of us in the house under each other's feet, whilst I'm also trying to work from home every other day ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #lockdownlife

Saying that, it is nice to spend time as a family. We have got very into watching Line of Duty...me especially. We are so late to this party but I'm absolutely loving it๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ#lineofdutyfangirl
.
Back to the cake, it is based on the ginger and white chocolate ring cake from the May edition on @bbcgoodfood magazine. I used dark chocolate in the icing instead because ginger and dark chocolate is one of my Dad's favourite flavour combinations. It was also a good excuse to try something else in my birthday bundt tin ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฉ

We are so late to this party but I'm absolutely loving it๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ #lineofdutyfangirl . Back to the cake, it is based on the ginger and white chocolate ring cake from the May edition on @bbcgoodfood magazine. I used dark chocolate in the icing instead because ginger and dark chocolate is one of my Dad's favourite flavour combinations. It was also a good excuse to try something else in my birthday bundt tin ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฉ . . . #baker #homebaker #bakedbyclare #bakestagram #baking #gingercake #gingeranddarkchocolateringcake # #gingeranddarkchocolate #darkchocolate #cakestagram #ringcake #bundtcake #bbcgoodfoodrecipe #bbcgoodfood #subscriberclub #bbcgfsubscribersclub #retirementcake #family #weekendbaking #clareskitchen #madewithlove
