Fluffy Buns

Not this sort of fluffy buns
but this sort of fluffy buns
They don't look that spectacular in the photo, even though I've given them a bit of a patriotic Olympian feel, but they taste great and are really, really fluffy.  Here's the recipe if you're interested.

How has your garden grown this summer?  Our produce has been very poor - no redcurrants or blackcurrants at all and the birds ate the few whitecurrants that forced themselves to appear.  The raspberries and rhubarb were okay but nothing special.  Our neighbour's cherry tree pulled out all the stops and he generously said we could have as many as we liked.  Oh, and so far we have produced one oversized courgette and a few green beans.

I impressed myself with this make - a 20p car boot sale heart-shaped baking tin proved a failure for baking as everything stuck to it, so I painted the base with my Dulux match pots, hung it on the kitchen wall and added magnetic pegs.  It's now a very useful little noteboard!
 In my last post I mentioned my Alan Dart gnome - here now is his ladyfriend.  She should actually have her hands stitched together but when I took a photo I realised that the little round pink hands across her chest looked like big gnomey boobies!  (Oo-er, Mrs!)  I unpicked the stitches and added a Christmas pudding which looks much better and less suggestive...
Well, back to the Olympics and our fabulous Team GB!

  1. Ooh, how lovely to have your pick of the cherry tree, they look gorgeous!

    I love what you've done with the baking tin, very clever.

    I had to laugh at your lady gnome because I can just imagine what she looked like pre-pudding!
