What's On My Kitchen Bench...

Violas and Wild Strawberries
Lots of fruit and veg...I went to Get Fresh and bought a $3.00 "surprise me" box.


I'm making Silver beet and Potato soup with Watercress.
The Limes were from a tree overhanging a back fence in the village.

Lovely little Tomatoes from the church garden.
(Which looks amazing with the Sea Grass Matting as a weed suppressant.)

Dessert For Breakfast...

It's also the name of one of my favourite blogs...


Still some Apple and Orange Crumble left from the week
just the thing for a Saturday breakfast.

Apple Crumble...

Stewed Apples with Orange and Cinnamon Crumble.
It's a tribute to a Marie Claire recipe.

You combine  two and a half cups of fresh Bread Crumbs with One teaspoon of Cinnamon,
 the zest of one Orange and  half a cup of Brown Sugar.
Spread it out on a lined baking sheet, and then drizzle over two ounces of melted Butter mixed with the juice of one Orange.
Toast in the oven at 180 degrees.
I checked mine every 10 min and kind of forked it about until it was crunchy.
it took about 30 min, but maybe my tray was a bit small.


Crumble the topping over your apples and serve with thick cream.

The Pecan Maple cake was so delicious, there's a crust then a soft centre.


Hummingbird cake, the Cream Cheese icing, Coconut and a hint of Nutmeg make it such a treat.
