On Jeannette’s visit, this is what we baked:
Blueberry Muffins (Bread Bible)
Banana Cake with sour cream ganache (Cake Bible)
Perfect Peach Galette with Creme Anglaise
Sourdough Pitas made with the left-over pizza dough (we made these into sandwiches)
I had already made Struan Bread and a multi-seed bread (both sourdough)
Of course we couldn’t eat it all so we gave the banana cake to Jeannette’s sister-in-law. We took a day trip to vist the local Scotch whisky distillery (Talisker on the Isle of Skye, for those interested) and we ate our sandwiches and a muffin sitting in front of the distillery by the waters edge with the whisky fumes wafting in the breeze. J’s husband made flasks of Illy coffee just to make sure we were happy - he had had 3 sample tots of whisky so he was happy anyway! We then went on to visit Dunvegan Castle (seat of the Clan MacLeod) before having dinner at the local Bistro (I know, I know, but it’s actually pretty good!). As they say in Scotland, “Haste ye back”, Jeannette & hubby!
