Lockdown Blog 49: Bake Off

Hello again everyone,

We’re still in lockdown here in the UK, but the rules are easing very slowly, which is great! Tomorrow I can make what the government is calling a ‘double bubble’ with my boyfriends household, which means I can actually give him a hug for the first time in about three months :-) Yippee!

In my house, we have been doing a little family bake off to keep ourselves entertained. It has been really fun, and made for a great treat on a baking day.

The result is yet to be announced as my Dad has only just done his bake (late as usual!): I can smell the chocolate chip cookies as I type!

The entries have been as follows:

1) Bertie: Bakewell Slices
2) Stuart: Orio Cheesecake
3) Diane: Butterfly Cakes
4) Mum: Viennese Biscuits
5) Me: Vitoria Sponge
6) Dad: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I must say, I am very grateful to my family as every single bake has been made gluten-free; I am a coeliac you see! I know that some of them were nervous (and reluctant) to risk the success of their bake on the contrary-nature of gluten-free flour! But they have all been yummy.

Let me know on my instagram which is your favourite from the list above :-)

I’m going to go and steal a corner of cookie now so…

Until the next time, and keep safe,
