Well, write it down boy ......
Recently made a cake from a Paul Hollywood book, based on a Polish recipe apparently.
It's a spinach cake topped with pistachio and pomegranate seeds, which sounds disgusting but is delicious.
Firstly the base with the top cut off (you use the top to blitz with the pistachio and then put on the pomegranate)

Then the finished cake

I made as my wife had the local WI committee meeting at our house and was a bit nervous as WIs have the reputation of being top bakers. However they raved about it and seemed to like it as they only left this bit (they also had a lemon polenta cake to scoff).

Apparently at the end of the meeting they were deciding where to hold the next and my wife piped up "we could have it here again"!!!
No!!!!!!

Bit of a different fruit scone here, made using Bowmore 17 yr old single malt...

If ever you needed smellivision, this is where it would come into its own.
Lightly smokey, vanilla and toffee scented, they are phenomenal.
Soft and fluffy inside, perfect when still warm, with plenty butter.
