Guinea pig heaven 2

Apparently yes.

We sat in R & T's garden room with coffee served in cheerful tiny cups, their new acquisition from Tynemouth Market, and tucked in. The mohnstrudel was pronounced a success, and unlikely to survive the night. A rather dull and plain-looking sweet bread, it had depth of flavour and a wonderful texture to its slightly brioche-like crumb, contrasting deliciously with the buttery poppy seeds. We licked our fingers, we had a second slice. We were happy guinea pigs.

There is a little yeast left, and some of the ground poppy seeds, so another experiment might be taking place today. Come and have a cup of coffee later, and a bite of something warm from the oven, go on!

Looks splendid and I bet the scent wafting round the kitchen was equally splendid. That coffee set is divine, I love it.

I am so delighted with the way this worked out. She does not lie that woman! It was (is still (how restrained am I?)), really delicious! Sweet, but not TOO sweet, just right

Rachel may be getting another banner soon if these are the rewards :)

Glad you like the coffee pot Susan. It's a little lurid, but rather jolly.
