I've tried a couple of new recipes from blogland over the last few days. First up was this cake from the blog spinning a yarn. Super yum! I didn't have any sultanas so added diced apricots, I used a mixture of apple, carrot and zucchini. It was a big hit with all the family and I didn't bother with icing - even better. Definitely a recipe I'll be making again.

Then I tried some pretzels from the blog growing up. So yum and I was transported (memory-wise) to a cold German day buying one at a Christmas market, yum, yum, yum. Well worth the efforts and few steps involved. They too went over really well with the family and disappeared quickly.

Got any links for recipes you've tried and liked from blogland?


  1. Oh glad they worked out so well!

  2. I had to try those cake/muffins too! Oh wow so yummy. I used all carrot with pumpkin, sunflower and poppy seeds. The boys lunch boxes will be happy tomorrow.

  3. oh, yum! i've always wanted to make pretzels... i'll have to give them a try soon.

  4. Oh I'm so glad you enjoyed the cake (and Meg too!) Side note- am I right in thinking you're in Papakura? Maybe we migth find time (some day, some how) for a wee crafty get together?
