No one could say I didn’t have a plan. The sun was out and as soon as baking was over I was going to the beach so I wanted to get everything done in the morning, but Jamie said cold cake absorbs the mixture better so honey and pistachio would be made first, to cool while I made muffins, then onto topping both of them. Then off to the beach. Best laid plans and all that…

The honey and pistachio cake mixture smells AMAZING when you pour it into the tray – Greek yoghurt and lemon and orange zest, fresh fresh fresh. I followed the recipe to the word (very unlike me which I think is why baking has gone awry in the past) and the cake looks great fresh out of the oven. Keep reading about cake and muffins…

What is your favourite cookbook? Do you have one that you use several times a week but an equally loved book that only gets dusted off once every couple of months?

I have lots of favourites but when I got shown the Avoca cookbook http://bit.ly/d9BZuq it was instantly on my wishlist…
