Delilah Fine Foods Nottingham

Last weekend, I stepped into foodie heaven, Delilah’s for the first time and it definitely won’t be the last!

I had a lovely wander around the shop admiring the foodie products they had to offer. Our cookie mixes will be right at home at Delilah’s πŸ˜‰

Found a place at the bar and ordered CAKE and coffee. Here is one of their lovely staff slicing up my cake (all mine!)

It was AH-MAZING! I never had this combination ever, it was a rose & Turkish Delight cake. Loved the huge chunks of Turkish Delight on the cake.

Cannot wait for my next visit! Different cake this time or perhaps lunch.

8 days in!

8 days into 2014 and I am quite pleased with myself as I have documented more baking and cooking in pictures than ever before. I have to say ‘Thank you Instagram’ as it makes it so much easier with their filters. It always took quite a bit of effort when I had to time myself meticulously and only photograph our products or baked goodies when the light is good. UK weather and natural sunlight… one can only chuckle.

I made this Raspberry Dutch baby for breakfast a few days ago. It is a very simple and straightforward recipe. It looks fantastic and definitely one of the best ‘pancakes’ I have made πŸ™‚

Raspberry Dutch Baby with cream

This is just fabulous for breakfast or brunch as the batter is not sweet at all. Just ignore and forgive the dollop of cream I added to my Dutch Baby though πŸ™‚

Look at sneaky Momo the cat trying to get a whiff of my Dutch Baby. It is rather challenging to get a picture like this. Thankfully, I was armed with my camera in hand and managed to get this shot rather quickly before she was told off.

Cake and cat

Hope you had a lovely first day in the new year πŸ™‚
