Sunday Brunch at Waitrose Cafe

Aaaaah 🙂 Once in a while when my husband ‘endures’ me, he will just have to sit patiently for a while whilst I browse Waitrose. I always tell him, not to fret .. only 10 minutes BUT it never really takes 10 minutes does it. A minimum of 45 minutes whizzing around with the little one in tow in a trusty trolley, not necessarily shopping but having a good browse!

Its a good thing they have a lovely cafe. How pretty is their teapot. Little one had a hot meal. Their allergy booklet is fab there, she could enjoy their fish fingers whilst we enjoyed our brunch.

I did not buy loads with the husband imposed ‘time limit’ but enough to have the impression that Waitrose is not that pricey as what we think it is. Quality was amazing and ps. there were loads on offer. There’s a special half price event at the moment too.

As lovely as it is to browse and pick everything up, its easier to just do an online shop. Peek at the offers on HERE.

Hope you had a lovely Sunday too xx

 

 

Raspberry Lemon Scones

No recipe post 🙂 Just felt like whipping up some scones without following a set of guidelines. Rogue baking. Haha!

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 🙂

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 🙂

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.

Hope you had a lovely first day in the new year 🙂

Chocolate Swirled Banana bread

I try to hide some bananas in the house to allow them to go brown before the Mr gobbles them down. When they are nearly black, they are perfect for baking. I love Banana Bread and decided to make chocolate swirled ones.

Thought the swirls will turn out great. However, my swirling technique needs more help! No worries as they were delightful. Chocolate complements banana bread very well and would love to bake this again soon!

Time for yet another slice 🙂

Happy Monday everyone!

Orange & Chocolate Scones

Zest makes me smile. Orange zest, lemon zest, you name it. My home smelled wonderful when I made this for breakfast. Combine orangey goodness and chocolate, scones cannot get any better!

I could not stop eating them even though am more of a savoury person for breakfast! The texture was amazing and of course, everything tastes best when you enjoy them straight out from the oven!
