baking love

I am officially in love with baking. I love the smell in the kitchen of melting chocolate and rich vanilla essence. This week i've got to bake for my son's end of school year party. I'm going to do chocolate brownies from the Hummingbird Bakery recipe book. They always come out delicious as long as you use the best chocolate, i find Divine's 70 per cent cocoa amazing.

Today i'm going to bake Chocolate Marble cake with white chocolate icing that i saw over on Jessica's website Knitting on Trains. It's from the Peyton and Byrne book, British Baking. I've promptly ordered the book on Amazon!

But i had to feature this on my blog - it's just stunning. It's made by and is the most inspiring way to show a recipe. Combining laid back music and simple photography, this should be the new way we watch and learn how to cook. I love it.
