blog: Searching for Spice
Michael has come up trumps with my favourite kind of tart… a tart tart… thank you Michael!
lovely Susan has made the prettiest little cakes for the blogarversary table… filled with jam and love… next time she’s going to fill them with Nutella… heavenly!
… so Karen, bless her, got it all a little bit wrong and piled up her ‘party’ books and so came up with these little numbers… I guess with all the sweetness we may appreciate something a little savoury!
now how incredible does this cake look…? a wonderful chocolate cake for the table… which contains prunes and rum… what’s not to like… ?
so it’s a warm welcome to the lovely Jack as its his first Random Recipe… which of course makes him an RRV… and aren’t these a wonderful way to start a great journey… the tables really on cake overload now!
a genius pick of a recipe from Victoria after shuffling through her own hand made recipe book… and my favourite loaf… a yummy banana bread
never heard of this kind of cake before but Ruth insists it tastes wonderful and who am I to argue with this months sponsor?… looks bloody good anyway!
bending the rules out of all proportion here is Phil… but what do I care with such a wonderfully light and fluffy cake… nice one Phil!
how wonderful are these unusual bars from GG…? I just love them, they look so sophisticated but you know they’re really very naughty!
a bit of a twist is this Vik Sponge… and C has it all going on with this lovely gooey apple cake… I think she made them for me… she said they were made for the Queen…
Suelle is celebrating her 300th post along with my 2nd blogaversary so a little double party going on here, which is just as well as with the addition of these wonderful treats the party table is beginning to groan!
so impressed that Gary persuaded his OH to bake this for me… and she said yes!… of course Gary got to pick the book and the recipe, so the drama was there but then he duly passed on the sweat and tears!
hot on the heels of his OH we have, what is probably the best pudding in the world… I thank you Gary… Gary?… still in that sugar and banana induced coma?… Gary?
returning to an old favourite cookbook has inspired Jo and these pretty little cookies are just so adorable aren’t they… would you like bite? Come on… I know you would!
poor Clare originally picked a Christmas Cake for this months challenge but she decided against it and picked again… for which I do forgive her but only because these beauties are such a delightful sticky treat!
oh look, a Random Recipe Virgin along for the celebrations… and Emma has gone out guns blazing with this triple layer cake, using some of her mums wonderful lime curd… delightful!
Debbie celebrates the incredible and torrential rain (go to her blog and check out the video) we’ve been having with this wonderful olive oil cake and some excellent photography too.

i’d never heard of Ginger Kisses until reading Lucy’s post but they look damn fine to me and a most welcome addition to the now seriously bowing in the middle celebration table!
The Baking Addict is relieved not to have picked macaroons again for this challenge and she really lucked out with this yummy treat which also happens to be one of my favourite cakes… although I think i’ve said that about a lot of the cakes made this month… and i wonder why i’m so fat!
Mel has adapted a little recipe for these divine pinwheels from a book that took her a while to find on native NZ baking… not that they’re particularly native in any way but that’s the point… oh just read the post and you’ll see what I mean…
well I feel truly honoured that Lou has entered into RR this month… she’s been a busy bee and will hopefully be blogging again more frequently… I do hope so if she comes up with stunning stuff like this fabulous loaf cake.
The Vikings favourite pudding this time and Choclette has created a thing of beauty with this very naughty little puddings… can you just imagine the heavenly smell in her kitchen when these were baking… my mouth is quite literally dribbling!
