The lovely Mary from "Lights on Bright no Brakes" and I already made the "Pumpkin and raisin tea loaf"- we liked it. My kids ate some of it with tea in the afternoon and a bit of butter and jam - hubby and I enjoyed it as is. It stays moist for a few days when wrapped well and I did take the liberty of plumping up the raisnins with a bit of appeljuice before baking. Definitely worth you while! Try it, you will like and then maybe share some with family and friends and/or co-workers and neighbours!
Can't wait to try it!
Candy, if time permits, you should try this recipe. At first, I was a little doubtful as far as adding freshly grated raw squash to the cake batter is concerned. But making this cake is a bit like making carrot cake, the grated squash (red curry squash in my case, also called "Hokkaido squash" in these parts) adds delightful moistness to the finished cake without leaving you with raw bits of grated veg. Just an easy, seasonal tea cake with a really nice taste and a lobely texture.
From the picture she posted on Facebook, I can tell that the very talented Kathy from "Bake away with me" was as pleased about making the "Beet Tarte Tatin" as I was. What a nice recipe, perfect as an appetizer or with a nice side salad as a lunch. Love these recipes that allow me to use that good-quality store-bought puff pastry together with some lovely, seasonal veg. The days are just not long enough to be making homemade puff pastry. If you get the chance, you should really give this easy recipe a try. It looks very photogenic too...if I may say so.
Thanks for the heads up on both the Pumpkin and Raisin Tea Loaf, and the Beet Tarte Tatin. I believe I will be preparing the beet dish this week while guests are in town but after reading the loaf reviews perhaps I shall give this a go. Appreciate the updates!
Peggy, the Pumpkin and Raisin Loaf is a dream - and so is the Beet Tarte Tatin, and both are so very photogenic - I have also made a few of the other recipes - will keep you updated today. Thank you so much for your nice comment in this somewhat lonely "Pea´s & Cuke´s" section!
I just made the Beet Tarte Tatin also. It is delicious. I used some short cuts which I will talk about in my Post. This recipe is worth your giving it a whirl. It looks very smart on the plate and can be an appetizer or a side for the main course. Love this cookbook.
Dear Mary, as per my comment, I also made the Beet Tarte Tatin about two weeks ago - what a lovely recipe indeed!
Wow. The Beet Tarte Tatin is not only delish, bot stunning looking too!
Cathleen, absolutely, I could not agree with you more!
