Mah Granola

Inspired by dan churchill's epic granola.

Mine includes: cranberries, raisins, pepitas, cashews, almonds and macadamia nuts. (minus the coconut flakes)

The verdict?

Not too shabby dan! For my taste buds, I think I'd like it more if it was a wee bit sweeter but then it defeats the purpose of making it healthy and full-of-goodness. Fortunately, the raisins and cranberries made up for the missing bit. (Ok, I'll admit it. I have a sweet tooth!)

Happy Birthday Mum...!

First one in a long while that was baked with love.. (not in haste!)

What is it?

A Lemon and Coconut cake.

A sort of mash up between two favourite Hummingbird Bakery recipes: the Lemon Loaf (majority of ingredients) and Lemon Poppy Seed cake (shape and glaze).


  1. Ended up making it with coconut milk mixture (200ml coconut milk + 50ml water) for the dairy intolerant one in the family.
  2. Creaming the butter and sugar first - because my mind could not comprehend not doing so.
  3. First ever bake using the bundt tin that's been in storage for over a year.

The verdict:

  • A crumbly textured cake with a hint coconut flavour.
  • A hit with the family; and
  • No one got sick.

Happy Birthday Mum! xx

Self pat on the back for I have not lost the touch.. phew.
