when friends come to visit...

...there should always be cake! This cake is an elderflower cake made following a recipe from the cookbook 'A Cook's Year in a Welsh Farmhouse'.

Leonie and Jo came to visit yesterday, and were met by a frazzled sleep deprived crazy lady, who was trying to bake frantically while the baby slept!

They cuddled and talked to Stanley, bringing with them a sense of calm, whilst I finished baking the cake and preparing lunch! Then we went for a walk around the village looking for elder flowers, our now annual tradition, for Leonie to take back to London to make into cordial (the train must have smelt good yesterday!)

I'm finding Stanley is a good magnet to see friends and eat lots of cake! Anyone else fancy a visit?

    Wow your Elderflower cake looks delicious! Please can you share the recipe? Thanks

  2. That looks absolutely delightful. I wish I could bake anything different than plain cupcakes. It's getting boring...
    Lovely bog! Found you via Tots100 - we share a place :)
