Today on the blog I am sharing an incredibly delicious and deceptively simple recipe with you all that has honestly received rave reviews from not only us but all the tradies and workmen I’ve had at my house recently for our renovations.
There’s been so much going on at our house lately. Finally a year and a bit after we began the structural work on the house, we have been able to start renovating the inside and building a whole new kitchen!
This cake reminds me of an old school vanilla tea cake, but WAY better! The process of ‘burning’ the butter is well worth the little bit of extra effort because the flavour just shines through each bite in this cake.
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to travel to Italy with my Bertolli family. We stayed in the most incredible villa nestled amongst olive groves in the hills of Tuscany, just outside of Lucca. I had always heard about Lucca as being a magical place to visit, as the city is completely surrounded by walls, but had never managed to get there during my other trips within Italy.
I've been having a slower couple of weeks which is super unheard of for me. I've been able to sleep in, see friends, cook new foods I have wanted to try, watch trashy TV (The Bach mainly haha!) and work just a few hours a day in between it all.
I've been on the hunt for some chewy granola bars that actually hold together once they are out of the fridge for agessssss. There's no point making snacks if you can't take them with you when you're out and about! Luckily for me (and you guys!) I finally hit the nail on the head this week with these babies and with just 5 ingredients!
