It looks lovely and I bet it tastes good too, however rather uncattishly Dark Puss would not trouble you to go out again for cream. Is it, like the Sephardic cake you featured recently, flour free?

Nan

It sure looks good. I'd hold the almond though. :<) Currants are just not that common over here. Are those blueberries I see?

a simple yarn

Oh yum! Yep, this book's on my wish list for Christmas...

Kelly

Thanks so much, Karen, for leading me to this cookbook - it's as wonderful as your reviews (and recipe trials) have suggested. (And hooray for the Book Depository, too - speedy service to this side of the Atlantic.)

Bought this the other week when it was half price at Waterstones, the blackcurrant cupcakes are delicious although the icing is a bit sickly if you make it with ribena.

Claire

Sounds delish. I have loads of blackcurrants in the freezer and, indeed, some still on the bushes I'm ashamed to say. The book looks so interesting I may splash out at Waterstones.
Having just read Someone at a Distance I would love to read your thoughts on her journals.

Ahh delicious - and with blackcurrants! How I miss them - and redcurrants and gooseberries too while I think about it. Not allowed here in CA aparantly. I keep meaning to take a look at the farm policies to try and discover why. But in the mean time I will live vicariously through you.

You did a lovely job on the cake. I like the idea of an almond cake. Almonds are so light but add a mild sweetness that sugar can't offer. And the berries are so pretty!

We'd like to invite you to participate in our September apple and peach recipe contest (the recipe can be sweet or savory). All competitors will be eligible to win one of three prizes :)! Please email me, sophiekiblogger@gmail.com, if you're interested.

Thanks :),

I made this cake yesterday for my daughter's birthday and it was amazing! I am going to do a link from my blog to yours.
