The Breakfast Club – 26th June

June 28th, 2010

Coffee and tea ice cream

Another week, another Breakfast Club. It seems I’m getting into my stride now and this one wasn’t the all-consuming week of work that was the last one. Thankfully the weather was glorious and tied in perfectly with the menu: a refreshing elderflower cocktail to start (made with our homemade elderflower cordial) and coffee and tea ice cream to round things off (with plenty of food in between). ┬áRecipes to follow!

Sour cherry and walnut bread
Sour cherry and walnut bread from Ottolenghi. We served this with cardamom bread, Nutella, some leftover lime marmalade and homemade blackberry and greengage jam. People seemed to love the sour cherry and walnut bread, but my favourite was definitely the cardamom bread (from Bake by Rachel Allen, the recipe can be fround here). Enriched with butter and egg, the texture is similar to brioche but with the spicy, heady scent of cardamom. We’ve been eating leftovers smothered in Nutella!
