I haven't been blogging for a while, too much to do and all that stuff. Will try harder!!!
Anyway, today is International I Love Broccoli Day, and although I didn't have much time to celebrate I did indulge in my annual culinary broccoli adventure.
I had almost run out of ideas, but luckily the fourth Triplet came through with an original and unexpected broccoli recipe: Broccoli Cake! A savoury cake, to be sure, but a cake all the same.
I changed the recipe a little, for example I added a little Stilton cheese - I think fried bacon bits would also be very nice. The recipe is very generous - I made one medium and two smallish cakes. Also there was way too much broccoli - but no problem, I just made some broccoli soup as well!
It is too late to have anymore than a taste - I can't sleep with a full stomach - but tomorrow I shall indulge by having this cake with a Hollandaise Sauce and bacon bits - yummmmmmm!!!
Happy International I Love Broccoli Day!!!!

|After ten minutes - perfect release from the cake tin!|
|The big cake needs a little bit longer|
|Cut that cake with a sharp knife!|
|Delicious even as is - but much better with white sauce and bacon bits, I bet!|
