The only good thing with our arrangement is that when I get up I bake to occupy my time. He usually wakes up to the smell of something baking on the weekends and he slowly slithers from under the covers to the enticing smell from the kitchen.
A few weeks ago I decided since it was a lovely warm day I would try my first attempt at a fruit tart.
As reached for my favorite baking book "The Joy of Vegan Baking" and found a recipe that I thought I could tackle.
I started by making a quick shortbread crust then making a banana custard filling followed by a layer or strawberries. It didn't take too much time and most of that time was chopping strawberries or whisking the custard. ( I was slightly obsessed with the sizes of sliced strawberries..LOL)
I have mentioned this book before and I highly suggest it for those who want to make some tasty desserts. It has a lot of baking tips in it which is helpful for someone ,like myself, who has only been baking for a year.
Needless to say, that husband of mine made his way into the kitchen and was in weekend heaven when he saw this waiting for us.
Perhaps mornings are not so bad after all.....
