Remember the post about the bee log DB made me and we attached to our south facing wall. Here is the latest picture - 4 holes now full and sealed with wax (or whatever they use). Many bees are busy entering and leaving quite a few of the other holes so hopefully, more baby bees to come.
Today I made a light as air cake, the recipe for which can be found here sponge cake
It is very pale and I didn't have any cream or jam to fill it with. However, in the back of my store cupboard, I found a jar of blackcurrant and apple 'fruit leather' base so used that instead.
In case you are wondering what that is, it is the mush from making and draining overnight, the fruit for a jelly based jam. I push it all through a sieve, weigh it and for each 1lb of mush, I add 1 lb of sugar and boil it to setting point (very carefully as it tends to spit being so thick). You then store it in small jars for when you want to make fruit leather. Simples!
The texture was as light as air (cornflour I reckon) and the taste quite mild but the flavour of the 'jam' made it.
