This weekend I decided to start thinking about Mother’s Day. I have bought the cards, googled ideas for gifts and then started looking for some new cake recipes to experiment with.

I came across this lovely recipe by Jamie Oliver. It is his gluten free Orange Polenta cake (please follow the link for the recipe). This gluten free cake uses polenta and ground almonds instead of flour and the combination of orange zest, fresh orange juice and orange blossom water (yes it does exist!!) makes the cake really light and fragrant. I found it quite an easy cake to make using our beater and dare I say I chose it because of its classic colouring, elegance and the citrus fragrance of the cake reminded me of Spring!

Also, I spent a lot of time this weekend out in the garden, catching up on all those winter jobs. You know, mowing the lawn, pulling out all the dead leaves and cutting back plants - I definitely needed a piece of cake by the time I had finished! In doing so, I thought I could take some new photos of our beater in a more Spring like setting! Have a look at the photos that I post on Wednesday and let us know what you think - even the cat tried to get in on the act!!!

Please remember to go to our Instagram or Facebook page to enter our competition. All you have to do is like our image and let us know why you would like your mum to win one of our stainless steel beaters. Be quick though as the closing date is this Friday 22nd March 2019. Maybe you could win our beater as the perfect gift for your Mum for Mother’s Day.

Happy baking! Sam xx
