The Joy Of Sweet Treats

One of the perks of THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF is being able to gain inspiration for new bakes and swap recipes. We are all waiting on Joy to share the recipe for her very posh vegetarian loaf, and I am sure that many of you have been bookmarking recipes that you want to try.

Brian, the creator of BUSHBOYS WORLD produced that perfect loaf of bread we saw yesterday, but we were also pleased to read that he and his daughter get together every now and then to bake (YAY – for family baking!!)

Brian shared that the recipe for these tempting Florentine biscuits came from another blogger “Bizzy Lizzy”:


I mentioned to Brian that Florentines are my sister Mandy’s favourites. I often by a packet of M&S florentines when I am going to visit her. But I think next time I am going to use the recipe Brian shared to make florentines from scratch – much more impressive!

I don’t know if you are aware of the debate over where Florentine biscuits came from. You would have thought they came from Florence, but those who say they are not adamant they are more likely to be French than Italian. Well, we don’t think it is worth arguing over where these delicious biscuits came from. One thing we are sure is that the following track did come from Florence…And The Machine!!!
