Torta Do Santiago at Scorrier House Estate

Torta Do Santiago at Scorrier House Estate

Last week I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful Scorrier House and it’s surrounding grounds, which happen to be the venue for this weekends Great Estate Festival. The recipe I’m baking is for torta do Santiago which a super light flourless almond sponge cake with the fresh flavours of lemon & orange and is also free from gluten and dairy. The beautiful stately home “Scorrier House” has its very own orangery where I had the privilege of picking some of their home grown fruit to use in my recipe.

Orange and Almond Amaretti Biscuits

Orange and Almond Amaretti Biscuits

Similar to my coconut macaroons, my orange & almond amaretti biscuits are simple and easy to make and keep really well in a Kilner jar...if they last that long! This is part 2 of my kitchen tour in the beautiful  Loft available to rent through Seavista BnB and my outfit has been styled by Roo's Beach - bright and cheerful yellows and blues, just in time for Spring!

New Years Eve

New Years Eve

Its the penultimate day before New Years Eve so I thought now was the perfect time to share my long awaited sausage roll recipe. I bake these every Saturday morning for the cafe as they make a great mid morning snack with a coffee, but when shrunk into bitesize finger food they become the perfect accompaniment to your new years cocktails. I’ve also got a really simple recipe for adding a festive twist to your favourite bubbles to clink and cheers as the clock strikes 12!
