Yesterday the sun shone and the oven worked overtime. It was a day of baking. I say “a day”, but in fact it was all over quite quickly. Both the recipes were delicious and adaptable, but I’ve only included one as I’ve started to enjoy a good bottle of red by the fire so the other recipe can wait for another time. The banana puff pastry tarts are as easy as it gets to make and to eat, and come from the pen of Nigel Slater in his excellent book “Real Cooking”. The picture is for Cooking in Sens with reference to cutlery – she’ll understand.
