    Roger, a gorgeous photo, and what looks surely to be an amazing cake! ( I’ve never been disappointed in anything Ive ever tried of Patricia Wells. ) Happy New Year to you and Jenny! Wishing you both all the best!

  17. Roger made this cake look so scrummy when he photographed it in his bit on Myrrh Balls last month (last year!) that I had to get hold of the recipe book. I love pears anyway, raw, cooked, tinned, il n’importe quoi. I found a copy on Amazon for a penny – it’s a great book. The only slight shame is that there are no pictures of the food, and I like (need) to know what a recipe is supposed to look like when I’ve made it. So, Roger, what we should do is re-issue the book with you taking the pictures – at least then we’d have the pleasure of eating our way from beginning to end. Now there’s a project for the New Year!

  18. Patricia Wells is a favorite but I have not seen this recipe before. Sounds like a “must try.” Thanks, Roger, and have a Healthy, Tasteful 2013.
