Cupcakes at Brixton Market

I have been rather absent from the blogging and twitter world recently. Early starts and a very busy weekend of work and markets took it's toll on me. But I am now enjoying two days off and a working iPhone has out me back in the 21st century so hopefully I should get back on track soon :)

Having really enjoyed having stalls on Brixton markets before, I signed up for the October 'High Tea and Flea' about a month ago. Since then I gave obvipusly changed jobs and now work on Saturdays. So how can you be in two places at once? With the help of two wonderful sales people (aka sister and boyfriend) Special kudos goes to my little sister who travelled down from Essex to help me sell cakes. Having also helped out at the Brixton Bake Off she is now a Mixing Bowl veteran and something of a good luck charm :)

Pancake Bananas

In days gone by, I would enjoy pancakes just once a year on Shrove Tuesday. I know, it's madness and I can't understand why because pancakes are easy to make and, as far as I'm concerned, are perfect at any time of the day. These days I have come to my senses and often make pancakes for Saturday breakfast when I fancy a change from eggs. 

This week I made cinnamon pancakes for brekkie and had some mix left over. We also had a fridge full of bananas so I had a bit of a lightbulb moment inspired by this pin I remembered seeing a while ago. Instead of making regular banana pancakes, I dipped the bananas in the pancake batter and fried them in butter.

Lab Made ice cream

I’m pretty sure this is about as edgy as ice cream gets!

Made to order in what look like KitchenAids there seems to be some kind of witchcraft involved. The steam of the liquid nitrogen seeps out of the shop, shrouding the whole place in mystery.

Matt’s sister introduced us to this great little spot in Hong Kong when we visited her in April. Six months later we ended up back here on 30th October so naturally there was a Halloween twist.
