About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

Interesting Blog

Being very interested in food and its preparation on board I am keen to share this Canal Cook's Blog that shares recipes that are interesting. I have a veg drawer full of beetroot! Some returned with us from the boat and more came in our organic veg box from Riverford today. The Best Mate says we have more in the freezer from a previous harvest! So I did a google search for a recipe and came up with this one. Now I have found it I think I will be a regular visitor.

I can recommend Nigel Slater's recipe for Beetroot Chocolate Cake. Google and you'll find the recipe. It's fantastic!

Nice to hear from you. It looks interesting too. I am not usually a cake and puddings man but my boys will probably love it. Well worth a try. Thanks.

The cake is in the oven! If it comes out tasting as good as the uncooked mixture it will be a real treat (you have to scrape the bowl don't you?)

The proof is in the eating!

See the photo just uploaded to the post

The cake was a little more than moist in the middle but tasted great.
