I promise I haven't disappeared forever, really! Things here are going well. Button is 6 weeks old now, and we are slowly (very slowly!) learning how to juggle life and a baby, all in the midst of moving house! So we are currently living amidst a mess of bo...

Blueberry Coffee Cake
A coffee cake is not, as many British people around me seem to think, a coffee-flavoured cake (well, it can be, but that's not usually the point). It is instead a class of  cakes  intended to be eaten alongside coffee (for example, as part of a breakfast me...
