Sugar-free orange and olive oil cake




I snipped this Tom Hunt olive oil and orange cake recipe out of The Observer a couple of weeks ago because it is sugar-free and therefore a sort of guilt-free snack for the MLs, plus we have Mini ML on a sugar-free life right now so it means she can partake as well.

We had it with clotted cream... well, there has to be some sin to a pud... but it struck me that it might also make a good breakfast dish with a creamy coffee and some cool plain yoghurt.

Best cafes: Assembly, Santa Cruz, California






ML's mother-in-law and her husband are quite the brunch fans and have been testing hotspots across the pond on our behalf... they found this rather awesome spot in their local town and wanted to share it with the ML crowd... just to make us a little bit more jealous of their sunshine/surfy/fluffy pancakes n beach barbecues lifestyle.

The eggs Benedict came de-constructed (only in the USA would the waiter not bat an eyelid at that request...).

Assembly is open 10-3pm at the weekend for brunch.

The hotel with the mostest (granolas)




Four granolas and one muesli! Titchwell Manor in Norfolk not only has gorgeous views over the marshes and is in a fantastic spot for beach walks, bird spotting and general North Norfolky-ness, but also has the most impressive selection of homemade granolas. Hat's off...
