Baking Morning

cranberry buns

Sweet vanilla air
wafts across the room
lasts longer than the cakes

It won’t be long
before that temptress
perfume of fresh bread
permeates the house.
Like Alice, I shall obey
the command to “EAT ME!

and there are two blackberry and apple sponge puddings cooling, ready to go in the freezer

  1. Delicious poem. The only problem is I’m hungry and I just ate breakfast.

    You may need to wear a muzzle
    If the ‘eat me’ sounds like ‘guzzle’!

    After watching the ‘Bake Off’ last night and seeing the sickly fillings and garish colours of some of the creations, these just look so down to earth and more the sort of thing I think of when I think of baking. Yum!

  6. And now I’m quite hungry. I so love winter so I can bake to warm the house and it does smell so wonderful. Those look scrumptious. 🙂

    I think the smell of baking is one of the best aromas in creation: butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and dried fruit. Perhaps that’s why I bake so much for others. I feel inspired to produce a cake tomorrow!
