TCS Bakers ~ Aug 2014 ~ Hungarian Poppy Seed Kugelhopf

This is my choice out of the four recipes
up for the baking
and whenever there is a poppy seed recipe
I will bake it!
and this has orange in it and 
it so reminds me of the first
poppy seed orange cake
I tasted way back when we lived
in Melaka (aka Malacca) in the 1990s
apologies for the quality of the pictures
DH lost my camera which I loan him
for his China trip (and with my biggest memory card too!)
and I even made a simple chocolate glaze,
with great success!
Now I regret making half the recipe!
 this is our 10th recipe from
pages 174-175 of
Carole Walter's
Great Cakes, over 250 recipes to Bake, Share and Enjoy!

FFwD ~ Roasted Peppers and a make up dish

Pretty pleased with myself
I created two shells from one;
and baked me another batch of olive sables
from one of the two rolls left in the fridge
~ * ~
First time ever - roasting peppers
I roasted the peppers for roughly 40 minutes
probably a bit overdone
a dash or two of balsamic added 
would have made it tastier
but it was a good pairing
to Gerard's Mustard Tart
which the Doristas made way back in Oct 2010!
Here is ONE with a good story
 Do check out the rest of group's results for this week's recipe at:

Mini Beef Wellington and more....

Been wanting to make this for the longest time
DH had a fish version of the wellington
and I had the Beef Wellington
 and with the balance of the puff pasty
one sheet folded over sardines rillettes
