Always rushing, too much to do, feeling like you have no time to bake? Then this is the recipe for you - a one bowl, super simple, utterly delicious and Christmassy recipe. A connection to Christmas gone by as Lincolnshire plum bread was always part of traditional festive baking, a time to stop and stir a little, the fug of Christmas smells as it bakes and a gorgeous little loaf packed with prunes and spices to enjoy slathered with butter, with mugs of hot tea.
Recipe in my book, #bakemeacakeasfastasyoucan or you can find it here on @thehappyfoodie https://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/plum-bread-in-a-hurry

Bouncing on the trampoline (see point above - used as blackmail to switch off said device!) I make it bouncier apparently which is a compliment they say!

When I was 18 years old, I walked the North Cornwall Coastal path with my friend Sarah. We had just finished our A levels and we put the world to rights as we heaved far too heavily laden rucksacks up steep steps and down slippy paths. We ate pasties on the beach and called into post offices to withdraw cash and to phone home. We leapt in deep rockpools at Treyarnon Bay and slept in Youth Hostels at night. Our last night before the bus to Bodmin and the long train ride home was spent in this tiny @yhaofficial on the water’s edge at Boscastle Harbour. We climbed the cliff that last evening to watch the sun set over the Atlantic before heading back to sleep in our tight bunks as the high tide lapped the sea wall outside. We returned home to summer jobs and results, university and real life. I have been back to Boscastle many times since and watched the story of recovery after the floods, its triumph after adversity. It always reminds me of those simple days of freedom and hope as we took those steps along the coastal path at the end of our childhood. #happymemories #rainyday #walking #coastalpath #adventures #simplethings #simplymiranda #seasidekitchen #itsmorethancakeitsaphilosophyforlife #cornwall #bythesea #seaside #magicalplace #secretharbour xx
