I have chosen to share books for
10 days that are by Authors I absolutely love but aren’t given the level of publicity their work deserves.
Today I want to do something a little differently though as the book I will be featuring makes you just want to go out and bake.
So I will be sharing a recipe first before I tell you more about the book.
I absolutely love Pavlova. The variations are limitless, with strawberries, and kiwi fruit, or chocolate and nuts with pears.
Here is my never fail Strawberry Pavlova recipe
4 egg whites
250g caster sugar
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
500g fresh strawberries
2 tbsp icing sugar
- Heat oven to 150C/130C fan. Using a pencil, mark out the circumference of a dinner plate on baking parchment. Whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer until they form stiff peaks, then whisk in the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until the meringue looks glossy. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla.
- Spread the meringue inside the circle, creating a crater by making the sides a little higher than the middle. Bake for 1 hr, then turn off the heat and let the Pavlova cool completely inside the oven.
- When the meringue is cool, chop the strawberries. Cover in 1 tbsp icing sugar (optional). Let it stand to sweeten. Whip the cream and spread it over the meringue. Put the strawberries on top of on the cream and dust with the remaining icing sugar if desired
I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
So now for my Author and Book feature!

The Blurb :
“Nigella in a novel.” – HEIDI CATHERINE
1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!
Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.
But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?
The Cake Fairies is the fifth novel by fantastical foodie author, Isabella May.
