Baking is For Life, Not Just For Christmas

Just before Christmas, I mentioned to Hubby B, that as a keen baker, I'd like to invest in a new mixing vessel. Namely a deeper narrower ceramic jug with a handle. At the time, my main bowl was a huge pretty mixing bowl that held huge batches but I was becoming tired of the clean up after baking as it was so wide, the mix would whizz everywhere. We agreed that I could hunt for one after Christmas as I was after something very specific size and colour wise.

After doing all of my Christmas based baking, I was putting away my big mixing bowl and I accidentally dropped it on our ceramic floor. I was not pleased. It was a very useful size for other things (such as proving pizza dough) and I was massively disappointed that I no longer had it. Although, silver lining, at least I'd completed my baking first.
Imagine my surprise when on Christmas Day, I was presented with the perfect mixing jug! It matches our intended kitchen colour scheme, is large in volume and I can't wait to use it.
There was a bit of a theme with some of my gifts this year. I also received a Cath Kidston spatula which is more hardcore than anything I've had before (and pretty) and I also received a Sophie Allport 'Busy Bee' apron which I've had my eye on for a while.

Once I've used these things to whip up a yummy bake, I also have some beautiful dessert forks from Marks and Spencer to dig in with.

My plan, after finding a good brownie recipe over Christmas, is to have a play with these by adding more yummy (bad for you) ingredients. Yummy Yummy!

  1. I dropped my favourite glass mixing bowl a wee while back and i was devastated. It was perfect for letting the bread dough rise and for when i was batch cooking.

    I feel ur pain!

    The replacement is beautiful though :) very handy when pouring cake mix too ... never seen that before :)

    Happy baking xxx

    1. Oh my goodness! It's not not happy times is it?!

      I can't wait to use the replacement although I might have to get another big one too ;-)
