While the Florentine flapjacks and the ‘healthy’ pear and almond loaf were pretty tasty, I have to admit that they weren’t the most demanding bakes I have ever attempted. Therefore I decided to try something a little more complex this week and remind myself yet again that I do have some baking skill.
Since my imaginative efforts rarely goes beyond sugar, it is probably unsurprising that my go to present on all occasions is something of the baked variety. Since my Dad only asked for flapjacks this Father’s Day, I thought I would spice my recipe up a little to incorporate another of his favourite treats: Florentines.
Apologies for the slight hiatus in the blog the last couple of weeks: since I went a little overboard with a few recipes I found my self so inundated with sugary goodness that even I had to stop! However I am back this week with another of my ‘healthy’ bakes, and it was surprisingly a lot nicer than I even expected it to be! (I’m great at selling this, aren’t !?).
