Jazzy Doughnuts

A picture of two jelly donuts where one is cutted in half, showing jelly

Just look at it

a taste sensation

zesty and fruity fruit

zipped up in a sweet pastry pillow

best eaten after tea – but can be

eaten, scoffed or wolfed down at any time of day

rich red fruit at its centre

really nice with a warm cup of tea

yet you can also have it for a dessert!

Parcel of fun

#food #curry #pastie #FDDA

To some

its a heavenly dish

kept wrapped up in its pastry parcel

king of the curries (created by the british)

arm yourself though – the recipes vary

Made the same way of the days of empire

a meat is spiced in a number of spices and

rolled around in a sauce of tomatoes, spices and cream

some might say – its not spicy enough, but

as it was devised for those with a delicate pallette

lots of people enjoy it as a main meal or teatime snack

as its not as fiery as its madras or vindaloo cousins

Something to look forward to

#Baking #food #pie #apple #pudding #writeclub

Salford, 10th June 2020

The preparation seemed endless

the pie dish lined with the finest pastry

rolled out , sugared and buttered

now sat there waiting for the filling

The Smell of Bubbling Bramley apples

merging together with sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon

attracts the local feathered residents

looking longingly past the window glass

dropped into a sweetened parcel

and sealed with a spiced sugared lid

finally toasted together in the oven

served up after the fish and chips

and the perfect accompaniment for it

is spluttering away on a hob

as the smell of fresh vanilla custard

meets with warm apple pie – just the job!

Turnover

A tale of an Apple Turnover

This is a bit of a wonder

Undeniable – the baker is a bit of a marvel

Ripe apples transformed into a take home delight

Nice eaten hot with custard

Or cold with a bit of icecream

Varieties exist – some are spiced and others have sultanas in them

Everyone enjoys them as a breaktime treat –

Rows of delicious pastries leave, as fast as they are baked

Eccles Cakes

Salford, 12th February 2019

Filled to the brim

with wonderful fruit

your average kid ponders

how they can squeeze so much

into something smaller than a scone

Wall to wall raisins

sit side by side

in their sleeping bag

of flaky pastry

Baklava

Bread cannot beat this nutty confection

As honey and nuts combine in the Greek sunshine

Kept in a cool place so it keeps its tasty flavours

Locked in, served with ice cream or a Greek coffee

And normally served up at the end of a meal.

Vexed with the number of ones to try ? The

Almond ones are particularly tasty

Garden Apple Pie

 

A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

 

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste

Fortune Cookie

#NapoWriMo #Blogging101 #Food #Biscuit #Chinese

 

For centuries

Our destiny has been held in

Round , sweetened pastries of the orient

Telling coded messages after dinner…love, life and good fortune

Until now, they remained the mystery

Nobody knew what lay in store after the feast

Except, of course – the pastry chef…
