Christmas pudding

img_0746

Sat on the serving tray

Each little bit of you oozes festive smells,

Allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg

Salsa away with seasonal fruits, mingling

Over a drop of festive tipple

Note how the alcohol burns away in a wonderful display

And leaves a fruity taste to accompany the

Lovely sultanas, currants, candied peel and cherries

#Cake #Marzipan #Sweet #Battenburg #Sponge #Pudding #Jam

Built like

a sponge colossus

to many – a

teatime snack to

enjoy just after your chops and vegetables

now how much you have is down to you

but then again – its a question of how much sponge

unless of course, you don’t like Marzipan

reactions to this cake – understandable

“great!  can we have one more slice please ?”

Brian’s Banana Loaf

Another challenge from WordPress’ 365 Writing Prompts

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what
would it be? Describe it.

(Ok….Dailypost, here goes nothing….!!!)

A pure delight

a combination of sweet bananas

flour , butter eggs and chocolate chips

not forgetting the sugar of course

creamed together the main ingredients

and the star of the show folded through

stuck in a buttered greaseproof tin

and sat in a nice warm oven

Towards end of cooking – cook the custard

Take out of oven – cut a very big slice

and cover in the custard

and simply – enjoy.

Conjure

Conjure

Crafting a dessert, is a bit of a magic trick

Oranges sliced and pineapples diced get laid in a dish, and

Next comes the syrup and then the batter, before the dish is covered in foil

Just before the dish is put in the oven – four holes are made to let out steam

Until its time – for it to be turned upside down and

Royally presented to all sat at the table

Excited little ones ask – can i have custard with mine ?

Egg

Egg

every egg laid

at the chicken coop

has his or her day

 

served up as a

side alongside bacon 🥓

or three sausages

 

or combined with veg

to create a quiche lorraine

cooking slowly in oven

 

or whipped up in a

meringue or custard for a

tasty pudding

 

or left to grow up

and hatch 🐣 on the farm, to

make more eggs for tea

 

Banana Split

Flavorful

Bananasplit

Served up in a glass bowl

Wonderful fruit combines with frosty ice cream

Everyone smiling as the bananas are

Enveloped by the Ice cold tastes of strawberry and chocolate and cream

Together – as they melt and mingle – they make a heavenly delight

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

Tart

Tart

taken as a snack or a pudding

a buttery biscuit base inlaid with

rich fruit jam in its centre

totally tasty at tea time

 

twist on the tale ?

a bake well places an almond sponge

right on top of the fruity bit

tempting nevertheless
