Monday Morning Comfort

Later in the season, the morning treat is likely to be a slice of the the old family recipe fruitcake, brimming with currants, raisins, citron, almonds and apricots and tenderly aged in good dark rum or brandy. 

With grey skies beyond the window this morning and snow in the offing, there are lovely gluten free Florentines to go with our dark roast coffee.
Lovingly robed in chocolate, the almost indecently sumptuous cookies melt on the tongue like snowflakes, and their Old World richness lingers like a blessing or a poem.  One can almost forget about the snow.

Sounds like a breakfast after my own heart!

Hi Cate

Wow does that look good. We have a bite in the air today and the odd flake. Just the weather to be inside with the comfort of a favourite treat.

They sound so good.
A rainy, not to cool day.
The last of the leaves are falling.
The fruitcake picture reminds
me of the special taste...
