Scottish Blackcurrant Drizzle Cake

We all got a little bit excited about this new blackcurrant drizzle cake recipe we created using our delicious homegrown Scottish blackcurrants. They grow so well here in our Scottish climate and we have tonnes of them in the garden so are always looking for new ways to use them. I’ve not seen a recipe like this in traditional Scottish cooking but I can almost guarantee they would have been growing them in their gardens many moons ago as they are so easy to grow in this climate and they provide such a good nutrititonal boost.

Garden Kale Salad Bowl

This delicious easy salad bowl was made with a few different varieties of fresh home grown garden kale. Kale is so super nourishing and I love the vibrant green colour of the leaves. My favourite way to eat kale is in a delicious green smoothie but I am also trying to eat and create more salads this summer so I created this delicious kale and salmon salad bowl. I really enjoy a huge bowl of fresh greens for dinner its such a light but filling evening meal. The quinoa in this dish adds a delicious nutty taste to the kale and an extra protein boost too.

Rhubarb Cream Cake

This delicious butter free light sponge is lovely with the flully cream and sticky rhubarb drizzle. Rhubarb is definitely one of my favourite things about late Spring. I love a good Rhubarb pie but quickly get bored of making pie to use it all up. This little sponge cake was inspired by a Nordic sponge recipe and I think it works really well with the cream and rhubarb.
