It’s the holidays so, when I’m not off gallivanting (I love that word!) with friends and family, I’m sitting around the house doing…. well…. nothing really. I know there’s lots of jobs that need doing around the house and, despite my pronouncements at the beginning of the holiday that I was going to get everything done and then relax, it appears that I’m not very good at finding the motivation to do anything when it’s not been planned in advance!
All this sitting around on my bottom reading blogs and watching, quite frankly rubbish, TV is not doing my waistline any good at all! I’m also spending far too much time in the kitchen, experimenting. Some have been successes and I’ll put those on here soon, others have been slight disasters. I’m off to see my sisters and their families this weekend and, of course, I want to take something nice with me. They’re complete exercise freaks, so it has to be vaguely healthy! I’ve got some peaches in the fruit bowl that are beginning to look slightly sorry for themselves and definitely need eating before I go as my husband is not a big fan.
I’ve experimenting a lot with fruit and nut combinations. I think this a result of stealing my dad’s chocolate when I was younger; he’s a big fan of Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut bars. So today, I give you, Peach and Hazelnut upside-down loaf.

- 20g demerara sugar
- 2 peaches
- 125g butter
