Top 10 Funniest Tweet Awards – German Grand Prix 2019

Oh. My. God! What a race!

Did you all enjoy that?

For the third race running we’ve been treated to an absolute blinder, and this time we had the added bonus of rain.

F1 Bake Off – Round 11 – Germany

Another Formula 1 race, another Bake Off.

I found so many great tortes for the German Bake Off, I was spoilt for choice. My favourite, just for the name alone, was Beinenstich Kuchen or Bee Sting Cake, but I had to discount that one as it had nuts in … and small boy has a slight allergy.

So in the end I plumped for ‘Alexander Torte’, which is an East German cake that has its roots in Latvia.

I can tell you this is definitely worth baking. Continue reading

F1 Book Club – Round 11 – Germany

I have wanted to read ‘Death in Venice’ for ages.

I had the film on video for years and never got round to watching it … loved Dirk Bogarde films, just never managed to find time to watch this film.

So, when I thought about doing the F1 Book Club, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to read ‘Death in Venice’.

But what did I think? Continue reading

F1 Bake Off – Round 10 – Britain

Scones!

But is it scone as in gone or scone as in own? Therein lies the first debate when it comes to the subject of scones and cream teas!

Either way, scones are what I baked for this week’s F1 Bake Off for the British Grand Prix.

They are super simple to make, are perfect snack this weekend for watching the British Grand Prix, the Wimbledon Finals or indeed the Cricket World Cup Final. Continue reading
