Hi Daylily\o/ that was my plan :-) Skip, I have at least 16 different types, possibly a teeny bit obsessed, unfortunately I have a small garden:-)
Willi I got a beautiful orange one which you will see on my blog when done (if you want to), really large, but delicate flowers :-) Pixi...see above comment to Sticki lol:-)

ooooh I like those. Nice name too! Key Lime Pie Heuchera for Sticki?

13 May, 2012

 

Key Lime and Poppy seed loaf

Yield 1 x 20cm (8") cake or 1 x 22cm x 12.5cm (9"x5") loaf

Ingredients
6 key limes, zested and juiced
150g (0.75c) granulated sugar
85ml (0.33c) milk
145g (1c +2Tbsp) cake flour
1tsp (5ml) baking powder
0.5tsp (2.5ml) bicarbonate of soda
25g (45ml/3Tbsp) custard powder
a pinch of table salt
55g (0.25c) butter, softened
1Tbsp (15ml) flavourless oil
3 egg yolks
2Tbsp (30ml) poppy seeds
3 egg whites, whipped to stiff peaks

Method
Preheat oven to 350F(180C). Butter and sugar a loaf or round cake pan.

Rub the lime zest into the sugar and set aside.

Mix the lime juice and milk in a measuring jug and let sit at least 15 minutes.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarb, custard powder and salt. Set aside.

Cream together the butter, oil and lime sugar. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, fully incorporating each before adding the next one. Mix in the flour mixture and curdled milk in the usual fashion (dry-wet-dry-wet-dry), scraping down the bowl after incorporating each wet addition. Mix in the poppy seeds. Fold in the egg whites in thirds: quickly stir in the the first third to lighten the batter slightly; fold in the next third not as quickly, and lightly fold in the final third so as not to lose the foamy nature, but not allowing streaks of white to remain in the batter.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake 35-45 minutes or until the top is golden, springs to the touch and an inserted wooden skewer escapes cleanly

got this off the web ages ago.

14 May, 2012

 

Sticki, it wasn`t the fork ......didn`t break mine, she (you know who) just isn`t a lady, no breeding I`m afraid.
Ba loved the Geums, looks as if you`ll soon be holding the National collection.!!

14 May, 2012

 

Very nice! Maybe it'll be widely available soon... ;-)

14 May, 2012

 

Ignoring the imputation of my breeding and fork skills Stroller, I wouldn't mind if I had a bigger garden:-)

14 May, 2012

 

Spritz, is this the one you meant as the apricot one?:-)

14 May, 2012

 

Nooooo.....it's the 2nd 'new geum' in your blog.

14 May, 2012

 

Got you, El Wano:-)

14 May, 2012

 

A gorgeous peachy shade, it is lovely.

14 May, 2012

14 May, 2012

 

Wildrose, that's how we all start, just one more plant lol. There are such wonderful gardens and plants on here it can't help but inspire . In 2010 I was inspired to have a makeover of my little back garden after seeing so many lovely ones on here...be warned:-)
