I don’t think I have told you about this new job. I’ve told you about other jobs I think, but I have another. This job, is the best yet! I managed (not sure how) to get a job in the “prep area” at Counter Cafe in Hackney Wick. This involves baking and making all the cakes, biscuits, brownies, pies, salads, juices and anything else that we sell that isn’t cooked to order. It is a glorious job. I haven only been there about 2 weeks but still, it’s exactly what I want to be doing. I was told that I would get the opportunity to try out my own recipes which I was very excited about. I didn’t think however, that I would be given the chance from day 1 to do my thang. I was asked to make the “special” on my first day which was a salad and having made this salad for myself the previous week I thought it would be safe to give it ago. I think it went down well! Then on my second day I was set free on the cheesecake so I decided to make a Cardamom & Chocolate Cheesecake, the recipe for which I came up myself and shared with y’all on here! I was chuffed to say the least! Since I began writing this post I’ve also made my Apple & Cinnamon Flapjacks, and Blueberry & Walnut Banana Bread (with normal flour).
