Regular readers of this little blog might recall my Cherry Clafoutis recipe and reflections on cold winters, hot summers, a lovely Border Collie named Libby and a house that Peter and I rented once upon a time. While I've never been so hot nor so cold in a home in my entire life, I did absolutely love the dream kitchen with ILVE appliances. That oven put out the most beautiful sponge cakes and succulent roast dinners I've ever created. Yes dear readers, it was moi who invented the Sunday roast and freshly baked morning and afternoon teas on the leafy back deck, with a little help from ILVE of course. And that sentence segues nicely into this week's recipe for a nougat passionfruit sponge which appears on live with ILVE. I am truly delighted to be included on the ILVE blog (with not one, but two posts) and feel humbled to be featured with esteemed cookery writers and chefs such as Belinda Jeffrey, Bill Granger and Janet De Neefe. Thank you ILVE for this wonderful opportunity to share a great recipe. So dear friends, please pop in to the ILVE site, read a bit of trivia and history about sponge cakes and baking for shows, road test the recipe if you will and let me know what you think. Happy baking.
