It's another sunny day today and
Annie and Audrey are enjoying the ESS.
"Sorry, Peach. Did I disturb you?"
We spotted some on our walk this morning
(photo taken this morning)Aren't these gorgeous.
And they smell amazing.
And so did this Cinnamon Loaf cake while it baked in the oven . This is one of my favorite tea-time loaves and is enjoyed with tea or coffee.
There is a layer of cinnamon-sugar in the middle and then it is topped with more.
Can you ever have too much cinnamon sugar? I think not.
Can you see my kitchen company today? That's lovely Lily (looking quite perky today) and audacious Audrey sitting at the window. Audrey is about to steal some of Lily's food while she's busy watching me. Audrey's motto is...
'Always eat when the opportunity presents itself.'
Sounds good to me.
That cake looks utterly delicious!ReplyDelete
Truffle and Brûlée love their ess.ReplyDelete
Oh...you make me ENVY !ReplyDelete
I would love to have the ESS too, but here they only sell on internet. My mom doesn't sure because I'm a really big boy.
Mom said your Lilac Photos are so Beautiful

I've never commented before, but I do ready your blog every day ( and love it! )
I'm so jealous! I love lilacs and can't grow them here. Mina would agree with Audrey about food. I agree ... you can never have too much cinnamon sugar!ReplyDelete
Baking cinnamon bread will certainly bring out some wonderful smells. Wishing we had lilacs in the back yard!! Our jasmine is our awesome smell right now when we go outside onto the patio!!ReplyDelete
That cinnamon loaf cake looks delicious Deb! Your two tone lilac is very pretty!ReplyDelete
I've never seen lilacs like that! (Thanks, Helen, for the name.)ReplyDelete
Lily looks marvelous! Springtime perks all of us up, I think. Oh that tea loaf! I'll have two slices, please!!!
My lilac bush is not quite blooming yet. But our apple trees and crab trees are and the smells are heavenly! So beautiful. Until a wind comes along and blows the blossoms away.ReplyDelete
Yum to that lovely looking baking Deb!
Lilacs and Cinnamon--wonderful aromas! XOXOReplyDelete
I smell lilacs coming through my windows every spring; it's a wonderful fragrance. And I can smell that loaf all the way here. Too bad I can't taste it, too...ReplyDelete
I just love those lilacs!ReplyDelete
