Buttermilk bread

Just a very light, fluffy toast-bread-like bread, made with very little yeast, same amount of sugar, 2 teaspoons honey and buttermilk instead of water, whole wheat, of course. Brushed with milk a few min before pulling it out of the oven for a soft crust.

Prune cake - Pflaumenkuchen

My father's all time favorite cake - Pflaumenkuchen. Slightly tart prune halves on a 2 cm yeast dough with very little sugar, but dusted with cinnamon sugar before and after baking.
Refreshing, slightly sweet, wonderful breakfast and snack!

Chocolate lavender Earl Grey Bundt cake

This one Udo made - sounds fancy, most interesting flavor and looked great.

I believe (!) he got the recipe from 'love and olive oil', one of the blogs he's avidly following, but... only he knows for sure.

Sourdough bread

Every time different - this one had a really good crust and crumb, only slight sourness. More than half gone the first day :-).

Trying to avoid baking right now, it's so super hot. But it's hard

Yellow brown zipper spider

Found a beautiful zipper spider in the backyard. See the dense white zig-zag under it's body, streching up and down - the zipper. Spider body is over 1 inch long, not a small spider. But we'll take them all to eat some mosquitos!

The other day this had a rolled up something in it, that was gone the next day, but was clearly bigger than a mosquito.
