Come on people, it's been AGES - last meet I was still pregnant and by the time we've organised ourselves she'll almost certainly be eating :o

So how about a meet during the holidays? I'll start the ball rolling with dates - most of our usual activities are off over the summer, so any day of the week is fine, although prefer not Friday.

w/c 23rd July - yes
w/c 30th July - yes
w/c 6th August - no
w/c 13th August - yes
w/c 20th August - yes (excep fri)
w/c 27th August - yes

I could be there. No concrete plans for holidays as we're off on hol before term breaks up. Depends on visits to parents/sisters etc. But really would like to get together again if only for some more of Lin's rhubarb cake!

How about a monday then to fit in with LB2001?

Lin: Eh? Are you moving or is it an extention/renovation? I can't remember.....

LB2K: Third trimester already? Flipping heck other people's pregnancies don't half go quick!

As I'm now a lady of leisure, I can do pretty much any day except Fridays.

Away w/c 6 Aug.
W/c 23rd July is Stompy's last week at preschool so I'd rather not take her out any of those days, so that would limit me to Wed/Thurs that week.
Various relatives threatening visits throughout August, but no dates confirmed yet, so will just need to take my chances.

Loving the idea of a bake-off! ;)

I don't work Mon or Tues, so if it falls on one of those days, I'll come along! Oh, and I've never made rhubarb cake, but our plant is getting mahoosive, so I'm going to have to start making some soon...

X-posted with LB2K+1 .... now feeling a little unsure about a bake-off ....

And Steeler :D :D :D to being a lady of leisure!!!

OK, I'm nowhere near Yorkshire, I shouldn't even be reading this thread but.....

Rhubarb cake recipe(s) please!

I use the Riverford rhubarb and cinnamon cake recipe here: http://mixmashandmunch.blogspot.co.uk/2 ... rning.html except I use ground ginger instead of cinnamon (because frankly who wouldn't, nothing beats rhubarb and ginger). It's gorgeous warm or cold with lashings of cream. More pudding than cake really.

ETA: I noticed she has different timing from Riverford, the original recipe says 75 minutes at 180C. I think my hot oven needed only slightly less than that.
