Can I Tempt You?

Mum and Dad came for lunch and Ben (eldest son) came home and cooked us all a superb fish pie. So the occasion called for a special pudding yesterday... a butterscotch pecan cheescake... A dense creamy filling full of chopped pecans, topped with a butterscotch sauce.
It was the first recipe I'd tried from my new book - picked up at a bargain price when I'd popped into the supermarket for a few bits for dinner during the week on my way home from work.


It certainly won't be the last recipe I try. I have never seen so many gorgeous looking cakes packed into one book.


I'm not sure we're going to be able to eat them all. Fancy coming over for tea? (Not much of the cheesecake left though)

  7. I want to say yes to your very generous invitation but feel that six of us turning up might be taking the Michael slightly!! The cake looks fabulous. And what do you mean you won't be able to eat them all?! x

  18. Oh yes I'm tempted. Which Supermarket was it?
    The bags made by the YE are great they did a fantastic job in the time they had, obviously had a great teacher.
