Crumble cake and bagels

Another crumbleberry cake happened.  It had to after I had shared the first one with my parents and Manny had told me how disappointed he was to find there was second piece for him!! I had already planned to make another as it was so excellent. This time I went for strawberries, rasberries, blueberries and a few blackberries.

I added oats and walnuts to the crumble topping again.

It smells of hot jam when it comes out of the oven and is amazing warm, but we have discovered it is equally delicious cold!

Here are my bagels boiling! After watching the great British bake off Manny gave making bagels a go. Well they were delicious, so much so we ate quite a few! So I thought it best to make some more for lunches and gave it a go myself. I was surprised at how easy it was!

I know there is room for improvement but for a first go I actually preferred them to shop bought ones!

Sorry about the blurred last picture - I was too excited to try one!!


  1. Perfection! and what a great job Manny performed....your kitchen (new & beautiful) is a busy, joy filled place.......♥Debi

  2. Your crumble cake looks delicious, I'm sat here drooling. I've only watched The Great British Bake Off once and it was the one where they made bagels. Do you know, I've never eaten a bagel.

    1. Really, bagels are delicious! I can highly recommend them!
