I discovered this week that my local morning pit stop on the way to work for coffee and scones has been sold and taken over by new owners. That can always be a bit of a worry when your favourites places change hands, particularly when you have just done a review in the local about it...are they going change all your favourite dishes...will it be the same......will they keep the same coffee brand. After two weeks of running the place, to my relief everything seemed to be ticking along as normal, my scones are still fresh first thing in the morning and the coffee and team are still the same. Until that is on Friday when I turned to walk out the door and noticed something new on the counter top. It looked very much like a cake I used to buy when living in Germany, a sweet bread twisted with poppy seeds. I already had my scone in hand so didn't want to be a pig and buy a slice of that too, there is always next week I thought, to try it out. Well, I'm the impatient type, particularly when it comes to cakes and can't wait till Monday so I embarked on making my own this weekend. I couldn't remember what it was called or find the exact recipe so I opted for creating my own and will see next week how mine fares next to the real thing. As it turns out, one of the owners is German so I could be in for some more nostalgic treats! All that worry for nothing hey?
