Songs for Swinging Bakers

The arrival of guests chez nous today has given me a good excuse to do some baking.

Hub and I have been trying to cut down a bit on indulgences recently so I have not been baking as frequently as I used to.  But it is always nice to be able to offer home-cooked goodies to family and friends, isn’t it.

Here is my freshly-glazed lemon drizzle cake – yum!  I used Mary Berry’s very reliable recipe, with which I always get good results.


And while I was preparing it, I was listening to some wonderful, classic swing tunes.  Below are three of my favourites.  Why not give them a listen the next time you feel like foxtroting and jiving around the kitchen! 🙂

  1. Oooh – I love a good swing tune! Can’t say I’ve ever baked along to one though. Perhaps I should try it.

    Enjoy your guests. We are almost at the end of the open visitor season. Lovely though it has been, I’m looking forward to breathing out!

  2. These were some classic dance tracks my parents used to dance. Great to beat the batter in swinging rhythm.

  3. Yummy. I am sure your friends will love this cake. I made Mary Berry’s Lemon Pots for one of the dessert choices today and everyone loved them. Lovely Mary Berry – and this week is the start of “Bake Off”! Xx

  4. I always find Mary Berry’s recipes easy to follow and they always turn out well. Your lemon drizzle looks yummy! The only way I can cope with baking is to listen to music while I do it – I love your swing choices!

  5. You bake with style. 😀 I usually need to bake in silence. That way I am less likely to leave out ingredients. 😀

  7. The title promised a different post and I thought you may be revealing something personal about your life off the blog hehe. At least you can keep your car keys hung up for baking which is a much better way to pass the time. Catchy musical choices by the way.
