Barley Cake | Magyk: Septimus Heap

‘Sally had just been around the tables sharing jokes, offering some newly baked slabs of barley cake and refilling the oil lamps that had been burning all through the dull winter afternoon.’ -Magyk; Septimus Heap, Angie Sage While I’m well aware of barley and it’s use in beer, when it came to turning pearl barley into a cake, I was stumped. There’s recipes for parmesan barley cake and apple and barley cake online, but I really wanted to make one that was more rustic. More old fashioned, where the main ingredient was the main taste ....more

Ilvermorny Cranberry Pie | Pottermore

“The robes of Ilvermorny are blue and cranberry. The colours honour Isolt and James: blue because it was Isolt’s favourite colour and because she had wished to be in Ravenclaw house as a child; cranberry in honour of James’s love of cranberry pie.” -Pottermore.com If you’re wondering what Ilvermorny is, I’ll just wait here for you, while you pop over to Pottermore and read up on the history of the North American witchcraft school.

Bubble and Squeak | The Wind in the Willows

It was bubble-and-squeak, between two plates, and its fragrance filled the narrow cell. The penetrating smell of cabbage reached the nose of Toad as he lay prostrate in his misery on the floor, and gave him the idea for a moment that perhaps life was not such a blank and desperate thing as he had imagined. -The Wind in the Willows,...more
