Posy poses with fruit loaf

I am playing with media settings in my post today. Thanks to a few tips from  fellow blogger Maureen at  http://kiwis-soar.com/ , I finally found the confidence to look at the photo settings for my blog. It was hard to decide which settings to use but I eventually selected  the circles  because I thought they suited the floral nature of the photos.

If you would like to try your hand at making the delicious fruit loaf in the photos , the recipe can be found here  (http://www.healtheries.co.nz/healthy-and-gluten-free-recipes/healthy-cakes-and-slice-recipes/fabulous-fruit-loaf).  Personally, I think my photo looks more appealing than the Healtheries’ one but…….it’s not the look that matters but the taste. And this loaf tastes wonderful.  It’s full of dates and apricots, sultanas, linseed and wheat germ and, because I couldn’t help myself, I added ginger, which is not in the recipe, but should be; in my opinion.

    The circles look lovely with the flowers, well so does the fruitloaf. There is so much more on WordPress and we really need to experiment. I made the other day some banana oat slices from a bloggers recipe and they came out so wonderful. As my children thought it was too healthy I HAD to eat them all by myself…… I do make sacrifices like that all the time……. 🙂

      Thank you Ute. Well, you know now that if you make my healthy fruit loaf, you won’t have to share it with your children. You can have it all to yourself. 🙂

      I wouldn’t mind betting that there is some interesting advice on the subject in one of the Ladies Home journals you feature in your blog 🙂

      Indeed they were yummy; so good that I was encouraged to overindulge. The recipe says the loaf will keep for 2 weeks; who are they kidding? 🙂

    Mmm – sounds tasty AND healthy! Well done for creating a gallery – it’s not easy, that’s why I don’t create one very often! Are the flowers from your garden or a bought bouquet?

      The nasturtiums were given to me by a friend. The parsley and alstroemeria are from my garden. I must confess I found it easier to make the fruit loaf than the gallery of photos 🙂 ! But then I have had more practice with baking than with computers.
