It's Sunday morning and I am looking forward to doing some summer baking before the day gets too hot. I've had a lot on the go lately and I find spending some time in the kitchen is really therapeutic.
A good time to do some self reflection and to check in, whilst creating yummy treats is always rewarding.
This make ahead peach and blueberry coffee cake will be a definite favourite recipe and its great for brunch. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
