Purple Sweet Potato Scones- Recipe

I've been at the purple sweet potatoes again. *Cue lightning bolt and maniacal laughter*

This weekend's post was meant to be rye bread ice cream to tie in with last week's recipe, but because of time constraints I couldn't schedule it in. Instead, I decided to make something out of the neat 100g portion of purple sweet potatoes I found in my freezer.

Rúgbrauð (Icelandic Rye Bread)- Recipe

When I returned from Reykjavik a couple of weeks ago I was already missing Cafe Loki's homemade dark rye bread. Luckily I found their recipe (allegedly) online, along with a bunch of other rúgbrauð recipes to refer to.

Before we continue, you should know that this bread takes SEVEN HOURS to bake. The good news is that's the hardest part: the bread batter itself is just seven simple ingredients mixed together and poured into a tin. All you have to do is be patient while it bakes.

Lemon Rose Cake for a Comic Relief Bake Off

I kind of forgot to mention on this blog that I was going to Reykjavik last weekend (hence no bake). Sorry! I will write about it next week- along with posting a recipe inspired by my trip.

Onto the cake!
