    Ah yes, “helpers”. Baking wouldn’t be half as much fun without them.

    Oh this looks delicious! I love the texture that polenta brings to baked goods. Nigella has a great rhubarb cake with polenta that is a firm favourite here. I think I need to buy another jar of mincemeat! Where do you source frozen cranberries?

    @Kristin little fingers getting squashed under the rolling pin does not a happy helper make! She was must better at picking the roasted hazelnuts out of their skins for the Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Squares that I sent you.

    @Arlene often the frozen cranberries are sourced from my own freezer. I often stash a bag in there when they fresh ones are plentiful in the shops.

    @Mary it was only your imploring that got the recipe up there so fast! Hope you enjoy it.
