Dish of the Month is a blog event to celebrate the recipes of the generous and charming, Nigel Slater. I'm cooking my way month by month through The kitchen diaries II, however you can make any dish from any of Nigel's books or use the online recipes. The full rules are shown below.
For my February Dish of the Month I have chosen Nigel's Little apricot and oat cakes which he describes as "a cake with backbone, not to mention an interesting texture which comes from rolled oats and dried apricots". The recipe is in the February chapter of The Kitchen Diaries II and I can highly recommend these little cakes, they are proper little buns and the finely chopped apricots and peel that they contain give them a nice tangy flavour. They keep very well in a plastic container too.
