Daisy sipped her cooling tea and read the yellow sticky note again.
Warning! This recipe was imparted by creatures of the sulphurous pits. Baking this may result in the release of a demon from the seventh hell. Also may contain nuts.
She considered this.
The note had been tucked between the pages of Nigella’s How to be a Domestic Goddess that Daisy had bought for a pound from the British Heart Foundation. Her first thought had been to avoid the recipe in question. The problem was that she didn’t know which one it related to, the note having fallen onto the marble worktop as she’d flipped through the book. She had a strong suspicion that it was the apple-syrup upside-down pie but couldn’t be certain and would feel foolish if she was wrong.
She took another sip of tea.
Returning it to the shop would solve the whole dilemma, let someone else figure it all out, but that seemed a bit mean. Besides, she’d wanted the book for ages and the cakes looked too delicious to pass up.
