Christmas breakfast muffins

This year I wanted a special Christmas Breakfast. Usually we are so busy sorting the dinner, opening the presents and guzzling something bubbly that Christmas Breakfast is usually a bit of tea and toast. These muffins can be made in advance and are super tasty, therefore no need to scrimp on any indulgence at breakfast […]

Classic Christmas cupcakes

I bought REALLY cute Christmas cupcake cases, so I had to use them. There really is no other reason for this post. So my classic Christmas cupcake was born. I always think cupcakes are such great little gifts and always look nice when displayed too. A little Christmas Eve treat for the family?? Enjoy! Ingredients […]

Christmas celebration cake

Just a simple Christmas Celebration Cake. My birthday is very close to Christmas so I always have a joint birthday/Christmas party, a great excuse for all my favourite people to get together and, of course, I always bake. So, a short intro, but there’s a lot to this recipe. Here it is, the Christmas Celebration […]

Christmas scones

Oh Christmas scones. Beautiful lovely Christmas Scones. If you’re a follower of my blog you might remember how much I love a scone. So as its Christmas, I thought I’d make a ‘Christmas’ scone, but one that I wouldn’t feel so bad eating, hence the wholemeal flour. Although if you’re of the ‘who cares, it’s […]

Christmas rocky Road

Christmas Rocky Road is probably the easiest Christmas themed treat there is going. It’s utterly indulgent and perfect for the chocolate lover. I wanted something that was going to be quick & easy to make, look Christmassay and made me feel naughty eating it. I reckon this Christmas Rocky Road covers all those bases. But […]

Christmas baking

The Christmas baking has begun. I’ve delved in and decided it’s time to get ready, practice, prepare and list all the Christmas Baking that’s to be done over the festive period. I won’t lie, I’ve been thinking up Christmas Baking ideas since the summer, but I’m only just making them, and I couldn’t be happier. […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse

I’m having a dinner party. Quite a late night dinner party and I needed a dessert that was light and easy to digest at what would probably end up being midnight. So here I created the dairy free chocolate mousse. This is VERY chocolate-y. You’ve been warned, but a little goes a looooong way here. […]

mini strawberry scones

Scones. A classic, sometimes overlooked (?!) staple beaut of a treat. Making these ‘mini strawberry scones’ means I can have one and not feel guilty. Or (more likely)  I can have two and not feel THAT guilty. I’ve popped dried strawberries in them instead of raisins/sultanas just because I thought it would go well with […]

Healthy gluten free granola

Anyone else often have cereal as dessert?? I absolutely LOVE granola! Morning, noon and night. I’d be happy if this was the only meal I ate for the rest of my life (…maybe a slight exaggeration, this evening I made spicy chorizo burgers and that’s gotta be in my top 5 dinners…) Anyway, granola is […]

CHOC bark

I thought it was time for a bit of a sophisticated Halloween treat. This looks massively posh, but is so blooming easy to make and will be sure to impress (when actually you’ve hardly done anything….) Apple & Caramel scream autumn/Halloween to me, so if you have a bit of the caramel left over why […]

Traditional Bonfire Night Parkin

Traditional Bonfire Night Parkin is a customary bake from Lancashire to celebrate/commiserate (however you want to look at it) Guy Fawkes’ failed attempt at blowing up the houses of parliament – Guy Fawkes was from Lancashire. It’s traditionally eaten on the 5th Nov while watching fireworks. Also, to me, this is the very beginning of […]

Healthy Halloween Baking - Pumpkin & Maple Syrup Loaf

So, we’ve had the indulgent Halloween family treat, now time for some healthy halloween baking but also something that is equally as scrummy. This is a waste not, want not sort of bake. So many of us buy a pumpkin, carve a spooky face and then throw away everything we didn’t use. So here is […]

image1-3 copy

Halloween is just around the corner & it’s time to wrack your brain for some Halloween Baking Ideas again… Lots of people I know have recently given birth, have small children or seem to be looking after someone else’s child. CHILDREN CHILDREN CHILDREN.  It got me thinking (dear God, not about having one) but about […]

Mocha Cupcakes - Stuffed with Coffee Cream

Ohhh Mocha Cupcakes… For AGES I’ve been wanting to put coffee in one of my recipes. I am not a traditional coffee drinker. I’ve never liked it, but I’ve always wanted to. So for the past year or so I’ve been trying to wean myself on it. Stupid really, but I’d like to feel more grown […]

peanut butter bnana oat muffn

I thought it was about time I did a very healthy post (I’ve got a family wedding this weekend and didn’t want to be bloated in my new, slightly tighter than usual, dress) I wanted something super good for you and super easy to make. So these little beauts were created. My boyfriend actually said […]
