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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dark chocolate and mint. My absolute favourite flavour combination, so much so that I reckon that’s the bulk of my birthday and Christmas presents right there. No one can go wrong. I’ve been wanting to post something with this combination since day one, but usually the choc mint I keep in my fridge never lasts […]

Gluten free carrot and walnut trees

I was asked to make a gluten free carrot cake for a good friends 30th birthday party and combined housewarming, like almost everyone I know I like a good carrot cake, but wanted to do something a little different. Also, I always find that a massive cake can be a bit daunting, no one wants […]

Ban Toblerone muffins

It’s the end of the summer holiday season and that staple present your dad/sister/cousin/boyfriend brings you back from that exotic destinatation? A Toblerone. Someone was only remembered at the airport on the way home. I jest. (Well, I half jest, as this is often true) BUT let’s look at this positively. Toblerones are well under […]

Peanut butter jelly cupcakes

Henry- My lovely friend and fellow cast member of “Dracula” celebrated his birthday this week. This boy is OBSESSED with peanut butter. HE HAS HIS OWN BLOG ABOUT IT. (Which is actually rather brilliant & funny: @worldofpb) So I had to make a peanut-butter-something for him. Obvs. Also, a side note, I’ve called these “cupcakes” […]

Digestive biscuits

Wow. What a week I’ve had. Stress city over here! As I was feeling a bit sorry for myself I wanted to bake something that would comfort me, a bake that would be the equivalent of a “nice cuppa tea”. So what else could I make but the simple, humble and near perfect digestive biscuit. […]

Choc and coc muffins

I have an unhealthy obsession with all things “coconut”. So until this love affair ends, of which I hope it never does, I’m afraid you will be bombarded with statements such as, ‘scatter some desiccated coconut on top’, ‘if you have any coconut milk, use that instead’ OR ‘there’s never enough coconut in anyone’s recipes’. […]

Gluten free World Cup cookies

World Cup fever is definitely upon us and after last weekends result, I thought that maybe the boys needed some baking inspired help from home, hence the lemon, lime & Brazil nuts (get it?!)……well, that and I wanted to try out some gluten free biscuits. I’ve noticed that literally all the shops I’ve been in […]

Nutella fudge bites

Ok, there are 3 parts to this post and I feel like I would be cheating you if I didn’t tell you them upfront. 1) I needed a quick ‘impressive’ recipe for a little cocktail party I was holding at my flat. As I didn’t have much time, I suppose I could have just not […]

Nellies almond & apple cake

My gorgeous friend Nellie has recently been told that she has to try and go gluten and dairy free (as have an increased number of others it seems). When she told me, she seemed a little overwhelmed, so I thought I’d make a simple recipe for her sweet (and now dairy and gluten free) tooth. […]

Dirty gooey choc brownie

I had a challenge. My brother’s girlfriend (Mari) was turning 30, so I obviously offered to bake a cake. If you make it to 30, I am willing to TRY and bake anything that your heart desires. I may live to regret saying that. So Mari said she didn’t mind what it was, just something […]
