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 […]

Peach and strawberry yogurt loaf

Happy National Baking Day! I will be very disappointed if you don’t bake SOMETHING today, so as the sun is out in full force, I thought something fruity and summery was in order. Now, this loaf doesn’t taste like the cakey loafs I usually make, as this is made with yogurt instead of butter. It’s […]

Banana walnut choc cake

It was my dad’s birthday and I said I’d bake him anything he wanted, anything at all, this was the result. He actually just said ‘Banana and Walnut’. For a moment I thought of bringing over a bowl of chopped bananas and walnut pieces, then quickly realised that that was only funny in my head […]

I took a last minute holiday the week just gone and found myself abandoning any healthy routine I usually have. I over ate (and drank) and got a bit lazy. I did, however, check my baking account and saw two requests. One for baking healthy on a budget and one for gluten free. Ah ha, […]

Peanut butter choc chip nut cookies

I had two cravings. Firstly, a honey roasted nut craving. Unusual? Maybe. Pregnant? Definitely not. Secondly, a baking withdrawal ‘craving’. (Ok, not strictly a ‘craving’ but you see where I’m going here….) Unusual? No. Fixable? Most definitely. So these cookies were the outcome. A little cookie note, the longer you leave these babies in the […]

Easter is done and there’s a ton of goodies to eat. So, this is something I’m making from my pile of bank holiday weekend leftovers (can I also just take this moment to say, how is it already nearing the end of April?!!) Anyway, I’m a massive fan of a mixed salt and sweet treat […]

Simnel cake

This is basically Christmas cake for Easter. With a bit less effort. I’ve given up chocolate for lent, so wanted to make something with an Easter vibe that wasn’t covered in it. Don’t get me wrong, as soon as Easter Sunday arrives I’ll be having chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, for the time […]

Lemon and poppyseed

  What is the point of a lemon and poppy seed recipe if it isn’t really lemony and has a shed load of poppy seeds? I was fed up with half hearted flavours, so this one suits my taste to a tee, and yours too I hope! My only comment would be to check your […]
