Cheese and Marmite Muffins

I’ve recently become a MARMITE SPECIAL ADVISOR (yep, real thing!). Which basically means I love Marmite so much and want to tell the world about it. The Marmite company (or I like to think of them more like family) have become aware of this and sent me some, guess what, Marmite, hence my new creation […]

Simple Honey and Cinnamon Flapjack

I’m on tour with a play at the moment and I am travelling to different parts of the UK every week. It’s quite a gruelling schedule – Poole to Blackpool, Exeter to Liverpool. Living out of a suitcase is definitely not for the faint hearted. I can’t travel much ‘stuff’, including food, as I’m not […]

Halloween Marble Loaf

Halloween is fast approaching so I thought a little colourful baking was in order, so here’s my Halloween Marble Loaf. I’ve always loved how satisfied I feel after cutting a slice of marble cake. Like you’ve done something really magical while baking, when actually it’s blooming easy and pretty fail safe. I know it looks […]

SuperFood Crumble Bars - Vegan/Gluten Free

I’ve been away on a UK tour of a show, hence a few less posts than normal, and I’ve been so eager to bake! I am back for a week and wanted to make something that I could take away with me as a bit of an energy lift during the interval of the show. […]

Coffee & Chocolate Mini Loaves

My boyfriend’s Dad, Ian, is a coffee fiend…and I don’t think he would mind me saying that. So trips back to see his parents in Milton Keynes often inspire some baking. Therefore these, Coffee & Chocolate Mini Loaves, are for Ian. The man who helps with my blog, assists me in anything technical and plies […]

Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes

It’s still feeling summer-y and it’s also my Grandad’s birthday. My Grandad is notoriously picky when it comes to food, he likes simple flavours and nothing too far from the ‘ordinary’. My vegan/gluten/nut free coconut and lime energy balls would not be up his street, but who doesn’t like a classic Victoria sponge? To be […]

Lemon & Lime Olive Oil Mini Muffins

These Lemon & Lime Olive Oil Mini Muffins also come with a little lemon and lime drizzle – to make them extra special. This is a re-vamped version of an older post (actually one of my first!). I really fancied baking something, but with the weather so warm, I was a little confused with what […]

Nutty Fridge Bars

It’s just TOO hot to bake, but I want a nutritious and cooling snack. I got my thinking cap on and so here are my Nutty Fridge Bars – they live in the fridge to keep them fresh and cool and are sort of like a sticky version of a granola bar. Gluten Free and […]

Rocky Road

I’m off to my friend, Will’s, BBQ and I refuse to go empty handed but I also don’t have much time. These rocky road bars are simple, quick and a massive crowd pleaser. Will is a chocolate fiend, if he’s having a chocolate treat he is having a CHOCOLATE treat. There’s no time for nuts […]

Toffee Crisp Cookies

Yep. You read that right. Toffee Crisp Cookies. Hell yeah. These crispy joys of deliciousness came into existence as part of a family treat. We are all headed to a little country cottage for my mums 60th, she loves my wholemeal and peanut butter cookies (click here for the recipe) so I made a ton […]

Coconut & Lime Energy Balls

I’ve been to Thailand since my last post (…I know, lucky me!) and while I was away, coconut was pretty much a staple food in all meals – hence my slightly more exotic Coconut & Lime Energy Balls. Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog will already know of my love for […]

Blackberry & Yogurt Spelt Cake with a White Choc Drizzle

Yet another birthday got me baking, this time my Dad. This Blackberry & Yogurt Spelt Cake with a White Choc Drizzle isn’t necessarily the first thing one might think of for a birthday, but my Dad always likes something a little different. He’s not one for a big chocolate mess or a creamy vanilla bomb, […]

Jaffa muffins

One of my favourite childhood treats were Jaffa Cakes. I say childhood treat, my adulthood enjoys them too. So, I thought I’d do a variation and make some Jaffa muffins. It was also my brothers birthday last week and I didn’t have a moment to bake something for the day, so these are also know […]

Blooming Healthy Chocolate & Banana Bread

I love chocolate, I love bananas and I love eating. I also like trying to be ‘healthy’. My cupboards were still full of Easter chocolate treats and I wanted a healthier way to consume them. So was made my Blooming Healthy Chocolate & Banana Bread. I’m all about guilt free treats and this is something […]

Gluten and Dairy Free Cookies

I’ve over indulged. Again. My excuse: I’ve been busy, it was Easter, lots of food on the go, needing a quick sugar fix and no time to bake. The rush has calmed and so I made these SUPER SUPER HEALTHY Gluten and Dairy Free Cookies. I also challenged myself to keep the cost down, so […]

Maple Syrup Carrot Cake

It was my brother’s girlfriend, Angela’s, birthday and I wanted to make her a cake. I know Carrot Cake is her fave and I thought, what with Easter coming up, it might be quite apt. Not one for being too traditional, I wanted to put a little bit of a spin on it. So was […]

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake

My little brother, Tom, recently moved into a new flat. Instead of the traditional plant pot, I thought I’d bake him a house warming gift. When I suggested this to him, without a moments hesitation he said ‘I’d like a Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake’. This, coming from my bother who takes at least a […]

Gluten Free Raspberry Swirl Tray Bake

My Gluten Free Raspberry Swirl Tray Bake has been made for all those incredible and wonderful people who are doing a bake sale for RED NOSE DAY, which is on the 13th March. I wanted to make something that was simple, yet a little different, but, most importantly, totally scrumptious so people will come back […]

Half Term HobNobs

“Half Term HobNobs” were created because I imagine some of you might like something to bake with the children while it’s half term? These are wholemeal too, so they’re not only a fun little thing to spend an afternoon making, you also don’t have to feel quite so bad when devouring them too. Although these […]

Valentine's Day Slimline Dessert

This Valentine’s Day Slimline Dessert is not only kind to your strict diet plan but also to your bank balance. I am a massive advocate of ‘cheat days’ – a little of what you love is ALWAYS good for you – but when dessert can taste this good and not count as a ‘cheat day’ […]

Valentine's Day Cupcakes

Say all that mushy stuff and give into consumerism with these Valentine’s Day Cupcakes. Valentine’s day is looming AND one of my best friends had her engagement party last weekend, so I thought it fitting to bake some Valentine’s day cupcakes OR, as I’ve been calling them, “love cakes”. These simple vanilla cupcakes always – […]

Wholemeal Kiwi & Pistachio Loaf

Kiwis are a new obsession in my household, however, I seem to buy a batch, forget I’ve got them and then realise I have 6 to eat in a day before they go off. Hence my Wholemeal Kiwi & Pistachio Loaf. Now, a word of warning, these kiwi’s need to be ripe and sweet, a […]

'Lighter' Blueberry Yogurt Cheesecake

Everyone loves cheesecake, right? At least everyone I know loves cheesecake. I’m surrounded by cheesecake fiends. However, I’m not a fan of the MASSIVE calorie/sugar/fat content. I needed something that resembled a cheesecake that I could have half of and not feel toooo guilty. Nothing in the shops was inspiring me, so I made my […]

Rum Soaked Sultana Scones

I asked my Dad what he would like me to bake in the lead up to Christmas and he promptly answered SCONES. I’ve made scones before (Wholemeal Christmas Spice Scones – Mini Strawberry Scones) but he said he wanted the classic fluffy sultana scone with a twist. I thought alcohol was the answer to this […]
