There’s nothing quite like the autumnal flavours of a huge toffee apple. I, however, find them stupidly difficult to eat, so I made this Gluten Free Apple Cake with Toffee Frosting for slightly easier consumption and something perfect to share (oh and I reckon tastier…!) Enjoy bakers! Ingredients for Gluten Free Apple Cake with Toffee […]

The longer, slightly warmer days have got me all ‘Spring-like’ so I thought it time for a Spring inspired bake – My Gluten Free Raspberry and Walnut Cake with a cheeky lemon drizzle. I’m back off tour for a week and wanted to make something that I could share around. My Dad was popping over […]

IT’S EASTER – and what better excuse do you need to make this delicious Chocolate Orange Cake. Lent, for me, usually revolves around giving up chocolate, so I always fancy something indulgent and chocolatey as an Easter Sunday reward. So here it is, simple as that – My Chocolate Orange Reward Cake. Ingredients for Chocolate […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. ┬áIt got me thinking (dear God, not about having one) but about […]

I was asked to make a gluten free carrot cake for a good friends 30th birthday party and combined housewarming. Most of my friends love a good carrot cake, but I wanted to do something a little different and so I made these Gluten Free Carrot & Walnut Trees. Also, I always find that a […]

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. […]

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 […]

This ‘Healthy Alternative’ Easter Simnel Traybake 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 […]

I looked in my fridge recently and since the weather has been getting a bit warmer, I realised I hadn’t been eating as much porridge as I usually would…. I guess you’re wondering what this has to do with mini jam muffins. Well my friends, I usually put jam in my porridge and I looked […]

Raspberry Cake

March 3, 2014 by bright-admin - in Cake, Indulgent

Raspberries were on offer. Do I need any other reason to bake an everyday raspberry cake? Well, that and I was having a very civilised tea and cake afternoon with some EastEnd friends and thought I’d try out a new cake recipe. I’m always a little wary about trying cakes out on people at a […]
