Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Berry Picking Since moving to a new house in August, we’ve become slightly fruit picking obsessed. We’ve got an apple tree in the garden, so we had a few months of apple madness. There was lots of cooking with apples and new recipes. Then, we’ve […]

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

I really massively need to branch out a little bit and start making circle cakes. The sponge bit must be similar, and there are all sorts of fantastic filling options. But, loaf cakes are just so simple. They cook really well, you can add almost […]

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

I’m calling this an Earl Grey Fruit Loaf because it’s got Earl Grey and fruit in it, and its loaf shaped. There’s also no butter or fat, so it doesn’t seem to be a cake as such. You could call it a tea cake though […]

Coffee Loaf Cake

Coffee Loaf Cake

I love coffee. But, I do not like coffee flavoured things. That coffee Quality Street is the worst thing in the world. Coffee flavour things I find generally don’t taste like actual coffee. Much like banana flavour things don’t taste like bananas. Unless you make […]

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Bailey’s Loaf Cake sounds good, but it’s not Bailey’s. It’s the Aldi Version which is like £3 and tastes exactly the same. It’s what I use in all of my Bailey’s bakes. It’s just good sense! As a side note, Aldi gin is also incredible! […]

Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

So, I still can’t really do cake. I always say this, and then my cakes always turn out quite well, so I’m starting to look like one of those people that says they’re bad at something and then is actually good and just looking for […]

The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls

The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls

So, I know people say things are the best ever all of the time. Bloggers call everything the best ever as clickbait. It works. But it’s old. These really are The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls. Honestly. I’ve made them using a few different recipes, and […]

Classic Jam Roly-Poly

Classic Jam Roly-Poly

When I say Classic Jam Roly-Poly. It’s not quite that classic. A little different from school Jam Roly-Poly, but only because I’ve reduced the faff. I love a good Jam Roly-Poly. I probably hadn’t had it since I was a kid until quite recently at […]

Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes

Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes

These Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes are amazing. Honestly, the chocolate sponge is just delightfully moist and chocolatey, and even a few raspberries in the buttercream icing gives it a gorgeous fruity flavour that compliments the chocolate exceptionally well. When you bite in and get […]

Valentine’s Brownies

Valentine’s Brownies

Now, first things first. I’m not a huge lover of Valentine’s Day. We have a nice meal and buy each other treats (which we tend to get together, and they tend to be DVDs and things we both want) but we don’t go over the […]
