Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Humbug I must confess, I’m not really bothered by Halloween. It means we’re a step closer to Christmas, but that’s where my enthusiasm for it ends if I’m honest. When I was a kid, my parents were of the “It’s an American holiday, you’re […]

Minty Double Choc Cookies

Minty Double Choc Cookies

There are plenty of ways to make things minty. Mint essence and flavourings are fantastically effective, and of course actual mint is always a good call. But, when I’m baking anything chocolatey and want to add some mint, my go-to is Mint Aero Chocolate bubbles. […]

Twix Rocky Road

Twix Rocky Road

I love Rocky Road. Frequent readers might notice that I have a few Rocky Road recipes. I like to add all different chocolate and other bits and bobs. It’s a super easy way to combine all of your favourite things into one super sweet calorie […]

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of my great loves. As are lemons. Well, not lemons, no one actually likes lemons. But, lemons as an ingredients or addition (hi gin and tonic!) A few weeks ago, I made an absolutely gorgeous rich chocolate cheesecake. It was the best […]

Earl Grey Loaf Cake with Elderflower Drizzle

Earl Grey Loaf Cake with Elderflower Drizzle

Confession time. My Earl Grey Loaf Cake was meant to have an Elderflower Buttercream, which is absolutely yum. But, I put too much liquid in it, and I’d run out of icing sugar. So, it became an Elderflower drizzle. Still very yum. If you prefer […]

Basic No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

Basic No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

I’m not great at cheesecake. My no bakes work pretty well, but I cannot bake one at all. They go all funny! Even when it comes to no-bake, I tend to try to keep it simple. I stick to really basic recipes with as few […]

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Husband often steals my recipes at work. He’ll Come home and tell me that he’s made my Lemon Drizzle Cakes, or super-sized my bourbon cream recipe (amazing btw!). He’s also been making some of my muffins. Now and then, the tables turn, and he tells […]

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 […]

KitKat Rocky Road

KitKat Rocky Road

I’ve wanted to make KitKat Rocky Road for a while. KitKats are my weakness. I love them. Especially a KitKat Chunky with a cup of tea. There’s nothing better; I could have one a day. I’m not a huge fan of all of the funny […]

Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

I’m a bit fussy with rhubarb. I always think that I like it. When it appears in the shops I get all excited. Perhaps just because it means that the warmer weather has arrived, and I love that! Then, I find it a little tart […]
