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…

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!…

Lemon Curd Filled Muffins

Lemon Curd Filled Muffins

The kids love muffins. Robyn calls them “nuffins” at the moment which is super cute. They’d only ever had chocolate until recently because if chocolate is an option, that’s what they ask for. Then I made some blueberry muffins, thinking that I might actually get…

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 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking cookies, our gorgeous soft and simple Chocolate Chip Cookies are fantastic, and always popular, so much so that we also make a Christmas variation. I’ve said before that we’re not massive valentine’s fans, and that I just use it as an excuse…

Classic Pear Upside Down Cake

Classic Pear Upside Down Cake

I can remember my mum making pineapple upside down cake when I was little. I’m not sure why I remember this specifically so well, as I’m not sure it was a regular occurrence and it’s not something I’ve had in adulthood or tried to make…

Christmas Cookies

Christmas Cookies

We’ve been so bad at Christmas baking this year. I’ve been creating bits and bobs, but me and Michael haven’t really done a proper fun baking day that he can help with. So, we decided to make some Christmas Cookies. They are basically the same…

Classic Christmas Stollen

Classic Christmas Stollen

I’d never had Stollen until a few years ago. I spent my childhood absolutely convinced that I didn’t like marzipan, what a fool I was! So, Classic Christmas Stollen isn’t something that had ever appealed to me. I don’t hugely like Christmas food either. It’s…

Easy Apple and Cinnamon Blondies

Easy Apple and Cinnamon Blondies

I’m having such an apple phase at the moment. Everything I cook has got apples in it. I just love the flavour; it works so well baked there’s just something about it that screams autumn and festivities. I love it! These Easy Apple and Cinnamon…

Apple and Cinnamon Loaf Cake

I think I might be getting ready to make a circular cake! I heard someone say that loaf cakes were harder the other day, the shape means it’s harder to cook right or something? Seriously, a loaf is the only shape cake I’ve ever got…

3 Ingredient Pineapple Loaf Cake

Ok, that’s a bit of a lie. This one wasn’t 3 ingredients. It was 6. But, only because I didn’t have enough self-raising flour so had to use plain with some baking powder and I added some icing. But, if you just made the cake…
