Easy Apple Upside Down Cake

Easy Apple Upside Down Cake

I love an upside down cake. I love fruity puddings generally, but an upside down cake is brilliant. You can really taste the fruit, it keeps its juiciness and flavour, the cake is almost an accompaniment to the wonderful cooked fruit. Apple Upside Down Cake […]

What We’re Eating Week 6

What We’re Eating Week 6

There don’t seem to be any normal, standard, routine weeks at the moment. There’s always something going on. This week, we had Jim and Robyn’s birthday. It’s on the same day, 6 weeks before Christmas. It’s an expensive time for me! We normally go out […]

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 […]

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 Benefits of Eating Cake

The Benefits of Eating Cake

Ah, cake. I love cake. I’m a big fan. Occasionally I’ll try to cut back, but it just makes me sad. I’d rather go to the gym a couple of times a week and eat what I want. I’m not super skinny, but I’m healthy […]

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 […]

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 […]

Basic Carrot Loaf Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Basic Carrot Loaf Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

I’d never had carrot cake until a few years ago. I think as a child there’s something quite off-putting about carrots in cake, even though I loved carrots. Cheesecake too I always found to be an odd concept. However, since braving my first carrot cake […]

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 […]
