Spring is finally in the air despite the recent cold snap and lemon drizzle cake seems awfully springlike to me. I’m not really sure why but there is something about its zesty punch that just makes me think of spring. This lemon cake packs an extra lemony tang so if you prefer yours less punchyContinue reading “Lemon Drizzle Cake”

I’m sure a psychologist would have a lot to say about Rocky Road being the recipe of choice post move. I had high hopes of stock piling recipe posts so that I could seamlessly blog away this past month despite the near breakdowns, running out of bubble wrap, learning to disconnect fridge freezers from junctionContinue reading “Rocky Road”
Baked Churros with Chocolate Sauce
I recently found this recipe for baked churros on a blog I follow What Jessica Baked Next and thought it wouldn’t hurt to try a healthier baked rather than fried version of the Spanish classic doughnuts. Although they were quite nice they were not entirely churros like and being hollow, reminded me a lot ofContinue reading “Baked Churros with Chocolate Sauce”
Posting has become sporadic way before I thought it might and despite my best laid plans to stock pile some new entries ahead of my impending move it’s all gone awry. I don’t move well and am even less of a fan of packing/unpacking. This last weekend I could have got a gold medal forContinue reading “Cinnamon Buns”

Baileys Irish Cream Marshmallows
They say ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’, I say when your landlord serves notice on New Years Day, make Baileys Marshmallows! I had intended this to be a post aimed at those wishing to thank Christmas or NYE party hosts for a wonderful gathering in an alternative and ‘light to post’ manner butContinue reading “Baileys Irish Cream Marshmallows”

Parmesan, Chilli and Rosemary Biscuits
Due to poor planning on my part these Parmesan, chilli and rosemary biscuits from Jo Wheatley’s fabulous book Home Baking don’t look like a show stopping Christmas post to end 2014 on but they are certainly very moorish and would make an excellent addition to the Christmas buffet table or as part of a hamper.Continue reading “Parmesan, Chilli and Rosemary Biscuits”
Chocolate & Clementine Mini Christmas Pud Cakes
These Chocolate & Clementine Mini Pud cakes were a big hit on the market stall at this time of year mainly because they look so cute but the also taste great too. Clementine puree makes these chocolate cakes moist and not too sweet.
