Cherry and Almond Cake

This cherry and almond cake is another one from my  River Cottage Handbook No 8 – Cakes. The original recipe had a streusel topping but I didn’t have enough ground almonds so just sprinkled flaked almonds over the top which happened to visually look better  than the original recipe as the cherries aren’t hidden. IContinue reading “Cherry and Almond Cake”

Vanilla Celebration Cake

The last weekend of July marked my Granma’s 80th birthday so a few weeks ago I set about making a gardening themed cake that could hopefully withstand travelling 310 miles to Cornwall in two trains, a plane and a car. I hadn’t intended to blog this birthday cake but took some pictures before it madeContinue reading “Vanilla Celebration Cake”

Toasted Almond Madeira Cake

After the disaster that befell the UK on Friday, there was nothing else to do but bake. I had been meaning to try out this Dan Lepard recipe for toasted almond madeira cake for a while and the end of last week seemed like the right time to give what seemed a very comforting andContinue reading “Toasted Almond Madeira Cake”

Mini Egg Cake

Later than planned I have managed to write up this Mini Egg Cake on the train(s) to Gatwick (thanks to holiday engineering work it’s taking 3 hrs just to get to the airport). I’m heading home to Cornwall for Easter and made this chocolate and vanilla cake for my neighbours as a thank you forContinue reading “Mini Egg Cake”

Victoria Sandwich

I have a new oven… That cooks things…..in the time it’s supposed to! So to celebrate and test out said new oven I thought I’d christen it with a classic Victoria sponge sandwich. I can report it had a nice even bake and no noticeable hot spots. For the last few weeks I have beenContinue reading “Victoria Sandwich”

Bounty Bar Cake

Last weekend I was feeling a need for dense chocolate cake and an even greater need not to have to get dressed and buy ingredients or spend ages baking so I remembered this super easy Bounty Bar Cake from the River Cottage Handbook No 8 – Cakes by Pam Corbin. Aside from having the patience andContinue reading “Bounty Bar Cake”

Walnut & Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping

So I’m back and mostly unpacked. I could say this amazing cake from Roger Saul’s Spelt cookbook is a seasonal cake arrived just in time for the walnut harvest but sadly I wasn’t that thoughtful. I made and shot this cake a month ago to christen my new kitchen and test out the inherited gasContinue reading “Walnut & Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping”

Dairy Free Chocolate Layer Cake

Our houseguest is off backpacking round Europe from Wednesday so I decided to bake her a dairy free chocolate cake this weekend to bid her bon voyage. I used my go to chocolate cake recipe but swapped the milk for goats milk as Amber is just cows milk intollerant but soy or nut milk canContinue reading “Dairy Free Chocolate Layer Cake”

Nectarine & Almond Friands

I feel bad posting these nectarine and almond friands as we have a dairy intolerant houseguest at the moment and she is really struggling to have the willpower to resist. These friands are so light and buttery and looked amazing as I was flicking through an old issue of Waitrose Weekend before relegating it toContinue reading “Nectarine & Almond Friands”

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Apologies for the lack of posts so far this year, my mum has been extremely unwell since Christmas and I’m not sure when I will be posting regularly again as I am still in Cornwall. To tide you all over until normal service is resumed, here is the Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe I was savingContinue reading “Sticky Toffee Pudding”

Cooking Sustainably

Cooking sustainably is making a choice to cook in a low impact way, a simple way, with low waste and low energy. There are many interpretations of sustainable food, and here I only focus on ways that we as individuals can make a difference with our choices.
