Blueberry Muffins


Today’s recipe is actually a recipe revision from a previous post. Back in 2013, I put together a half muffin/half cupcake recipe with blueberries that I called Blueberry Bursts.

Sunday Baking


A lazy Sunday afternoon bake. Lemon drizzle syrup (from this previous post, here) spooned over a deep sponge (from this previous post, here) with a heavy, smooth, vanilla-flecked buttercream to sandwich the two layers together. No occasion this time – just a quick comfort bake for Rob and I to pair with a vat of tea!

Mini Croissants

I baked miniature croissants with the 2nd half of that laminated dough from my earlier Pain Au Raisin. How cute are they?! After leaving the pre-made dough in the fridge to defrost slowly overnight, it was left out to come to room temp for a few hours in the morning. I then rolled out the dough and […]
