Bitesize Bakehouse has a new (physical) home! It has been radio silence of late because we have upped and moved from our old house in Cambridge City to a little village a tad further south. It was all very sudden – we found the house much quicker than we had ever expected to, and the […]

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. Since then, I have done a little more fiddling and thought I would share the new (I hope, improved) recipe… Hope you like it! I decided […]

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!

Vanilla and Nutella Panna Cotta

Vanilla and Nutella Panna Cotta

I made Vanilla and Nutella Panna Cotta for our dinner party dessert recently. The inspo came straight off Pinterest. I searched, I copied, we ate. Simple. ♥ It was super quick to put together and, because you can prepare ahead of time, all I had to do was take it out of the fridge and serve it. I […]

Mini Croissants

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 […]
