Marbled Malteser Muffins (version 2.0)

This morning, I got up (relatively) early to bake. This first thing that popped into my head for a quick bake was Marbled Malteser Muffins. I have blogged about them before (here) and know I can knock out a batch it under 30mins. Only problem was I didn’t have all the ingredients. Panic not, my …

Snickerdoodles from Santa

I follow a lot of blogs who are based in and around America that post such delicious and inspiring recipes but I am was constantly confronted with conversion difficulties- all those different ingredients and multiple webpages telling you different things.

Une petite bouchée d’amour

Today, I noticed my Madeleine tray has been sorely neglected of late. She was looking all lonely and blue at being left out for so long. I have been passing her by each week, whilst I ponder on what to bake, ignoring her calls. Being one of those eternal people pleasers (Ha! I wish. A …

Raspberry and Pine Nut Bars

I am forever running out of the door in the mornings, desperately trying to catch my bus to work after lying in later than I should have. I have a terrible case of missing will power, and that extra few minutes in bed always seems so enticing… but it does inevitably lead to me missing …

This Sunday, as the rain hammered down and the skies remained overcast and grey all day long, I decided to scuttle …

White Chocolate and Cherry Cookies

White Chocolate and Cherry cookies are quick and easy, perfect for sharing, and almost impossible to get wrong. This bake started out life as a Hummingbird Bakery recipe, which uses dried cranberries instead of cherry, slightly less cinnamon and half soft brown sugar. True to form though, I have sweetened the original in an attempt …

Deliciously indulgent Banana and Chocolate soul food at its finest. I got the inspiration for this weeks baking creation, and the core recipe from one of the blogs I follow on a regular basis, The Londoner. You can find the original recipe for Rosie’s banana and Nutella swirl muffins here which are truly delicious and …

Cream Tea, Anyone?

My trusty scone recipe started out life on the BBC GoodFood website. Over the years though, it’s had a few tweaks here and there. This recipe will produce 12 good-sized (and by good-sized I mean LARGE) scones. 360g Self Raising flour 1/2 teaspoon of Salt 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder 95g Butter, cold 3 tablespoons …
