There is nothing more I love than to spend a day in the Bitesize Bakehouse kitchen experimenting with different flavours. So, I thought I had struck my very own pot of gold when I made the decision to pull together a series of signature bakes for the blog (dreaming of GBBO. Ha). Recipe testing is my …

Hazelnut and Vanilla Mocha Bundt

Hazlenut_Vanilla_Mocha_Bundt

I have a renewed love of the Bundt tin this week (read: I found a new tin for a steal at Aldi whilst picking up my weekly shop). It just makes your bakes look so good, doesn’t it? Right from the off. You can just leave the cake as it is. No fancy frostings required. PS. …

Because I don’t need much of an excuse to bake a cake… Rob’s work had just moved office so I decided to bake them a “happy new office cake”. Obviously. This bake was actually from a little while ago. If you follow me on Instagram (take a peak here) you will have seen me post this …

Banana Cake with Walnut Buttercream and Chocolate Ganache

banana cake with walnut buttercream

(Sorry in advance for these photos. I mean, they aren’t normally “top notch” on Bitesize Bakes –i’m still learning– but I fear these are particularly bad so bear with me…) Our “5 month ’til the wedding” cake was a Banana cake (Again! see my other recent Banana Cake here). This time though, I made it much …
