Bitesize Bakehouse Signature Cake: Raspberry and Pistachio Cake


Raspberry and Pistachio Cake

Cream Cheese Brownies


Hey! It’s been a while… I have been buried under wedding prep for the last month or so but I am back now… …and I made brownies. Cream cheese brownies. 🙂 Now, i’m not a normally a massive fan of brownies. They tend to be a bit too heavy and claggy (is that a word?) …

Banana Cake with Walnut Buttercream and Chocolate Ganache

(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).

Chocolate Therapy 

Sometimes, when your day doesn’t go as planned, you just need a refresh. A do-over. A swipe-the-slate-clean moment to bring you back on an even keel for the rest for the day. Baking is my refresh. When I have a day that just doesn’t want to play ball, a couple of hours in the kitchen …
