Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

chocolate cinnamon babka

I must start this post with a thank you. A MASSIVE thank you in fact to The Gentleman Baker who put me onto this bread bake. Before him, I had never actually heard of Babka before. I had spied his incredibly mouth watering photo of a ‘just baked’ Babka on Instagram and had to find …

Cinnamon Blueberry Bakes

Blueberry Muffin Traybake

A week of treats for the office meant I needed some new recipes, and fast. These recipes were found on brand new blog (to me!). They worked out just perfectly for a first attempt and I didn’t fiddle with the originals at all. These little Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins from Averie cooks were so cute. They …

They have a stronger bake structure, but without the heaviness that you sometimes find with muffins. We mostly served them warm, with ice-cream on the side. …

Cinnamon Banana Bread

After quite a few hectic days of cocktails and eating out in London, I was craving something warm, cosy and home cooked. I have had quite a lot of evening events with work as well, so eating a ‘proper’ dinner at home has been, and will be, non-existent for the next few days. To combat …
