Apple Cake

March 23, 2014

Like carrot cake, but nicer…and without the carrots.

My New Favourite Brownies

February 28, 2014

35

If I sign up for a brownie, this is the one that I want.

Strawberry Shortcake

September 20, 2013

20

Not a pink 1970's rag doll but a rich, open-weave scone drenched with strawberries and cream.

Blackberry Jam and a Breakfast Cake

September 3, 2013

21

The idea for this cake came to me as I woke up this morning. I leapt out of bed declaring that I wanted some sort of breakfast cake. Is that even a thing?

Every Flavour Puddings

January 5, 2013

25

No bogey flavour ones (these are not Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans): These are my Every Flavour Puddings.

Clementine Madeleines

December 6, 2012

25

These are a nice alternative to a mince pie. They give you that 'chocolate orange vibe' without having to tap-it-and-unwrap-it.

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Super gloopy, caramel filled chocolate brownies.

Plum Cake {Cheese Cake}

September 15, 2012

17

I took one bowlful of Victoria Plums from our little tree and turned them into a tray bake that has allusions of being a cheesecake.

Soft Raspberry Coconut Ice

April 26, 2012

17

This Raspberry Coconut Ice from Dan Lepard tastes good, it's pretty, easy to make and you don't need to cook it. I like that it's kind of retro too.

Triple Orange Drizzle

April 17, 2012

23

A loaf cake flavoured with orange, moistened with orange and golden syrup and drizzled with orange icing.

Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

April 7, 2012

23

The idea of smooshing fresh raspberries into a simple coconut macaroon is inspired. These are delicious: fruity, soft and chewy all at the same time.

It’s all about the cake

March 18, 2012

28

The sun shone yesterday for the annual Spring Fair at George’s School. The children threw sponges, bobbed for apples, bought magic wands and ate cake pops. For the adults tea was served, jewellery was made and spring flowers were on offer. But we all know what the main event is at a school fair. The […]

Rhubarb and Custard Cakes

January 14, 2012

28

The concept of these cakes popped up inside my brain one night whilst I was trying, unsuccessfully, to get to sleep. My best ideas often appear that way. I wanted to use the new season British Timperley Rhubarb that had just appeared in the shops (as suggested by Claire) and it made sense to add […]

Brandy Christmas Pudding Pops

December 9, 2011

16

Have you had enough of cake pops yet? I think I have. But I decided to share these anyway. I know how you like it when baking goes bad. I had good intentions. I decided to make them for a New Years Eve party and I thought I could make good use of a McVities […]

Friendship Cake

August 21, 2011

4

Way back in my teenage years a neighbour passed me a strange bubbling bowl of goo. I was to stir it daily and 'don't forget to feed it.'

Lime Syrup Drizzle Cakes

June 18, 2011

17

I am still learning the importance of a sense of order. I don’t mean having everything in its place, although that really helps. It’s about making sure that I do things in the right sequence. Every time I cook something I work out a better way…or rather I realise I have done something ‘arse about […]

Peach and Almond Cake

May 7, 2011

12

We have built a small raised deck at the end of the garden where a wooden gazebo once stood. I wanted it to be a quiet little place where you could go and sit, away from the house. Somewhere to ponder. So we have planted bamboo around it and an almond blossom tree to give […]

Crazy Frosting

April 3, 2011

19

I’m a bit of a sucker for trying something that sounds like it can’t possibly work. This ‘frosting’ fell into that category as it starts with a cup of milk and 5 tablespoons of flour…being cooked up in a pan. Now, I’ll grant you, that doesn’t feel like the start of one of the dreamiest toppings. […]

Ed’s Birthday Cake

February 17, 2011

20

If I ever ask Ed what cake he wants for his birthday, the answer is a victoria sponge, with buttercream in the middle and icing, sprinkles and a cherry on top. Quite specific really. This year though I had an ulterior motive as I wanted to enter a cake into the #nigellaforever challenge. With a […]
