Oat & Almond Crumble Cookies

I usually just make half a batch of these oat and almond biscuits. A full plateful would be too tempting, but don't let me stop you.

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

With each coffee choc chip spirals you get a hit of smooth coffee flavour, the toothsome bite of fresh baked dough plus a sweet sticky mess of icing that gets all over your fingers. Espresso Rolls : Perfect for elevenses.

We do like a fruity loaf. I made up this recipe on the hoof but it worked out just right for Sunday breakfast.

Make it Flaky

May 8, 2012

12

I am not sharing this because it’s healthy. I am not sharing this because it’s pretty. It’s not even a clever or complicated dish. In fact…you could say that it’s just a big sausage roll. Point taken. I wanted to show you a quick flaky pastry recipe that I think is easier to make than […]

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

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 […]

See my bagels

February 2, 2012

35

Although there is generally a lot of baking on Things{we}make I am lucky that it is a joint venture and that Ed understands my need to show you my bagels. I like that he knows how to make a good-looking filling of pastrami, pea shoots and horseradish. It is most important that he will fill […]

Serendipity Rolls

January 21, 2012

14

These rolls were a surprise success. So much so that I have made them three times already. The dough includes cottage cheese, but it does not make them cheesy at all, it just seems to give a soft, smooth lightness and a good flavour. Today’s version was brushed with egg, sprinkled with golden linseed and […]

Cornflake Cookies

December 3, 2011

15

When I want to bake something I sometimes ask Ed and George what they fancy. Often Ed will say “Can you make cornflake biscuits like we used to have at school? They had cornflakes mixed into them and a cherry on top. I liked them.” I vaguely browse around the internet and can’t find a recipe […]

Bun Round Up

October 29, 2011

20

Over the last month members of ‘Fresh From The Oven‘ have been baking my Cinnamon Bun recipe. The FFTO site now shows all the entrants here but I wanted to show you my pick of the bunch. I am delighted that so many people put their own slant on the recipe. After all that’s how recipes are developed […]
