Carrot Cakes

March 21, 2016

I had fun making these cakes for this month’s Center Parcs blog. I’ve wanted to share these mini carrot cakes with you for a while. It’s a failsafe recipe and they are very moist and moreish, especially with the tangy cream cheese frosting. Instead of my usual standby of making cakes and sticking mini eggs on […]

Pannacotta with Rhubarb

March 17, 2016

I’ve just bought some new season rhubarb. Young and tender and pink as you like. I love these slender, forced Timperley stems. They are so tender and not at all stringy like the rhubarb my Mum used to grow. It makes me think that Spring is really on the way. It’s a real toss-up as […]

Oh my. Have I got a back catalogue building up? Yes…yes I have. I keep developing and jotting down recipes. Testing, eating, altering, trying again. I write them up in draft and just don’t get around to taking a photo and posting them on here. Here’s one to be going on with. As with most […]

Lemon Loaf Cake

Sometimes you just need a no-nonsense cake. One for the weekend, obligingly providing slices of dense, butteriness with every cup of tea. One for when friends are calling in and you want to offer sustenance, but nothing too fussy. One to wrap in foil and take on a camping trip or to stuff into a rucksack for a walk on […]

Can it be true? Can my kitchen finally be finished and I can get on with all the cooking? Seriously, it felt like years to get this far (11 to be precise) First we revelled in the idea of going out for dinner and several takeaways per week, but it’s surprising how quickly the novelty […]
