A few Sticky Buns

May 22, 2016

Morning all. Ed is on his Sunday morning walk in the woods with Ernie and George is having his first lie in for weeks so I’ve just got time to share my sticky buns with you. There are many, many more buns to be found on thingswemake but I like this recipe as it’s not […]

Pannacotta with Rhubarb

The Easiest Coconut & Lime Loaf

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 […]

Apple Turnovers

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d break us in gently with a nice, simple turnover. We’ve been through a lot you and I. We’ve made good things and bad things, sown stuff and grown stuff, been places and filled our faces. I feel sad that I’ve not been sharing, but there are times […]

Choose life: Choose a big meringuey pudding that takes up a whole shelf in the fridge and a weeks worth of calories in your belly.

Simple Bread and Butter Pudding

I toyed with adding any number of random things to sex up this recipe, but this is how I remember it, so this is how it stays.

New Year’s Day Pancakes

My New Year's resolution is to worry less about things being 'just so'. This may mean you see a few more posts like this; Just things we do every day, not fussy or clever…just the things we make.

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

Blackberry Jam and a Breakfast Cake

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?

The Aga Tarts

You know how this works by now: I tell you a meandering tale by way of recipe foreplay then insert a money shot to keep your interest. Today though…because my final images are being saved for the Autumn edition of Aga Living Magazine you will have to make do with one of my ‘practice tarts’ […]

We never made it to the funnel cake stand, so we made our own.
