Oat & Almond Crumble Cookies

January 30, 2013

24

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.

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

26

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.

Brendan’s Normandy Apple Tart

October 29, 2012

13

I spent Friday at the Seasoned Cookery School on a 'Brilliant Bakes' course hosted by Brendan, finalist in 2012's Great British Bake Off. The day started off very well with a slab of Brendan's homemade granola slice and a cup of tea.

Chocolate Cheesecakes

I know that all you want to do really is look at pictures of chocolate cheesecake. I aim to please.

Plum Cake {Cheese Cake}

September 15, 2012

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.

Apple and Salted Caramel Focaccia

September 5, 2012

18

It's focaccia, but not as we know it.

Marshmallow Pavlova Cake

August 5, 2012

34

It's kind of marshmallow, doing an impression of a meringue, made into a fruity pavlova-style cake. You get me?

Honeyed Apricot Tarts

Lil' honey glazed apricot tarts. You can eat these in one mouthful. That's one of your five-a-day right there.

Espresso buns

May 29, 2012

23

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.

Fruity Breakfast Loaf

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

Espresso Panna Cotta

May 22, 2012

16

I am really very pleased with this recipe; I think it worked out rather well. Creamy and wobbly and rich with coffee flavours.

Caramel Apple Cloud Pancake

May 18, 2012

20

Oh really...more oven baked pancakes? I know, I know, but this one is another winner. I promise. It's a good way to turn a crisp green apple into a decadent dessert for two or a greedy breakfast for one. What's not to like?

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

27

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

Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

April 7, 2012

26

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 […]

If you read My First Ice Cream post you will know that I was not completely happy with my results from the “Best ever chocolate ice cream” recipe by Cenk Cafe Fernando. Several people who made it ended up with […]
