The Easiest Coconut & Lime Loaf

March 5, 2016

13

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

May 25, 2015

16

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 […]

Gingerbread

This old fashioned Gingerbread tastes more delicious than the simple recipe has any right to. Sometimes the old ones are the best.

Chocolate Dream Cake

25

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.

Apple Cake

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

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

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?

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Super gloopy, caramel filled chocolate brownies.

Plum Cake {Cheese Cake}

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.

Lily's birthday party where she was pretty in pink.

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?

Triple Orange Drizzle

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

Rhubarb and Custard Cakes

January 14, 2012

33

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

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.'

Baby Shower

August 10, 2011

9

As Deb’s baby is only a few weeks away, yesterday we had an impromptu baby shower type gathering at Housley & Co headquarters. As you can imagine…we weren’t short of a cake or two. The most impressive being the towering pastel confection made by Louise. I love the little flags and ‘shower clouds’ that she made […]

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

13

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. […]
