Chocolate and Cherry Tiffin

I’d sort of forgotten tiffin existed until recently. I had a friend at school that made gorgeous tiffin for us all and I loved it. Then I left school and somehow didn’t come across it for 10 years. I mean I’m sure it was around and probably on offer in cafes I went to. I… Read More »

The Best Ever Lemon Drizzle Cake

I can’t do cake. I’m not sure why but they just don’t seem to work. I’m good at bread and desserts. I like to think that I’m generally a very good cook. But I cannot make a cake. I’m told it’s perhaps because I’m not careful enough with the measurements and I open the oven… Read More »

Bakewell Flapjack Recipe

But, normal, plain shortbread biscuits, don’t appeal to me. So, what can you do to make them better? More exciting? More flavourful? You can add absolutely loads of sugar! I love… Read More »

Homemade Jammy Dodgers

For years, The Boy has claimed not to like jam. I do not know where he got this from. Then, for some reason, a few weeks ago he had a jammy dodger at school. We now have to buy them every week, and when I asked what he’d like to bake during half term, he… Read More »

Vanilla and Blueberry Cheesecake

We love cheesecake. I’ve never made a “baked” one. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure if I’ve eaten one either, how is It different? I mean I know it’s been baked, but in terms of taste? What happens to it? Why would you bake it? There’s no actual cake involved… Anyway, cheesecake. I’d never… Read More »
