Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

I’m a bit fussy with rhubarb. I always think that I like it. When it appears in the shops I get all excited. Perhaps just because it means that the warmer weather has arrived, and I love that! Then, I find it a little tart […]

Super Simple Salmon Fishcakes with Dill Sauce

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

I’m calling this an Earl Grey Fruit Loaf because it’s got Earl Grey and fruit in it, and its loaf shaped. There’s also no butter or fat, so it doesn’t seem to be a cake as such. You could call it a tea cake though […]

Coffee Loaf Cake

Coffee Loaf Cake

I love coffee. But, I do not like coffee flavoured things. That coffee Quality Street is the worst thing in the world. Coffee flavour things I find generally don’t taste like actual coffee. Much like banana flavour things don’t taste like bananas. Unless you make […]

Cherry and Dark Chocolate Flapjacks

Cherry and Dark Chocolate Flapjacks

Flapjacks are good, aren’t they? Especially when the oats are really soft and chewy. I like to use plenty of butter so that you get a soft and sweet oaty flapjack. I’m not as keen when they’re a bit drier and more biscuit like. I […]

Healthy Beef Curry

Healthy Beef Curry

About a year ago, I made a curry from scratch for the first time. I’d always been hugely intimidated by all of the spices and flavours before then. Since that first one, I’ve made many many different curries, many different times. I very much doubt […]

Mini Bailey’s Cheesecakes

Mini Bailey’s Cheesecakes

I love Bailey’s. But, firstly, I must apologise to the actual Bailey’s people. I don’t buy Bailey’s. I used to. Then I tried the Aldi version, Ballycastle. It tastes exactly the same and costs £3.75! Really! That makes it perfect for baking things like my […]

Double Decker Rocky Road

Double Decker Rocky Road

Double Decker Rocky Road is a combination of two of my favourite things on earth. Well, of one of them, and a smaller version of the other one. Rocky Road is beautiful. It’s basically chocolate biscuits with extras thrown in. The best thing about it […]

Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic Soup

Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic Soup

Homemade soup is one of my favourite things. Even more so if it comes with a chunky loaf of homemade bread. Which it always does in our house. Soup is such as easy way to put flavours together and try new combinations. If it works, […]

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Bailey’s Loaf Cake sounds good, but it’s not Bailey’s. It’s the Aldi Version which is like £3 and tastes exactly the same. It’s what I use in all of my Bailey’s bakes. It’s just good sense! As a side note, Aldi gin is also incredible! […]
