Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Husband often steals my recipes at work. He’ll Come home and tell me that he’s made my Lemon Drizzle Cakes, or super-sized my bourbon cream recipe (amazing btw!). He’s also been making some of my muffins. Now and then, the tables turn, and he tells […]

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

I really massively need to branch out a little bit and start making circle cakes. The sponge bit must be similar, and there are all sorts of fantastic filling options. But, loaf cakes are just so simple. They cook really well, you can add almost […]

KitKat Rocky Road

KitKat Rocky Road

I’ve wanted to make KitKat Rocky Road for a while. KitKats are my weakness. I love them. Especially a KitKat Chunky with a cup of tea. There’s nothing better; I could have one a day. I’m not a huge fan of all of the funny […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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! […]
