Brandy Snaps with Cannoli Cream

Week 2 of Bake Off saw biscuits take over the tent with the bakers doing signature brandy snaps, technically challenging jam sandwich biscuits (which are absolutely NOT called Jammie Dodgers) and showstopping biscuit toys! It’s been a while since I’ve made brandy snaps, the last time was probably the time I went to An Extra…

Andrew’s Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are a classic bake and it’s so important to have a set of staple recipes that are super reliable and dependable. And I cannot wait to add my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies to my list of those recipes! I used this chocolate chip cookie for a summer school cooking class and the kids found…

Andrew’s Chocolate Orange Flaky Scones

Scones were one of the first things I learned to bake at school and they’ve continued to be one of the recipes I enjoy the most. With scones, there tends to be little variation on how to make scones, barring savoury vs sweet and changing up the fillings but after watching a Cooking Tree video…

Andrew’s Perfect Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

The perfect oatmeal and raisin cookie has often been a recipe that has alluded me in the past. Very often, the cookies wouldn’t be soft and chewy, instead more thick and cakey. I decided to adapt one of my previous cookie recipes and found that it gave me the perfect cookie that I wanted and…

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s been over a year since the lockdown was announced in the UK and I remember last year that finding flour and eggs in the supermarkets was one of the hardest things and I was baking with much less flour and using fewer eggs. One of my Patrons shared with me this recipe for 3-ingredient…

Snickers Doodles (Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles)

Andrew… you’ve spelt the word snickerdoodle wrong, what are you doing! No this recipe is absolutely called Snickers Doodles, it’s my own name for Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles! Unfortunately my Snickers Doodles don’t contain as much of the chocolatey nougatty goodness as a Snickers bar (although that might be something to experiment with in the future!)…

Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Irish Cream Fudge Cookies

It’s all about cookies when the festive season rolls around and a batch of delicious homemade cookies, soft in the centre with a crisp edge and packed full of chocolate chunks, what could be better! Well, these super delicious but incredibly simple Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Irish Cream Fudge Cookies, a modified version of an Anna…

Bounty Coconut Macarons

Week 10 of Bake Off saw the final three bakers being tested on multiple baking disciplines: the bakers had to tackle puff pastry in the signature custard slice, tackle biscuits in the walnut whirl technical challenge and tackle cakes, pastry, biscuits in the final showstopping dessert tower challenge. The theme of the dessert tower challenge…

Mini Apple Crumble Baked Cheesecakes

Week 8 saw the Quarter-Finals of Bake Off and the bakers took on a whole manner of different desserts! The bakers got steamy with the Sussex Pond Pudding technical, arty with the jelly art design cake showstopper and cheesy with the baked mini cheesecake signature challenge. Not wanting to invest time into learning the art…

Florentine Biscuit Bars

We’re back for the Bake Off Bake Along! The first week was Cake Week and I baked my Chocolate Hazelnut Battenberg Cake before the series began and somehow I managed to predict the challenge before the series started so we’re starting with Biscuit Week! We saw Lottie got the first Hollywood Handshake of the series…

Almond Thumbprint Cookies

As we head into the autumn months, two things are inevitable: firstly, it’s getting colder and the days are getting shorter but secondly, The Great British Bake Off is back. And what better way to make the most of both of these occasions that getting into the kitchen for a spot of baking! I think…

Matcha White Chocolate Stuffed Cookies

Matcha and white chocolate go together so perfectly and they work incredibly well together in my stuffed cookie recipe! I adapted my Peanut Butter White Chocolate Stuffed Cookies recipe which was inspired by one of my most popular recipes on the blog, Giant Ben’s Cookies, to be flavoured with matcha and they are utter perfection!!…

Peanut Butter White Chocolate Stuffed Cookies

One of the most popular recipes on my blog has been my adaptation of the Ben’s Cookies recipe. That was from nearly 5 years ago and I had an email from someone saying they tried and really loved the peanut butter and white chocolate version of the recipe and I thought it would be a…

Hokkaido Milk Cookies (北海道牛奶曲奇)

If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories then you would know that recently I have becomed obsessed with Korean dessert cafe vlogs. One particular channel produces these amazing looking cookie boxes which are all freshly baked and packed. This made me itching to get into the kitchen myself and make my own…

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I’ve been snacking a lot since the quarantine/isolation period began and the amount of biscuits I can make my way through is genuinely incredible. I was thinking about some healthier snacks to make – and unfortunately crisps are not the answer – and after a chat with a friend, granola bars were the answer! I…
