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…

Black Forest Gateau Mini Rolls

Bake Off is back and we’re continuing with the Bake Off Bake Along! Like with most years, we’re kicking off with Cake Week and we saw early standouts Jürgen and Giuseppe with their amazing anti-gravity illusion cakes and unfortunately saw Amanda’s cake topple over in the showstopper! For Cake Week, I’m taking on the Signature…

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…

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…

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes have always been a classic Easter treat popular with kids and adults alike and in time for the Easter weekend, I’m sharing my recipe for making them! With the isolation lockdown quarantine period still going on, I think many of us have found ourselves venturing into the kitchen a bit more and…

Millionaire’s Coconut Ice Shortbread

The fourth showstopper of Bake Off 2019 was to make 36 mishti or Indian milk sweets, 12 each of three different flavours. We saw Steph wow the judges with her pink and pretty mishti and unfortunately we saw Phil disappointed the judges with his ‘A Corner of My Garden’ mishti. I decided to my take…

Rum and Raisin Chocolate Biscuit Bars

The second Signature Challenge of Bake Off 2019 was to make 12 decorated chocolate biscuit bars. We saw many delicious looking creations on the show, my personal favourites were Michelle’s Bakewell Bars, Rosie’s Virgin Mojito Bars and Helena’s Witchy Fingers (mainly because they had matcha!!). I took inspiration from my favourite ice cream flavour, rum…

Rocky Road Squares

Today’s recipe post is in collaboration with The Eve Appeal. This September is Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month and I am partnering with The Eve Appeal on their campaign to ask you to ‘Go Red’!

Trying Hercules Candy’s Peanut Brittle Recipe

I used to do a series on the blog sharing some of my favourite food related YouTube channels before recipe testing and developing. Food channels on YouTube are super common these days but there are always channels to discover that you can get hooked on straight away and Hercules Candy is one of them. I’m…

Baked Chinese New Year Glutinous Rice Cake (焗年糕)

There’s always a new recipe that you find by accident and it fast becomes a staple and that is most certainly the case with my Baked Chinese New Year Glutinous Rice Cake (焗年糕)! Now I know that I’ve missed the Lunar New Year for this year at least but this Baked Glutinous Rice Cake is honestly…

White Chocolate Hemispheres with Truffle Centre

Chocolate shops all over the country will see a boom in sales as some frantically rush around to find a Valentine’s Day gift for their loved ones. I tried making my own chocolates which I think could possibly eclipse many of the chocolates you’ll find on your high street. My White Chocolate Hemispheres have a…

Day 12 of 12: White Chocolate Confetti Popcorn

We’ve arrived at the last of my 12 Days of Christmas and I have a very special recipe for a wonderful sweet treat that uses a very simple ingredient: popcorn! Popcorn has seen something of a revolution in recent years. It’s transitioned from a snack you have at the cinema while watching a movie to a…

Day 11 of 12: Chocolate Slabs and Chocolate Bark

While it’s all good spending money on gifts from the shops, usually the gifts that mean the most are the ones with the most thought behind them and sometimes this means making them by hand, whether that’s wrapping up a shoebox for Secret Santa or making a homemade Christmas card. Edible gifts are always much…

White Chocolate Sprinkle Hearts for Valentine’s Day

I was watching a video of one of my favourite YouTubers where she made Valentine’s Day Chocolates which were ridiculously simple to make. These simple chocolates would make a brilliant Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one or a gift for any occasion and are a great easy way to decorate the top of a…
