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!)…

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…

Peanut Butter Brownies

The best brownies are fudgy, chocolatey and chewy and I’ve made plenty of brownies using my tried and tested recipe. But now that I’ve developed a recipe to include peanut butter and they are even better! These are my Peanut Butter Brownies! I’ve taken my favourite brownie recipe and adapted it to include peanut butter…

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…

Vegan Chocolate Praline Layer Cake with Peanut Butter Pastry Cream

This week on Bake Off, the tent went all vegan with eggs, milk, butter, honey and meat thrown out of the tent. The signature was to make vegan savoury tartlets with two different fillings, the technical challenge was a tropical fruit pavlova made using aquafaba instead of egg whites and the showstopper was to make…

Peanut Butter Cake with a Chocolate Topping

Peanut butter is always a favourite with its rich smoothness working well with many other flavours. Whenever I make anything with peanut butter, I always like to celebrate both its smooth and crunchy counterpart, adding texture into all my peanut butter bakes. Here I create a smooth chocolate topping for the cake, which complements the…

Giant Ben’s Cookies

You wouldn’t believe that I actually find making cookies, and getting that signature crisp outside and soft and chewy interior, quite daunting as all the recipes I’ve tried in the past have failed miserably with cookies that are too soft or just don’t deliver what they promise. All this changed on a trip to South…

Intensely Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cupcakes

My best friend recently celebrated his 18th birthday and I came up with this recipe for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes. Having read quite a few cookbooks in my time, most peanut butter recipes always seem to end up using 2 jars of peanut butter and whilst it tastes brilliant, it can be quite rich…

Each week she posts a brand new video demonstrating a new cupcake recipe, a new technique or a behind the scenes of the shop. With over 50,000…
