    Banana Loaf Cake

    I’ll let you into a little secret. I absolutely hate, loathe and despise bananas in every shape and form. Au naturel, mashed, chopped up and sprinkled in a fruit salad, flavouring a banoffi pie, it doesn’t matter. They’re all vile to me! On a level with spiders for other people. So it’s pretty impressive that …

  • The Everyday Brilliance of Rocky Road

    Rcoky Road is one of those deliciously moreish treats which I simply can’t get enough of, even though I probably shouldn’t! It’s also a great way to have a good clear out of the biscuit jar and use up the ones that always get left behind. Now I tend to make this recipe with digestives …

    Best Rich Vegan Chocolate Cake Ever!

    This is hands down the best rich vegan chocolate cake I have ever had the good fortune to make and it. It’d dark, it’s chocolatey and it ticks all the right boxes that turn it from an average cake into a truly decadent dessert. From a cake decorating perspective it also provides a really nice …

    Really what’s not to like about chewy chocolate chip cookies. These beauties closely resemble the ones you might buy from a well-known high street cookie shop.

    Lebkuchen Soft German Biscuits

    I’ve been wanting to make Lebkuchen (pronounced Layb-kutchen apparently) for a long time after I picked up a pack in Lidl’s weird and wonderful middle aisle and was hooked. For me they tick all the boxes – a lovely spicey, gingerbread taste, chocolate accents, a little crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in …

  • Amaretti Biscuits with bottle of Amaretto in the background

    Amaretti Biscuits Recipe

    I love Amaretti biscuits like nothing else, which is strange as I am not a fan of marzipan at all even though these have a vaguely similar taste and texture. However, these biscuits are just to die for and I defy you to only eat one once you make them. They’re lovely soft bits with …

    Courgette and Lime Cake

    I’m big into growing my own vegetables but this past summer growing season has been a bit like the weather here in Blighty, a bit meh. My tomatoes became diseased and failed miserably, my cucumbers didn’t really make it off the starting line and my onions were about the size of a an anorexic golf …
