Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 20.10.2016

Halloween is as good a reason as any to get baking. This is a great time to get extra creative and make something a little different. Like some creepy eyeballs for example. Edible of course! In a previous post I spoke about the deliciousness of cake pops. As well as the fact that they are rather time-consuming to make. A special occasion, like a Halloween party definitely warrants a little extra effort. Kids and adults alike will certainly be staring when they see these creepy treats and the treats will be staring right back at them! In my opinion, no Halloween table would be complete...

Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights, Recipes / 07.10.2016

The sun is shining, the mercury is rising and that can only mean one thing - it's ice cream time! There are so many exciting flavours of ice cream I want to share with you, and admittedly I started with a tricky one because the main ingredient is a little hard to come by. Cookie Butter! If you haven't had the joy of tasting this delight then waste no more time - it's basically life changing. It's a delicious spreadable butter made with Speculaas biscuits (yummy caramelised, spicy Dutch biscuits) that you can have on toast, pancakes, or just by the spoonful. Completely addictive! For this recipe you...

If it's a light and fresh dessert you're after, you've come to the right place. This deliciously lemony cheesecake makes a great ending to a heavy meal. The tartness of the lemon curd cuts through the richness of the creamy cheesecake leaving you wanting more with every bite! If that hasn't got your mouth watering then imagine the addition of a scrumptiously crunchy ginger biscuit crust. The result is the perfect combo of citrus and spice! This cheesecake is really simple to make but needs to be prepared a few hours in advance. Or save yourself some time and make it the day...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 15.09.2016

Some people love peanut butter, some people hate it. I fall into the love category, my hubby - the hate. This means I don't make peanut butter flavoured goodies all that often. So when I do, I don't hold back on the peanut butter. These yummy peanut butter bars are made with a whole jar of the stuff! That's right, an entire jar. Apart from that, there are just a few ingredients, and the recipe is so quick and easy your kids could probably make them! For those of you who have ever tried a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, you'll know that peanut butter and chocolate...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 07.09.2016

You may remember the Cake Pop craze which dominated the baking world a few years ago. I'm not ashamed to admit I jumped on that bandwagon with great enthusiasm. Bakerella, the inventor of the Cake Pop, remains one of my food heroes to this day. A Cake Pop is a mixture of cake crumbs and icing, rolled into balls, placed on a stick like a lollipop and dipped in chocolate. They are moist, delicious and a real delight to look at. I will say this though, they are rather a lot of work to make. For this reason, they are great for a...

Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 31.08.2016

I first tasted Banoffee Pie many years ago. My sister's friend was visiting from England and she offered to make us a British dessert one evening. Her Banoffee Pie was an absolute hit and her recipe has been used by my family many (hundred) times since then. The name "Banoffee" comes from the combination of the words "banana" and "toffee" although the filling is really more of a caramel than a toffee. Before Caramel Treat was invented we would boil a tin of condensed milk  for several hours to make the caramel, but happily now it's as simple as opening up a tin! Banoffee Pie...

Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 26.08.2016

My husband and I have recently relocated, and are temporarily staying at an Airbnb until we can move into our new home.  As soon as we arrived at the Airbnb I scouted out the kitchen. Sadly it was not very well equipped - no mixer, no scale, no baking trays, not even a mixing bowl to be found! My fingers were twitching to get baking though, so I racked my brain for a simple recipe that requires next to no equipment to make. I came up with this old favourite of mine, a super quick and easy recipe that delivers extremely...

Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 17.08.2016

A crunchy shortbread crust, a zesty lemon layer topped with a light, fluffy 'meringue'. Nope its not Lemon Meringue Pie. Its Fudge. A beautiful combination of all the delicious flavours you would expect from a Lemon Meringue Pie, concentrated into an adorably cute slice of fudge. This is what is known as a dessert mash-up. Two classic desserts merged into one! I'll be honest with you, this is not TRUE fudge. True fudge is made with butter, sugar and cream - all boiled together and then beaten to a thick mixture. This is kind of a cheat's version, using condensed milk and white chocolate. The...

Muffins & Buns, Recipes / 11.08.2016

Bananas. As much as I like them, I always seem to have a few over-ripe ones lying in the fruit bowl. Why? Because the whole bunch ripens at exactly the same time and no matter how much you like banana's, five in one day is too many.  Since I hate wasting food, my solution is to transform them into a delicious batch of banana muffins. Not just any muffins though. These ones have a sweet and crunchy brown sugar crumble topping that transforms them from boring to blissful! These muffins are best served the day you make them, preferably warm from the oven with a generous smudge of...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 04.08.2016

Pound cakes date back hundreds of years and were baked by our grandmothers and their grandmothers too. Traditionally a pound cake consists of a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of eggs and a pound of flour, hence the name. How easy is that! Even the most inexperienced baker can remember the recipe by heart, and bake a delicious pound cake at a moment's notice. These days most so-called pound cakes have been adapted so much they barely resemble a pound cake at all. Whilst I have no problem adapting a recipe to improve it, I quite like the...
