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...

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...

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...
