Easter Chocolate Granola Cakes

Feeling the urge to do something Eastery with a packet of chocolate mini eggs I had, I pondered upon what I should do with them. The old faithful cupcake sprang to mind but aware of the abundance of recipes for egg adorned Easter cupcakes I wanted to do something a bit different. Then the classic …

Blueberry, Banana and White Chocolate Muffins

In honour of Mother’s Day I thought I would bake these muffins which having had a road test in our house, went down very well (even with a certain person who says they don’t like blueberries like them). I always think if you can put fruit like bananas and blueberries in cake then you don’t …

Slow Cooker Double Chocolate Speculoos Puddle Pudding

Chocolate Chip Marmalade Cakes

When a little bird told me that it was National Marmalade Week this week (1 – 8 March) I immediately thought of my grandmothers Marmalade Cakes. As a child the cake stand would always come out when we visited and often there would be home made Marmalade and Butterfly Cakes on it. I know I …

Chocolate & Pistachio Mousse

I don’t know about you but I want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible at Christmas. The two main reasons are because I want to spend quality time with my family and friends and the other is because I’m usually flagging by Christmas day. With this in mind I gave an …

Chocolate and Pistachio Wreath

Being a food blogger isn’t something I can ever fully switch off from. So when I found myself sitting in a hospital waiting room the other day, I made a bee line for the only food supplement in amongst the magazines. I wish I could tell you which one it was but maybe you can …

Neapolitan Marzipan Chocolates

I came up with these chocolates after being inspired by a story from my mother’s childhood. I think homemade edible gifts are the most thoughtful ones to give and receive at Christmas. Spending quality time with your children making treats is what Christmas is all about to me. Better still you can make something that …

Specunana Chocolate Brownies

Speculoos, Banana, Dark Chocolate, white chocolate Brownies

A while ago I bought some Lotus Biscuit Spread which on the continent is known as Speculoos. I’d seen much hype about this product on twitter so my curiosity got the better of me and I bought some. We’re big fans of Lotus Biscuits in this house. I have many fond memories of trips to …
