With another Lockdown what better way to kill time than baking? Now Halloween has passed it makes for an even better excuse to crack on with some Christmas baking. For those who think it’s too early…it’s never too early!! I wanted to bake something Chris would eat as well and the only thing I could think of was Cookies. The thought of this bored me a little as I’ve made the so many times for him so I got on Pinterest for some inspo. Lo and Behold- the Christmas Pudding Chocolate Cookie!!Continue reading “Christmas Pudding Chocolate Cookies”
Recently it feels like Chocolate Orange is becoming the craze. All sorts of brands are adding the flavour into their chocolates and to be honest, I am alllll for it! All I was craving/ really wanted to try was the Cadbury Buttons thta were recently released. I have been struggling to find them so instead I thought I’d make some Chocolate Orange basked goods instead. These biscuits hit the spot and were my favourite treat to have with my morning coffee for a good week. The recipe is easy to follow, just give yourself 2 days to complete the process (it’s not as bad as it sounds)Continue reading “Chocolate Orange Biscuits”
One thing which has taken a hit during the Covid-19 pandemic is flour. I don’t know about you but I am finding it impossible to find ANY flour in the shops. I’ve tried every single week and there seems to be no sign of it returning.
This is not only a result of us all using baking to occupy our time now, but also the flour suppliers main customer is usually big bakeries, not the small every day consumer. The flour mills are struggling to keep up with the demand of producing smaller bags of the flour- the flour is there but the capacity for packing the smaller bags is not!
But there is a way around this if you’re desperate to bake or find something to do! These flour-less cookies are honestly sooo good and I think I’d say I’d prefer them over normal ones. They’re super fudgy, light, and easy to make. (These can also be gluten free!)
Biscuits are probably my least favourite thing to bake, however, if I had to choose my favourite sweet treat Millionaire Shortbread is definitely up there. When I attempted making this baked good when I was younger it was often unsuccessful. The caramel would be pouring out the sides and not set properly and the shortbread would either be too hard or too crumbly etc. However, I decided to give it another a go and it came out soo much better than I thought it would! Read on to get the recipe and full proof tips to a successful Millionaire Shortbread.
