Day by day I am feeling more and more Autumnal. Days are feeling shorter and leaves will soon be falling. If I’m honest, I am a little excited from a cooking/baking point of view for the change in the seasons. I find it a lot easier to get inspiration for baking when the weather isn’t scorching hot. As we have seen in Bake Off this year as well, it makes baking a lot easier when the weather is cooler. Either way, I am excited to share some winter warmers with you. For now, this week’s delicious bake is a moist, chocolatey cookie, with chunks of Malteaser and white chocolate chips thrown in for good measure…
If you haven’t manage to guess already from previous bakes, I love using pecans in baking. This week is yet another delicious treat packed full of pecans with a gooey, sweet filling and biscuity type base. These are hands down one of my favourite bakes to date. I’ve had to hold back on scoffing them down all weekend! If I could recommend anyone to give any of my recipes ago, this is definitely one!
This must be my first post in about a month! Unfortunately, I have been traveling pretty much every week for work for the past couple of months, which means any free time I do have I need to sort my life out, catch up with Chris or sleep. But finally, this weekend I felt I had time to do what I love best- bake!
Chocolate Fondants are irresistible chocolate puddings with melted molten chocolate in the middle which are usually drizzled with a bit of cream or some ice cream. Most restaurants tend to have them on their dessert menu and Guu makes a delicious version of them too. Nonetheless, making them from scratch at home is far more satisfying and in fact cheaper. They taste even better than ones you buy and have the added value of knowing you made them yourself.
These weeks bake is one for those who are trying to balance eating well whilst still treating yourself to something yum. These muffins are full of flavour but still only have 200 calories in them each and are low in fat. A little naughty treat without feeling too much of a guilt. I don’t know about anyone else but that is exactly what I needed!
Nothing beats a soft, gooey, cookie. Whether it’s Millie’s Cookie or not they are one o my favourite things to have with a cup of tea. When you get it right at home, they’re seriously good as well. The recipe is so easy as well, and all in one bowl (this is for the ones who hate washing up!) For me it’s always got to be white chocolate cookies…
Easter is over and there is a mountain of chocolate next to me and smaller mountains scattered around the house. After a bank holiday filled with stuffing my face with chocolate and cake, it’s safe to say, enough is enough. Only joking, I could never be put off my love for chocolate but it seemed pretty pointless this week to bake a cake and make the calories pile on even more. So this post is my first savoury bake of the blog!
