‘Millie’s Cookies’ Recipe

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…

Cheese Twists

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!

Surprise Easter Chocolate Loaf

Happy Easter! Apologies, the title is a little bit of a mouthful, but it will all make sense a little later on. Easter is yet another great time of year for food and for experimenting with food. The day/bank holiday as a whole makes a great excuse to chill out, eat loads of yummy food, have a few drinks and see the family. This is my favourite combination of things, so, to mark the occasion this weeks bake is a chocolate cake, but with a little-hidden surprise!

Creme Egg Rocky Road

It may seem a little early for Easter but I assure you it will be here before you know it. Also, there’s never any harm in being organised! It’s also Mother’s Day this weekend so if you’re looking for a last minute treat then this is also ideal. If that’s not enough to convince you then just think, cream eggs will be back off the shelves in 3 weeks! This technically isn’t a bake, there is no flour, no eggs, so it’s very easy and very stress-free! Continue reading “Creme Egg Rocky Road”

90 Calorie Chocolate Popcorn Bars

This post is a tad late this week as I was away skiing in Austria all of last week! The scenery was beautiful and I eventually learned to ski! Me and my boyfriend love German food and as we were was on the border there was plenty of it, as well as plenty of beer. So back to reality….and back to trying to eat well (uh oh!). I have a major sweet tooth so found this recipe which can help to resolve my cravings without indulging too much! This recipe is a quick fix and super easy to make!

Valentines Oreo Brownies

Okay so it isn’t quite Valentines yet but I like to plan in advance. I’m also away before and during Valentines so thought I would do a special post this week. I decided to adapt oreo brownies for the Valentines bake as it is possibly one of the only things I have baked and seen my boyfriend eat. (love you really) It wouldn’t make much sense if I made something he didn’t like. They’re honestly to die for! If you love chocolate or brownies, they’re amazing! They look pretty cool as well with the Oreos going through the middle and on the top.

My Gran’s Bakewell Tart

My first pie on the blog, as well as the first pastry recipe. As I have mentioned in other posts my Gran baked some of the best cakes and pies. Every Monday there would be a pudding ready and waiting for after dinner. From the gooiest brownies to the yummiest steam sponge pudding I have ever had. This week, however, I wanted to do her Bakewell Tart. A favourite of mine which had a delicious nutty flavour with raspberry jam through the middle. This often would always be fresh out the oven as well with some cream to finish it off- delicious.
