Sometimes you can’t beat a classic. Throughout all the years I’ve baked I’ve actually never made a classic Victoria Sponge so it was about time I gave it a go. It’s a great recipe if you’re looking for somewhere to start with baking. It’s so easy, simple and made from simple ingredients which won’t build up too much of an expense. It’s also a fantastic addition to a cup of tea or a glass of fizz!
Something I love about the weekend is that it is always a great excuse to have pudding! For me, pudding has to go beyond a slice of cake. Pudding has to be far more- usually incredibly rich and smothered in cream or chocolate. If you’re going to have a treat you’ve got to make it worth your while! One of the only pudding’s me and my other half can agree on is Profiteroles. I think it is one pudding some people would struggle to dislike. Light pastry, filled with freshly whipped cream drenched in chocolate sauce. As I said, you’ve got to make it worth your while…
If there is one thing which stays in my mind when I think back to my favourite baked good as a child, I always think of my Gran’s Brownies. They are the talk of my family, always have been, and always will be. I have always wanted to recreate that same amazing Brownie texture and flavour but have always struggled. This post gives the best ever recipe I have come across with some tips to make the fudgiest Brownies possible! They still don’t compare to my Gran’s but they are still irresistible.
Cheesecake is often a winner all round! That is why it tends to be my ‘go to’ whenever I am baking for a dinner with friends or family. It’s always popular and there is plenty to go round! It is also a great blank canvas too for decoration and you can make it your own! This post contains the recipe for a Mini Egg Cheesecake, perfect for Easter or Easter chocolate leftovers! If it’s not Easter you can easily swap the Mini Eggs out for other chocolate favourites such as m and ms, chocolate buttons, or milky bar.
It’s Easter weekend! The weather is gorgeous and it’s time for a few days to relax with lots of food and drink. As the holiday revolves around chocolate, it would be rude not to bake something gooey and chocolatey. This bake was an idea sent to me by my friend, what better way to catch up than baking a proper treat!
Last weekend I was lucky enough to get to bake for my friend’s Baby Shower! I was feeling a little nervous, especially as I was trying something new and something I had invented in my head a little. Despite this the cakes were a success and I was really happy with how they turned out! I was trying to recreate a Victoria Sponge in a cupcake- a springy vanilla sponge with a raspberry jam centre, topped with a vanilla buttercream. Perfect accompanied with a cup of tea!
Another year has flown past and it’s my Birthday which means a Birthday bake was in order! Since I’ve been on a health kick since the start of the year, I am grabbing any opportunity to bake with both hands. Especially when it isn’t related to wedding cake prep I am trying my best to bake something I’ve never made before. It’s been months since I’ve made cupcakes so wanted to try a new cupcake creation.
