Finally, January is over! Like most people, I jumped on the health bandwagon after eating my bodyweight over Christmas. Unfortunately, that did mean putting a pause on my hobby and blog for a while whilst I threw myself into healthy eating. But, you’ve got to treat yourself sometimes! What better way to kick start the year than with chocolate! In keeping with the wellbeing theme too, these Chocolate Mousse pots are still reasonable in terms of calories and sugar- it’s a win, win! Perfect for a weekend treat or Valentines!
As always Christmas day requires an alternative dessert to Christmas Pudding. It’s not for everyone and it’s always nice to have a choice of pudding, especially when it involves chocolate! This Mousse cake is light but delicious chocolate dessert cake which can be easily decorated to suit any occasion, not just Christmas!
Recently I’ve really enjoyed making cupcakes and with little to do this weekend, I thought I’d bake again. I’ve always wanted to give biscuit themed cupcakes a go. I always think they look aesthetically god every time! I chose Bourbon biscuit as I have a full proof chocolate cupcakes recipe and I know my team at work love a Bourbon!
This week I have finally fulfilled a promise I made to my friend’s other half when I first started this blog…which must be just over a year ago now! The request was a Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake, and let’s be honest, it’s a pretty good request to make. So, I finally got to it and made the cheesecake, it’s surprisingly easy yet still looks the business! Read on for the recipe!
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…
This week’s bake is a little fiddly but 100% worth the effort. I tried and tested the recipe out at work and it is safe to say the cakes were well received and the reviews were even better! Be prepared to get sticky, have cake and caramel everywhere, but finish your baking with a deliciously rich, caramel filled cupcakes no one could turn down.
With the British summertime surprising us all this year with the glorious weather. BBQs have been part of the weekend for nearly everyone I know. It’s a great excuse to get people round and eat your body weight in food, and an even better excuse to make a dessert. This White Chocolate Cheesecake is a big winner and has the best mix of a creamy, rich, chocolatey dessert with the addition of sweet summer berries.
