Bourbon Biscuit Cupcakes

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!

Pasteis De Nata (Portugese Custard Tarts)

As I’ve probably mentioned before- I love custard! It’s possibly one of my favourite flavours/ingredient in baking. It is far more versatile than people believe it to be as well. From Creme Anglaise (Egg Custard) to the delicate Creme Patissiere, to your Gran’s thick homemade custard for Sunday dessert. You just can’t beat any of them. This week’s bake is Pasteis De Nata, which translated to small Portuguese Custard Tarts which uses egg custard. They’re little bites of joy which no one can turn down…

Pecan Tassie Bars

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!

White Chocolate Cheesecake

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.

Banana and Blueberry Muffins

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!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

So, bad news, my piping bag broke! I was so gutted as I was really determined to nail the icing on these cupcakes. I was just about to start when I found there were holes in the bag. Safe to say it was a little messy with chocolate buttercream squirting out random holes when I was trying to get it out onto the cake. Nonetheless, this weekend was a special occasion- I met the other bridesmaids for my brother’s wedding. It was a lovely afternoon and, as always, when there’s a reason to celebrate I thought I would bring some baked goods.
