Biscuits are probably my least favourite thing to bake, however, if I had to choose my favourite sweet treat Millionaire Shortbread is definitely up there. When I attempted making this baked good when I was younger it was often unsuccessful. The caramel would be pouring out the sides and not set properly and the shortbread would either be too hard or too crumbly etc. However, I decided to give it another a go and it came out soo much better than I thought it would! Read on to get the recipe and full proof tips to a successful Millionaire Shortbread.
Finally, the worst month of the year is over. One thing I always find mind boggling with January is the fact we all try and give up the things which makes us happy; certain foods, alcohol etc etc on one of the most depressing months of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all these things are to try benefit our health, but it does make the first month of the year incredibly long. Anyway, to mark the occasion of things going onwards and upwards from January I decided to get my bake back on. It’s been a long time but I came across Biscoff Cupcakes and couldnt resist getting stuck back in.
The clocks have turned back and Halloween is in a couple days! I guess it’s safe to say we are on our way into the winter season. Halloween isn’t something we really get into but I still like to carve a pumpkin and put on a film. This year I thought I’d do a bake as well. Something easy and simple that anyone else can do!
With Autumn in full spring I really wanted to do another bake with Apples this year. I did do one a couple of years ago when I first started this blog for an Apple Crumble Cake. If you fancy trying that here’s the link! Anyway, I found this recipe for a really simple cake which just requires a quick mix of ingredients and a 30 min bake. The cake is a vanilla sponge with apple pieces finished with a sugary cinnamon syrup for the top.
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!
