One of my favourite things to eat growing up was always a Bakewell Tart. Me and my best friend would buy a whole box of them and demolish them together. In particular I remember buying a giant one and thinking it was the best thing since sliced bread. For me it’s the almond flavour which does it. I love anything almondy and the sweetness of the jam and icing make for a delicious combo! I finally got round to making my own, and although messy, they turned out great!

One of my favourite treats is bakewell tarts! I love anything with an almond flavour. To relieve my craving without having to make full bakewell tarts I found a fab recipe for Bakwell flapjacks. These are so easy to make using really simple ingredients as well. It was mostly just mixing everything into one bowl and cooking in the oven. The flapjack is topped with white chocolate which was a great addition too!
If you’re a Cherry Bakewell fan like me, you’ll love these sticky flapjacks!
Another week, another cookie recipe. This week is to help those who can’t find any eggs on the shelves at the minute. These chocolate chip cookies are delicious with a cup of tea and are so quick to make and bake. You can switch up the chocolate chips for something different like M&Ms or maybe you still have some Mini Eggs to get through from Easter! The egg is replaced with milk and oil which sounds gross but you really can’t tell!
I promise the next recipe will not be cookie related, but you have to admit, you cant beat a good cookie!
Life in isolation/social distancing can be incredibly boring. It can be really easy to be unmotivated to do a lot and become really unproductive. Personally, I find this can put me in a really low mood making the challenging time we are in, even more difficult to push through. I’ve taken up a new, creative hobby to try teach myself from online tutorials and books and honestly, it has killed a lot of time and been very therapeutic.
If you’re starting to feel restless, bored, unproductive why not try baking? It’s not as daunting as some people think if you follow all the great recipes and guides that are out there. If this is something you’re toying with why not start here? This is my beginner’s recipe to vanilla cupcakes. This recipe is also great to do with bored kids and you can get as creative as you want with them! By the end you’ll feel a sense off accomplishment and you get to eat. A win win if you ask me!
Another post, another cheesecake! I am a big fan of a no bake cheesecake and it is always my ‘go to’ if I’m hosting. It’s so easy to make but soo delicious. This time it’s a Malteaser version perfect for any chocolate lover!
It’s been a whole year now since I was making a Frozen Birthday cake for my niece’s 4th Birthday! This weekend I was asked to make her Birthday cake again. I searched the internet fro something which looked fun for a kid but also didn’t take too much time (as I had an afternoon to get it done). I found this amazing, colourful looking Smarties cake, covered with chocolate finger and with a chocolate filling inside. The cake is truly a kids dream and looked like something that could be created in a few hours. This cake is not only perfect for a kids Birthday but would also work for big kids too!!
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.
The mornings are darker, the days feel shorter and the weather is definitely colder! It finally feels as though summer is over and although that means goodbye to hot weather and the sun, there is still plenty to love about Autumn and Winter…and the food is one! I was originally looking for a recipe with Apples however then felt inspired to try something different with Aumtumnal spices and Pumpkin. It’s the month of Halloween after all.
