2) Biscuit Week: Ginger & Lemon Cheesecake Sandwich Biscuits

The second week of The Great British Bake Off brought us biscuits aplenty and a barrel-full of snappy puns from Sandi and Noel. As the pair became more comfortable on screen, so did the viewing experience (although it seemed that much of their interactions were feeding one another!). I braced myself this week after Paul… Continue reading 2) Biscuit Week: Ginger & Lemon Cheesecake Sandwich Biscuits

1) Cake Week: Home-Grown Courgette & Banana Cake

As I'm sure you're all well aware, last week saw the eagerly anticipated return of the Great British Bake Off to our tellies. I think it's fair to say we all breathed a sigh of relief when, despite losing our beloved Mary Berry and Mel & Sue, Channel 4 committed to keeping the Bake Off… Continue reading 1) Cake Week: Home-Grown Courgette & Banana Cake

Ginspiration: Ways with Orange Blossom Water Part 2

Where do I be-gin? A fragrant twist on the classic G & T, this simple yet effective concoction left me gin-spired (sorry - I'm done with the dodgy gin puns now). Anyway, this bank holiday weekend called for something a little more inspiring than your bog standard g+t, so I whipped up some of these… Continue reading Ginspiration: Ways with Orange Blossom Water Part 2

Having never used it before I was excited to… Continue reading Ways With Orange Blossom Water – Part 1

Pick of the Season: Rhubarb, Lemon & Ginger Cake

It's just the season for rhubarb and as the days get brighter (and in spite of British weather) my bakes are becoming more and more bountiful with fruity, vibrant flavours. I picked up my 'barb with no specific intention of what to bake, but it just so happened I'd treated myself to some gorgeous ginger curd from a nearby National Trust shop just… Continue reading Pick of the Season: Rhubarb, Lemon & Ginger Cake

On-The-Go Granola Bars

10:30am and the hunger pangs strike. By this time I've been awake for over 4 hours and I'm desperately trying to stop myself from demolishing my lunch before I'm even close to hitting the halfway point of the day. The alternative is usually a sad-looking piece of fruit that's been on the desk for a… Continue reading On-The-Go Granola Bars

Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops

Autumn is the season for all things nice, and for me it just isn't complete without pumpkin and spice! Warming and wonderfully comforting, pumpkin isn't just great for making hearty soups and carving up jack-o'-lanterns, it also makes a mean brownie mixture! Combine this with chocolate in a bite-sized cake pop and you have a… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops
