White chocolate, cranberry & pumpkin seed flapjack

aka festive flapjack! A beautiful mix of golden buttery flapjack, nutty pumpkin seeds, chewy sour cranberries, creamy white chocolate and bitter dark chocolate makes the PERFECT treat! Believe it or not (despite what my blog might show 🙈), I have been trying really hard to eat well, cut down on the ol’ booze and have…

Baked saucy chocolate pudding

It’s now officially autumn and even better, it’s October! One of my favourite months of the year. Evenings are drawing in and what better to snuggle up with on the sofa than a hot, cosy pudding! Especially when it’s packed with chocolate. I can’t bake – it’s a well known fact with most people I…

Lime and Courgette Cake

OK, so I know this sounds a little odd, but it is absolutely delicious and definitely worth a try! Vegetables are being used more and more in our sweet treats, Carrot Cake being the more obvious option and using beetroot in chocolate cake also works really well, but courgette adds a lovely flavour and a…

Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Cream Profiteroles

Make these delicious profiteroles to impress your friends and family! So easy to make but absolutely divine, you can knock these up in no time. I have made these with just vanilla and chocolate, but have previously done different variants. Once you have the basic choux pastry right, why not get experimenting and add different…

Recipe (makes 12 decent sized cookies) 125g salted butter 100g light brown sugar 125g caster sugar 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla bean paste…

GruyÚre and Parmesan twice baked cheese soufflés

It’s Friday and that means it’s the start of the weekend! So why not treat yourself to something absolutely delicious? SoufflĂ©s are notoriously tricky and are basically a show stopper for you to impress your guests, or quite frankly even yourself! But this soufflĂ© is twice baked, meaning it’s a lot easier and less of a…

Baked apple crumble pots with oats and cinnamon

Here’s a tasty recipe for apple crumble. A recipe that made me actually like apple crumble after years of absolutely hating the stuff. Bitter, sour apples under unsweetened baked flour mix? No thanks. My mum (sorry mum!) for years had me dreading the stuff. As a child, my mum would cook this every Sunday; amazing…

Broccoli, Ham and Tomato Quiche – with a perfect pastry shell

Quiche, not something everyone cooks anymore! It’s not great for the waist, a bit of a faff to make and takes time. HOWEVER, Quiche is delicious! It reminds me of my childhood as my mum would cook one a week. It’s cheap, uses ingredients you will have around the kitchen and once you know how…
