It’s been a hot minute since I did a spot of baking on my blog but look who’s back in the kitchen! I couldn’t not share with you how to bake this clotted cream cake with a citrus drizzle topped with chocolate that I baked the other afternoon, seen as I had some clotted cream left, which in my opinion is rather scrumptious. It is a twist on the classic drizzle cake which I am also partial to. If you are like me and are a lover of lemon, this take on a lemon drizzle cake recipe, full of citrus flavour will be right up your street – trust me. I promise you won’t regret making this which you can enjoy at the end with friends and family…or just yourself…same.
Instead of using icing, I decorated it with melted chocolate on top of the drizzle (made with a simple sugar and lemon mixture) because I just needed to sneak a bit of chocolate in the recipe somehow didn’t I. I love this recipe for a lazy Spring Sunday afternoon with a warm cuppa or even as a treat during the week for afternoon tea. What’s not to love!
Before we delve in, let’s just make this clear that I am by no means the Mary Berry of baking myself and it still tasted delish which is the main thing am I right? So this recipe is perfect for all baking abilities, quick to make and requires little fancy ingredients because no body has time for that.
Once Christmas was over, I still had quite a few bananas left in the fruit bowl so I thought I’d make use of them and bake this good old-fashioned cake with a chocolate twist, because although Christmas might be over, I still needed to sneak a bit of chocolate in the recipe some how. This lovely, moist loaf, a sort of cross between banana bread and a drizzle cake, is so easy to bake, perfect for using up over-ripe bananas and can be served straight after baking or frozen. You can literally mix everything in one bowl and there are very few ingredients needed, which sounds like my kinda recipe. It was my first time making this fruity banana bread myself and it’s already a winner for me, and is a kinda healthy snack too. What’s not to love! View Post
HAPPY BONFIRE NIGHT LOVES! The other day I was having a scroll on Pinterest (as per usual) for some bonfire inspired cupcakes seen as bonfire night was approaching and came across these super cute cupcakes with a log burning fire design on the top to give the effect of looking like a bonfire. As like everything on Pinterest, I knew mine weren’t going to turn out exactly like they do on the picture but I thought I would have a bash at baking them for myself this afternoon and I don’t think they turned out too bad for a first attempt? These cupcakes follow a basic cupcake recipe so they are actually super easy to make and most importantly, taste DELISH. Although my last baking post was only a few weeks ago and it’s a bit late seen as it’s November the 5th today, I thought I would share this recipe with you anyway if you fancy having a go at making them next year! I promise you won’t regret making these fun ‘Bangin’ Bonfire Cupcakes’ (see what I did there) which most importantly, you can enjoy at the end with friends and family…or just yourself 😉 View Post
What better way to make your cosy autumn evenings catching up on your fave TV show sat by the fire more delicious than munching on a rather delish choc chip cookie?? (or two…) Especially when bake offs on! I thought I would have a go at making them the other afternoon and trust me, this recipe is SO quick, easy and most importantly fun to make which are the perfect (admittedly slightly unhealthy) snack which I’ve been craving ever since. They are soo good! For me, a cookie has to be gooey and a decent size (no messing around here guys & gals) and these definitely tick those boxes! It was my first time having a bash at baking these and I would definitely bake them again! The recipe also requires very little ingredients to make so no fancy expensive ingredients are needed! Let me know if you do, I promise you will not regret it! View Post
It’s impossible to eat just one of these rather delish, moreish biscuits from my childhood! Especially ‘dunked’ in a good old British cuppa! A few days ago when I fancied something to do, I had a go at baking these ginger biscuits and thought I would share with you how I made them for this months bake! If you’ve run out of biscuits in the house and fancy something to grab for a snack, these crumbly but soft in the middle biscuits with a kick of ginger that are super quick and easy to make are perfect! These also don’t require much skill or need any fancy ingredients to make so anyone can have a go at baking them!
