Cranachan with Scottish Raspberries

My boyfriend turned twenty five on Tuesday and because I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment I thought I would make him something nice for when he got home from work. A birthday cake would have been an obvious choice but I remember him mentioning how much he loves the Scottish dessert cranachan. Since Scottish raspberries are in the shops now I thought I would attempt to make it for the first time. The only change I made was to use spiced rum instead of whisky because neither of us…

Mini Blackberry Bakewells with Aldi

If you've caught any of my baking posts you'll know that I bake regularly. This means I've got a god stock of the basics in my store cupboard ready to go but purchasing all these ingredients initially can be really expensive. That's where Aldi come in because with their 'The Pantry' range you can stock up at the fraction of the cost of regular supermarkets. All these ingredients for example cost me only £8.31 and I have plenty of the basics to try another recipe too. I love Aldi because of…

Sweet Potato Cake | #CaribbeanTreasure

Inntravel have just launched a new holiday to Dominica in the Caribbean and have asked lots of bloggers to get involved with their #CaribbeanTreasure campaign. I've never been to the Caribbean before but it is somewhere I'd love to visit. My Aunt and Uncle went to Saint Martin a few months ago and couldn't have raved about it more. This recipe was created by Chef Dean who owns the Caribbean Café in Leeds so it is definitely an authentic recipe. Plus if they do more baking like this in…

Delicious Chocolate Brownies

Looking at my blog I can see I've not done a baking post in a while. I made this for a first time a few weeks ago but I will defiantly make it again. These brownies promise to be soft and creamy, made with dark chocolate and have a texture like truffles. Tasty! Ingredients: 240g of dark chocolate 100g of unsalted butter 3 eggs 135g golden caster sugar 55g of plain flour coco powder for dusting This is a really simple recipe. First of all I started by melting the butter and the chocolate in a…

The Best Cookie Recipe

I wish I could take credit for this cookie recipe but it is from Tanya Burr's blog. After seeing her and Zoe make them in several vlogs I decided to give them ago and they didn't disappoint. The real trick is to long bake them for 10 minutes - they won't be properly cooked but once they are removed they continue to bake in their own heat for about half an hour. They stay perfectly gooey in the middle for days too - if they last that long. You will need: 200g butter 300g caster sugar 1 large…

Peach and Summer Berry Tart

I've been dying to make this tart since we first got the cookbook because it's on the cover I look at it every time and dream so when the fruit was in season a few weeks ago I thought I would give it ago. It is packed full of fruit! I would make this quick while they are still in season (just). This recipe has two parts. Firstly you made the pastry for the tart then you make a small amount of spong mixture for the base. It would work with my fruit combination you fancy so just give it ago…

Melting Moments with a Passionfruit Filling

At the moment it feels like 90% of the blogging community is chatting about the return of the great british bake off and after being addicted last year I couldn't wait for it to return. A few weeks go I heard about #thegreatbloggerbakeoff - great idea huh? You can imagine my excitement when I discovered that this weeks theme (biscuits) tied in with something I was planning to bake anyway. I'm not going to put a baking post up every week for the whole series though - just when I feel…

You will need: 75g of caster sugar 75g of butter 75g of plain flour 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy then beat in the egg and vanilla extract until it is all combined…

Cherry Bakewell Slice

Firstly I'm going to say you can skip the whole first step of this recipe and buy 375g ready rolled sweet short crust pastry from your local supermarket but to me baking don't truly seem homemade if you haven't done everything by yourself. This is the same recipe I used for my apple tarts with the quantities adjusted. It is very easy and quick to complete. Firstly you will need: Pastry: 225 Unsalted Butter 375g Plain Flour 75g Caster Sugar Splash of cold water Rub together the butter and the…

Fluffy Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

I've not shared a pancake recipe on my blog since my first year of blogging. The photos leave a lot to be deserved but it is still my favourite crepe recipe. This year I decided to do something a little different and make fluffy pancakes. This recipe doesn't involve any tossing instead you just pop the lid on the pan. You will need: 1 cup of flour 1 table spoon of baking powder 1 cup of warmed milk 40g of melted butter 1 egg Sift the flower and baking powder into a bowl then in another bowl…
