My Nans Banana Cake

My Nan’s Banana Cake     Banana in any form of cake, loaf, biscuit, cupcake or just plain fruit, reminds me of my Nan’s banana cake. It can instantly transport me back to my childhood when we would go around her house as kids and be treated to a slice for afternoon tea.   Yes I know that sounds very old fashioned but my Nan is 92 years old and afternoon tea was a big thing for her generation. My mum followed her tradition when...

Hairy Bikers Amsterdam Caramel cookies

Amsterdam Caramel Cookies by the Hairy Bikers     I am not the world’s biggest cookie fan, but my partner loves them so occasionally I’ll forgo the girly cupcakes and bake something more for him. We both really enjoyed the BBC TV series The Hairy Bikers Bakcation, and bless him he bought the book for me the moment it came out. Its a seriously good read with some cracking ideas in it. If you fancy a bit of a bake-a-thon with stuff...

Vanilla and Yellow Plum Jam

I have nothing against shop bought jams I...

Salted Vanilla Bean Caramels

My first attempt at salted vanilla bean caramels!   I had never made caramels before, don’t get me wrong it’s always my first choice when the chocolate box is passed my way but the thought of making them never really crossed my mind. Until I spotted these salted vanilla bean caramels on one of my favorite baking blogs Confections of a Foodie Bride and I just had to try them, at least once.   Now I’m hooked and...

Mums Homemade Cheese Scones

  Everyone is the same when it comes to their mum’s cooking, and its no different for me. Especially when it comes to these scones which I have affectionately called Mums Homemade Cheese Scones. Its true what they say, mums truly know best. I think it has to do with going back home and being looked after by someone who knows exactly what you want and how you like it.   My job recently took me back to my hometown for a while and I had...

Malted Chocolate Cupcakes

  For my first post I had to think carefully, did I want to go for something overly complicated just to try and show off a bit and no doubt have it back fire terribly or should I go for something a little simpler and more elegant. Start small and build from there? With much internal debating I decided to go for a little something in between. This is why malted chocolate cupcakes were a perfect choice.  A quick and simple cake to make...
