Traditional Christmas Cake

Last Christmas I went a bit radical with my Christmas cake and made a Gluten Free Clementine Cake and while it was amazing and had such lovely festive flavours, this year I was feeling a little more old fashioned and decided to make an old family recipe and make a more traditional Christmas cake. A rich fruit cake topped with a marzipan and icing layer and decorated in a festive style. Fruity Madness Any fruit cake starts with a good...

Green Tea Cupcakes

If you are anything like me then you are a bit of a magpie when it comes to cookbooks. I have shelves of them that I have bought read and re-read but very rarely make anything from them. I think half of the issue is I am trying to share something original with you guys so I don’t want to do too many recipes out of cookbooks. But this particular recipe from The Primrose Bakery Book for green tea cupcakes has been on my to bake...

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

I have a little bit of a confession to make, these were meant to be whoopie pies. Do you remember them? For a while there they were really popular. I have only once had them on my site (Pumpkin Whoopie Pies) and I really like them, bigger than cupcakes but smaller than a slice of cake. It’s like having a mini cake all to yourself 😀 But when I popped these in the oven they spread like mad and became one big splurge on the baking...

Lime Infused Victoria Sponge with Blueberry Jam

I now it sounds a little weird, especially from someone who writes a baking blog. But I have a little confession to make….. I don’t often make cakes!!! Not in the traditional sense anyway. I love tray-bakes, hey who doesn’t so simple and yummy. Loaf cakes as well, brilliant especially for cakes perfect for breakfast. I am talking good old fashioned layer cakes. Which is crazy after all post war Britain was built on...
