Banana Maple Cake with Salted Caramel Swirl

I had it in my head that I wanted banana, maple syrup and salted caramel all wrapped up in a cake. To make sure the cake wasn’t tooth achingly sweet I took out a lot of the refined sugars because maple syrup is a liquid sugar, banana’s bring their own sweetness to the party and salted caramel is pure sugary goodness 😀 Too up the salted caramel even more I made a smooth rich salted caramel buttercream and drizzled even more caramel...

So instead of making a Christmas cake this year I’ve decided to make this amazing cake instead. It’s that good! Alternative Christmas cake I never thought a cake without flour could...

Blue Velvet Roulade

I have a small confession to make this post is completely self-indulgent. It’s probably not a popular style cake, nowhere near what’s trending right now on Twitter or Google. But you know what? This time I don’t care as its my birthday soon and I wanted to make a cake all for me 😀 I’m usually away with work on my birthday and if I am lucky my ship will be alongside and I can head up the road for a glass of wine or two. But this year I...

Coffee Cake with Salted Caramel Drizzle

I may have mentioned this once or twice already but I am a total coffee fiend! I drink so much of it I could almost be considered an addict. I can’t even function in the morning until I have had my cup of hot back java. And it’s always a bonus if I can eat my coffee as well. Hence why I set out to find a lovely coffee cake I would want to bake again and again. I have to admit also to being a bit of a coffee shop fan, much to my...

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

I just can’t get enough of them and this one in particular I had been after for a while. As soon as I...
