French Toast Bagels with Maple Mango Salsa

With it being Easter weekend I wanted to share with you a really great lazy day breakfast that is so simple to make and oh so delicious. No fancy skills are needed to put together this amazing breakfast treat. Another great thing with this Bagel French toast with Mango Maple Salsa recipe is it uses up old bagels. If you are anything like me then you adore bagels, but I find they tend to come in large packs and by the time I have gotten halfway through them they have started to go stale. This is a great way to use them up instead of throwing...

Beetroot Chocolate Cake

With Easter fast approaching there was only one kind of cake I could share with you and that is of course a chocolate cake. And not just any chocolate cake but a Beetroot Chocolate cake! See it’s not all unhealthy stuff on this blog! I like to chuck a few veggies in their too just to keep things well balanced….   Seriously though this is a beautifully moist deep chocolaty cake that even has dark chocolate chips in it for taste and texture. A while ago I shared chocolate beetroot cupcakes with you but this is a different recipe. One that has...

Lemon and Poppyseed Bread Swirls

We all love our sweet rolls, especially us food bloggers. We love to see them with savoury fillings, sweet fillings, candy fillings, it doesn’t matter. If it can be stuffed in a bread roll we will give it a go! But I have decided to be a little more normal this time and to celebrate the arrival of Spring I have gone for the classic flavour combination of lemon and poppyseed.   But these are not your typical sweet rolls, yes the recipe is pretty much the same, and the method for making them doesn’t differ greatly, but I wanted a...

Cherry Rhubarb Pie

Today is officially the first day of Spring and to celebrate this I am sharing a lovely fruit pie with you. This is one of those bizarre recipes that came together by accident. I had several things that needed to be used up otherwise they were going to go off. I had a roll of sweet short crust pastry sitting in the fridge with only a few days before it went out of date and a couple of sticks of rhubarb I bought on a whim and a can of cherry pie filling that had sat in the back of the cupboard for almost as long as I have been writing this...

Blueberry Banana Smoothie {Vegan and GF}

I have been a vegetarian for over 30 years now. I flirted with a vegan diet but I just in all honesty couldn’t give up butter or cheese. Ohhhh cheese how I love thee all melty and gooey on toast and butter with all its creaminess and flavour that it imparts into cake…… I think you get the picture 😉 Anyway onto this blueberry banana smoothie, one thing I have never really found a taste for is milk, I know it’s good for you and its full of calcium and vitamins but I am just not that much of a fan of it. I drink my tea...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

This is a sponsored post. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own. This post contains no affiliate links just a link back to the sponsor British Lion Eggs. I have made no secret on this blog about my peanut butter obsession, I absolutely adore the stuff. I can happily eat it straight from the jar with a spoon. Crunchy or smooth I don’t care, but in baking I prefer to bake with smooth peanut butter and that is what I have used in these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes. I just prefer it but there is no reason you...
