mini cheddar & rosemary scones

Coming at you this week with some cheesy carbs to soak up all the Christmas alcohol you’re going to be consuming. These little mouthfuls of joy are perfect for the job. Mini, cheesy, savoury, ready to be lashed with butter, perfect with a big cuppa. Mmmm. I like to use cheddar in these scones, but if you have an alternative favourite hard, aged cheese feel free to use it instead!…

holiday spiced cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies with candied ginger

Sugar and spice and all things nice was what I had in mind when I created this recipe. It has all my favourite things about a cookie. Oats, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, warming spices, chewy centres and crispy edges. These smell just like Christmas while they’re baking and are the perfect midnight treat with a glass of ice cold milk. I know that cookie texture is a hotly debated subject.…

salted honey apple galette

salted honey apple galette

I cannot wait to share this one with you all! This galette is divine. The smell while it’s baking… if only I could package it up into a scented candle and send you one. So good. Something I’d noticed when making galettes before is that the sweetener used for the fruit filling is always sugar. When there are so many other options out there, why just use sugar!? Honey is so…

spiced apple cake pie

Yes, you read that correctly. Apple cake pie. Because why have just a cake, when you can have one inside a pie?! Best of both worlds. I’m definitely one of those people who finds it hard to make a decision when it comes to dessert, and I was really struggling between all these gorgeous dutch apple cakes I keep seeing on insta, and a classic apple pie. So I put…

These little beauties are easy to whip up and ideal if you have just made my pandan ice-cream and are looking for something to do with all those egg whites. They also make great party favours or a replacement for a wedding cake. Meringue is also fat-free. As if you needed any other persuasion. I have made meringues plenty of times…

piña colada cake virtual birthday surprise

This post is a little different. As you may know, I am spending the summer in Texas, and yet again I will be missing my mother’s birthday. She has supported me endlessly, and provided for me selflessly my entire life. So I wanted to do a little something to show her how loved she is and how thankful I am to have her, from several thousand miles away. A virtual…

frosted funfetti blondie bars

So I’ll let you guys in on a secret, a very sad secret. Back in the UK, where I’m from, we don’t have sprinkles like this. At all. Funfetti is not a thing. Just let that sink in a little. I know that these sprinkles are only so colourful because of the artificial colourings (which are not permitted in the UK, unfortunately), but they are so pretty! So I knew…
