I am off to Nepal for the whole of the Easter holidays, crazy I know. I can hardly believe it myself. So, I decided to bake something in the spirit of Easter, which is bound to be celebrated in quite a different fashion in Nepal, if in fact at all. I have no idea! What […]

Buttermilk Breakfast Muffins

buttermilk breakfast muffins

These muffins were very difficult to name. Yes they are buttermilk breakfast muffins but they are also so much more than that. Oaty, fruit packed, super duper light and low in sugar not to mention healthy-ish, I used spelt and wholemeal flour, two fruits and one veg. The trouble is they are so good the […]

Valentine Mochaccino Mousse

Does anyone actually go out and eat in restaurants on Valentine’s day? It is a contrived scenario to find yourself in. A restaurant only set up with tables of two, a single stem rose in a thin vase and lots of pink splashed around looking anything but pretty in pink. I purposefully avoid restaurants on […]

Light as a wispy cloud, melt in the mouth and only made from two ingredients.How could they possibly be bettered? Well they can. Brown sugar meringues knock their white sugar buddies sideways. BOOSH! Thanks to Diana Henry for enlightening me with […]

Toffee Apple Date & Pecan Crumble

Sometimes I really struggle to be creative in the kitchen. Other times, recipes just appear in my head and I know, without a shadow of a doubt that they will work. This recipe is one such example.  If I take too long to agonise over flavours my efforts seem laboured and contrived.When something pops into […]

Halloween Pumpkin Cookies

Happy Halloween! I have just baked some low sugar, lightly spiced Halloween Pumkpin Cookies this morning splattered with vivid orange icing. For real gore fanatics, you might want to try bright red glace icing instead.  These cookies include mashed pumpkin but any type of squash would work. They have a light crumbly texture and are […]

There are so many recipes featuring pumpkin that I want to try at the moment. I keep finding myself bookmarking recipes galore. Most of the time I like to create my own bakes from scratch but when I am really pressed for time as I am this week, I just want to bake something new, […]
