My 2013 baking list

My 2013 baking list

I wrote this post in drafts at the start of the year and, typically, just as I get round to posting it, my oven breaks! We turned it on to preheat a few days ago but after a couple of minutes there was a flash of light, a loud pop and then nothing. It may...
Magimix - John Lewis Technology for Living

Magimix – John Lewis Technology for Living

I am really excited to be taking part in the John Lewis Technology for Living project and testing a Magimix 5200XL food processor. I’ve only ever had a small food processor attachment for my Kenwood and it has never been very effective, so I was wondering how I would get on with the Magimix. After...
Cakes and Bakes of 2011

Cakes and Bakes of 2011

Wow, I can’t believe it is 2012 already! Happy New Year everyone! Last year I had a busy time baking – I didn’t realise how many cakes I had baked until I started to put together this collage so I have just picked some of my favourite ones. I was delighted to make the cake...
Chocolate beetroot cake

Chocolate beetroot cake

Last year I saw a whole host of beetroot flavoured cake and brownie recipes appear, but never got round to trying any myself. This year, when I was given some beetroot, I decided that I definitely needed to try and make a chocolate beetroot cake. I am so glad I did – it was the...
September Bake It! - Back to School

September Bake It! – Back to School

After a little break while I switched over to this new blog, the monthly Bake It! Club is back! Thank you to those of you who contacted me to ask if I was going to continue with it – I wasn’t sure if it was worth carrying on with, but even if just a couple...
Sundried tomato and cheese rolls

Sundried tomato and cheese rolls

You can probably tell from previous posts that sundried tomato and cheese is one of my favourite flavour combinations! This recipe is adapted from one I included in my book, but as I didn’t have any parmesan in the house I used a lovely mature cheddar cheese instead. Faith loves helping me out in the...
May Bake It! Recipe - Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

May Bake It! Recipe – Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Sorry, I’m a little (or a lot!) late this month posting the recipe! I hope the lemon meringue cupcake recipe – delicious for these sunny Spring days, will make up for it. There were only a couple of entries into the club again last month so congratulations to Lucy, who I picked randomly as the...

March Bake It! Club

Having said I wasn’t going to do a link-up for the recipes this month, I was then pointed in the direction of inlinkz, which seems to be similar to what I was using before. So we’ll give this a go! I’ve seen several carrot and orange cakes popping up on blogs and I’m pleased to...

Billy The Bear Birthday Cake

Last year I made a rabbit shaped cake for Tegan’s birthday so I was delighted when her Mum came back to me this year and asked if I’d make another cake for her. This time Tegan wanted a cake in the shape of her favourite toy – Billy The Bear! I was sent a photo...

March Bake It! recipe – carrot and orange cake

Last month was manic and I’m afraid life got in the way of baking and blogging so there was no Bake It! recipe – apologies to those who missed it. It also means I didn’t get to announce the prize winner from January’s recipe, which didn’t seem to be very popular as there were only...

Yule-Blog Bake Challenge

A while ago I was invited to take part in the Most Wanted Yule-Blog Bake Challenge, and as I’m always up for a baking challenge I thought I’d have a go. The brief was to bake, photograph and blog something that represents Christmas to you, the only rule being that it has to be a...

November Bake It! Club

I hope the Fudgy Chocolate Pudding recipe has gone down well this month – it certainly seems an¬†appropriate¬†pudding given the cold weather we are experiencing at the moment! I’ve seen a few yummy looking puds so far and am looking forward to seeing more. I’m trying to lose weight so looking at other people’s baking...
