Welsh Cakes

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus! Or if you’re not from Wales or a Welsh speaker, Happy Saint David’s Day! Saint David’s Day is the feast day of the patron saint of Wales & it falls on March 1st, the date of Saint David’s death. The day is much celebrated throughout Wales (even though it’s not a …

Rhubarb & Ginger Galettes

As we wait for Spring to make its grand entrance, luckily we can still enjoy a pop of colour in these dreary winter days, all thanks to forced rhubarb season. Running right through from December until the end of March, bright & beautiful pink stems of rhubarb are available. Although technically a vegetable (seriously), we …

Chai Millionaires Shortbread

It’s cold, it’s dark & I find myself craving everything spiced, hot & stodgy… it can only be Winter. For me, baking at this time of year involves ransacking the store cupboard, lots of dried fruit, syrup & spices in almost everything (if only living off of gingerbread alone were a sustainable diet).  With half …

Semlor

Pancakes, that’s what we associate with Shrove Tuesday here in the UK (affectionately referred to as ‘pancake day’). Pancakes are made from what would have been considered rich, fattening ingredients, eggs & milk, in an effort to use them up before the beginning of Lent. This Christian observation of fasting from both food & festivities …

Raspberry Macarons

Continuing the romantic vibes this week, except today I’m bringing you something a little bit daintier & definitely fancier than your usual cake or biscuit, raspberry macarons. Something that does require a little bit of patience & practice but that’s what makes them all the more special to make for someone as a gift (not …

Red Velvet Bundt

Everything is better baked in a bundt, fact! Why? Because the tin literally takes all of the hard work out of the decorating & faffing to make your bakes look beautiful (win, win!). I won’t tell you exactly how many bundt tins I own but let’s just say that I keep Nordic Ware in business. …

Tiramisu

It’s safe to say that I’m in a romantic mood at the moment what with Valentines day just around the corner, how do I know? Because I found myself making one of my all-time favourite desserts, tiramisu. Quite possibly the purest & simplest of desserts & definitely the queen of coffee flavoured treats. It’s my …

Rhubarb Panna Cotta

Romance is in the air & Valentines day is just around the corner. Not usually one’s to make much of a fuss on the day (we usually just buy each other an obscenely rude card) but, it is another excuse to indulge a little, so we do usually celebrate with good food… a slap up …
