Cardamom & Yogurt Cake

I’ll admit, I’m not ready to let go of summer yet, much as I do love autumn & all of its wonderful shades, I’m a summer baby & simply adore the sunshine & the heat (why I live in Wales then, I do not know!). At least though, late summer & early autumn bring a …

Carrot Cake

Hello, shwmae & welcome to The Marmalade Teapot! I suppose I should introduce myself… well, I’m Katie. Baker, technophobe & first time blogger. I make way too many a cake & bread so I thought I’d share my passion & ever growing collection of recipes with whoever wants them, starting with my favourite, carrot cake. …

Nectarine & Pistachio Loaf

In season right now are nectarines. Yes, they’re basically peaches but without the fuzzy skin. In season from about May through to October, they’re at their best between July & August though. These pretty round, yellow-red stone fruits are actually a type of peach, however nectarines are smaller, firmer & whilst being slightly more acidic, …

Summer Berry Cake

Poeth (or hot if you’re reading this in anywhere other than Wales), it has been uncharacteristically hot here in Wales this week. Summer in the UK usually consist of brief bursts of summer sun, likely for around 3-4 days (if we’re lucky) before the sun retreats in defeat of grey clouds once again.  This week …

Matcha Cake

Curiously Pastel Normally, when your bakes develop a green hue then it’s probably best destined for the bin as it is certainly no longer safe for consumption (believe it or not but this has happened once or twice in this house). Recently however, we have seen a trend in pretty pastel coloured foods popping up on our news feeds …

Duck Egg Cake

Forgotten Eggs Easter, traditionally a religious celebration of life.. here in the UK however, it is most synonymous with chocolate eggs (this is not necessarily a bad thing). Easter eggs themselves are in essence a symbol of Jesus’ empty tomb, a rather sombre thought when you’re about the destroy the cheerful easter chick on your Cadbury’s chocolate …

AD – Apple & Marzipan Cake

Marzipan, a rather Marmite food.. you either love it or hate it. Personally I have a deep fondness of this sweet confection which is made up of ground almonds, egg & either sugar or honey to form a versatile malleable paste. Reminiscent of Christmas for me, December is when my pantry is overrun with both marzipan & …

Sticky Ginger Cake

Ice & Spice It’s been a chilly weekend here in Wales as the icy disposition of Winter dominates our mornings once again, transforming the landscape into a peaceful, glistening wonderland. Unfortunately this also signals the return of my most loathsome chore, de-icing the cars (ugh). Despite being someone who is affected by the cold more than any person …

Winter Spice Cake

Limbo Month Happy new year from The Marmalade Teapot! I demolished the gingerbread house yesterday (a sad but satisfying moment), meaning that as much as I may be in denial Christmas is officially over & normal life resumes. However  I still remain in that holiday mentality for now, it’s difficult to relinquish whilst the house still contains …

Gingerbread Loaf

Gingerbread, a word that is music to my ears & is sure to grab my full attention. The festive scent, the dense squidgy texture, the perfectly balanced spices, what’s not to love? Lebkuchen, biscuits, parkin, pepperkaker, elaborately iced houses there are endless variations of this spiced treat from all corners of the world. The term …
