Chocolate & Pistachio Thumbprint Biscuits

My biscuit consumption has exponentially increased during lockdown, so much so that I’m convinced I’m keeping Tunnock’s & McVitie’s in business with my weekly shops alone at this point. It’s probably the comfort more than the eating itself (although, I do enjoy eating…definitely not going to fit into those jeans when all this is over), …

Halloween Cupcakes

There are but few times in the year when I actually get excited to bake something a little bit decorative & themed…. Easter, Christmas & Halloween (you may have noticed). I’m more of a fondant-fearer by nature, someone who would quite happily pass over any cupcake for something less smothered in buttercream & more substantial …

Chocolate Brownies

If you’re after an indulgent chocolate hit, as far as baked goods go, there’s nothing chocolatier than a brownie (unless you eat pure chocolate from the store cupboard anyway). An American invention & widely popular almost everywhere these days, it’s unclear where the origins of these chocolatey squares lay. There are many different theories, mostly …

Christmas Cake Truffles

We all love a good chocolate truffle in some shape or form & often associate them with special occasions or cheeky indulgent ones (you know, the times where you have nothing to celebrate but just want chocolate). Traditionally made by rolling or coating a spherical shaped chocolate ganache centre in things such as icing sugar, …

Brigadeiros

Brigadeiros are a traditional Brazilian dessert, they’re super sweet, gooey, dense & covered in sprinkles, they resemble a fudgy chocolate truffle. The brigadeiro is considered a national icon in Brazil. It’s origins date back to 1945 when the …

White Chocolate Easter Cake

Underrated Confections Happy Easter!! It’s that time of year again when we over indulge, begin to lose layers of clothing, celebrate long weekends with copious amounts of alcohol & all become chocoholics. Isn’t it great?! I am one who is guilty of all of the above. I begin to reluctantly lose layers of clothing as …

Chocolate Guinness Cake

Celebration. I’m happy to say that this is the theme in my life at the moment, 2018 seems to be working out rather well (fingers & toes crossed). Don’t get too excited though as no, there’s still no book deal or promise of opening up the Marmalade Teapot tea rooms just yet but I’m glad …

Pear, Chocolate & Amaretto Cake

As you may or may now know, I’ve recently returned from an amazing trip across northern Italy, which is why things have been a little quiet here on MT lately. I spent an 10 amazing days travelling between Venice, Verona, Milan & Turin before finally ending our trip on the southern coast of France in …

No Bake After Eight Cheesecake

Every Christmas (yes, I know we’re in late February) my very kind family always gift me a large box of After Eight Mints, due to my love of all things mint this has practically become a tradition (apart from the disappointing Christmas of 2014 which we shall not mention). Slowly word spread of just how easily pleased this baker is when …
