Lemon & Elderflower Cake

It’s not often that I get to post a celebratory recipe here but today I’m doing just that. What am I celebrating? The Marmalade Teapot! This tiny corner of the internet that I call mine. Today marks not only the blogs 6th year anniversary but this post also marks my 200th recipe! If you’d have …

Lemon Curd

It appears (or at least it feels as though) that summer may have come to an early demise here in the UK, there’s a chill in the air, the nights are drawing in & all signs already point to autumn. I’m not content to let go just yet though. If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed …

Easter Trifle

Pasg hapus pawb! Happy Easter everyone! Easter is one of those beautiful celebrations throughout the year that is surrounded by delicious food, a time where indulgence is key & showstopping cakes or desserts a must (or at least it is in my kitchen anyway!). But, as with any celebration it can come with a little …

White Chocolate & Limoncello Truffles

Christmas is a time for chocolate, no? (you know, alongside all the family stuff, presents & feasts). There’s nothing more comforting than delving into a selection box in your pyjamas… just when you thought that eating another bite of food was impossible, there’s always room for a bit of chocolate. It’s always nice to give …

Lemon & Raspberry Cake

It’s hard to imagine summertime without raspberries, one of the sweetest & most popular of all the berries (& for good reason too). In season right throughout summer from late June to early September, they’re a popular garden fruit because they’re just so easy to grow. Raspberries aren’t too fussy, just keep them watered, with enough …

Courgette Jam

It would seem that my mission to use up an entire garden’s worth of courgettes isn’t over just yet (I still have around 8 sat on my worktop right now & we’re having courgette for tea). I would say lesson learned, don’t grow so many damn courgettes next year, but truth be told I’ve enjoyed …

Courgette & Lemon Muffins

How many courgettes are too many? A question I’ve been asking myself quite a lot over the past few weeks as I’ve found my kitchen overrun with plump little (or not in some cases!) ronde de nice courgettes. Lesson most definitely learned for next year, this variety is very easy to germinate, so maybe don’t …

Lemon & Limoncello Marmalade

Potted Campania Is there anything more summery than large, colourful citrus fruits? While I’m partial do a bit of lemon most of the year round, there’s something about this bitter-sweet, sunshine yellow fruit that never fails to promote thoughts of summertime when I either look at or taste it. Earlier in the summer, this lucky …

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 …

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

One Of The Greats Afternoon tea, cake sales, summer fetes, the local coffee shop, all of these places have at least one thing in common, alongside the wee fairy cakes & chunks of cheese & pineapple on sticks, you’re guaranteed to find some form of lemon drizzle or poppy seed cake on offer. No self-respecting …
