My Chocamocharetti Cake

Picture this, a wheat free, chocolate, almond and coffee flavoured moist ‘cake’ that melts in your mouth and goes perfectly with a morning coffee or with a glass of milk. How did this come about I ask yourselves? Well I was spring cleaning my cupboards and came up with some ground almonds, a load of…

Walnut and mixed fruit oatmeal cookies

There are times when only something sweet will do, and one of those times is today, as I’m hungover and the Dazzler isn’t feeling fantastic. I’ve already got the bread rising so thought I’d use the heating up the oven time to make cookies and had a root around in cupboards to use up some…

My Victoria Sandwich post

I thought I would try baking something I’ve yet to try…. The Humble Victoria Sandwich As championed by everyone from Mary Berry to Delia Smith and every other chef worth their salt. (Even Nigella tweeted a pic of one the other day!!) Why, no doubt you are asking, have I never tried this before? After…

Today I used my loaf…and baked a wholemeal one!!

It’s a windy Sunday with not much going on and neither of us were much into heading out so we popped on a movie and settled into an afternoon vegging. About ten minutes in I realised we had no niceness in the house and in a bid to keep the Dazzler on his health kick…

I’m going through Diabetic Hell!! I’m Making Cupcakes!!

You see today is my Flabulous Nephew, Rufus’s, 3rd birthday and I have made his birthday cake since he…

My chocolate fudge cake

My new job has inspired me to start a weekly bakeoff at work and I thought the best way of doing that would be to inspire them with my ( ok Nigellas) signature chocolate fudge cake. Now I say it’s Nigellas because I thought that’s where I got the recipe but now I’ve just tried…

Easy Nutella Brownies

Ok so you will begin to see a pattern linked to the fact that I have a new job…and so not enough time to do all the baking I would like!! Saw these on FB and had to share…. 3 ingredient Nutella Brownies. (4 if you include the nutty topping!) full instructions below Sooo easy…

You give me manky apples… I give you applesauce cake!!

I had the most fantastic bank holiday weekend up in London!!! Not only did I stay up all night TWO nights in a row, but I got to reconnect with an old friend, act like a teenager and revisit one of my old stomping grounds….the Vauxhall Tavern which, thanks to the Flabulous Amy Lamé and…

Choc & Cherry Hot Cross Buns

I was tempted by adverts for Marks & Spencer’s chocolate hot cross buns for this easter but they were sooo expensive and I wanted to bake so I thought I’d try and make my own!! Unfortunately all the recipes I saw online had candied peel in, which I detest, so I thought about using maraschino…

No Added Sugar Banana Bread

I’ve been a foodie for as long as I can remember but it’s not until the last year or so that I’ve really got into baking. It all started with making a birthday cake for my nephew’s 1st birthday that really got me in to the chemistry involved in baking. I really started to make…
