Simple Chocolate Dipped Shortbread

This is a super simple recipe and perfect if you have little hands helping out. They also make great presents so if you are thinking of doing hampers for Christmas this year, why not add a batch of these?

🎅🎄Christmas Cake🎄🎅

Don’t shoot the messenger but Christmas is coming and fast! If you want to enjoy a traditional Christmas Cake with your loved ones this year, you need to start the preparations soon! We are talking really soon, this weekend would be ideal!

The reason we need to make it so far in advance is because it needs time to sit, be fed with alcohol and mature. This cake is easy to make and just requires you to soak the fruit in brandy the night before and then mix and bake in the morning. By morning the raisins, currents and cranberries will have plumped up adding an extra tasty touch

Apple, pear and blackberry crumble

This crumble is delicious and the perfect dessert on a cold day! I also like to make this in individual ramekins and enjoy it for breakfast topped with a spoonful of yoghurt, coconut yoghurt works perfectly!

Chocolate and Chilli Halloween Cupcakes

I posted the Chocolate and Orange recipe recently as one of the Treats for a Halloween Trick or Treat Cupcake Platter. Today I have gone with a TRICK and made these Chocolate and Chilli Cupcakes.

Chocolate Orange Halloween Cupcakes

The Halloween posts are finally here and over the next few days I will be showing you a few different cupcake designs and flavours so that you can create your own trick or treat platter! To start us off I have gone for an obvious TREAT and picked Chocolate Orange Cupcakes.

Our favourite sourdough bread

This sourdough is easy, please don’t be scared by the thought of making your own bread. Anyone can do it! You need to cook your loaf in a dish with a lid, I have tried with both a big le creuset pot and a large tagine.

Vegan Banana Bread

This banana bread is delicious and very moreish, I make it for guests at the B&B all the time, often for breakfast and they say they would be none the wiser had I not told them. So whether you are vegan or not, why not give this a try as a new breakfast go to?

Hot chocolate cupcakes

It’s been grey and rainy here today and I really felt like a hot chocolate. What’s better than a hot chocolate? Hot Chocolate Cupcakes! They are super chocolatey and the marshmallow icing is delicious!

Chocolate and Salted Caramel Cupcakes

These decadent chocolate cupcakes are filled with a delicious homemade caramel, it’s a match made in heaven! The cupcakes themselves are very simple and quick to make. I iced these with a whipped chocolate buttercream and topped with a piece of dairy milk caramel.
