AD | Pasg Hapus pawb! (Happy Easter Everyone!) 🐣 . @whitworthsuk very kindly sent me some of their lovely dried fruit and nuts last week to do a bit of Easter baking and so I made this very easy (and very scoffable...) Mini Egg Tiffin Cake! With a ginger biscuit base and a creamy chocolatey topping, it's perfect for munching on after you've polished off your Easter roast 👌🏻 . - Ingredients - • 160g Juice Locked Raisins • 80g Chopped Apricots • 80g Chopped, Toasted Nuts • 225g Ginger Nut Biscuits (crushed) • 150g Salted Butter • 30g Caster Sugar • 50ml Golden Syrup • 25g Cocoa • 100g Milk Chocolate • 100g Dark Chocolate • 1tbsp Vegetable Oil • Mini Eggs to decorate! . 1. Grease a 20cm loose base baking tin. 2. Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa and golden syrup over a low heat until combined. Pour in the crushed biscuits and dried fruit. 3. stir together, then press into the base of your cake tin. 4. Melt the chocolate, stir in the oil and then pour over the biscuit base. 5. Decorate with mini eggs and nuts, then pop it in the fridge to set! 6. SCOFF.
Two of my favourite things 💛 . . Spent the afternoon sunning myself in a beer garden with a massive burger and just basically being a great big, British Bank Holiday cliché. How about you?
Four Day Weekend! 🙌🏻 . . Kicked things off this afternoon "Gin-wagging" (...is that a thing, can that be a thing?) at Gin and Juice with the lovely @thisgirlisblog, where we mostly talked about our badly-behaved (but beloved!) doggos @bunglethegolden and @astridthedal 🐶🐶
Take me baaaaaaaaaack. 🙏🏻 . Oh hey, this rando is my husband in case you were wondering.
#AD | Eating Hole Foods is so, so important you know... 🍩🍩🍩 . Back when I lived in London, I used to treat myself to a Krispy Kreme whenever I passed through Paddington Station on the way home from Cardiff. It was always my little "Back to London" pick-me-up (y'know, doughnut worry, be happy!); they're my favourite! So I was over the moon when @KrispyKremeuk asked me to come and check out their brand new rocket store in @mcarthurglenbridgend yesterday - the very first of its kind in Wales! Oh and keep an eye out on Krispy Kreme's Facebook page because in May they're going to be having a "Decorate your own Doughnut" competition, with a £50 voucher up for grabs. That's a looooooot of dough to spend on doughnuts my friend 😉 #kkbridgend . Oh hey, hands up - who's staying up for Game of Thrones tonight? And hands up who's going to have their fingers in their ears for the next 24 hours? 🙄
