A good glug of maple syrup and some brown sugar makes this nutty, syrupy, coffee(-y) cake the perfect bake for Father’s Day! 🙂
This Strawberry Picnic Cake one of those bakes that looks super fancy but actually involves barely any effort – if you’re a dab hand with a wooden spoon and can slice a strawb, then you’ve got this.
Firmly on the Blood Orange bandwagon and no sign of jumping off! Last week I made this really easy upside down cake and topped it with blood oranges. It’s sticky and sweet, and if you choose the juiciest blood oranges then you’ll get the prettiest topping. The hardest part is making the caramel – but really, as long as you’re not tempted to stir, it’s a doddle. 🙂
Happy Saint Dwynwen’s Day! Or, for the uninitiated, Welsh Valentines Day! I went into a little bit more detail on why exactly we celebrate Valentines Day a little earlier than the rest of the world here in Wales in this post (along with a little recipe for Blood Orange Doughnuts 🙂 ) – but it’s basically a Game of Thrones-esque story about a time when Kings had 24 daughters and princesses routinely ran off into the woods and turned their lovers into blocks of ice. As you do. 😉
I make a big batch of these Christmas Biscuits every year for family and friends to scoff with a cuppa when they stop by over Christmas – but I get bored of making the same sugar cookies, so this year, I decided to fiddle around with the base recipe and come up with a few alternative flavours including Cinnamon, Maple and Pecan and – my personal favourite – Pistachio. Yum! 🙂
