Hi, hello. I’m so sorry that it has been a year since my last blog post but today I am BACK and I have a very exciting recipe for you guys! Easter is coming up so soon and it’s one of my favourite occasions to think up recipes for. This Blackberry and Earl Grey Hot Cross Bun Pudding would be … Read More

My Favourite Easter Recipes

To me, Easter is a special time of year. I always feel the transition of seasons strongly in April. Summer is transitioning into shorter, cooler autumn days. Mangoes and peaches are out, but apples and pears are now in season. This new season coziness just makes me want to get in the kitchen and bake. I have a crazy urge … Read More

Bill Granger’s Coconut Bread

One of my little projects this year is going back through fifteen years of blog archives and updating some of my very favourite recipes. I started my blog as a graphic design college student back in 2007. I was just getting into baking, blogging and photography and never imagined that I would still be doing all these things so many … Read More

Fruit Mince Wreath

I used to have very strong opinions about fruit mince pies – I hated them! But a couple of years ago I cracked the code on fruit mince and turned them into something that I loved. Making several batches of fruit mince pies every Christmas has now become a tradition. I love giving them as homemade Christmas gifts, packaged in … Read More

No Knead Hot Cross Buns

I love baking, but I don’t often make my own Hot Cross Buns at Easter time. I honestly prefer making Cinnamon Rolls or even this Hot Cross Bun Pull Apart Bread… but I think that is all about to change because I’ve stumbled across the holy grail of recipes – No Knead Hot Cross Buns!  This is exactly as the … Read More

Hot Cross Bun Pull Apart Bread with Cream Cheese Glaze

I’ve said it before, but something about autumn and Easter time just makes me want to turn on the oven and get my hands into a bowl of dough. I love the smell of yeast, sweet spices, and delicious aromas coming from my oven. I love the whole process – mixing, kneading, waiting, rolling, baking. It’s totally therapeutic, one of … Read More

Sticky Date Rolls with Salted Caramel Sauce

Hot Cross Buns have been in the shops since Boxing Day – literally – but I haven’t had a single one yet. I’ll admit to a little prickle of indignation every time I saw them before Easter season began. I think they’re much more special when enjoyed for a week or two, and then put away until the next year. … Read More

Blueberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast

On the weekend of my birthday this year, we sat around my best friend’s kitchen drinking red wine. We excitedly booked my flight to New York and agreed that it would be a year to ‘do fun shit’. And only three months into 25, I’ve certainly managed a lot of fun shit. A lot has changed. I mean, a lot. … Read More

Spicy Chocolate Doughnuts

So perhaps 5 posts in 5 days was a little bit ambitious! Life and work got in the way a little last week, but I still have two recipes left to share from my week of spicy birthday posts and they’re both pretty cracking, if I do say so myself! Of course I had to do a recipe that combined … Read More

Chai Spiced Rolls with Cinnamon Glaze

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever figure this whole grown up work/life balance thing out. The last few months have been crazy with work, freelance and managing three blogs (PS, you should all go check out the other two) but also so rewarding with a promotion to Senior Designer (!) and getting to work on some great projects with my … Read More
