Blood Orange and Cranberry Loaf Cake

This Blood Orange and Cranberry Loaf Cake is the perfect afternoon tea cake. It’s full of citrus flavour, loaded with tart cranberries and drizzled with a sweet pink glaze. So many of my recipes have been inspired by the ingredients that I happen to have on hand. I don’t tend to impulse purchase clothes or handbags – I impulse buy … 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

Banana Biscoff Cheesecake Muffins

After a little break from baking, I’m back today with these delicious Banana and Biscoff Cheesecake Muffins. Because is it even lockdown if you don’t make banana bread or something like it? I don’t think so. These muffins are so delicious! The banana muffin itself is pretty classic, but I’ve taken it up several notches with Biscoff Cheesecake filling AND … Read More

Mini Chai Poached Pear Cakes with Chai Creme Anglaise

Autumn and the transition of the seasons always makes me want to get into the kitchen to cook and bake. I don’t even mind washing up if it means I can warm up my perpetually cold hands! There’s absolutely nothing better than the warming spices in a cup of chai on a cold afternoon. I seem to have a habit of … Read More

It’s full of fresh bursting blueberries and covered in a tangy cream cheese glaze flavoured with lots of lemon and delicate thyme leaves.  If you’ve been reading for a while, you might … Read More

Flourless Orange and Almond Cake (Gluten Free)

At this time of year I would usually be elbow deep in cinnamon roll dough with warm spice aromas coming from the oven and filling my apartment. But you may have noticed that 2020 is not like other years. There is the biggest worldwide crisis in a century happening affecting almost everything about day to day life. My heart goes … Read More

Peach Crumble Cake

Can you still say Happy New Year when it’s almost the end of January? I think it’s ok since this is my first post of the year. I took an (unexpected) extended break from my blog and social media after the holidays. It was actually really nice to recharge my creativity and cook for fun without thinking about recipe testing! … Read More

Blueberry Crumble Cake

Today’s recipe is one that I have loved for years – Blueberry Crumble Cake. I first made it on the blog in 2010 and have baked it several more times over the years. But looking at the really old photo made me cringe a little, and I wanted to update it and share here it again. Or maybe I just … Read More

Mini Choc Malt Marbled Bundt Cakes

I had so many ideas for great Easter recipes this year, but in the last few weeks time completely got away from me. So I’m hopping (get it?) in here very quickly with a few days to go before Easter. If you need a quick and easy homemade dessert, I’ve got your back! I was recently decluttering my photography props … Read More

Triple Chocolate Brownie Skillet with Hot Fudge Sauce

When I started baking almost 10 years ago now, I used to completely ignore recipe instructions to preheat the oven. I had no idea what mise en place was. I’d never bring my butter or eggs to room temperature before baking a cake. I hardly ever measured dry ingredients accurately. I was often so eager to start baking that I … Read More
