Passion Fruit Doughnuts

Who really needs an excuse to devour one of these sugary delights in one sitting?! There’s something quite nostalgic for me about doughnuts. Trips to Dunn’s Bakery in Crouch End as a child were a rare, but magical, treat. I vividly remember all the wonderful pastries and doughnuts set…

Blueberry Muffins

If I’m honest with you, I hadn’t planned a lot for the early May bank holiday. I’m usually that person who loves to be on the move, doing something 24/7. Even though that’s great most of the time, it can also be a curse. Am I keeping up with…

The ultimate chocolate chip cookie

 
 

My distaste of milk started from a rather young age, when we’d holiday to France; the three petits filous in the back of the car, winding each other up and giggling until our stomachs hurt and our eyes were streaming with happy tears. Our fidgety bottoms would wriggle around…

Paleo Bread

 
texans always seem to know best when it comes to food and I’m not just talking about that fried chicken and waffle or meat stack they’ve slapped on the grill. Oh no. I’m talking the Texans that know that good food doesn’t always have to be naughty. I sneakily stole this recipe…

bank holidays are few and far between and so when one comes along, it should be mightily treasured, full of adventure, smiles, laughter and above all, time spent with crazy good people. Having prepared my Dad for the mischief my brother and I would no doubt be up to in order…

White Chocolate & Pistachio Cake

london was in full bloom this weekend. Temperatures soaring above 20C officially announced that every single British person should whip out their summer wardrobe in an instant. Minus the suncream, for the brave. My priorities were somewhat askew when the first things that came to mind were cake, prosecco and…

Sticky Gingerbread

waking up to golden shards of sunshine seeping through your blinds is a little life pleasure I wholly enjoy, whether the sky is bright and the air crisp or the heat of summer has enveloped the city. I was lucky enough to take over the top room in my parent’s house…

Carrot Cake

The Ultimate Carrot Cake

it’s been a long time coming since I made another carrot cake; the reason being that, even if it’s my favourite cake, there are so many more exciting and unusual things I want to give a shot. This week however, I had no choice, as it seemed…
