I’m sure I’ve mentioned my family popcorn addiction in the past so this festive gingerbread version is going down a storm here!
With an alleged heatwave on the way it’s time to share my Brownies and Ice Cream Cones with you. A waffle icecream cone with chocolate brownie baked inside, topped with a good scoop of vanilla ice cream! It’s also my contribution to Waitrose’s #TasteOfSummer campaign.
Stork are launching a campaign to get the country baking for Easter and raise support for Great Ormond Street Hospital – I know you guys need no encouragement to bake so how about rustling up some Easter Nest Cupcakes and #BakeSomeoneHappy!
What could be better than a chocolate pudding with lashings of chocolate sauce? Well in my book, not too much! To add to the fact that this choc pud is just fantastic you can whip it up and have it in the oven in 10 minutes flat, it really is that easy.
These seem to be all over the place in the shops at Christmas time so I thought it was time I figured out how we do them at home – and it’s easier than I thought. You will need a sugar thermometer and a silicone snowflake mould (or any other kind of Christmassy silicone mould if you prefer)
They are easier to make in a stand mixer if you have one, it makes the hands juggling a lot easier but it can be done with an electric hand mixer too.
How much fun are these? When Lindt sent me a chocolate delivery (yes I know, that’s a great delivery to get) I knew I had to come up with something Christmassy – there was no way I was melting those Reindeer down for truffles!
Ooh hoo hoo! Tomorrow is Pancake Day! Always an event in our house, everyone wants a turn at flipping, tossing, pouring the batter, everyone ends up with a burn from the frying pan, tears as they’re not as good as flipping pancakes as they imagined in their head and arguments break out randomly in the frustration of having to wait in a queue of 5 for actually getting a pancake on their plate!
This was the birthday bake of request from my youngest, Fin, just recently. Lots of you asked for the recipe so of course here it is. Whilst not strictly baking, I’m sure you’ll forgive me! I’m including instructions to make the toffee layer from sugar/butter and cream so you don’t have to use condensed milk if you don’t want to.
