Granola Bars


Something lovely again for you this Friday, Granola Bars – a recipe pinched from a fabulous friend and I’ve only fiddled a little bit with it – honest!

Packed with seeds and fruits these are just delicious.  Please turn a blind eye to the butter and sugar and enjoy!

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

A traditional cake but still one of my favourites, it’s good for feeding the masses too!


225ml sunflower oil

3 eggs, large

120g golden syrup

150g soft light brown sugar

240g self-raising flour

1½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp allspice (if you don’t have allspice you can just leave it out!)

Golden Syrup Loaf Cake

Golden Syrup Loaf Cake

Whilst playing around with egg-free recipes I made this cake, quite by accident.  It wasn’t what I was intending it to be but it’s fast become a firm family favourite here, it’s egg-free too!
(If you’re looking for egg-free recipes be sure to try my best ever ginger cake)
You may well be wondering why I’m giving you quantities for two loaf cakes here but trust me, even two isn’t enough.
