Treacle Steamed Pudding

So as you may have seen, I have been followed the GBBO weekly challenge. This is where I baked along with the TV show just for fun really.

I did this last year and I really enjoyed it and this year it has been just as rewarding!

I wanted to talk to you a bit about one of my bakes. For week 4 of the challenge, I made Millionaire shortbread. I ended up using a mixture of recipes and therefore wanted to combine the two to help demonstrate how I got to the end result.

The Blind – A.F.Brady

My 2017 Great British Bake Off Challenge – Round Up

So this is is, The Great British Bake Off has ended for another year and I thought it was time to take a look back at all of the bakes I have made this year to see how it has helped me get back into the kitchen more. Truth be told, I have loved it….

My Husband the Stranger – Rebecca Done

Ok, so here’s the truth I got this book on a whim online. I needed one more to get my Amazon delivery offer and so I picked this after looking at a few covers. Yup total whim as I didn’t even read the blurb…I don’t think. For this reason alone, it’s been on my TBR…

October NetGalley Picks

So I have been wanting to update my blog for a while now. Its hard to think of new content which you may be interested in. So if you don’t want this and prefer to have something else let me know.Β In my head – this will be a monthly update. Mainly because I don’t tend…

Week Ten – Iced Ginger Biscuits

Week Ten aka the Final. I can’t believe that its all over and there will be no more Tuesday night bake off. This also means the end of my weekly challenges, which I have grown to love. It was a challenging week in the tent, but we all knew it would be. The bakers were…

October Wrap Up

OK October – where did you go? Its like I have blinked and you decided to race past. I have however done a LOT of baking this month, which I am happy about. I love how Bake off being on the tv gets me all involved and happy. However saying that my reading has taken…

Week Nine – Orange Craquelin Choux Buns

Week Nine in the tent was Semi Final week. I can’t believe how quick it has all gone. Who will be crowned this year’s winner – we will soon find out because (ideally) you should be reading this on the day of the final. I could make a guess to the winner – but I…

No-One Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day – Tracy Bloom

Ok guys, say hello to my first christmas book of 2017 and to top it off it made me laugh on several occasions. I was very lucky to be selected to receive this on NetGalley after requesting it and I knew it had to be my first christmas book of the year. I mean look…

Week Eight – Cumberland Rum Nicky

Week Eight in the tent was a sad week, and if I am honest it is one in which I feel will be remembered for a while. You see, Liam got kicked out the tent and I loved Liam. He was just full of energy so I hope he keeps baking. Anyhow, he didn’t have…

We Were On A Break – Lindsey Kelk

Ok so, I’m not too sure how I feel about this book. It started off great, laugh out loud great 17 pages in and then it all got a bit serious. Liv is on holiday with her boyfriend (Adam) of three years, for two weeks in Mexico. We meet Liv and Adam on the last…

Week Seven – Pizza

Week Seven in the tent brought us Italian week. Now I have to be honest, I was not excited for Italian week and being even more honest now I wasn’t impressed by it either. I was disappointed for the first time this year. Sad news. It just didn’t excite me, to me the whole point…
