October Bakes

Its been another busy month of baking thanks to the Great British Bake off and I hope that it won’t stop just because the show has ended. Fingers crossed.

Looking at the pictures, it was a very beige looking month with a lot of pastry…not like me really – silly bake off challenge!

Puits D’Amour


I have to admit, I didn’t rate these much. They look pretty gross and because I don’t own a blow torch they just didn’t have the desired effect. I wouldn’t really make them again and even though I was told they were nice, I am pretty sure people were being nice to me.

Vegan Cake


This was a big win. Its a cake I will make again and it was just delicious. Have to admit I was a bit weary of making a vegan cake more because its methods I have not used before and that made me weary. I followed a recipe from The Little Blog of Vegan and well I would reccomend. I still dream about that cake.



These were a lot taster than they looked in the pictures. The pastry was fairly simple to make and I liked using a different method, even if I hated the fact that it took me forever to make. That said, they went down really well at work. Would I make them again…I guess that just depends on me and my mood when it comes to making pastry.

Chocolate Eclairs

These were a nice easy bake actually. I would like to work on my pipping skills but the taste was delicious – even if I do say so myself. I don’t normally eat my own food but I had two eclairs in one sitting so must have done something right. Yes I would make these again.


As soon as I saw them on the signature I knew that’s what I would bake. I didn’t make anything fancy but hey they were huge and tasted delicious! Would try to make them again for sure!

Christmas Cake

I follow Victoria from Foodie for Thought across all platforms and noticed on Instagram she was making her Christmas Cake this month. So I decided to bake along with her. I followed her recipe and my oven meant that it was baked within 2 1/2 hours. Now all I have to do is remember to feed the cake alcohol every week until Christmas…wish me luck.

Oh and would recommend you go give Victoria a follow she is lovely and her bakes look incredible!

Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie

Not really a bake as such, but as the Bake off is going it could be featured on pie week so I thought I would include. Dan and I made chicken, ham and leek pie one Monday night using leftovers and it was amazing so thought I would share!

Well thats it for October – lets see what November brings bake wise shall we,

Until next time,
