Week One: Fruit Cake

I actually can’t believe that we are at that time of year when bake off is back. Don’t get me wrong, I love this time of year as it means I spend more time in the kitchen baking along with the show but still how fast is this year going? Anyway, week one in the…

Week Seven – Vegan Cake

I have to say that this week I didn’t swoon at the TV and watch every moment of the show fully. If anything it bored me and that says a lot when a cake fell over!! I don’t know why but it’s just not got the same feeling for me like last year. That said,…

September Bakes

September has been a busy month for baking thanks to the return of the Great British Bake Off! Whilst I am not overly convinced about this year’s show in all, I do enjoy watching and baking along weekly and the fact that I am baking more. So what have I made. As it’s bake off…

Week Four – Bryony’s Treacle Tart Roulade

Week Four in the tent brought us Dessert Week. Whilst I enjoy watching dessert week, its a bit vague in my opinion and basically anything can be a dessert. Basically its not my favourite week all in all. The challenge. This week, I decided to make the roulade. I was not sure which one I…

August Bakes

August, another month that has flown by. It was also the month Great British Bake Off retuned to our screens. Its very exciting because it means that I will be baking more and these will be more interesting! Gin and Tonic Cake Now, some may say I didn’t make this because there is no photographic…

Week Two – Tray Bake

Week Two in the tent was Cake Week! As you know, I love to make cake so was excited for this week. Saying that strangely I wasn’t blown away, personally it was probably the ‘challenges’ rather than the outcomes. The Challenge. This week, I was debating what I wanted to make. I wanted to give…

May Bakes

Ok I won’t lie to you here, I thought oh well I haven’t baked that much this will be a short post. Good job I like to take pictures of everything I bake because it turns out I baked 4 things in May. Not a lot granted, but more than I thought. Pancakes. You may…

My sisters birthday cake

At the end of November my beautiful sisters turned 25. To celebrate I knew I wanted to make them a cake. Fairly early on I had an idea in my head, which was to have a mixture of their favourite movies as kids. Toy Story and 101 Dalmatians. I just wan’t sure how it was…

Cinnamon Sticky Buns

You may remember how my last recipe post talked about how I stepped back into the weekend and made a cake, prepped cookie dough and also spent a long time making Cinnamon buns only to burn them.

In truth, the recipe was right all the way up to the oven section where I burnt them. In hind sight I should have checked on them before time was up but I busied myself in cleaning and only went back to the oven when the timer was up. Even looking back now at the recipe I can see that it says ‘for about 25minutes’. So guys always read & re-read the recipe!
