• Lemon Crumble Bars

    If you live in the UK, There are 2 things you can’t have failed to have noticed this summer: 1. The Olympics are nearly upon us – yep, London 2012 will be opening in just a weeks time. 2. It hasn’t stopped raining for what seems like forever!!   Firstly the Olympics. Personally I’m very excited. We get TV Olympic coverage at a time of day I’m not in bed, sleeping. But then I don’t live near the Olympic Village. I do however, have a ‘proper’ job at a big Dance Shoe Company, and the factory and offices are based in Hackney. Oh…. My…. Life…..how much things have changed in…

  • All in 1 Cake Bars

    Firstly I must apologise for being MIA for nearly 2 months. My ‘proper’ job has been crazy busy, but hopefully it’s now all calmed down (well for the time being anyway). Anyway, now I’M BACK!!!!   I love being busy, but there is a down side – the lack of baking time! Baking is my relaxation, so on top of being busy, I feel extra stressed because I haven’t had time to put on my pinny, roll up my sleeves and get the mixer out. To celebrate getting back in the kitchen I have made something, quick, easy, yummy, crumby and colourful. Quite often I see recipes which include a…

  • The Egg-stra Sunday Supplement

    Well, what a week. The New Year is certainly up and running. So to recap: We’ve had Raspberry and Chocolate Cupcake Bakes And Individual Cakes in a Cup Next week…..drum roll please, I’m hoping to bring you Diet Coke Chicken, and Vanilla and Beetroot Cupcakes. But I’m apologising now if that doesn’t happen because I’m off to work in Bournemouth for the week, and I can’t guarantee the hotel will have wifi! Since starting this blog, I have become obsessed with other food blogs. I’ve got hundreds (if not hundreds then definitely loads and loads) of blogs on my reader and it has become an enjoyable habit to sit down…

  • Your Own Individual Cake in Cup

    Do you ever get those moments when you NEED a cake? I do! At these times, mass produced, shop bought cakes just wont do. I’m talking about a NEED for fresh, out of the oven, home-baked cake!!! But, mixing up a batch of cupcakes or a Victoria sponge would be too much, and once the NEED for cake has been satisfied you’re left with too much cake which you’re either forced to eat or give away. Making too much isn’t such a bad thing, excess cake is never a bad thing, but with this small recipe you’ll have just the right amount of cake AND as a bonus it doesn’t…

  • Weekly Round-up with a Cookie Cake Bar

    This week has been mad…MAD I tell you!! There has been Baby Shower Cupcakes, a new order from the local farm shop (The Oak Tree Farm), a wedding booking for February 2012, a last minute birthday Giant Cupcake, Cookies for our best friends the Smiths and Festive Flavour Cookie Cake Bars – just because! YEP, I’ve been a very very busy bee!! In fact I’m now considering postponing Christmas until after Christmas, because I’m not sure I’ve got time to fit it in. This week coming is equally hectic, with cupcake orders, cookie orders, Christmas gifts and Christmas lunch and food to prepare……..but at least I’m not bored eh?!! This…

  • Is it a cake?…..Is it a chocolate?…..

    YEP, it’s BOTH!!! Chocolate Cake Truffles! I predict 99% of people like chocolate cake! I like it. I’m not a lover of it, in fact, if there was a Chocolate Fudge Cake and a Victoria Sponge in front of me, I’d go with the Victoria Sponge every time. But if there was only Chocolate Fudge on offer I wouldn’t say no! BUT, put a Chocolate Cake Truffle in front of me and it would be gone in a flash! Christmas is mad in our family….and I mean mad!!! We have our big family Christmas on Boxing Day, so everyone can see in-laws on Christmas Day. For about 30 minutes on…
