Chelsea Buns

October 4, 2012


I’ve harped on about kanelbulle since I first met Alex, yet none have ever materialize. In part this was because I already have 2 posts about cinnamon buns in varying guises & I was struggle with how to get away with a 3rd. Alex once asked me if he would ever end up being mentioned […]

October’s Fresh From The Oven Challenge – Mixed Flour Seeded Loaf (Leftovers Loaf)

October 1, 2012


Like many avid bakers; I can’t resist the urge to try a new recipe. This in turn often requires buying a different variety of flour. Once the recipe has been made, appreciated, consumed in its entirety, it deposits half a bag of flour in the pantry & so the collection begins to accumulated. The other […]

Coffee & Walnut Cake – Dear Love Blog’s 2nd Birthday

July 30, 2012


I have a confession, for someone who bakes as much as I do I don’t really have much of a sweet tooth. A slice of cake is kind of me done, which seems result in everyone else I know getting fatter as I try to off load the rest so I can get on & […]

Chocolate Guinness Cake – The End of 9 Months of Silence.

July 11, 2012


What a grim old day it is, me & the cat are snuggled up in my room both tentatively glancing at the down pour outside. Thames Water have published a statement on their website thanking everyone for doing their bit to help lift the hose pipe ban, I expect most of the work was done […]

We Should Cocoa – Chipotle Brownies

October 13, 2011


This month Chocolette challenged us to pair chocolate with chilli. How fitting that this week is both Chocolate Week & National Curry Week, it’s also London Cocktail Week but that’s a whole other story. I battled with what to make this month: Chilli Chocolate Fudge Cake with Lime Water Icing, Chocolate, Orange & Chilli Cake, Chilli […]

Random Recipes – Heston Blumenthal’s Madeleines

September 27, 2011


This is my first contribution to Random Recipes & I picked an easy month to start. This months challenge was to randomly select a recipe from the inevitable pile of cuttings & print outs once horded then fast forgotten. Well it was a safe bet it would be something I choose, so therefore most likely […]

July’s Fresh From The Oven Challenge – Piadina

July 28, 2011


I had the great honour of hosting this months Fresh From The Oven challenge. I went back & forth a bit about what we should make before I finally decided on Piadina. When I was 15 I went to Milan for the first time. It wasn’t a particularly memorable but on the 2nd day in […]

June’s Fresh From The Oven Challenge – Sandwich Loaf

June 28, 2011


This month Jo from Jo’s Kitchen challenged bakers to make a sandwich loaf using Michel Roux Jr. recipe from the BBC TV series Great British Food Revival. This will most likely sound a tad bizarre but, I’ve been baking bread for 6 years now, edible, better than you can buy in a shop bread for […]

Carrot, Orange & Pistachio Cake

June 22, 2011


There are two men I am extraordinarily fond of yet have never met. Dan Lepard & Nigel Slater. I discovered Dan Lepard because of a Carrot Cake recipe which was No. 47 in the Observer Food Monthly’s 50 Best Recipes Ever published in February 2009. I’d never had carrot cake but figured if there was […]

White Chocolate Blondies with Blueberries & Macadamia Nuts

June 16, 2011


I can’t say I’d ever thought of making Blondies, I’ve always sat firmly in the Brownie camp. In fact before baking these I’d taken sides without ever trying the alternative. But it was Luke’s leaving do I had only recently baked him Turkish Delight & Pistachio Brownies & in honesty I wasn’t really sure if […]
