Raspberry & Rose Pavlova

When choosing what to bake for Mother's Day this weekend, I decided to pick a recipe from my trusty Mary Berry's Baking Bible. Having never made meringue (successfully) before, I decided a recipe from Aunt Bezza is one I could trust.

Easy Seed Loaf

Back to basics this week with my go-to loaf recipe and a few of my bread tips.

This crusty loaf involves very little effort and is very easy to change up the flavours.

Classic Car Boot Sale

I ventured over the weekend in search of fancy cars and Bleekcer Street burgers.
I wish I had my very own pastel shaded Cadillac, but for now I guess I'll just have to spend a sunny weekend morning posing next to them...

Salted Caramel & Peanut Butter Millionaire's Shortbread

I have a confession. I've never made caramel.

Usually I cheat and pop a splash of caramel essence into my bakes, or use Bonne Maman's confiture de caramel. However, making it myself has been at the top of my recipe list for some time. I kept putting it off in fear of swishing molten sugar around a pan and it all being a disaster. I've seen Masterchef, even the clever ones struggle sometimes.

Maple Syrup & Coffee Pancake Cupcakes

After a bit of a foodie week last week, I have high hopes for the same again this week. Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday after all...if you needed an excuse.
