What delectable sweet treats!
As a keen baker, I've always been a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off and one of my all time favourite contestants has to be the wonderful Nadyia Hussein. A fellow Leeds girl, I loved her warm, dow...
Cake always tastes so much sweeter when it's in aid of charity.
You can't beat a good chocolate cake. Sometimes the classics are just the best, aren't they?
Cupcake + a good brew is the perfect combo.
We love, love, love jelly in this house - it’s just so incredibly nostalgic and delicious isn't it?! A dessert we all grew up with, and one we enjoy giving our kids!
Those who follow this blog know that I love to cook-I mean REALLY, really love to cook but if I'm entirely honest (and I am- being Honest Mum and all)-it's baking which absolutely steals my heart every single time.
Knowing what to feed your kids can be a minefield for parents. Naturally as parents we want to feed our children healthy meals packed full of vitamins, calcium and other vital nutrients while still offering them the odd sweet treat and even occasional *whispers Maccy D's!
Any sweets treats that are acceptable to eat at breakfast are a winner in my eyes. Muffins are one of my favourite foods - especially when served straight out of the oven, hot, fluffy and oh so good. And nothing makes me happier than baking with my kids, particularly my 5 year old Oliver who adores cooking and baking.
Anyone who lives or has lived in Leeds, will know that Arts Cafe's sticky toffee pudding is the stuff of legends!
I have proclaimed my love of all things French before on my blog and this also extends to French desserts! In particular, I just 'j-adore' poached pears in white wine and I always indulge on this delicious sweet treat when I make my annual pilgrimage to Cannes Film Festival in the South of France . Pears can be poached in anything from red wine to caramel sauce. For this recipe, I poached my pears using a bottle of Isla Negra Sauvignon Blanc Semillon (2014), but any white wine will do. Or you could even use champagne if you're feeling fancy!
This recipe might be gluten-free but let me start by writing they're not calorie free sadly however I've used honey instead of sugar and high quality cocoa powder so they really are a pretty healthy treat that won't skyrocket your blood sugar! As it's Valentine's Day, these really are a perfect offering for a loved one, your kids included of course, or simply for yourself (self-love is important too you know, hey shush you naughty ones at the back!) So, what you waiting for? Go get your bake on and treat yourself...
