Coffee Buns

In the interest of being upfront, there’s something I should mention about this recipe for Coffee Buns before we get started… They contain no coffee. None at all. Let me explain…

Paradise Slice

Easy recipe for Paradise Slice tray bake from Baking with Granny. With pastry, currants, cherries, jam and cake.

It was a first for me to be inspired to bake something, purely because my sons have become obsessed with George Ezra! Of course Paradise Slice has been around a lot longer than the song Paradise. This wasn’t a bake I was really familiar with other than by name but when I seen the recipe […]

Yule Log

When it comes to favourite Christmas desserts, not much can beat a traditional Christmas Pudding.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie recipe from Baking with Granny. Buttery shortcrust pastry with sweet apples inside.

I never really appreciated an Apple Pie until recent years. It’s something Granny would make an abundance of each year but being a lover of all things chocolate, I usually prefer to opt for desserts more moreish. The reason behind Granny’s yearly apple pie bonanza is a little apple tree that now sits in Papa’s […]

The most delicious shortbread recipe…Highlander Shortbread have all the best best bits of any shortbread, but with a demerara edging making them next level.

Crunchy Peanut Cookies

Crunchy Peanut Cookies Recipe - crunchy little biscuits, made with peanut butter.

Hi, hello! There’s been a bit of an unintentional radio silence on here of late which I can only apologise for. I’m never sure how much real life stuff people want on here, so tend to stick to the baking. So to help ease me back into the kitchen, here’s another classic from Granny’s little […]

Scottish Daily Mail

Baking with Granny feature in the Scottish Daily Mail newspaper.

If you follow Baking with Granny on Facebook you will have seen the excitement over the fact we recently done a 5-day feature of recipes with the Scottish Daily Mail.

Dundee Cake

Dundee Cake - Deliciously sweet, Scottish fruit cake. Topped with blanched almonds.

When it comes to cake, I still feel like I’m on a journey of discovery. Cakes were always what Granny made when I was growing up and as such, I never really took to them. Too much of a good thing! But since growing up and moving away from home, I have rediscovered cake in […]

Custard Creams - Recipe for the classic British biscuits. Sweet,crumbly, custard biscuits; sandwiched with buttercream.

The classic British biscuit, home made custard creams are even better than the shop bought favourites. There’s two treats that I remember my own Granny baking.

Sweetly spiced biscuits, made with oats and topped with an almond. Perkins biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to a cuppa.

Cheese Bread Sticks

Cheese Bread Sticks recipe from Baking with Granny.

It used to be a running joke it my family that I could eat my parents out of house & home, something I am now experiencing with my own two kids. At only 3ft tall, the amount of food they can pack away is terrifying. How am I going to afford to keep them as […]

Angel Cake

Angel Cake. The classic layer sponge loaf. Pink, yellow and plain, sandwiched together with buttercream.

Growing up with Granny baking at home, people are always shocked to find out that as kids, myself and my sisters weren’t big cake fans.

The perfect fruit scones. Well risen, rich in flavour and full of sultanas. Smother with some butter and top with jam, then enjoy! I’ve been a not-so-secret mission for a while now. One that has involved some pretty rubbish bakes, and some which are good but not quite good enough. Recipes tweaked and altered to […]

Gingerbread

Gingerbread loaf recipe from Baking with Granny. Sliced loaf, made with ground ginger, treacle and golden syrup.

I don’t want to mention the ‘C‘ word since we’re still only in September but there’s no denying the nights are drawing in.

And what’s better than a door-stop sized slice […]

A true classic amongst tray bakes! Mars Bar Slice is sickly sweet, with just the right amount of chew and crunch. Perfection. I’ve two prominent memories from my childhood that involve Mars Bars.

Delicious little buns, popular in both Scotland & Ireland. Paris buns are best enjoyed when full of fruit and toped with sugar nibs.

What is Golden Syrup?

Golden Syrup information. What is golden syrup? Where can I buy golden syrup? What is a substitute for golden syrup?

It’s a staple in any British baking cupboard. Added to cakes, biscuits, puddings… Drizzled on pancakes, ice cream, porridge… Even used as a sandwich filler! But what even is Golden Syrup? And what can you use as an alternative if you can’t get your hands on a tin? Golden Syrup goes right back to the […]

Golden Syrup loaf cake. The best ever recipe for delcious, moist, sticky golden syrup cake.

I can still clearly remember my first encounter with Golden Syrup.

It’s a staple in British baking and most definitely the star ingredient of […]

Rock Buns

Rock Buns recipe from Baking with Granny.

It was actually one of our lovely Twitter followers who’d requested this recipe and of course, Granny had her go-to Rock Bun recipe right on cue! I’m pretty sure prior to this, the last time I made Rock Buns was in my High School Home Economics class and I’m pretty sure they were more rock […]

Fruit Slice – also known as “Fly Cemetery” – is a deliciously rich pastry traybake, filled with a generous amount of spiced currants. Can you guess where it gets it’s somewhat unappetising pet-name?

Oatcakes

We’re big fans of oats in our house.

Spring Fairy Cakes

I don’t know about you but we’re well & truly over winter! Don’t get me wrong, I much prefer the colder seasons to the heat of summer but my perfect weather can be described as, “freezing cold with the sun in the sky,” – certainly not the rain, sleet, snow & the gale force winds […]

And […]

Tunnocks Teacake Cupcakes

When I think of Tunnocks Teacakes, I think of Still Game.
