It’s no secret that I like to combine some of my everyday favourites into cupcakes (Irn Bru cupcakes is our most popular recipe!) and these Caramac Cupcakes are no exception. Sweet and creamy, with the unmistakable caramel flavour!
Another day, another tray bake. I know I always say tray bakes are super easy but this one really does take the biscuit! And if we’re being completely honest, I’ve not felt myself recently and as such the desire to bake has just not been there. So I needed something super simple just like Tiffin to get back into my baking routine.Read More
The other half laughs at me; I apparently go through phases when it comes to chocolate. I have a handful of favourites of which I alternate between, usually focusing on each one for a couple of months before moving onto the next. January through April it will be Mini Eggs, the rest of the year it is between Wispa Gold, Cadbury Lu and Crunchie. Right now, I’m having a bit of a love affair with caramel so Wispa Gold is the winner as well as the inspiration behind these Chocolate Caramel Cupcakes.Read More
Granny has this drawer in her kitchen. This particular drawer is quite special. It’s the drawer that if organised, could form an entire series of cookbooks. It could only be described as Granny’s Recipe Drawer. These Hungarian Biscuits is one of – what is likely thousands! – recipes stashed away in that drawer.
Little known fact for you…I did music as a Standard Grade at school. In fact, it was one of my favourite subjects. I was never really that great at playing music but I loved the theory side of things. One tune I did master on the keyboard however is Hot Cross Buns, even if everyone thinks I’m playing Three Blind Mice whenever I decide to share my skills on the keys. I wasn’t really a fan of actual Hot Cross Buns until recent years, mainly due to my indifference towards dried fruit. But if like me you like a Hot Cross Bun but need something a little sweeter to entice you in, these Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns will be music to your ears!
When I first asked Granny to share her Maltesers Slice recipe with me, she rattled it off the top of her head without a second thought. This is another one of her recipes that has been well and truly perfected, to the point she knows it straight from memory. Just like Granny’s Fudge Slice recipe, this Maltesers Slice is super easy and super tasty.
If there’s one kind of recipe that no one can fail at, it’s a tray bake! Deceivingly named as the majority of them don’t require any baking, tray bakes are the perfect way to impress people with your baking skills, without actually having any. Fudge Slice is especially easy and as equally delicious.
Stress & mess aside, I really do love baking with The Boys. John in particular loves nothing more than putting on his apron & chef’s hat and getting his hands floury. It doesn’t actually matter what you tell him we’re making, he will always tell people he’s been, “making biscuits!” But as far as recipes for baking with kids go, I’m always a fan of something, quick, easy & with flavours that meet their approval and these Rainbow Cookies come out tops.
It’s acceptable to start getting excited about Christmas now, right? Well how about a Christmas style recipe that can be enjoyed all year round – that’s definitely ok, yeah? Ok, good. Here I present to you the moistest cupcakes in the best flavour combination you could ever hope for: Terry’s Chocolate Orange cupcakes!
