What’s this? A new recipe?! It has certainly been a while but what better way to get back into the swing of things than a Dark Chocolate and Orange Shortbread biscuit.
Recently someone asked Granny, “what’s your favourite thing to bake?” and without hesitation, she answered with “Shortbread!” I’ve already shared Granny’s infamous Shortbread recipe but inspired by recent events, I thought it was now time to share another variation of the classic Scottish Shortbread – which incidentally is my favourite kind – Highlander Shortbread!Read More
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. Unfortunately, our feature clashed with the arrival of the “Beast from East”, meaning we were unable to get the last few days worth of newspapers locally – a problem which I understand a lot of people had too!Read More
If you asked me to make a tray bake to top all of the other tray bakes, Caramel Slice would be the winner. It’s a real classic and always a favourite with all ages, made with all the best things you could have in a sweet treat; biscuit, caramel and chocolate!Read More
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 all it’s glory. The latest cake to join my newly discovered all-time favourites is Dundee Cake.Read More
One of my most favourite things to have happened since starting Baking with Granny is people sharing what they used to bake with their own Granny. It was never the initial expectation behind sharing Granny’s recipes here but it came naturally with the concept. Some of the recipes people mention are already here (Shortbread and Fly Cemetery), some are in the works and others I’m not always familiar with. Perkins biscuits was one that was requested on Facebook – one I hadn’t heard of before but of course, Granny had a recipe stashed away.Read More
When it comes to traditional British puddings, you don’t get any more traditional than a good old fashioned Christmas Pudding, with it’s Medieval origins! And with this years Stir Up Sunday quickly approaching, we’ve got the perfect recipe to make the perfect show stopping pudding for your Christmas dinner!
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. We’d always have beautiful birthday cakes created by Granny but we would never have much interest in actually eating them. However there’s one person who has always been loyal to eating Granny’s cakes – that is Papa. Perhaps that is why the tale of his 40th Birthday Angel Cake is all the more facetious.
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 within an inch of their lives… This mission I speak of? The perfect Fruit Scones!Read More
