It’s impossible to escape them at this time of year but if there’s one person who will never turn them down it’s Papa! He’ll eat mince pies of any description but his most favourite kind are puff pastry mince pies. And because I’m the most amazing daughter in the world (& the most modest too!) I’m more than happy to indulge him with a batch or two.
Surely I’m not the only one who promises themselves each Christmas that they will make a nice breakfast to start off the days festivities but ends up eating a selection box instead? This will be the year though! And with so many delicious options I’ve really no excuse.
What can I say about these Chocolate Fudge Brownies in a Jar other than they are a guaranteed crowd pleaser! And if you are looking for a last minute stocking filler or a fail-proof Secret Santa gift, then look no further. Best of all, the ingredients when combined make what Granny has called, “the best chocolate brownies she’s ever tasted.” Big praise indeed!
When it comes to baking at Christmas time it’s near impossible to not get the kids involved. The boys love nothing more than lending a hand, especially when it involves anything Christmas-y (our ‘beautifully’ decorated Christmas tree backs me up on this…). Where some recipes are best left to grown ups after bedtime, these super-simple Crispy Christmas Puddings from Samantha at Chocolate & Wine and I’ll Be Fine are the perfect bake to get little hands making!
I didn’t think it was possible to make the simple biscotti biscuit any more festive but these Vegan Christmas Cake Biscotti do just that! As well as having every flavour of Christmas in one little biscuit, they are vegan-friendly! This fantastic recipe comes from Midge at The Peachicks Bakery and it’s one that all guests over Christmas can truly enjoy.
It’s now that time of year when I start to think about what we can bake to give as gifts to friends and family for Christmas. It’s something that Granny has always done but I love how nowadays giving the gift of biscuits, cakes & mince pies at Christmas has become such a popular thing. Today we’ve got a lovely and amazingly simple Peanut Butter Cookie recipe to share from the lovely Lauren at Dilan and Me.
It’s December meaning it’s officially acceptable to talk about Christmas! Of course we will have some festive themed recipes coming your way very shortly but why don’t we kick off the Christmas planning with something a little bit different – the Top 5 Baking Book for Kids!
As seen at Foodies Festival Edinburgh 2017!
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
I’d always enjoyed a good Cinnamon Bun but one of the girls at work seems to have brought out an obsession within me. It started with Starbucks – delicious but bloody expensive! Then a Greggs opened up across the road from work and their Cinnamon Buns are just as good and only 90p! What more could you ask for? I’ll tell you what more – an entire tray of Cinnamon Buns, home baked and fresh from the oven. Can you blame me for being obsessed?
