The famous Victoria Sponge! Is there a more iconic cake? Or one which can divide opinion so fiercely. Not sure what I’m talking about? Let me explain…Read More
In the world of baking, there is always something on-trend. For years it was cupcakes, then there was cake-pops, followed by more creative bakes such as the cronut. More recently, it’s been biscuits! But not just any biscuits – iced biscuits that resemble works of art have been taking social media by storm, as we all watch those videos of these little masterpieces coming together. Seeing the final masterpieces could have you thinking they are hard to achieve but the amazing new book, The Biscuiteers Book of Iced Gifts takes you right from baking your biscuits, to turning them into your own little works of art.
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 blue book; Crunchy Peanut Cookies!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
I don’t know about you but alongside spending time with family, my favourite part of Christmas is the food! From something sweet for breakfast (lets be honest, it’s usually a selection box!) to turkey with all the trimming for dinner, as well as all the Roses, Celebrations & Heroes in between. But by the end of the day when bellies are full, there’s always room for one more thing; after dinner mints! And these Chocolate Peppermint Creams are the perfect home made festive treat that anyone can make.Read More
