Coconut, Berry and Chia Porridge

coconut-berry-chia-porridge

Cold winter mornings equals porridge in my books – it’s like a big warm hug. I’ve been making this coconut, berry and chia porridge religiously for the past 2 months and I’m still not sick of it! Using coconut milk instead of cow’s milk not only gives it a great coconutty flavour, but means it’s […]

Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes

I get my baking inspiration from a huge range of sources, from a pin I see on Pinterest, to a dessert I try at a restaurant whilst abroad. This week’s inspiration was from a block of Lindt chocolate my mother gave me when I was feeling sick. “Chocolate is very therapeutic” she said (what a […]

Salted Caramel and Tim Tam Cheesecake

salted-caramel-cheesecake

This decadent cake combines three of my favourite things – salted caramel, Tim Tams and cheesecake. And unsurprisingly, they each complement each other perfectly. However, you just might need a lie down after eating a slice. This cheesecake is simple to make and just requires a bit of patience to allow each layer to set. […]

Banana and Nutella Swirl Muffins

As much as I love whipping up grand triple-layered cakes and carefully piping buttercream roses, sometimes it’s nice to just bake something easy and comforting.

It also helped that the colour theme for her birthday was pink, so I could colour the icing naturally. Raspberry and […]

White Chocolate Easter Bark with Popping Candy

This is a super easy and fun Easter recipe that makes a great present. It was my first time marbling chocolate and I must admit I over mixed it in excitement and it ended up looking slightly like a psychedelic acid trip. With edible glitter! It’s an incredibly flexible recipe that you can tailor to […]

Choc Raspberry Vegan Mousse

Those of you who are familiar with my baking know I am pretty heavy handed with the butter, sugar, eggs and flour. But I LOVE getting creative in the kitchen, and have been tweaking and creating new recipes lately to make them gluten or dairy free, or even vegan, for friends and family with intolerances […]
