Baking for guests: Gluten-Free Banana (and Chocolate Chip) Cake.

This weekend I had the last of our visitors for a while, two of our awesome friends from Bristol, one of whom I used to work with, and who we had a reciprocal cat-sitting arrangement with. I think they were just as excited (if not more so) to see our cats as they were to […]

Coconut, Ginger, and Banana Pancakes.

Happy Pancake Day! …or Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, or whatever you call it. This day last year, we had everyone round to our house and whipped up a whole load of pancakes for everyone, in our annual Pancake Day Pancakeathon. This year is slightly different, as we don’t have oodles of people to […]

This week of the Bake Off, week 4, the technical challenge was Creme Caramel, the signature and showstoppers were tortes and layered meringues… They didn’t much […]

Baking with Herman: take 7 – Banoffee Herman.

This post was a bit delayed I’m afraid, this week has been super hectic. It is also going to be the last Herman post for a while, I’ve ran out of inspiration temporarily, and want the freedom to explore making other things. I have enjoyed playing with the Herman recipe, and it has given me […]
