Christmas Pudding Biscuits.

This past weekend I participated in my first ever “Cookie Swap”. It turns out that we aren’t the only people who have never participated in a cookie swap, as people had to be herded away from the cookie tables as they tried to eat all the cookies instead of taking them home. Anyhow, for my […]

Cheaty McCheaterson’s Chocolate Fudge

I feel like my time is being squeezed on all sides at the moment. I am back in school, so feeling that dreadful “I should really be studying guilt”, I no longer work out before work as my placement starts at 6:30 AM – a bit too early to fit any sort of workout in […]

Chocolate and Cherry (Madeira) Cake

Last night saw the return of the Great British Bake Off! Hurrah! Double Entendre Bingo, Mel and Sue stealing ingredients, and lots and lots of eating! We celebrated in our house by watching it along with some cake, it was cake week after all, and also eating what Brian promised was going to be a […]

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 […]

Chocolate, Raisin, and Cinnamon Bread.

Yep. Another bread recipe. I can’t help it. I don’t trust this oven much with anything else, although I may have to bite the bullet and make my Christmas cake as time is really ticking away now! I was sort of hoping to wait until we move, as the new place has an electric oven, […]

Hobnob day: Chocolate and Ginger, Cinnamon and Raisin, and Seedy Vegan.

It’s International Homemade Hobnob Celebration day! I spent the majority of the morning in bed reading my Kindle. The benefit (and indeed, the drawback) of the Kindle, is that when you finish one book in a series… you can just download the next one… until you run out of books of course. Eventually however, I […]

Paul Hollywood’s Chelsea Buns

I had the afternoon off today after a very long (super duper long and stressful) day at work yesterday. So after indulging in a spot of Christmas Present purchasing, along with some crafting supplies…… I baked. I started off another little sourdough recipe from Paul Hollywood’s book, but then I decided to make one of […]
