Blueberry Pancake and Butter Pudding

This tasty pudding is a take on bread and butter pudding, replacing the bread with pancakes and adding fruit – to be healthy!  This would make a great alternative dessert (or breakfast) on Pancake Day or a good way to use up leftover pancakes – should there ever be such a thing! You can use…

Valentine Piñata Cake

I’ve been pinning on Pinterest Piñata Cakes for a while, but never seem to have the right occasion to make one, until I seen this Conversation Heart Piñata Cake for Valentines Day.  I have loads of Conversation Hearts left over from wedding cupcakes I did a while ago, so thought I could use them up…

Neenish Tarts

You are probably thinking ‘What on earth are Neenish Tarts’?, unless of course you are Australian, in which case I am hoping you know!  I was idly surfing the web and realised it was Australia Day on Monday, so I decided to see what other sweet treats down under has to offer other than the…

Whisky Marmalade

Each year I plan to make Seville Orange Marmalade, but I’m never prepared for when the short season comes round.  This year I was prepared and no Seville Oranges where to be found! So instead I made ordinary marmalade and added a generous amount of whisky, to liven it up a bit.  Marmalade making is…

Scottish Tablet

This time of year sees typical Scottish recipes flood the internet, and I thought I would be no different and share with you a family recipe for the delicious sweet treat that is tablet.  I am sure most Scottish grannies have passed down their recipes to their children and grandchildren so not all recipes will…

Mincemeat Rolls with Rum Frosting

One of the things I love making for a winter breakfast is freshly made, warmed cinnamon rolls enjoyed with a big mug of coffee.  Since we are approaching Christmas I decided to re-vamp my cinnamon rolls to be more in line with the Festive Season and turn them into Mincemeat Rolls with a slightly boozy…

Sticky Orange Marmalade Cake

Growing up I loved Paddington Bear, in fact I actually think my parents still have my old stuffed toy half hanging together somewhere! The big kid in me was excited to learn of the new Paddington Bear film which is released today! Am I too old to go and see it? Never! and will I…

Mikado Coconut Cream Cake

As a kid growing up I loved Jacobs Kimberley, Mikado and Coconut Creams, I think it was the marshmallow in them all that attracted me (a sweet tooth from an early age!).  I remember also liking the catchy tune on the advert,  but looking back at that now I am not sure it sits so…

White Chocolate and Raspberry Baked Cheesecake

It was our friends annual BBQ a couple of weeks ago (we were optimistic that we would get nice weather, but we didn’t, it rained all day!) and as usual I was tasked with providing dessert. I have had a craving for a baked cheesecake for a while, and so I went about scouring the…

Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

One afternoon while passing the time reading twitter, I spotted a request from the lovely people at Sugar & Crumbs for willing bakers to try out some of their new naturally flavoured icing sugar range.  Not one for letting an opportunity to try something new to pass by, I responded and a few days later…
