The Return


Howdy!

It’s been a while and I am now back to share more lovely cakes! 🙂

For my first post in a while I thought I’d announce a few things…

1. My baking business is well on it’s way and I’m now looking for a place of my own to set up!
2. I’ve been doing more experimenting and I’ve come up with a lot of cool baking techniques to share!
3. I have a 25% off summer discount on all my cakes! So everyone in the Midlands take advantage until 1st July 2013!

Hope you’re looking forward to what’s to come 🙂

Happy baking!

French Perfection Part Deux


I know I’ve already done a blog on my French favourite, Strawberry Gateaux however, I received another order for it and this time I used a Genoise sponge, with thanks to Eric Lanlard.
For the sponge (dependent on the amount of layers you want the Gateaux to have): Continue reading

Recipe For Wholesome, Homemade Fruit Loaf


Day 3 of my healthy recipe sharing and this particular one is a family favourite. Me, my mother and my grandmother LOVE fruit loaf!

I had to browse the internet and cook books for recipes most like the way I bake my fruit loaf but with measurements as I don’t always measure my ingredients because I like to experiment in the kitchen. This recipe is the most similar, simplest and probably the tastiest that I could find.

So here it is…the recipe for a lovely fruit loaf! Enjoy 🙂 Continue reading

Recipe For “Oh-So-Good” Granola Bars


So my second Olympic inspired, healthy recipe this week is not a cake of any kind but I did say I’ll be sharing recipes for “baked goods”. 😉

I was introduced to granola bars by my boyfriend, who is a big fan of them, and I love them. A granola bar with ice cold milk for breakfast or as a snack is amazing! However, a lot of shop bought granola bars are high in sugar, fat and carbs.

Here’s a recipe that is low fat, low sugar and low carb 🙂

Makes: 24 bars (Though this is only a recommended serving, I doubt I’d be able to get that many out of an 8×8 pan so go by your own judgment or just double the recipe and use a bigger pan)

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:  Continue reading
