When recipe brainstorming recently, I realised that it had been quite some time since I last baked any bread (Easter to be precise with my chocolate orange hot cross buns). Obviously that had to be remedied and I have been really loving blueberries recently and thus these lemon blueberry rolls were born. (more…)

It feels like we only just had Christmas but now it is somehow nearly Easter already; I don’t know where the time has gone! I need to do some more Easter themed baking to blog but for now I do have these chocolate orange hot cross buns to share with you. (more…)

Mincemeat, Marzipan And Apple Bread Wreath

One last post before Christmas! This mincemeat, marzipan and apple bread wreath is an impressive centrepiece that would be perfect for a festive breakfast. I somehow ended up with about five jars of mincemeat leftover from making various things and there are only so many mince pies that one can eat (though that number is rather high); so I decided to make this bread wreath instead.

These soft, gooey, sticky vegan wholemeal maple cinnamon rolls are some of the best cinnamon buns that I have ever made, ever. Damian was completely stunned that they were vegan and said that they were utterly indistinguishable from non-vegan ones, and that they were some of the best, most amazing cinnamon buns he had ever had. Which just goes to show that vegan food can be just as indulgent and delicious! (more…)

Vegetarian breakfast pizza recipe - enjoy pizza (or breakfast!) at any time of day!

If I had to pick one favourite food I think it would have to be pizza (with ice cream for dessert!). I think that I could probably eat pizza every day and not get bored of it; and now I’ve come up with a pizza recipe that means that I can have it for breakfast as well as lunch or dinner! And no, I’m not talking about cold leftover pizza! (more…)

Apple Cinnamon Brioche & VonShef Stand Mixer Review

Apple cinnamon brioche bread braid - the perfect Autumn breakfast.

The apple tree in my garden has yielded a decent crop this year. The apples are a little too sharp to eat as they are however so I need to do lots of baking to use them up. I haven’t decided exactly what to make with them all, but I started by baking this apple cinnamon brioche which used up four of them and was very tasty too. (more…)

Chocolate Orange Doughnuts

Chocolate orange doughnuts – soft, orange scented fried doughnuts topped with chocolate orange ganache and candied oranges – pure heaven!

A fresh, fried, yeasted doughnut is a beautiful thing. Pillowy soft, sweet and so full of flavour, fried doughnuts are the pinnacle of comfort food. I do think that baked and cake doughnuts have their place, but they simply cannot beat the perfection of a fried one. (more…)

New potato, caramelised onion, rosemary & gruyère pizza

Our kitchen renovation is coming along well, if a little slowly. We now actually have a sink downstairs (having to go all the way up to the third floor to get water was getting rather tiring and it made it so much more difficult to make a cup of tea than it should be!), we have done most of the hard labour, and I had a shiny new range cooker installed yesterday. Pretty much all that is left to do is painting and tiling, as well as the monumental task of organising all of my baking supplies and photography props… (more…)

Nutella Swirled Banana Yeast Bread

We all love banana bread (well, all of us apart from Damian who for some inexplicable reason doesn’t like it. More for me I guess.), and I’m sure that we can all agree that banana bread with nutella is food of the gods. But how many of you have tried a yeasted banana bread? More specifically, one that is swirled with gooey nutella? Probably not very many. But that needs to change because this nutella swirled banana yeast bread is incredible and a totally different way of using up those over-ripe bananas. (more…)

Tangzhong Burger Buns

Tangzhong burger buns - super soft burger buns made using the tangzhong method (Hokkaido milk bread)

I love the tangzhong method of bread baking, it gives such great results every time – pillowy soft, slightly sweet, incredibly versatile bread. If you haven’t heard of tangzhong before then it is quite simple; it just involves making a cooked paste of flour and water which is added to the bread dough; the dough is quite sticky, so is best made in a stand mixer, but it stays soft for days and is SO good!
