Chocolate orange hot cross buns – a delectable chocolatey twist on the classic Easter bread. Perfect for breakfast or a snack.
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…)
Peanut butter and jam waffles – the classic PB&J combination in tasty waffle form!
These peanut butter and jam waffles are a delicious interpretation of a classic PB&J sandwich – crisp, fluffy peanut butter flavour waffles topped with a quick and easy jam sauce and an amazing peanut butter sauce because you can never have too much peanut butter right?! (more…)
Vegan crepes with berry compote and chocolate sauce – easy, tender, egg and dairy free pancakes with a delectable chocolate sauce and mixed berry compote. Perfect for pancake day!
I realised today that it is very nearly pancake day and I hadn’t made any pancake recipes for the occasion. Thankfully I already had all of the ingredients needed to whip up these easy vegan crepes with chocolate sauce and mixed berry compote. (more…)
Blueberry cornmeal skillet cake – perfect as pudding, a snack or even for breakfast; this skillet cake is moist, buttery and incredibly moreish!
A different kind of cake for you today. This blueberry cornmeal skillet cake isn’t the prettiest, but it is damn tasty; whether you have it hot, straight from the skillet for pudding, or cooled and sliced for breakfast or a snack. (more…)
Chai spiced cashew butter – a delicious, flavourful homemade nut butter; you’ll want to slather it on everything!
Have you ever tried making your own nut butter? It is really easy to do and you can make so many different delicious combinations. The only problem is that you do need a food processor or blender that is powerful enough to cope with it – I did once manage to burn out the motor of a flimsier model whilst making praline paste (which is basically the same as nut butter).

Mincemeat, marzipan and apple bread wreath – an impressive festive centrepiece full of Christmassy flavours.
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.

Crispy potato latkes with smoked salmon and chive sour cream – a delicious breakfast or brunch recipe that can easily be prepped ahead of time. Post sponsored by Co-op.
I have done so many sweet recipes recently that savoury ones haven’t had much of a look in (it’s not my fault that there are so many Christmassy things that I want to bake!); but I couldn’t not share the recipe for these crispy potato latkes with smoked salmon and chive sour cream with you. They are incredibly good – the entire batch was devoured very quickly after I was done taking photos, and I think that they would make a great Christmas morning breakfast, or Christmas dinner starter.

Vegan wholemeal maple cinnamon rolls – incredibly good sticky cinnamon buns flavoured with maple syrup that just so happen to be vegan too!
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 – 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 – a soft, sweet brioche bread braid filled with juicy cinnamon apples. Post sponsored by VonShef.
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…)
