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…)

Raspberry, coconut and lemon layer cake - a gorgeous cake for Spring with coconut cake layers, raspberry buttercream and lemon curd.

The weather seems to have finally taken a turn for the better and today we have blue skies and sunshine. I am hoping for a sunny Easter weekend, though that may just be wishful thinking. Whatever the weather, this lovely raspberry, coconut and lemon layer cake would make a wonderful celebration cake for Easter; or any Springtime event. (more…)

This vegan lemon almond cake is really quick and simple to make, but it looks very pretty topped with it’s cloud of whipped coconut cream and mound of juicy strawberries; no decorating skills required! It would be a lovely cake to make for occasions such as Easter or Mother’s Day, not that it needs a special occasion to be baked at all. (more…)

Easy vegan lemon curd recipe - egg and dairy free lemon curd that is sweet, creamy, intensely lemony, totally addictive and ready in under ten minutes!

I first made this lemon curd some time ago now to fill my vegan lemon curd layer cake, but I felt like it deserved it’s own recipe post. Recently Damian has been trying to cut down on dairy as it isn’t very good for his stomach (a problem that a lot of people have I think), so I have been trying to join him. Seeing as I am already vegetarian, this has meant that I have been making a lot more vegan recipes so expect to see more of them on here! (more…)

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Lemon poppy seed muffins - easy to make and great for breakfast or lunchboxes.

I love a good muffin but don’t seem to make them very often. When I do get round to baking them I like to make a big batch and store them in the freezer so that I’ve got them on hand for a quick breakfast or snack when needed. It is difficult to pick a favourite flavour, but if I had to I think I would go for lemon poppy seed muffins; their fresh flavour never disappoints and they are so quick and easy to make. (more…)

I’ve been meaning to do some dabbling in vegan baking for a while now; veganism is becoming increasingly popular and while I myself am not vegan (I’ve been vegetarian my whole life), I do know several vegans and am attempting to cut down on dairy myself so it only seems fair to have a few vegan versions of bakes up my sleeve.

More bloomin’ pancakes! I promise that once pancake day is over I will share something that isn’t pancakes, but for now I can’t get enough of them! These ones are baklava inspired – the sweet, syrupy, nutty filo pastry treat in pancake form. These are thick, soft, fluffy American-style pancakes made with Greek yogurt to keep them extra moist and pack in some protein and they are flavoured with cardamom, cinnamon and chopped nuts with a delicious sweet syrup with hints of lemon, orange blossom water and rose.

Valentine’s Persian Love Cake

Persian love cake - a romantic, fragrant cake flavoured with lemon, rosewater, cardamom, almond and pistachio, perfect for Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I’ve got a last-minute post for you in the form of Persian love cake. The story behind this cake goes that there was a Persian woman who was madly in love with a prince so she baked him a cake to make him fall in love with her; because what better way is there to win someone over than with cake?! There are multiple versions of the story floating around, some ending happily, some definitely not. It is extremely unlikely to actually be true and is most likely a fairly modern invention; but I do like food with a story!

Tangy Lemon & Lime Curd

lemon-and-lime-curd

I don’t make fruit curd very often, for the simple reason that I cannot resist eating the lot. No word of a lie, I ate this entire batch of lemon & lime curd by myself in under a week… It is dangerously addictive stuff! It also happens to be very simple to make and amazingly versatile, not to mention so much nicer than shop-bought. It is fantastic just piled generously on toast, but also works well as a cake, tart, doughnut or eclair filling, swirled through ice cream, yoghurt or cheesecake, on pancakes, waffles or scones and can even be used in steamed puddings and souffles; the list goes on.

Syrupy Lemon, Olive Oil & Semolina Cakes

Mini syrup drenched lemon, olive oil and semolina cakes

I made these little lemon, olive oil & semolina cakes for a picnic last week; they are great for picnics as they are very quick to whip up, and because they aren’t iced they can be transported in their tins or a tub easily if need be. The combination of lemon zest and semolina flour give the cakes a lovely sunny yellow colour, and the drenching of syrup provides a strong kick of lemon flavour and keeps them deliciously moist and soft.
