We are firmly into Autumn now, and while I can’t say that I am enjoying the sudden drop in temperature and the persistent rain, it is not all bad I suppose. Autumn does bring with it some of the best foods – pumpkins, apples, pears and plums to name a few; it is my favourite time of year for baking, and I do like drinking lots of hot drinks and wearing cosy jumpers. (Although I do have a penchant for a somewhat post-apocalyptic style which means that all of my jumpers have THE MOST impracticable sleeves…). Oh, and it is also my favourite holiday – Halloween!

This berry lime bundt cake is a moist, buttery cake with a hint of lime and bursts of tangy mixed berries; topped with a delicious white chocolate lime ganache. It is equally good as a mid morning snack with a cup of tea as it is served with a scoop of ice cream for dessert. (more…)
Christmas may be over and we may be in the throes of the usual January healthy eating resolutions, but I think that there is still place for cake (there is always place for cake); particularly one that uses up leftovers.

If you are also unprepared and didn’t get round to baking a fruitcake yet (or just don’t like fruitcake), then this red velvet bundt cake with white chocolate peppermint cream cheese glaze makes a great festive alternative as it doesn’t need to be baked in advance.

Can you believe that up until now I have never owned a bundt tin? I have always coveted one, but they are quite expensive (I want a Nordicware one…) so I have never been able to justify buying one. So I was rather pleased when a box full of baking goodies that I was sent to review happened to contain a bundt tin; it is not a Nordicware one, but a silicone, half size (6cup) tin. The size is actually perfect for me, as as beautiful as full size bundts are, they are rather large and make a bit too much cake for a family of two… (more…)
