Coffee and Rum Cake

Guest post from the amazing Clare of the Little Bear Cakery! At the beginning of the year I was lucky enough to spend four days doing work experience at The Delaunay, Aldwych. Part of Rex Restaurant Associates (owners of the Wolseley), The Delaunay is an all-day cafe-restaurant inspired by the grand cafes of Europe with an...
Banana and chocolate bundt cake

Banana and chocolate bundt cake

Oh I *do* love a delicious bundt cake – and this banana and chocolate bundt cake is a particularly tasty one. Bunt cakes are super easy and quicker then traditional round cakes, because the hole in the middle lets air circulate, cooking the cake more quickly. This one is dead easy to make and it’s...
Banana spiced madeleines

Banana spiced madeleines

I absolutely love madeleines – they’re just so dainty! These banana spiced madeleines are super easy to make – but you do need a madeleine pan. My favourite thing about this recipe is that you can make it with just a wooden spoon and some cup measurements – easy peasy! 3 large ripe bananas ¾ cup...
Stollen

Stollen

Alright, so I know I’m starting the new year with a distinctly Christmassy recipe, but I made a few stollens over Christmas and I think I’ve perfected my recipe. So I have to share it with you now in case I’ve forgotten it or lost my notes by December. Besides, stollen is so tasty that...
Ombre cake

Ombre cake

Ombre cakes are ALL over Pinterest. The ombre effect is made from layers of graduating colour, starting from the lightest to the darkest. This is a mini one made from three layers of vanilla bean sponge coloured with red food dye, going from dark pink to medium pink to pale pink. They’re easy to make...
Review: Heston Blumenthal's Sage Mixer Scraper Pro

Review: Heston Blumenthal’s Sage Mixer Scraper Pro

I was lucky enough to be sent one of Heston Blumenthal’s gorgeous new mixers for his brilliant appliance brand, Sage. The Scraper Mixer Pro is a unique design, with flexible edges on one of the beaters which ensure that the bowl is scraped clean with every rotation. The result is that the cake batter (or...
Lemon meringue cake

Lemon meringue cake

I have to confess, I’m pretty darn chuffed with this recipe. I made it for my boyfriend’s mum’s birthday this year (having made a French flag cake last year) so I wanted it to be quite big and fancy. I was inspired after seeing a recipe for lemon meringue cupcakes in the Hummingbird Bakery’s book,...
Easy cream cheese frosting

Easy cream cheese frosting

Cream cheese frosting is one of my favourites – it’s wonderfully smooth and rich without being too sweet. My easy cream cheese frosting works beautifully with carrot cakes, banana cakes, red velvet – pretty much anything. Best of all, my recipe is easy and foolproof – it hasn’t let me down yet! To cover and...
Chocolate fudge cake

Chocolate fudge cake

Chocolate fudge cake is a real weakness of mine and this recipe will produce a delicious, moist, and light cake. I make it in 3 layers in 6″ cake tins but you could use this recipe to make 2 layers of 8″ cake. I like the smaller size as it creates a tall, proud little...
Cinnamon madeleines

Cinnamon madeleines

  Madeleines are little dainty shell shaped cakes that hail from France. They’re often flavoured with lemon, but I fancied cinnamon in mine! They’re delicious dipped in tea and they’re really lovely to serve at tea parties. Best of all they’re easy. You do need a madeleine pan to get that shell shape. This is...
Lemon yoghurt cake

Lemon yoghurt cake

I was sent this rather fabulous cake mould a couple of weeks ago from the lovely folk at findmeagift.co.uk. It looks almost flower shaped when the cake is whole, but when you cut it into six slices, you end up with rather gorgeous heart shaped slices. It’s very clever and the cake I created was...
