Triple layer chocolatey chocolate cake

Triple layer chocolatey chocolate cake

  It was my birthday last week and I decided to make a triple layer chocolate cake! I’ve been fiddling about with this Hummingbird Bakery recipe for a while and I think I’ve finally cracked it! It’s very rich and moist and will make enough cake for 20+ people, so it’s not one to make...
Heavenly Raspberry Brownies

Heavenly Raspberry Brownies

I had an amazing raspberry brownie while I was in New Zealand (from an AMAZING coffee shop called Joe’s Garage – if you go to NZ, find your nearest one and get their pikelets (pancakes) for breakfast!). When I got back, I just had to have a go at making my own! You can use...
Chocolate and Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding

Chocolate and Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding

This is a recipe I stole and bastardised from a Delia favourite. I’ve fiddled with all the quantities and I do the bread sizing a bit differently, plus I’ve swapped out the rum for Baileys. :) 10 slices of white bread, with the crusts cut off (I actually bought that bread with no crusts designed...
Fudgey Wudgey Brownies

Fudgey Wudgey Brownies

This is one of my favourite ever brownie recipes. It is ever so easy and SO scrumptious – the only challenge is not to eat the whole lot! The real trick with fudgy brownies is the sugar/eggs to flour ratio – you definitely don’t want too much flour. And the most important thing of all...
Mini Banana Chocolate Loaves

Mini Banana Chocolate Loaves

I recently bought some mini loaf tins and they are ridiculously cute. I decided to make some mini banana cakes with them, but you can use them for mini lemon drizzles, mini tea loaves, mini anything! The slight bitterness of the chocolate (if you use the good stuff) goes brilliantly with the sweetness of the banana cake,...

Rhubarb and Chocolate Cakes

Rhubarb and Chocolate Cakes

These cakes are little light vanilla sponges filled with sweet rhubarb and iced with a chocolate ganache topping. I know that ganache is generally made with dark chocolate but as we STILL have Easter eggs on top of the fridge I am loathe to buy more chocolate so bye bye two Smarties eggs, hello lovely...
Chocolate Pots with Cinder Toffee

Chocolate Pots with Cinder Toffee

I remember buying cinder toffee from Darwen market with my Grandpa when I was little – the stuff there was chocolate coated, which you could do with this homemade version too.  To stop the cinder toffee melting, the easiest way to do this is by drizzling melted chocolate over the set toffee. Both the cinder...
Big Bad Banana Bread

Big Bad Banana Bread

There seems to be a constant supply of bananas in our fruit bowl that span all vintages; too green to eat to too black to peel plus every stage in between.  As mentioned in my post a couple of days ago I don’t like wasting food, so therefore I feel it’s my duty to turn...
Chocolate Caramel Cake

Chocolate Caramel Cake

Chocolate and caramel, dangerous. This recipe is adapted from bbcgoodfood. Their original cake does look fun, but I wanted to make something smaller, and with fewer layers. You need 3 sandwich tins (the baby ones, 7″ I believe). Ingredients 225g very soft butter or margarine 225g brown sugar (or muscovado, I have yet to bother trying...
