Lemon macarons

I love making macarons – they’re so sophisticated and pretty! Plus they’re the perfect bitesize treat. They’re not too tricky once you’ve cracked the basics and I’m lucky enough to have learned from the best – Clare from Little Bear Cakery! All my macaron recipes are based on the recipe she gave me for my all time favourite hazelnut praline macarons. Macarons make wonderful gifts … Continue reading Lemon macarons

Easy lemon ice cream

Easy lemon ice cream

No-churn lemon ice cream – the perfect dinner party saviour! This recipe defies most of the laws of ice cream making and it does not need churning, turning, or a fancy ice cream maker. It’s basically the easiest recipe in the world and yet equally one of the most delicious. It’s outrageously creamy. And seriously zingy. I’ve pinched it off my soon to be mother-in-law … Continue reading Easy lemon ice cream

Lemon and lime drizzle cake

I love lemon drizzle cake, but sometimes I like to jazz it up a bit. Lemon and lime is a classic combination – this one is very moist and pleasantly zingy! Best of all it takes only a few mins to throw together and bung in the oven, and doesn’t require any rich, faffy frosting. For an 8″ round cake that serves about 10-12 people, … Continue reading Lemon and lime drizzle 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, Cake Days (definitely the best of their three in my … Continue reading Lemon meringue cake

Blueberry and lemon muffins

NB – the batter for this one is best made the night before! This recipe is one I adapted from a BBC Good Food recipe by Paul Hollywood for blueberry muffins. It’s not like any muffin recipe I’ve ever used before, because the batter is refrigerated overnight. When you take it out of the fridge the next day, it’s really stiff and solid, so I … Continue reading Blueberry and lemon muffins

Lemon and Tarragon Salmon with Crushed New Potatoes and Summer Veggies

This is one of my favourite salmon recipes because it’s fresh and zingy and REALLY easy. Until recently, I was a bit of a novice when it came to salmon, but I’ve recently been getting a bit more experimental. Lemon and tarragon go really well together and the whole lot together makes for a delicious, nutritious meal. For two people, you will need: 2 quality … Continue reading Lemon and Tarragon Salmon with Crushed New Potatoes and Summer Veggies

Lemon Chiffon Layer Cake

This is a deliciously light and lemony triple-layer cake. The method is a bit different to your standard sponge, but don’t be daunted – the look and taste is worth it! Makes one triple-layer, 9″ cake. Adapted from the book, Sky High. Ingredients: 8 eggs, separated 1/4 cup vegetable or other flavourless oil (not olive) 2 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp lemon zest (zest … Continue reading Lemon Chiffon Layer Cake
