Vanilla Bean and Baileys Velvet Cheesecake

Vanilla Bean and Baileys Velvet Cheesecake

I invented this recipe a few months ago when I went a bit off piste. I had a great plan to invent something totally new, and I wanted to use the new Vanilla Bean Paste I’d been sent, so on World Baking Day, I created the Vanilla Bean and Baileys Velvet Cheesecake. I use the...
Vanilla Extract

Vanilla Extract

Vanilla extract is the easiest thing in the world to make – which means you no longer have to spend upwards of five pounds for a lilliputian supermarket bottle. Plus, it makes a great (and cheap!) gift. You will need: vanilla pods cheap vodka (the good stuff can be saved for drinking!) Simply split the...

Vanilla Poached Plums

These are a delightful, easy, seasonal treat perfect for those cold winter days. I love these with cream, custard, ice cream and even as a real treat on my porridge in the morning. The benefit of this recipe is that you dont have to wait for the fruit to ripen – it works equally well...
Cinnamon & Vanilla Banoffee Pie

Cinnamon & Vanilla Banoffee Pie

Banoffee pie is brilliant comfort food. This is my variation for winter – the cinnamon and vanilla make it that touch Christmassy! Highly recommend a big slice served with a warm cup of tea or a generous slug of Baileys on the rocks! For 4-6 people, you will need: 15 digestive biscuits 1 1/2 tsp...

Lemon & Vanilla Cupcakes

Lemon & Vanilla Cupcakes

These cupcakes are so pretty and dainty, people will think you bought them! There is absolutely NO reason for there to be white chocolate buttons on top save that they look pretty and match the shade of the buttercream (I know, artistic license, sorry). So you can miss those out if you think they’re naff....
Victoria Sponge Cupcakes

Victoria Sponge Cupcakes

Ok, so the name might not sound too exciting, but these really are the best cupcakes ever!  Not too sweet, perfect with a cuppa and oh-so pretty.  They’re made the old fashioned way too, so put away your electric mixer, get out your apron and make them your way your mum taught you. Makes 12....
Vanilla Cupcakes

Vanilla Cupcakes

Good ol’ fashioned vanilla cupcakes are the ultimate classic. These ones, adapted from The Hummingbird Bakery’s recipe, are really simple and produce wonderfully fluffy cupcakes. The frosting ALWAYS produces way more than normal people need, so think about doubling the cupcake bit for one load of frosting. Or you can freeze the frosting too, so...
