Nostalgic Bakes from Paul Hollywood’s “A Baker’s Life”

The recent spate of snow days has made me want to stay in my warm kitchen and bake comfort food.  Never mind me trying to diet.  Forget that! When you feel cold and tired, all you want to do is to hibernate with a giant piece of flapjack in each hand! I ended not beingContinue reading “Nostalgic Bakes from Paul Hollywood’s “A Baker’s Life””

The Great British Bake Off Christmas- Jamaican Gingerbread Loaf.

4th December 2017. Today being a Monday I really struggled to get out of bed this morning. I’d had a good night’s sleep until something woke me up at 4.30am. That was it, I was wide awake for an hour. The alarm was due to go off at 6am but of course I drifted backContinue reading “The Great British Bake Off Christmas- Jamaican Gingerbread Loaf.”

Chocolate Cherry Bakewell Loaf

It’s been a couple of months at least since I’ve been to a Clandestine Cake Club event.  I’ve been working full time and I haven’t baked much recently.  The Clandestine Cake Club’s VCake Events are a fantastic idea if you can’t get to an event but you still want to bake.  I love taking partContinue reading “Chocolate Cherry Bakewell Loaf”

Banana and Peanut Butter Loaf.

I’ve baked loads of recipes from Lorraine Pascale’s new book “Bake” now.  I’ve been really impressed with the range of recipes on offer from cakes to biscuits and desserts and savoury bakes.  I can’t bake as much as I’ve done in the past which does make me feel upset. But it doesn’t do me orContinue reading “Banana and Peanut Butter Loaf.”

Apple and Blackberry Loaf Cake- A Passion For Baking.

Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake With Fudge Icing- from Delia’s Cakes

Gosh, is it really nearly three weeks since my last post?  Well over half term I was away on holiday up on the Isle of Mull, a beautiful part of the world and since I’ve been back I haven’t managed to get anywhere near my laptop.  So better late than never I suppose! Last month IContinue reading “Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake With Fudge Icing- from Delia’s Cakes”

Orange and Olive Oil Loaf- The Great British Bake Off Everyday

A couple of weeks ago I was told by my hubby to stop baking things so much as we were all trying to lose weight.  I agreed with him as I find it is all too tempting to “taste test” what I’ve baked.  I just love baking so much though. Usually the cakes and cookiesContinue reading “Orange and Olive Oil Loaf- The Great British Bake Off Everyday”

Honey and Courgette Loaf- The Great British Bake Off Everyday

As mentioned in my previous post, I had to reluctantly cancel going on a family picnic last Friday due to a stinking cold. I just wanted to stay at home and vegetate!  I had managed to bake the three things I wanted to take as my contribution to the picnic before finally admitting I wasContinue reading “Honey and Courgette Loaf- The Great British Bake Off Everyday”
