Cheesecake Brownies

Chocolate brownies with a layer of vanilla cheesecake running through the centre – sound good? They are! I was looking to make red velvet brownies in honour of Liverpool winning the Premiership for the first time in 30 years but the red colour did not show at all. However, the taste was simply too good…

Custard Almond Cake Squares

There’s no need to worry about heating up the custard for this cake – because it’s already in it. Cake and custard does not need any introduction nor does it need to be meddled with. This recipe simple put these two things together for one ready-made bite. A simple traybake with a custard centre. Sounds…

Quick and Easy Oat Cookies Ⓥ

These cookies are incredibly easy to make, are eggless for the vegetarians out there and will last for a week (if you store them right). Don’t get me wrong, the usual “oat-less” cookies are amazing and can be everything that you’d want but when you get bored of those – enter oat cookies. The texture…

Lemon Drizzle Traybake

If you’re looking for something that doesn’t have a lot of steps or isn’t technical but most importantly, will taste great – then this is it. A simple yet popular dessert, this will go down well at tea time and can easily be upscaled to be made for more than a few people. This recipe…

Pasteis de Nata (Portuguese Custard Tarts)

If you’ve ever been to Portugal you’ll instantly know what these are. They are essentially custard tarts but they are much more than just that – they have a crispy buttery pastry which encases custard which has been infused with cinnamon and lemon. The first time I was lucky enough to try one was in…

Chocolate Marble Cake

You’ve probably seen a variety of marble cakes before which won’t always have looked the same. There are certainly ways you can make this cake look like a showstopper but it’ll need some planning. In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make a basic chocolate marble cake where you’ll see the vanilla and chocolate…

Extremely Rich and Indulgent Carrot Cake

Carrots are naturally sweet and crunchy and there are enough people who won’t go near them, let alone want them in a cake. But centuries ago, they have been used in desserts and cakes due to this sweet quality especially when sugar was not as accessible. Fast forward a few hundred years and carrot cakes…

Easy-to-make Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’ve never made a muffin before and when I looked into the method, I had to spend a bit of time getting my head around the difference between a cupcake and a muffin. If you’re not into baking then you’d probably not care as long as you get a something to eat but the method…

Moist Triple Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cake

Yes that’s right – its “triple” because the cake is chocolate, the icing is chocolate and the chips are chocolate. This three pronged attack won’t do your teeth any good but what self-respecting dessert will? Most people out there are a fan of chocolate, for which this would go down a treat. But if you…

Lemon Curd & Cream Sandwich Cake

The combination of lemon curd and cream is something that should not be missed. If you’re firmly on the side of hating anything that is remotely sour then you’d probably think this would not be for you. But you’d be wrong (I hope). This, like most cakes, goes well with a nice cup of tea…
