As I was browsing through this months Delicious magazine I came across a rhubarb recipe, there’s bags upon bags rhubarb in the freezer, the recipe also has oats so I thought that seems nice and healthy. You’ve got one of your five a day, a cereal and plenty of dairy too of course, haha. Continue reading “Oaty, rhubarb streusel cake”

A little lime, a lotta coconut.

So I’ve been given another opportunity to make a wedding cake, this time for a friend’s wedding in a few months time. I’m super excited to try out some new recipes and you will get to follow me on the wedding cake journey for the next few months, whoop whoop. So one of the layers that I suggested was a coconut and lime cake, one I’ve never made before, but sure it can’t be that hard, right? Famous last words, I will never learn, haha. I found this recipe on……..yes you guessed it, BBCGoodFood, just can’t beat it.  Continue reading “A little lime, a lotta coconut.”

Sultana white soda bread

So with it being January and after eating sooooo many sweets, turkey etc (mind you I’m still eating them as it’s still technically the holidays) I was in a bit of a dilemma, what am I going to bake this month that people will eat without feeling guilty???!! So last night I was chatting away to an aunt of mine and decided I’d try my hand at making her version of soda bread. I remember always eating slices of sultana white soda bread at my Granny’s years ago so I was only delighted to make this.  Continue reading “Sultana white soda bread”
