An indulgent journey into baking

Maple Cream Cheese Carrot Cake

It’s coincidence really, two Maple Syrup recipes in a row. I’m definitely not on the payroll of our Canadian friends… But anyway, who can resist the combination of Pecans and Maple Syrup, so it seems perfectly natural to combine the two when making a sumptuous moist carrot cake.

Maple Pecan Pie

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Where we get to coat everything in maple syrup and abandon hope of diets and moderation. In celebration, today I’ll be baking an American favourite.

Marbled Coffee and Ricotta Sandwich Cake

Inspired by the great Dan Lepard, and my recent obsession with coffee as an ingredient, today I set about making my own mark on coffee cake. This variant is delightfully marbled, and accompanied by a sweet vanilla buttercream to help scoff the lot.

Coffee and Walnut Muffins

Bank holidays are not days for effort. So they’re not days for complex recipes either. If you’re possibly recovering from the night before, or looking to perk up an otherwise damp evening, try these coffee infused muffins with a rich, indulgent frosting.
