Rainbow Coconut Layer Cake

Inspired off the Malaysian Sarawak Layer Cake, this recipe is a labour of love, but oh so worth it I did virtually no recipe testing this past weekend. I often love creating new recipes, having to go through a few iterations before I find the perfect recipe. Whilst I love being able to spot a problem and fix it, sometimes I just want to bake something that I know is…

Speckled Egg Choc Chunk Cookies

This is my pecan and which chocolate cookie, which I have adapted to a milk chocolate version, and threw in some speckled eggs because …. why not, it’s Easter! There is something special about that perfect cookie, which is crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I have never been much of a cookie baker, but find that there are some advantages to getting your sweet…

Speckled Egg Cake

A decadent chocolate mud cake, layered with multi-coloured swiss meringue buttercream This is not just an ordinary cake! It is a six tier death by chocolate cake decorated with all the speckled eggs I could get my hands on. I am a little obsessed with speckled eggs, and if you aren’t I am questioning whether we can be friends! Mud cakes are contentious in our household. I prefer cakes with…

Orange and Almond Cheesecake with Roasted Apricots

A very forgiving cheesecake, thanks to the roasted apricots which are piled on it – the perfect camouflage for any imperfections I know that cheesecakes can be intimidating and that people try to achieve that perfect top, without any browning, cracks or sinking – why though?! Call the cheesecake police on me, but this is a more rustic version that does not require you to line your tin with foil…

Saffron Milk Cake

A fragrant twist on an ordinary sponge cake, tinted with a golden hue from the saffron infused milk It was whilst making some cardamom and orange puddings that the idea of making something saffron inspired came to me. My mind was racing in so many different directions initially, but in the end I decided to settle on a cake incorporating saffron. I have seen some tres leches cakes (my masala…

Roasted Strawberry and Cream Sundae

Silky and creamy strawberry semifreddo, coupled with chantilly whipped cream, strawberry sauce and caramelised almonds Sundae’s have always seemed really daunting and I have never gotten around to making one. Whenever a fix was needed, I would always head over to Spur or Wimpy. Eating Sundae’s at one of these restaurants are filled with nostalgia for me. I wanted to create a more sophisticated version, moving away from the usual…

Strawberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes

A slightly fruity cupcake with a silky smooth white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream I made these cupcakes with the intention of sharing them for Valentine’s Day, but they never ended up making the cut. I was just too inundated with work to edit the pictures and type out the blog post – better late than never though ! These cupcakes have a fruity flavour as a result of the strawberry…

Gluten Free Glacé Cherry and Almond Loaf

A dense and buttery loaf, studded with beautiful red cherries. I am quite experienced when it comes to baking cakes and cupcakes, but my recipes all call for the staple ingredients of flour, sugar, butter and eggs. I haven’t ventured much into creating eggless bakes, or gluten-free or dairy free bakes. Baking is such a science that I have always been a bit afraid of the outcome, should one change…

Red Velvet Macarons with White Chocolate Cheesecake Filling

I love filling macarons with actual discs of baked cheesecake and here I have opted to combine the decadence of red velvet with the creaminess of white chocolate I developed this recipe especially for Valentine’s Day, which is just around the corner. But lets be honest – do we ever need an excuse to eat macarons. These would make the perfect Mother’s Day treat, an anniversary treat or just an…
