Lemon and Blueberry Sponge Cake

This is another of my favourite recipes. I found a similar Blueberry and Lemon Cake in a local coffee shop a little while back and it’s always something I keep choosing when I pop in – I love it there as they bake their cakes freshly that morning – it’s testament to them as you can guarantee … Continue reading Lemon and Blueberry Sponge Cake

Carrot Cake

Today I'm sharing my recipe for Carrot Cake. Just like my Courgette and Lime Cake, it's incredibly light and spongy and topped with a delicious orange flavoured drizzle icing. Many Carrot Cakes have a yummy cream cheese frosting (like my Pink Frosted Beetroot Cake - if you want to frost yours, check out that post here) however … Continue reading Carrot Cake

Iced Coconut Cupcakes

This is a twist on my Easy Iced Cupcake recipe for those of you who find plain sponge….well, a bit plain. The coconut adds a little more taste and texture, but doesn’t overpower the cakes. This time round, rather than use fondant icing, I’ve used icing sugar to make up a thick(ish) white icing to … Continue reading Iced Coconut Cupcakes

The … Continue reading Chocolate & Beetroot Cake

Iced Biscuits

They’re great to make and store really well so are perfect if you get any unexpected visitors. That’s if they last that long that is; they’re a fab thing to make with the … Continue reading Iced Biscuits

Ingredients: (for your cupcakes) 100g butter 100g caster sugar 150g flour 2 eggs 15ml cold black coffee (for the buttercream frosting) … Continue reading Coffee Cupcakes

Easy Iced Cupcakes

For those of you who have sampled my World Famous Muffin recipe (as well as those of you who haven’t), you’ll love this recipe for cupcakes. The basic recipe is the same (but halved!) but feels like a very different cake…and they’re lots of fun to ice! Ingredients 100g butter 100g caster sugar 150g self … Continue reading Easy Iced Cupcakes
