Food blogger Izy Hossack makes Damson Cake with Caramelised Almond Topping (Tosca Cake)

Last month on one of the many sweltering days I jumped on the overground to go to Rachel Khoo’s gorgeous Khoolect Studio to celebrate the launch of her new cookbook, The Little Swedish Kitchen*. She made butternut squash waffles and chocolate-raspeberry bullar and we all sat around in the garden having breakfast before being sent off with a copy of the book and a waffle iron (best goodie bag gift ever tbh).…

Cranberry, Oat and White Chocolate Biscuits

I’m hoooome! Back in London for Christmas break and I’m extremely relieved to be able to chill out for a bit. This has been an all-consuming semester so far. I said to my boyfriend last week ‘I can see now why people drop out in third year. I never understood before but I do now’. It was inevitable that this would be the most challenging year, surprisingly not academically, but mentally. It’s my final year of education after 15 years…

Bakewell (Cherry & Almond) Jam

June 30, 2017

When I was at secondary school, I took Food Technology as one of my GCSEs. There were only 5 of us in the class (everyone obviously hated cooking hahah) but we got recruited to help make jam to sell at the school’s Christmas Bazaar. I remember having to stir up huge vats of the stuff and we made some delicious jars of classic preserves – lemon curd, mango chutney, strawberry jam… One which struck me by surprise was an apricot jam we made…

Blueberry-Carrot Muffins (GF)

January 9, 2016

First of all – Happy New Year! I’ve been somewhat of a revision hermit (what else) for the past week or so. Let’s just say January exams are not the one. I’ve had time to procrastibake, of course, but I see it as a sort of morning-meditation. The light is good, I’m feeling hungry enough to spark creativity but not so hungry that I’d eat a bowl of plain porridge.…

Not-Carrot Carrot Cake with Lemon Frosting {Dairy & Gluten Free, Vegan Option}

September 17, 2015

Following on from my last post – I’m bringing you the first recipe in my low-sugar treats series! I was originally going to post about the vegan chocolate ice cream today, but instead it’s ‘carrot’ cake. This is because, after I posted a picture of said cake on instagram yesterday, A BILLION PEOPLE commented asking for the recipe. It seemed like the ice cream could wait for a bit so I gave in and started editing the cake photos instead.…

Cornmeal & Loganberry Muffins {Vegan}

August 2, 2015

When I started baking years ago I remember being perplexed by certain recipes. Cakes and brownies would always turn out well but a) chocolate chip cookies and b) muffins never worked for me. I have to say that I blame this on me using recipes from ‘older’ English cookbooks – the ones with the types of recipes we’d be taught for basic cooking skills in Food Technology lessons at school. Let me tell you something, those cookbooks are great if you want…

Grain Free Matcha Granola and Iced Coconut Matchaccinos

August 19, 2014

No, that’s not what you might think it is – it’s actually granola (which is addictive as heck). I veeeery nearly called this Munchies Granola and then thought I should maybe not do that. Let’s save the weed puns for the comments sections, yeah? K Cool. It IS green but that’s due to the heavy-handed sprinkling of teapigs organic Matcha powder that I threw into this grain-free granola mix. Having never tasted matcha before I wasn’t sure if I’d like it…

Bumpy Cherry and Almond Pie

July 6, 2014

Before I made this pie (and then ate a quarter of it during a revision break), I’d never actually eaten cherry pie before. I think this is down to two factors: I basically never bake with cherries (yo, £4.50 for a 400 g carton. I’d normally rather just eat them straight up) and I also don’t bake pie that much; check my archives, you’ll see how true this is. I adore pastry, especially this almondy, mega buttery one but I usually find…
