Salted Caramel Apple Cake

November 6, 2018
Food Blogger Izy Hossack makes Salted Caramel Apple Cake

Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post! This Salted Caramel Apple Cake is a lovely autumn/winter bake, lightly spiced with cinnamon and covered with a brown sugar cream cheese frosting.  I’ve been surprisingly busy since finishing uni, between the Ireland workshop and moving home I’ve been doing some freelance recipe development and photography. Meanwhile we haven’t had (and still don’t have) WiFi in the flat due to the building not being hooked up to the external phone lines so I’ve…

Tahini Caramel Apple Tart

March 27, 2018

Thanks to Food Network UK for sponsoring this post and to you guys for supporting me! At uni for the past two years I’ve been lucky enough to live with two friends from my course – we all study Food Science & Nutrition. I assumed, going into this course, that all the other people I’d be studying with would be as interested in cooking as I am, but it’s become abundantly clear this is not the case, haha. Fortunately, my…

October 23, 2017

So I was meant to post this recipe about 2 weeks ago, then I ended up getting the flu which turned into LARYNGITIS so I was basically sleeping all week. (Side note: losing my voice for a week made me realise how hard it is to live your life when you can’t speak. Like calling up a GP to make an appointment? Not an option. I ended up carrying a notepad into the surgery with me so I could make…

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Spice Cake

December 23, 2016

Christmas is only a few days away and I’m probably feeling the least Christmassy, most anxiety-ridden in my entire life. Judging by my pretty erratic, limited posting on here and instagram it’s probably quite evident that uni life is taking up 90% of my time now. (PSA: this is going to get a tad ranty and is just so I can get it off my chest. Just scroooollll on down to the last paragraph if you wanna skip that). It’s…

Gingerbread Pancakes with Salted Treacle Butter

December 24, 2015

I’m getting used to the student kitchen life. I can deal with the crappy lighting and the 1 freezer drawer. That’s all fine. What I cannot wait to leave behind is the electric stove. It takes forever to heat up, forever to cool down and the arbitrary numbering system for ‘heat’ (numbered 1 to 6) doesn’t make anything easier. The saddest thing of all about the stove is that it’s a gargantuan challenge to cook pancakes properly on it. As you may know,…

A belated happy Thanksgiving to anyone who celebrates it! I’m still on the thanksgiving-prep-stress-train right now because I’m hosting turkey day for 13 people on Sunday. There’s gonna be parsnip & sage stuffing, double roasted cauliflower cheese, duck fat potatoes, sauteed brussels sprouts, and of course a turkey (which I’m attempting to spatchcock. Wish me luck). I’m not great at cooking for large groups of people becuase my brain can’t handle scaled up recipes so I have to plan and prep way…

August 9, 2015

Somewhere in-between last weekend’s hangover and this week’s flu I managed to bake these beauties. Of course if there was one thing that I would fit into the only day this week when I wasn’t bedridden, it would be baking. Thankfully I’m all better now and I’m avoiding any drinks above the 0% alcohol level so there should be PLENTY more time for food in my life (and so plenty more time for these babes).…

Gingerbread Layer Cake with Salted Whiskey Caramel {+ a Giveaway}

December 11, 2014

When it comes to gingerbread cookies I’ve never been that enthusiastic. I don’t think I’ve ever made them at home and successfully made them taste gingery or spicy enough (anyone got tips!?) but gingerbread cake is a whooole different ball game. I love when it has a syrupy, dense texture with a richness almost comparable to a brownie. Last year I created my all time favourite recipe for gingerbread cake in loaf form (it has pumpkin in it which I think…

This week has gone by so ridiculously fast! It’s been a good week – a celebration week: – my cookbook announcement (thanks everyone (again!) for all the super nice comments and tweets. You’ve made my face hurt from smiling all week). Oh and a sneaky a little bit of info: it’s 75 recipes – sweet and savoury (all the courses, you know it!!). Of course there are some vegan and some gluten free recipes in there too. – it’s the…

What is it with me and the loaf cakes at the moment? I have no idea why I keep making them. Kathryn tweeted that she thinks cake just tastes better when it’s loaf shaped, after making a super luscious Lemony Yoghurt Cake and I think I agree.…
