Chocolate Pecan Pie

October 10, 2018

*Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post After a little trip to Ireland to help host a food photography workshop with Eva, I came back to my new flat and finally, after 3 weeks, christened the oven by baking this pie. Pies aren’t something I bake that often, usually because I’m so impatient and the idea of chilling, rolling out dough, blind baking and all that is not what I’m after. The ONE type of pie that I am willing…

DIY Birthday Cake Oreos

Food Blogger Izy Hossack makes DIY Birthday Cake Oreos

Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post A few months ago I got ROPED INTO* making some ‘Drake on Cake’ style vegan funfetti cakes for my mate Laura’s wedding. Using my prior knowledge of the uselessness of British sprinkles to produce a satisfying funfetti effect (the sprinkles here are always naturally dyed so they just lose all colour upon folding into cake batter), on visiting the US I left room in my suitcase for a) American multicoloured sprinkles and b)…

Chocolate & Blackberry Choux Buns

Chocolate & Blackberry Choux Buns

  Choux pastry is one of those things which is just hella delicious but I always forget about it as a fancy dessert option. The main times I’ve made it have been for large family gatherings and for my GCSE food tech project in which I made choux bun/cupcake hybrids which looked like swans once a week for 2 months (..don’t even ask). I think they’re a bit like soufflés in how they seem really fancy and difficult to make but…

Malted Pretzel Millionaire’s Shortbread

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…

Cherry, Chocolate & Hazelnut Torte

July 18, 2017

Growing up I remember leafing through my mum’s cookbook, searching for the particular recipe that I wanted to make that day. I would look out for the signposts e.g. the page with the post it note on it, the page with a magazine cut-out of a brownie recipe with its gloriously vintage photo… It was easier to remember the location of certain recipes in that book like the chocolate chip & almond torte situated on the final pages. That’s the…

Fresh Mint & Chocolate Chip Popsicles

June 26, 2017

I’ve been in New York for a week doing promo for The Savvy Cook which was really fun but also HOT. I’ve never experienced summer in New York before so now I totally understand why people try to get the heck outta town when it heats up! The only positive thing about weather this warm is that ice cream and iced coffee are appropriate every day. I made these popsicles just before I went away because I was planning ahead…

Double Chocolate Malt Cake

Double Chocolate Malt Cake

Owing to the fact that my brain is a bit dead since finishing my literature review last week, I’ve been struggling to motivate myself to write about this cake. Thus, I’m keeping it super short & sweet today because honestly, I don’t think I need to do much talking about this cake anyway – the title is almost enough!…

Chocolate Chip Wholemeal Challah Bread {Vegan}

November 10, 2016

I’ve been a bit bread-obsessed lately – well, I always am, just more so at the moment. I find myself opting for lightly-sweetened bready goods over dessert come winter. Popping a slice of challah into the toaster and catching it a few minutes later at that caramelised but aaaaaalmost burnt stage, and slathering it in peanut butter is my post-uni snack of choice.…

(Eggless) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

April 11, 2016

Uhh so this ice cream happened very randomly. I wasn’t specifically planning on it – I’d made a malty vanilla ice cream to go with some rhubarb cake but also had cookie dough in the fridge (wooh for weekends!). Put that together and you get this treat and a half. I was tempted to make chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream sandwiches (#SoMeta) but I stopped myself.…
