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…

Parsnip Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze

Parsnip Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze-3

I’m a big fan of using vegetables in dessert. I mean, I now eye roll when people do the whole ‘well it’s got vegetables in it so I can eat it for breakfast right!? ha ha ha’. Mate, if you want to eat cake for breakfast, you do you. Don’t need to justify it!! I’m all on board the cake train. What I DO like about the vegetable addition is that a) it sometimes can bring a different aspect of…

Lazy Girl’s Zucchini Spaghetti [no fancy tools required!] with Peas, Crème Fraîche and Pesto

June 16, 2013

Am I late to this party? Has the ship already sailed? Does everyone know about not using stupid mandolines to cut zucchini into ribbons? Ima pretend that this is brand new information and I have discovered the lazy way to make zucchini spaghetti, i.e. without a mandoline or peeler or spiralizer. No fancy tools required. We are going to use the humble box grater to create those luscious strands of goodness. You may wonder why I’m hating on mandolines so much.…

Wholegrain Lemon Poppy Seed Layer Cake {and Spenser Magazine}

April 1, 2013

So, a few weeks ago I was asked if I would contribute to the re-launch issue of Spenser Magazine with an interview type thing and a recipe! Of course I said yes!  and so came about this Wholegrain Lemon Poppy Seed Layer Cake (my first time shooting a layer cake too!!) because as we all know, I am a die-hard fan of lemon cake. It’s got oats, whole wheat flour, wheat germ and buttermilk in it, and it’s layered with an awesome lemon-cream cheese…

The Best Mac and Cheese (with tortellini)

March 5, 2013

I have a confession, It’s something only a few people that know me in real life know; I hardly know anything about pop-culture (well, I do like pre-2006 when I used to watch TMF and theHits… now, I consider it an achievement if I know Rhianna’s latest song). I don’t do it, I don’t know it, I can’t understand it. You know my Harry Styles / Taylor Swift reference in my deep-dish cookie post? Yeah that one. It’s literally the only celebrity…

100 Calorie Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

December 10, 2012

So you know when it’s Christmas? And you’re getting all excited about christmas? You are so going christmas shopping, you make christmassy things, you get to wrap up presents…. and then there’s the christmas food. Amirite?   Like seriously, SERIOUSLY, the food. I’m not even talking about actual legitimate Christmas food (mince pies, gingerbread, candy canes, advent calendar chocolates), but just ALL FOOD. For some reason, when it’s around Christmas time (who am I kidding) as soon as the calendar…

Spiced, Brown Butter Pumpkin Pretzels with Coffee Cream Cheese Icing (+ How to shape pretzels)

October 15, 2012

It’s no secret that it’s Autumn now – it’s already getting dark and cold at 4 pm, I’m constantly wearing jumpers, Starbucks has brought the Pumpkin Spice Latte to the UK, and Whole Foods has a huge stack of Libby’s Pumpkin tins piled up. I’ve never usually been one for following themes – I’m 16 and I already barely even celebrate Halloween – so I’m not quite into baking ‘themed’ food – unless you count DELICIOUS as a theme that is 😉 But, after…

Cinnamon Roll Baked Doughnuts

June 27, 2012

What are birthdays for? Presents, movies, inside-joke-filled birthday cards? Yeah, all that. But about 90% of the birthday celebration day is all about food. To the reals. So when it was one of my best friend’s birthdays last week, I knew I had to make something special : About 3 years ago, in the winter, me and Bea decided to go to Oxford Street for Christmas Sale Shopping. Of course, it started to snow / rain, as whenever we meet…

Lemon Swan Cupcakes

April 7, 2012

Yes, really, more lemon, it is such a bright flavour, perfect for this time of year where it’s only starting to get dark at 6 pm. It’s the Easters holidays, full of more revision – made a little more bearable by the (now half empty) bag of Easter themed Hershey’s kisses on my desk. But also, time for shopping in Whole Foods, watching The Hunger Games, pedalos in Hyde park, and pinterest. (A pinterest ramble is about to come btw) Am I the only one who accidentally clicks ‘follow’ on…
