Salted Caramel Apple Cake

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…

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).…

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…

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…

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…

Strawberry & Rye Scones

July 7, 2017

Summer heat is taking over London at the moment! I think we’re all pretty confused in the UK because we can’t complain about it being cold and rainy? Also I’ve been watching some of the Wimbledon tennis here & there and man, the poor tennis players must be having peak times in the 30-degree heat :/ I’m finally getting a few days to myself with no work to do and just being able to see my friends from home for…

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…

Fig Jam, Apple & Hazelnut Crunch Overnight Oats

May 26, 2017

Ah exam period. This is probably the most stressed and busy I’ve been since A-levels. Probably something to do with how I have NINETY credits of modules this semester vs 30 credits last semester! My poor brain. I keep telling people to not give me any more facts because my brain cannot handle any more information. Luckily I’ve found the key to staying on track with revision is meal planning with my housemates and prepping breakfasts whenever possible but ESPECIALLY for exam…

Hot Cross Bagels

April 12, 2017

Woah this Easter break has gone by so FAST. I’ve been in London for just over 2 weeks now aaaand I’m slightly freaked out that exams start basically a month from today. But I’m ignoring that thought for a mo to tell you about my bagel x hot cross bun hybrid!! What we’ve got here is super chewy bagel dough, dotted with mixed dried fruit (which in the UK is basically currants, raisins and candied orange + lemon peel) and of…
