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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Sweet Potato & Cinnamon Breakfast Bread {Vegan}

June 5, 2016

I’ve been in a bit of a breakfast rut lately. I usually end up doing the ultimate lazy breakfast of a halved banana sandwiched together with peanut butter and sprinkled with cinnamon (#onbrand). It’s partially to do with the weather, of course. London can’t decide if it’s sunny or grey right now so I’m often thrown by what to have. It’s also partially because I’ve been trying to eat vegan meals for breakfast & lunch now (for environmental reasons) and…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Cheesecakes {Vegan, GF}

March 24, 2016

It’s finally Spring! I couldn’t be happier. The days are getting longer and warmer and soon there will be so many green veggies around that I’ve been missing/craving. It’s also almost Easter which basically means one thing – me eating all the chocolate.…
