Pumpkin Ricotta Pancakes

November 3, 2017

Continuing on from a recent post’s theme of me being ill, I had planned to make these pumpkin ricotta pancakes a few weekends ago when my friend came to visit me in Leeds. That was when I came down with the flu so instead of pancakes she made me a Lemsip and I managed to force myself to eat some toast. Man, losing your appetite and then sense of taste is a major bummer.…

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…

Instarecipe! Pumpkin Yogurt Cornbread {+ a Taste of London Giveaway}

October 21, 2015

Cornbread, a.k.a. food of the Gods. It’s probably one of my favourite brunch foods and epitomises that lazy-Saturday-morning feeling, for me. I was craving it badly last weekend. As I had some extra roasted squash hanging out in the fridge, I mashed it up and stirred it into my usual cornbread batter (the recipe for which is from my cookbook, Top With Cinnamon.) All you need is one bowl to whip this up in and you’ll have a lofty, golden…

Instarecipe! Earl Grey Quinoa Oatmeal with Pumpkin Spice Purée

October 10, 2015

I’ve spent my life eating normal, rolled oats as porridge and I’ve never been much of a fan. The texture is too blaaahhh and always makes me feel nauseous so I can’t finish the bowl. I inevitably end up hungry and grumpy – nooot good. The steel-cut-oat world had somehow eluded me until my mum found them here in the UK with the name ‘pinhead oats’. They do take a bit more time to cook (20 minutes vs. 5 minutes)…

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…

Banana Pumpkin Caramel Cake {GF}

April 23, 2012

I have a friend, she’s crazy, super awesome and I probably spend way too much time with her. We laugh in the same way, we talk in the same way, and our inside joke list goes on for literally a whole wall: She laughs at my pronunciation of words and my ‘disappointed face’ which I make when she fails at general knowledge or understanding (she once texted me asking how to make the ‘big brownie’ into ‘little brownies’ i.e. that…
