One of the most comforting puddings has to be a crumble. Now the nights are drawing in and there’s a chill in the air it is time to do some comfort baking and these definitely hit the spot! Click here to turn this classic pudding into some scrummy cupcakes.
If you like our Facebook page you’ll have seen that a month ago today, Becky gave birth to a beautiful baby girl – Emily Charlotte Phillips! I took the first opportunity I had to go down and meet her. I wanted to take down a cake, so with the help of mum (who made the rocky road cake for me!) I created this very rushed cake.

Every year for Tom’s birthday I make him a cake. This year it’s a bit late since we were on holiday but I promised I’d make him something to take to work when we got back. It took a while to come up with an idea but I went through a list of things Tom likes and cakes I’ve made, and realised I’ve never made him a cheese-related cake. More cheese please!
Our parents have a bumper crop of plums this year, so I decidedout some new plum recipes. I think this one was from an old Waitrose magazine, it sounded really good and I had all the ingredients in the cupboard, so thought I would give it a go. Click here to try this delicious plum recipe.
Autumn has definitely arrived – we’ve had a couple of mornings with frost, some very wet weather and the pavements are starting to get covered in leaves. So for the first cross-country race of the season a few weeks ago I decided to make some autumn-themed cupcakes for after the race. On the day of the race, it was actually extremely mild – not like a typical cross-country race day – which made a nice change! I also really enjoyed the race. The course was great – undulating with a few muddy sections and a water jump (which was my favourite bit – it helped to cool me down!) Click here to keep reading.
I have to admit, that like all contestants on the GBBO, I have never made a souffle! I love to eat them, but for some reason, I have never got round to making one, so this week I was actually a bit nervous – especially as you regularly see failed souffles on cookery programmes.

It must be time for another blackberry recipe! I haven’t baked any cupcakes for a while, so thought I would make some seasonal ones. I made some chocolate cherry ones a few months ago and liked the idea of combining dark chocolate with the fruit. I also love the colour from the blackberries so added a blackberry puree to the buttercream, to give a pretty pinky purple colour. I also used the left over blackberry and white chocolate ganache to put in the middle of the cupcakes – delicious! Click here to have a go at the recipe.
