We all love chocolate cake in our house and especially a cake with lots of buttercream and ganache! So we were very happy to try this recipe out this weekend. It also made the perfect pudding for our friends who came over for lunch on Sunday, both the grown ups and kids loved it. Click here to see how we got on.

Can’t believe it’s week 4 of the bake off already! As we were away at the weekend, I made these for pudding on Friday night as a treat. I didn’t think there would be time to make them after school on Friday with the girls as it seems to take about twice the amount of time when they help! So I made them in stages throughout the day by myself and then baked time in time for pudding, Click here to see how I got on.

Up until about 4 years ago I rarely baked bread, Rich didn’t really eat gluten so I didn’t really have any reason to make it. But when he started eating gluten again I slowly started making more bread and trying different things and now I’m totally addicted and bake bread at least once a week but usually 4-5 times! I make a loaf or two of milk bread most weeks, as it’s lovely and soft and perfect for toast in the morning, so I was very excited to see the bakers giving it a go. I also love trying new breads for lunch at the weekend and with the weather turning colder we’ll definitely be having soup and bread for lunch a lot more.

After the success of the malt loaf last week the girls were keen to have a go at making the jammy biscuits after school on Friday. Emily loved watching the GBBO again and is already planning a gingerbread biscuit construction for Christmas! Click here to take a look at our attempt at making jammy biscuits.

We are all super excited in our house that the GBBO is back on and we couldn’t wait for it to get started! Once again we have done plenty of baking over the last year but struggled to find the time to upload any of it, so thanks to the GBBO I’ll be making a bit more of an effort over the next few months. Emily and Chloe absolutely loved watching the first episode and were very keen to help out, click here to see how we got on.

Incy Wincy Spider Cake

When it was Emily’s second Birthday I made her an Old MacDonald cake as it was her favourite nursery rhyme at the time. So for Chloe’s second Birthday I thought I would do the same and one of her favourites is Incy Wincy Spider. Click here to see this cute cake.

Giant Toadstool Fairy Cake

At the end of October it was Emily’s 5th Birthday, so time to have some fun making her a super special cake. Emily loves to plan things (no idea where she gets that from!) and luckily once she has an idea she generally doesn’t change her mind. This year she really wanted a giant toadstool cake with some fairies and very specifically the toadstool needed to be red with white spots and a pointed one not a flatter round one.

Gingerbread Buche de Noel

I couldn’t resist baking one last thing for 2020, despite it just being Rich and I for NYE I really wanted to make a Christmas log. We all love gingerbread in our house so when I saw this recipe in the Christmas Olive magazine I added it to my list of Christmas recipes. Click here to see the recipe.

Last week was a busy week of baking and here is another delicious Christmassy recipe that we made. I haven’t done a lot of gluten free baking recently as Rich is no longer following a gluten free diet. But these sounded good, especially the pastry made with marzipan in it.

Baileys Pecan Blondies

Each Christmas there’s always one recipe that stands out above the rest and this year it’s these blondies. Super gooey, nutty and a wonderful caramel flavour make these blondies really special. I cut the recipe out of Olive magazine last year as I didn’t get round to trying it, so it was top of my list this year. Click here to see the recipe.
