This is a brilliant recipe for adding a little spice and fruit to your Easter baking. I like the recipe as it’s a subtle drop of spice and yummy currants, the decoration is fun for the children and you can have these finished off within the hour. Isla enjoyed decorating the biscuits and eating the chocolate icing too, who wouldn’t? Dr Oetker have many Easter recipes online if you want to try some Easter baking with the children this weekend.
This is a great recipe for a grown up alternative! The kiddies had chocolate spread, banana and also a little strawberry sauce. Mummy’s favourite is lemon and sugar. Daddy loves Bailey’s and I thought this recipe would be right up his street – especially with the added banana’s and walnuts. This is a fantastic recipe for any dessert, a great one to show off if you are hosting too.
A famous dessert in the area of Snowdonia, in Wales, is the Snowdon Pudding. Cottages.com sent me the recipe and I had to try it as I just love anything that can be served with custard. It is similar to a steamed pudding, made with suet and of course this recipe is vegetarian. We love the Snowdonia area and the weather in Wales makes it easy to enjoy this wonderful dessert.
When I was asked to try out one of John Torode’s recipes from his new cookbook, My Kind Of Food, I jumped at the chance. But then it hit me that this recipe is going to be complicated, its John, he’s a fantastic “master” chef! But I was pleasantly surprised that despite my lack of experience in the kitchen, I was able to produce the pie and it was scrumptious.

We were sent an amazing Sweet Treat Waffle Stick Maker recently to have some fun with making yummy waffle sticks. I thought it would be a brilliant way of having a dessert and getting Noah involved in making and decorating – that’s the fun part at that age! We made our waffles, well Daddy made them in the Waffle Stick Maker and me and Noah decorated them and ate them… yum yum. The recipe we used was a really simple one – Ingredients: 250g (9 oz) plain flour 1 dessertspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons caster sugar 1 teaspoon salt 450ml (16 fl oz) semi skimmed milk 2 eggs 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Preparation (5 mins): 1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add milk, eggs and oil; mix well. 2. Pour desired amount of batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. The idea of this Waffle Stick Maker is so simple, you make up your waffle mixture as above and the reason the ingredients includes oil is so that it doesn’t stick to the Waffle Stick Maker. You pour the desired amount in to the handy little jug, which gives just enough of the […]
