8 Tropical jams to spark creativity in kiddies

8 Tropical jams to spark creativity in kiddies

I love jam, I have it on a lot of food; jam on toast or jam on scones (perfect for a family picnic in the garden). It seems to be my happy food during lockdown. It’s now getting to that time of the year when the fruits are starting to grow and will soon be ready for picking, so we can make our very own jams. The following are Tropical Jams that I wish the supermarkets would sell, or I could get hold of the fruits to make it ourselves.  VIEW the POST

#Recipe – Peanut butter cupcakes with a surprise

SKIPPY® sent us two tubs of their yummy Peanut Butter: Extra Crunchy and Creamy. We love Peanut Butter cupcakes, funnily enough I can't eat it out of the jar (unlike my husband). It is delicious in cupcakes and muffins. So, Hubby has been making Super Chunky toast, whilst I have been busy baking. This is my fun recipe with a surprise centre! Can you guess what is inside?

A quick recipe for Victoria Sponge

A quick recipe for Victoria Sponge

 I absolutely love victoria sponge cakes: they are quick and easy to make and taste delicious with a cup of tea. The sponge mix in this recipe is so light and fluffy, it is perfect and if you are in a hurry - don't worry! This took me an hour to make, I left it to cool for half an hour and then added the filling. I used a brilliant product to get this cake done quickly, Tesco do the Betty Crocker ready made icing and buttercream, so when I saw the vanilla buttercream style icing, I couldn't resist making a wonderful cake to have with it.

I had been given a fantastic recipe from Tate & Lyle for Raspberry jam drop biscuits and adapted it slightly to make my own version with what I had in the cupboards. VIEW the POST
