Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes - a Bounty/Mound bar in cupcake form!

So, Avengers: Age of Ultron was released in the UK this week. I went to the midnight premier on Wednesday night because I’m a nerd like that and I hate waiting! I’m not going to give you any spoilers don’t worry, I know it’s not released in the US until next week. I was a bit underwhelmed by it though if I’m being honest, but there were lots of awesome parts. All I’ll say though is I’m so glad that was Joss Whedon’s last MCU movie, I love his TV work but he cannot write Marvel, he ruins it! Bring on the Russos and Civil War (although I’m still mad that they’re doing that!). Who else has seen it? Or is planning on seeing it? Do let me know your thoughts!

Oh profiteroles, so delicious yet so misunderstood! Profiteroles with warm chocolate sauce are one of my absolute favourite desserts but they get a bit of a bad rap because they’re considered “too 70’s”. Lots of good things came out of the 70’s – Abba! Okay bad example, I hate Abba… um, Disco? Okay, you’ve caught me, my 70’s knowledge isn’t very good, in my defence I was born in the 80’s! All that really matters though is profiteroles were popular in the 70’s and profiteroles are awesome, so that makes the 70’s awesome in my book!

Easter Rocky Road Brownies

Easter sneaked up on me this year, it always does when we have it early! I know the date of Easter is decided by the equinox (I think?) but I do wish it was the same date every year, because I just get confused! So I was a bit late baking something for Easter to share with you guys, but there’s still a week to go and plenty of time for you to bake up these amazing brownies! Or, if you have your Easter baking planned, take advantage of all the discounted Easter chocolate on April 7th and bake these after! Either way, everybody is gonna love them!

Mango Banana Bread

{disclaimer: I received products from Kitchen Craft to review, all opinions and words are my own}

Is it just me or does this winter seem to be dragging on forever? We’ve been pretty lucky here in my part of the UK, we barely had any snow so I can’t complain too much. But the days are just so grey and dreary, it’s becoming very depressing. Trying to take decent photos in this weather is not a fun task either. The sun is out today though so I’m happy! We did have a solar eclipse this morning (that I slept through, oops!) so I think the sun may be protesting over the moon stealing it’s light! Did anybody see it? I think it was only visible in parts of Europe, and you only got the full effect if you’re very north like Scotland and Norway.

Lime and Ginger Crème Brûlée

Creamy custard  with a zingy, zesty Lime & Ginger flavour, with a crunchy caramelised sugar topping. The key to the wonderful and fresh taste is fresh root ginger!

Lime and Ginger crème brûlée

I love Crème Brûlée, I mean who doesn’t? A luxuriously smooth and creamy custard that you have to break through a crunchy caramelised sugar topping to get to, like a delicious little treasure hunt! Despite my love for this little tasty adventure I’d never made it before, but then Santa left me a cook’s blowtorch {affiliate link} under the tree and crème brûlée had to be the first thing I made using it!
