Fluffy vanilla, gluten free cupcakes loaded with sprinkles, topped with my favourite whipped vanilla buttercream and even more sprinkles. These Funfetti Cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate my (or your) birthday!
It’s my birthday!! Yay! Today I turn 21 *ahem* plus 10 years *ahem*!
I was not particularly thrilled about turning 30 last year, but this last year turned out to be pretty awesome. I started a new job, some really awesome new people came into my life, I moved to a really gorgeous area of London, and I’ve baked some delicious treats and mixed some amazing cocktails. That’s a pretty good year by my books!
Buttery, melt in your mouth shortbread, smothered in sweet, fruity jam and topped with even more buttery goodness in the form of shortbread streusel. These Jam Shortbread Cookie Bars are the most delicious cookie bar you will ever eat. They are gluten free, ridiculously quick and easy to make, and so yummy you won’t believe it! Don’t need to eat gluten free? No worries, one simple substitution means you don’t have to go out of your way to buy gluten free flour! These Jam Shortbread Cookie Bars are the perfect Mother’s Day treat, and you can use your favourite flavour jam!
Mother’s Day Champagne Cocktail
When I asked my mum what she wanted me to make for Mother’s Day, she said a cocktail and something with shortbread! I’ve already shared the amazing Champagne Cocktail that I made for her, and now it’s time for the shortbread to take the spotlight. She has given up chocolate for March (aka torture) so something sweet and fruity it was! I got the inspiration for these Jam Shortbread Cookie Bars when I was in Tesco, lusting over a packet of Jammie Dodgers – a classic British biscuit (*ahem* cookie) that is jam sandwiched between shortbread! I’ve made my own homemade version of Jammie Dodgers before, which are so good, but I took the idea to the next level with these Jam Shortbread Cookie Bars.

British style pancakes, but not as you know them! Fluffy pancake batter baked into pancake cupcakes, topped with mini pancakes, zesty lemon buttercream frosting and a thick lemon sugar syrup. A new and delicious way to enjoy pancakes this Pancake Day!
Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras… whatever you call it, it’s a day celebrated and marked across the world. It comes the day before Ash Wednesday, the day that Lent starts, and this year it falls in February 28th – this coming Tuesday. Traditionally it’s the day you get ready for fasting by using up all your staples in your kitchen and one last chance to gorge on what you will be giving up for Lent. In the UK, we traditionally have pancakes because it’s a simple way to use up eggs, flour and sugar – hence why we call it “Pancake Day”. Of course, it’s not entirely necessary these days as most people don’t fully fast for Lent, rather we just give up one of our vices, but traditions are still fun to have right?

This Gluten Free Skillet Brownie Sundae for Two is so incredible, I think it could be classified as a love potion. If you serve this deliciousness to your Valentine on Tuesday I can almost guarantee they won’t be able to help falling madly in love with you! They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and I think that’s true of women too – and the effects are increased if there’s also chocolate, booze, caramel and ice cream. You can’t argue with these scientific facts I just made up!
A deliciously tempting mini 6″ cake that is naturally gluten and dairy free! Moist hazelnut cake with plum filling and dairy free cinnamon frosting. It’s delicious and easy to make, with no oil needed!
The first month of 2017 is almost over, and what a year it’s been already! It’s hard to ignore politics at the moment, but for our own personal sanity I think it’s a good idea to take a step away from it for a while. Just sit down with a cup of coffee, a good book and a slice of Plum and Hazelnut Cake with Cinnamon Frosting and have some “me” time in the midst of all the craziness. Doesn’t that sound good right now? So take a moment to grab this amazing recipe and then switch off for a while, you deserve it!
