St Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday, don’t you think? It’s a great excuse to just let your hair down and have fun, and that 1/16 of Irish you have in you comes out to party! My family on my dad’s side was Irish, but despite that and living in the UK my whole life I have only been to Ireland once, which is just terrible I know. I definitely want to go back, it’s such a beautiful country with so much to explore. Have you been to Ireland? Where would you recommend visiting?

Coffee and butterscotch might seem like a somewhat odd combination when you first see it, but just think about it – the deep, richly bitter flavour of espresso combined with the rich, buttery, caramelly goodness of butterscotch? Starting to sound irresistable now? Trust me, it is! I first tried this combination in a milkshake from Ed’s Diners (it’s an American themed diner here in the UK, they’re pretty good) and you can combine any flavours together and one day I went with coffee and butterscotch – and boy am I glad I did! You guys, it’s sooooo good! I KNEW I needed to bake that drool worthy combo together ASAP. I circled through a lot of ideas before finally landing on these amazing Espresso and Butterscotch Viennese Whirls!

Burnt Caramel Latte Ice Cream Float

My favourite Starbucks drink homemade and extra indulgent. Rich espresso and burnt caramel syrup topped with foamy milk, with lashings of thick burnt caramel sauce. Served with a scoop of coffee ice cream, fresh whipped cream and even more burnt caramel sauce. Your morning coffee like you’ve never seen it before!

Served with a scoop of coffee ice cream, fresh whipped cream and even more burnt caramel sauceUp until about a year ago there were two foods that I hated, and I was very vocal about that hatred. Those foods? Avocado and coffee! Fast forward to now and they’re probably two of the things I consume the most, I LOVE them. As a baker, I’m fully aware that coffee makes chocolate taste awesome, so I’m quite seasoned at putting it in chocolate cake. But I decided I needed to train myself to like coffee so I could bake with it as the main flavour, and somehow it worked. Now I can’t function without my morning coffee (that might have something to do with the caffeine though!) and the baristas at my local Starbucks know me by name. I hold my hands up and admit that I was wrong about coffee and I humbly apologise to it! And by way of apology, my first main coffee recipe is this Burnt Caramel Latte Ice Cream Float!
