Butternut Squash Galette

Autumn is a great time of year for fresh produce, and I love when squash is everywhere. Butternut squash is a great, diverse vegetable that can be used in so many ways. You’ve already seen me use it in risotto. soup and plainly roasted. You also know how much I love dough and throwing things…

Orange Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

My final GBBO-inspired bake comes in the form of a chocolate cake. While the bakers had to make a chocolate layer cake, I opted out of the layers in order to bring this delicious, moist, secretly vegan chocolate cake. This cake came about after someone asked me if I could make a dairy free cake…

White Chocolate Pistachio Tartlets

So, Bake Off is over, but I still have two GBBO-inspired bakes to share on the blog. Life is always hectic in November, and this year hasn’t been any different. But, I did get there in the end. I’ve done both bakes, and will post the Finale-inspired bake in the next few days. But for…

Tomato Tarte Tatin

I’m a few weeks behind on my Great British Bake Off inspired bakes, thanks to actually getting out on the weekends and doing things, so I do apologise that this post is going up around the same time as the Finale is being aired. First off, don’t bother making your own puff pastry. Honestly, it’s…

Fig & Honey Cake

I’m still working on a million and one recipes to use my Heilala Vanilla Extracts in, and I also received my copy of the e-recipe book created by Cloudy Kitchen. They 10 recipes that Erin has whipped up all look delicious, I just haven’t got round to making any of them yet. It’s been a…

Chocolate Chip Challah Rolls

Prior to this moment, I’ve never made or eaten challah. However, I follow Mandy on Instagram, and her challah always look amazing. For those who don’t know (because I didn’t), challah is a special bread in Jewish cuisine that is eaten on special occasions and holidays. Now I’m telling you this because it feeds well…

Berry Vanilla Waffles

It’s not often that I want waffles, but when I do, I want them to be crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and delicious through and through. I’ve been eyeing up this waffle iron at one of the only bake shops we have in Hong Kong, and I finally got round to purchasing…

Vanilla Latte Meringue Layer Cake

Week 6 of the Great British Bake Off saw Dessert Week – which meant a step away from traditional cakes, and a look at more luxurious techniques and styles. The signature challenge was a meringue layer cake, the technical was verrines (layered panna cotta type things) and the showstopper was a dessert bombe. I opted…

Pink Champagne Layer Cake

It was 1920s week on the Great British Bake Off, which meant custard tarts for their signature bake, beignet souffles for the techinical and prohibition cakes for the showstopper challenge. And for the first time so far, I went for the showstopper challenge. Now, I must confess, my cake does not look anywhere near as…

Fig, Brussels Sprouts & Goat’s Cheese Flatbread

When you need something easy, to use up ingredients that you have in the fridge, or just because it’s fig season, trust me when I say that this should be your go to recipe. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. It’ll hit every craving you have and then some. I promise. Ingredients 1 onion, thinly sliced40…

No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

Sometimes I make something, and everyone who tries it loves it. This cheesecake was one of those. I took it to the office for our monthly birthday party day, on the same day that I took the Chocolate Raspberry Doughnuts, and it was devoured. I figured, given that it was so popular – and it…

Gochujang Tofu Bowl

I told you I’d come up with some more recipes using gochujang. This time, using tofu. Another vegetarian- and vegan-friendly meal for you all to try. This one takes a couple of days to make, as I highly recommend marinating the tofu in the gochujang sauce at least overnight in the fridge, if not for…
