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…

Kale and Soba Noodle Stir Fry

Some days all you need is a super quick and easy meal that doesn’t require a lot of effort, nor is there a strict recipe to follow. I always feel uncertain as to whether I should share some of this easier recipe with you all. In my head, you all know how to throw together…

Baked Chocolate Raspberry Doughnuts

This week, during Great British Bake Off’s Dairy Week, the contestants had to make a cake using cultured dairy (buttermilk, sour cream, yoghurt, etc) for their Signature Bake. While the contestants all made their cakes in Bundt tins, I did not. I made doughnuts. Baked doughnuts are much more cake-like than the fried varieties, so…

Chorizo Pull-Apart Bread

Week 3 of the Great British Bake Off was Bread Week. Bread Week is always an interesting one, because it can reveal some truly skillful bakers. I won’t forget Paul’s Bread Lion from Season 6 any time soon. So, as soon as the episode started – I knew that the signature challenge would be the…

Homemade Tim Tams

If Tim Tams were unavailable to you as a child (or even as an adult), this recipe name might confuse you. Tim Tams are a chocolate covered chocolate biscuit, with a cream filling in the middle. And they are delicious. As part of episode two of The Great British Bake Off, the bakers had to…

Asparagus Frittata

Every time I hear the word frittata, I can only picture it in Harrison Ford’s voice in Morning Glory, a movie about a morning talk show. If you don’t know what I’m talking about click here and go to the 2:35 mark. Anyway, I had a bunch of asparagus and mushrooms that needed using up,…

Gochujang Cauliflower

For those of you who don’t know, Gochujang is Korean red pepper paste. It’s the slightly spicy flavouring in a lot of Korean dishes – bibimbap, Korean fried chicken wings, bulgogi, etc. It’s delicious, pungent and lasts a really long time if stored in the fridge. I’ve been wanting to experiment with it for a…

Lemon Angel Cake Slice

Season 10 of The Great British Bake Off has begun, and I’d like to try and bake something inspired by each episode, if possible. I’m not much of a decorator, so I’m never going to decorate them quite like the bakers on GBBO do, but we’ll see how we go. If you’ve never watched Bake…
