It’s Semlor Bun Season

For as long as I can remember, Semlor buns have been on my ‘to bake’ list. It’s taken me a while to get round to making them due to the time commitment required. Originating from Sweden, the buns have a specific season in which they can be enjoyed, as soon as Christmas is over, the…

Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread

The craze for these cookies has blown all of social media into a frenzy, and after making my first batch I can see why. Voted one of the best cookie recipes on Instagram I can see why however I still can’t quite bring myself to call these a cookie, in English terms, they are most definitely a…

Coffee Blondies

You’d think making blondies without any chocolate would be impossible, right? You’re wrong. After seeing Sarah Kieffers’ Instagram post about these I put them straight to the top of the list of bakes. These are gorgeous, gooey bites of naughtiness, full of coffee flavour and fudginess. I can’t wait to get my hands on her cookbook…

Mango Pannacotta

A truly Pinterest-worthy dessert, set on a slant to achieve the appearance, a vibrant layer of lightly set mango jelly, creamy vanilla pannacotta, topped with chopped mango and a physalis.
