Bread & Buns

Bajan Coconut Sweet Bread

Bajan Coconut Sweet Bread

The summer holidays are almost here and we couldn’t be more excited! We had such an enjoyable break last year and we are looking forward to lots more family fun times this year, too – the highlight being a holiday in beautiful west Wales, in […]

Cardamom & Vanilla Scones With Lemon Curd

Cardamom & Vanilla Scones With Lemon Curd

What pops into your head when you think about traditional English baked goods? I immediately think of Victoria sponge, closely followed by sticky toffee pudding, shortbread and scones! Scones oozing with jam and cream is the version we all know but I’ve really enjoyed playing […]

Easy Double Duty Dough: For Vegan Naans & Pizza

Easy Double Duty Dough: For Vegan Naans & Pizza

Who doesn’t love freshly made bread? Nothing beats it, but I know a lot of people are a bit nervous about having a go at home. If you’ve never made any kind of bread before, this is a great recipe to start with. And if […]

Ontbijtkoek “Breakfast Cake” aka Dutch Spice Bread

Ontbijtkoek “Breakfast Cake” aka Dutch Spice Bread

Happy New Year! I know we are well into January (ahem, approaching February), and I’m not entirely sure when the cut-off date is, but Happy New Year all the same! Isn’t it cold? London has been thickly coated in frost for what seems like forever, and […]

Swedish Semlor Buns (Shrove Tuesday Buns)

Swedish Semlor Buns (Shrove Tuesday Buns)

I’m always excited to dip my toe into Scandinavian creations, so when I first saw a photograph of these I just had to give them a go! Semlor buns are a massively popular bakery treat and were traditionally enjoyed during the run-up to Lent, but […]

Southern Corn Bread

Southern Corn Bread

This is a classic. It’s the perfect way to mop up your plate of chilli or any spicy stew really – and as it’s winter, there’s plenty of those going on in this house! It is also now my vegan topping of choice for my […]

Vintage Swedish Tea Ring

Vintage Swedish Tea Ring

I’ve got a bit of a weakness for Scandinavian inspired recipes. Previous offerings on this blog include Havrebrød (oat and honey loaf) and the thrifty Bondepige Med Slør. Swedish Tea Ring (sometimes called a ‘garland’ or just bread) is a gem of a recipe. It’s […]

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

This versatile (and Hallowe’en-appropriate) recipe was inspired by a batch of delicious pumpkin and chocolate chip cookies whipped up by my lovely friend James. I was trying to work out an unfussy recipe to use up the flesh scooped out of our obligatory Hallowe’en pumpkin, and […]

Easy Focaccia

Easy Focaccia

I put this recipe together this afternoon, when I realised we had no garlic bread to go with our pasta supper – and was also wondering what to do with the left over sun dried tomatoes lurking in the fridge! It turned out so amazingly […]

Sicilian-inspired Bread

Sicilian-inspired Bread

The beauty of living and working in the cultural melting pot that is London, is that you get chatting with people from all over the world – and I love to ask what food reminds them of home. Their favourite local dishes never fail to […]

Wholemeal & White (’50/50′) Loaf

Wholemeal & White (’50/50′) Loaf

After the decadence of my previous post, I felt it was necessary to share something a little more wholesome. I also thought it was about time I included a basic bread recipe on my blog as it’s something I make so frequently, but was worried […]

Chelsea Buns [Cinnamon Rolls]

Chelsea Buns [Cinnamon Rolls]

I woke up yesterday with a sudden memory flash of school dinners. As I’ve mentioned before in a previous post about Cornflake Crunchies, I have rather happy memories of school dinners, although admittedly most of these involved primary school desserts as opposed to the reckless […]
