Snow-Topped Festive Tiffin – A No-Bake Christmas Cake!

I’m going to jump right in here and declare my new-found love of tiffin. I always thought this traybake treat was something other people made – people who couldn’t bake maybe – and was of the opinion that it was a bit rubbish as every […]

Chocolate & Brazil Nut Banana Loaf

Chocolate & Brazil Nut Banana Loaf

A banana loaf was, if memory serves, the first cake I made from Nigella Lawson’s undisputed classic, How To Be A Domestic Goddess. The unmistakeable, sweetly nostalgic scent of baked banana filled the kitchen and my heart burst with pride as I pulled the golden […]

Chocolate Melting Moments aka YoYo Biscuits

I’d forgotten all about these bite-size morsels until last year. During one of our many trips to the theatre to see (the outrageously good) Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, my friend James surreptitiously opened up a Tupperware box full of homemade YoYo biscuits, just as the lights […]
