Garfield’s Pumpkin Pie

Garfield’s Pumpkin Pie

I’m a winter girl at heart – no doubt something to do with both my birthday and Christmas falling in the same month – but I also love autumn. The turning of the leaves, the chilly morning air and the near-permanent whiff of cinnamon wafting […]

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s a universally accepted fact that children are programmed to love ice cream. Now that summer appears to have returned, this might be just the thing to keep the wee ones busy for a few hours. Prior to this, I last attempted to make ice […]

Strawberry & Caerphilly Cheese Summer Crumble

Strawberry & Caerphilly Cheese Summer Crumble

I’ve been itching to post this recipe for a few weeks now, but kept delaying it in favour of child-friendly summer holiday recipes. Well, I can’t hold back any longer as before we know it, strawberries will be out of season! So here it is, […]

Salted Honey Pie

Salted Honey Pie

I know it might seem I’ve gone a bit pie crazy lately; but honestly, in this melting London summer heat, I can’t think of anything I want more (let’s ignore ice-cream for a moment here) than a slice of chilled pie. Especially when it’s drenched […]

Caramelised Orange & Almond Tart

Caramelised Orange & Almond Tart

This tart is the sunniest, juiciest dessert imaginable, and was partly inspired by Nigella Lawson’s caramelised oranges (in ‘Forever Summer’). I was recently daydreaming about a zesty, creamy orange tart – something along the lines of a simplified tart au citron. I searched for something […]

Dreamy Chocolate Cheesecake (Vegan)

Dreamy Chocolate Cheesecake (Vegan)

I’ve been thinking a lot about veganism recently. Although I’m not sure it’s a realistic option for a baking obsessive, and I don’t know if I could ever fully make the transition, I am attempting to cut eggs and dairy from my day-to-day diet as […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake

Today is Baking With Honey’s first birthday! I’ve been bursting to share this gorgeous cake recipe with you for a while now, but as it is most definitely a celebratory kind of cake, I wanted to wait for a suitable occasion. (Despite the fact that […]

Honey Nut Pie

Honey Nut Pie

This sweet and sticky pie came about because I was forever wondering what a pale, alternative version of a pecan pie would look like. I also have an addiction to honey roasted cashews. Once that bag is open, there’s no stopping me. On a recent […]

Classic Pecan Pie

Classic Pecan Pie

I’m well aware that I’m not very good at concealing my weakness for old American bakes. Grasshopper Pie, Blueberry Muffins, Brownies, Blondies, Lady Baltimore cake…. they are all here on this blog and they are all ridiculously good! So here’s another traditional American offering. Pecan […]

Dutch Apple Tart (Appeltaart)

Dutch Apple Tart (Appeltaart)

There is absolutely nothing better than the spicy-sweet autumnal smell of a freshly baked apple pie. We’ve all got a recipe for one, so I was keen to try a different twist on this family favourite.  I recently read an interview with sweet-toothed Dutch actress […]

Blackberry & Apple Crumble

Blackberry & Apple Crumble

Every August, I start monitoring the blackberry bushes on the south London common near our home. They surround – conveniently – the paths to the park and duck pond, standard places my daughter likes to frequent. As soon as the blackberries look plump and juicy […]

Grasshopper Pie [aka Peppermint Aero Pie]

Grasshopper Pie [aka Peppermint Aero Pie]

Grasshopper Pie, if you’ve not heard of it before, is a retro-classic American sweet pie. Particularly popular in the South, it’s a chocolate biscuit-crusted beauty full of peppermint flavoured, marshmallowy cream. Topped with more cream. I’ve lusted after it for a few years now, as […]
