Cinnamon & Blueberry Pumpkin Challah

As the title suggests – this is my creation of a blueberry and cinnamon pumpkin challah! I was slightly concerned when making this that the blueberries would be too wet and make the dough soggy – but by using blueberries sparingly they have not not had that dreaded effect. The bread is sweet but not […]

Cinnamon tangzhong wreath

This is a nice, light and sweet bread – and the wreath/couronne shape makes it look quite pretty, yet it’s really easy to form the shape with the cinnamon sugar filling, as the filling isn’t too wet! Like lots of my favourite bakes, it’s made using the tangzhong method – which ensures that it’s really soft and […]

The difference between using fresh blueberries and frozen, is that the fresh […]

I floated between wanting to make a sweet courgette tear bread with cinnamon spices or a savoury one with cheddar […]

Apple & Honey Challah

Cardamon & cinnamon spiced pistachio and honey chelsea buns

                    These tasted AMAZING! I mostly followed this recipe, which I stumbled across on google. The flavour combo is yummy. I’m thinking of salted caramel instead of honey next time, because I have a current obsession about salted caramel and want to put it in everything. […]

Apple, cinnamon & nut cupcakes with salted caramel drizzle

I was so excited to make these and they turned out so pretty! The topping is sticky and sweet but the cupcake is not too sugary so they go together nicely. I love the colours most of all; because I love yellow and there is a lot lot lot of yellow. We made way more […]
