Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

… Take two. I first made cookie dough brownies months and months ago but I decided to recreate them this week and share the recipe. It’s been a busy week for birthdays and I’m currently -1 cake in debt (sorry Mummy). This week’s bake doubled as a birthday bake and charity bake – two birds, []

Toffee Bundt Cake with Coffee Glaze

Remember that scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding when Ian’s mother brings a bundt to Toula’s mother, Maria and she gets all confused… Yeah I made a BONDTTTT cake today. And stuck flowers in it because that’s now a thing. This cake, although masssssiiivvveeee was really simple to make and bundt cakes are so []

Chocolate Fudge Brownie

These don’t need much of an introduction. Fudgy, chewy, rich with chunks of cadbury milk chocolate… These are the stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth kind of brownies with perfect chewy edges.  Also, no mixer and no beating for endless hours! Have I tempted you yet? So I finally finished my exams this week! *aaaaaand breathe out* and perhaps more []

Quick and easy banana bread

One bowl, one whisk, minimal fuss. Seriously, this is fool proof. And so easily adaptable! When I make it for myself, I substitute half the flour for wholemeal flour and reduce the sugar by a few tablespoons. You can add pretty much anything you like to the batter and it will be just fine. The []

Chocolate Chip Brown Butter Blondies

It’s been hot here. The heatwave was intense. My international readers might look upon us Brits with mild amusement for melting in British summer sun but really, I was in Central London on the hottest day in England for like, 9 years and it was 37 degrees! I mean, fair enough it has dropped 10 []

Brown Butter and Salted Caramel Cake & My 21st Birthday

What are my favourite things in life? Ummm let me think… Salted caramel, brown butter, Biscoff, caramelised white chocolate and cheesecake. Yep, that’s pretty much it. And that’s exactly the logic I followed when deciding what to make for my own birthday cake. It’s a big year, I was feeling the pressure from all angles. []

Christmas: Chocolate Biscuits & Tree Decorations

*cue Michael Bublé* – what does this guy do for the other 11 months of the year? That is the real question. Christmas baking always gets me in the mood for Christmas, I was a little stuck for ideas this year and although I LOVED last year’s Christmas bake (still my favourite bake to date), []

Essays. Essays alllll around. For the foreseeable future and then some. It’s this kinda time of the year when exam stress kicks in and the library becomes the closest thing you have to a social life and talking about your individual work load becomes the new gossip.

Brookies

I know what you’re thinking.. That looks like the cookie of my dreams but I can’t fathom the effort of making not one, but two cookie doughs! I’m not here to tell you that it’s the quickest, most convenient cookie recipe of all time, but I will say that it’s not difficult and the effort []

Coffee Cake

Easter holidays have become synonymous with family gatherings. I’m not sure about you, but in our family that means one thing: food. Food in the morning, food for elevenses, food for twelveses etc etc. The steady stream of grazing requires a constant supply of something sweet, not something fancy or posh. Just something light and []

Red Velvet Melt-In-The-Middle Cookies

Happy (almost) Valentines day! Thought I’d recreate the old favourite triple chocolate melt-in-the-middle cookies with this festive twist. Everyone loves red velvet, right?! Although these don’t have the typical tang of red velvet, they’re super tasty and really eye-catching. They take about 20 minutes to throw together, and then you just have to chill them in []

Mini Banana Bread Muffins

Hi guysssss, I’m back! Well, almost anyway. I’ve finished all my coursework for the year and it was such a traumatising experience. I mean,  when your laptop breaks the DAY before 11,500 words worth of essays is due in, it’s stress, trauma, panic and all the rest of it! I’m not sure how I emerged alive []

Flake Biscuits

I originally saw these floating around on instagram and immediately thought OMG BEST IDEA EVER! My mum’s all time favourite chocolate bar is Cadbury Flake and I just knew she would be all over these. I actually made them a few weeks ago for Eid and they went down a treat with everyone! They are []
