Chessy Vegetable  Frankfurter Bake

Chessy Vegetable Frankfurter Bake

I concocted this recipe this evening largely because I had a load of random bits in my fridge that needed using up, but I enjoyed the result so much that I feel the need to write it up for the world. Yes, the world. It was that good. Think of a cross between a potato gratin and...

Chocolate Chip Marble Cake

Chocolate Chip Marble Cake

All my exams and essays are finally over (hoorah!), so what’s the first thing I do? Bake, obvs. I’d been genuinely craving getting my bake on for so long, but hadn’t let myself as I knew I would feel far too guilty for not working. This afternoon, however, I commandeered the kitchen in a flurry...

Healthy Recipes With Minimum Effort And Maximum Flavour

“Healthy eating. If that slightly depressing phrase conjures up sad images of lettuce, strange green juices and bland brown mush then this is the article for you.These recipes all require minimum effort (like, seriously little effort) and are low in calories and fat, but are so delicious that you won’t be able to notice.

Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding

Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding

This is an absolute classic British winter pudding, and often my choice if I’m ever out for a pub lunch (which, quite frankly, isn’t that frequent an occurrence in student life). Somewhat shockingly, I’d never actually tried to make my own before a few days ago, but I am so very glad that I did....

Chocolate Orange Pudding Cupcakes

Chocolate Orange Pudding Cupcakes

Essentially, they’re chocolate orange cupcakes, and you could leave them at that at any other time of the year. But now that it’s December, why not go that little bit further? Not that many people actually like Christmas pudding (children in particular), but I think it’s highly unlikely that anyone won’t like these yummy chocolate...

Recipe Caramel Apple Cake

Recipe Caramel Apple Cake

Well now, this is a scrummy cake. The slight tartness of the apples marries perfectly with the sweetness of the caramel, and not only has the actual cake gone down a treat with my mum, sister and myself (obvs), the pictures have gone down even better with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (I’m @rachel_hosie by the way,...

Recipe Basic Banana Birthday Cake

Recipe Basic Banana Birthday Cake

I’ve been back at uni for a couple of weeks now, and am loving my oh-so-busy student life. One thing I am not loving, however, is my lack of time for baking. If you followed my blog over the summer, you probably got used to a new recipe popping up every other day or so,...

Recipe Banoffee Cake

Recipe Banoffee Cake

This is a really delicious and simple cake: a dense, moist banana cake topped with a fudgey toffee icing. Try serving it warm for a classy dinner dessert or you could leave off the icing for a less rich afternoon tea treat. I made it to celebrate my brother’s graduation, and it’s another recipe I’ve...

Easy Berry And Almond Cake

Easy Berry And Almond Cake

I have some really great girlfriends from my German course, and a lot of them are as baking-mad as moi So, the other day we decided to have a little tea party in order to gossip, moan about exams, and stuff ourselves silly with cake. What else would students be doing in their free time,...

How To Make Victoria Sponge Cakes?

How To Make Victoria Sponge Cakes?

In my opinion, Victoria Sponge is the most classic of British cakes. I mean, we love a good sponge cake, don’t we? Preferably two layers sandwiched together with something yummy. Yup, it’s a pretty British style of baking. And I love it.The strange thing is, it would seem the quintessential Victoria Sponge is less iconic...
