American Pancake Recipe

My second pancake recipe for Pancake Tuesday or again you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday is my one for American Pancakes; the thicker fluffy kind.  Equally as quick and easy to make and equally as tasty.  I suppose it’s just your preference to what kind of pancake you prefer, or maybe it’s the time you eat them.  I like to have my AmericanContinue reading “American Pancake Recipe”

Crepe Recipe

With Tuesday being Pancake Tuesday or you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday I thought I’d share with you one of my full-proof recipes for crepes.  Well I lie, this is my mum’s recipe that she passed on to me (could originally be a Delia Smith one).  Mum always made these for us growingContinue reading “Crepe Recipe”

Fancy going for the handmade or homemade touch this Valentine’s Day? How about some easy shortbread treats?

RECIPE: Chocolate Avocado Cake

This is a recipe I found on BBC Good Food it was actually a vegan recipe, but I chose it more for the fact I had an avocado I wanted to use up and just switched the recipe to what I had in the house, which was not dairy free/vegan ingredients.  For the buttercream icing I justContinue reading “RECIPE: Chocolate Avocado Cake”

RECIPE: Chocolate Bark

Definitely one of my quickest and easiest Halloween baking recipes and absolutely perfect for the kids.  The only real adult involvement is the melting of chocolate, then let the kids go wild with the rest.  You can also decide on what ever chocolate or toppings you want, there is no right or wrong, but IContinue reading “RECIPE: Chocolate Bark”
