Nutella Bagels

Happy World Nutella Day! No real reason for this day other than an American blogger called Sara Rosso in 2007 who loved Nutella so much she thought it deserved a holiday and we do too! For this day, I wanted to make something a little different that was maybe more challenging than just Nutella brownies or cupcakes. It was then when I went downstairs to make breakfast when I realised I had no bagels left to eat that the idea came to mind.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s vegan week this week of the Bake Off and what an inspiring week! I am not personally vegan myself, but have always been fascinated at vegan food, with the substitutes for animal products including meat and dairy! This weeks episode showed me something i’ve never seen before and that’s using aquafaba in replacement of eggs. This was used for making fluffy meringue which made me wonder, can it be replaced in any recipe? And hello chocolate chip cookies!

Cakes

Marble Cake

Marble cake is my favourite! And especially good when you love both chocolate and vanilla cakes and you find it difficult to choose which one to have!! This cake is very simple, with no real icing on top just a drizzle of both white and milk chocolate. You can cut this cake in half and fill/cover with a chocolate buttercream if you like, like this recipe by Sallysbakingaddiction!

Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow Cupcakes

Happy St. Patricks Day! A day I personally do not celebrate, but always seem to end up in a pub (that’s normal, right?). This year though I opted for a less alcoholic way to celebrate by creating some St. Paddy’s Day chocolate cupcakes!

Sugar

Vanilla Marshmallows

Hi again! Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Yesterday I decided to make marshmallows. They came out super fluffy and tasty, so much better than shop bought!

If anyone knows me, they will know the amount of disasters that have occurred for me in the kitchen sometimes, marshmallows being one of those times… so I was pretty nervous about making them. The last time I tried I didn’t have a sugar thermometer or an electric mix which is the fist big red flag of ‘DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.’
