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 Doughnut Holes

This was my final Veganuary recipe I made and I can honestly say it was also the BEST! I have made many vegan savoury dishes but haven’t really focused to heavily on sweet vegan recipes. I have tried vegan waffles and cookies which came out delicious but I still wasn’t convinced that those vegan desserts were BETTER than non-vegan ones until I tried these doughnuts. These doughnuts are honestly better than normal doughnut holes I’ve made before. They may not be as fluffy but they are super crispy on the outside, the taste is amazing and they are perfect to dip in all sorts of dips and I would choose to make these not as a “replacement” for normal doughnuts, but because this recipe is just delicious but also happens to be vegan at the same time!

Lemon Macarons with Swiss Meringue Buttercream

After finally mastering the macaron after plenty (and i mean PLENTY) of tries and fails, I have FINALLY been able to actually test new flavours and fillings. After making my Passionfruit Macarons which turned out so delicious, I wanted to make another flavour which was just as tasty.

Thats where these babies come in. When I first thought of doing a lemon macaron, I wanted to have a lemon macaron shell and a lemon filling. One of the most difficult things to make is a macaron shell and when I started adding lemon zest to them, they came out all bumpy and liquid flavourings would make the mixture runny. I decided that the macaron shell itself needed to be a normal macaron shell, coloured yellow and then the filling is what will pack a punch of flavour.

Passion Fruit Macarons

If you follow me on social media you will know that I posted these at the beginning of Spring, around Easter time. There’s something about the sun coming out for the first few days since winter that makes me want to make something light and special!

These macarons are one of the easiest recipes out there, which for macarons is usually difficult to find! Filled with a tangy passionfruit curd, these are perfect for spring/summer BBQ’s or a gift for a loved one and is the perfect base recipe for you to add different flavourings and colours so get creative!

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!

Banana Loaf with Toffee Sauce

IMG_9106

The best way to use up bruised and old bananas is in a loaf cake! Never throw away older looking bananas again, as they give the best flavour for this recipe!

Covered in toffee sauce, this banoffee type loaf is so scrumptious perfect for all the family. I have also created my first ever baking video, so check it out! It’s not the best but I can’t wait to learn and imprive as I think videos make the steps come to life and the recipe is just easier if you can watch someone making it!
