Ok so I’m not the first food blogger to make a Maltesers Cheesecake but this one is special I promise! There are no Maltesers in the cheesecake itself, instead there’s rich dark chocolate and a delicious malty hit courtesy of some Malted Milk drink powder (think Horlicks, Ovaltine or as we used Asda own brand instant malt milk drinks powder, just rolls of the tounge … Continue reading Malteser Cheesecake
Not to brag but I’m pretty sure I could make it into the Guinness book of records for amount of baking done on little/no sleep. My kids are notoriously poor sleepers; they torture me all night and think they can act cute in daylight hours to make up for it. Whereas I try not to complain (not really I complain constantly) nothing takes the edge … Continue reading Baked Churros

I asked her at soft play, “who’s your best friend?” She said, “…ummm probably that girl I … Continue reading Roots & Fruit Cakes
I find it so strange how a set of eyes can bring anything to life. An egg custard may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you want to bake with kids but they are delicious and if you decide to minion-ise them the kids will love you for it. If you’re new to the cooking with kids lark I’d describe this … Continue reading Egg Custard Tarts
Now you may be wondering what Sgorio is. An exciting Italian delicacy perhaps or some sort of Russian liquor? Well no Sgorio (pronounced scOreo) is Welsh for GOAL!!! Which is a word my English husband is hoping to be shouting at the telly at least a few times over the next few weeks. Yes the World Cup is very much here. I’m not a football … Continue reading Sgorio Cookies!
