Today is World Baking Day and so I had to share a cake recipe with you! I made this caramel cake for my Mum’s birthday last month, and the recipe originally comes from the Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook (it’s a recipe by Nelly Ritchie who is in the Newcastle CCC – yay!). It was the first time I had made it but it was super easy – I just went a bit mad with the milk in the buttercream and it ended up being a little too runny as you can see! But it tasted amazing so nobody was too bothered 🙂 Read More
One night last week, we had a few ingredients that needed using up – so I googled ‘chicken and mascarpone recipe’ and found this one for chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and marsala sauce. We adapted it from the original recipe (click here to see that) so that it was just enough for two. We didn’t quite have all the original ingredients either, but our adapted version was really delicious! And it hardly took any time at all, so I’m sure we’ll be making this on a weeknight again soon.

It’s a lovely Bank Holiday weekend this weekend, which calls for cake! This lovely raspberry and blueberry lime drizzle cake is really fruity, and the combination works really well. Make it in a small square tin and it will be perfect for a picnic. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed for good weather! Read More
Mississippi mud pie is a traditional American pudding and it is a real treat – definitely one for a special occasion! We made a smaller one for our day-after-Valentine’s meal that used just half of the amounts given here, which served 4 (so more for dessert tonight – yay!). This is another recipe from Gordon Ramsay’s ‘World Kitchen’.
