Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Pumpkin spice is everywhere these days, everyone seems to go crazy for pumpkin spice lattes so I thought I’d better jump on the PSL bandwagon and use pumpkin spice in one of my recipes. Initially i thought the spice would be pumpkin based, and i’m just not a fan of any kind of gourd, but…

Blueberry muffins

I do have a fondness for blueberry muffins, they’re a great excuse to eat cake for breakfast, or anytime for that matter! Are blueberry muffins a little out of favour these days? They don’t seem to be on my radar anymore… maybe it’s because you don’t come across them often, or maybe it’s because I…

Victoria Sponge Cake Jars

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I’m delighted that the Great British Bake Off is back on – not only is it light and frothy viewing (just what we need these days) but it also gives lots of new inspiration for bakes, as well as the pressure to keep up. I’ve got into a phase of having masses of recipes but…
