Caramel Muffins

When I last visited the supermarket (how is it that a simple trip to the supermarket is now the most exciting part of the week), I spied a sign for a delicious looking caramel muffin in the coffee shop window. Now a caramel muffin sounds like a great idea, why haven’t i thought of that…

Biscoff Caramel Crispy Bites

Wow, this summer has been such a proper heatwave it’s be a struggle to do much baking. You’ll have noticed a distinct lack of new recipes in recent weeks; somehow even turning the oven on is the last thing I want to do when the temperature is in the 30s. Don’t worry though, there are…

Caramel Sauce

You don’t get to eat much caramel if you’re on a dairy-free diet. That’s a shame, as caramel has always been a favourite of mine (mmm, Cadbury’s Caramel!) and has a lot of sweet uses. Also, Big S really doesn’t like bananas so I though a banoffee concoction might appeal to her sweet tooth. As…
