My dad LOVES gooseberries – he reckons they’re his favourite fruit – so when Amanda (the wonderful lady I work with who delivers fresh goodies from her allotment to my desk) handed me a huge bag of home-grown gooseberries, I knew exactly what I was going to do with them: make a cake of course!…

Carrot cupcakes with orange mascarpone icing

As many of you know, I gave up chocolate for lent. It’s going well so far and I haven’t touched the stuff for 3 weeks which is pretty good going for me, considering it’s one of my favourite ingredients on the planet! But it has left me at a loss of what to eat for…

Yoghurt, honey and orange tart

I’ve been dreaming of cake recently, as I often do, so I whipped up this super scrummy banana bread to curb the craving. The honey and bananas act as natural sweeteners, making this loaf refined sugar free, while the walnuts add a lovely crunch and a good little hit of protein. The end result is…

Chocolate chip peanut butter cookies

These cookies are one of my favourite things to make. I love peanut butter, I love chocolate  and the swirl of coconut cream ganache in the centre takes these cookies to a whole new level. They are chewy and gooey and deliciously decadent and it’s impossible to just eat one. Invite your friends over for…

Probably the best chocolate cake ever!

I absolutely LOVE chocolate. Ever since I can remember, the deliciously rich, melt-in-your-mouth sweet treat has been my number one favourite and I will always choose the chocolate option for dessert at a restaurant. In fact, I love the stuff so much that when my uncle set up my very first email account when I…
