Banana & Roasted Walnut Cookies

This week I’ve had my littles munchkin at home, sick with bronchitis – again. I thought we’d seen the last of that! Anyway, he’s been feeling pretty miserable, and not had much of an appetite, so I’ve been trying to cheer him up by tempting him with some treats. Such as these delicious cookies! When […] Read more…

Orange & Almond Cake (GF)

What better excuse than National Almond Day (yes, it’s a thing!) to share one of my favourite recipes with you! Almonds are great for gluten free baking, because recipe with ground almonds often don’t require flour as sell, eliminating the need for cumbersome substituting. This cake is a particular favourite, because it’s lovely and moist […] Read more…

Chocolate Almond Torte

There’s no Friday 5 post this week, because it’s National Chocolate Day – yes, there seems to be a national holiday for just about everything these days! – and what better excuse to share my recipe for chocolate almond torte with you. A nice slab of this is just what’s needed to chase away the […] Read more…

Sunday Sweet: Banana Oat Waffles (GF)

So, at the end of last year I bought a Belgian waffle iron on a whim. It was on sale at our local supermarket. We already own a German waffle iron, which makes delicate heart shaped waffles, but there is just something about big, chunky Belgian waffles. And really, you can never own too many […] Read more…

Christmas Cookies: Cinnamon Stars (GF)

Only ten days to go until Christmas! Plenty of time left to bake some more Christmas cookies, and there’s another German Christmas cookie staple that I have to share with you. Because Christmas simply wouldn’t be the same without them – much like mince pies in the UK. ‘Zimtsterne’, or ‘Cinnamon Stars’ for all the […] Read more…

Butter Cookies (GF)

It’s the Second of Advent already, how time flies! We’re off on a festive Advent steam train ride today, through wintery Berlin-Brandenburg. There are rumours St Nicholas will drop by too! When we come back, we’ll probably have afternoon tea and cookies to warm us up, before trimming our tree. We’ve been busy baking home […] Read more…

Apple & Almond Oat Cookies (GF)

When temperatures plummet and those crisp Autumn days really start kicking in, there’s nothing better to come home after a walk in the park than some yummy home baked cookies. We made these apple and almond cookies last weekend and the whole family loved them – they didn’t last long! Ingredients 100g dried apples 150ml […] Read more…

Cheddar & Poppy Seed Biscuits

Last week, I felt a bit like a domestic goddess, when I picked up my kids from nursery and school and we went home to bake Autumn biscuits with the dough I had prepared earlier in the day, to herald the beginning of a new season. When it came round to dinner time and I served […] Read more…

Lemon Confetti Cake

Any excuse for a cake, and nothing screams summer like a refreshing lemon cake. Well, I think so anyway. With some butter cream icing and confetti sprinkles on top for extra decadence. Of course. Ingredients for the cake: 250g butter or margarine 150g sugar 4 eggs 250g gluten free flour (I usually use Schär or […] Read more…
