Salted Caramel Tart (GF)

So, usually I make pumpkin pie for our Hallowe’en party every year, but after seeing a great cake decor idea on the front cover of Tesco magazine last week, I decided to break with tradition and make a salted caramel tart instead. I used my own caramel recipe, rather than the Tesco one, because it’s […] Read more…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

A wee while ago I shared a recipe for sugar free banana bread sweetened with coconut, perfect for an ‘in between’ healthy snack and a popular bake in our house. But some days, you just want something a little more decadent, so for those afternoon tea kind of moments there’s my chocolate chip banana bread. More of […] Read more…

Rainbow Unicorn Cake

Last week was my elder son’s 7th birthday, and he had asked for a unicorn theme and cake. I found loads of unicorn cakes floating around Pinterest, when I was looking for inspiration, which were either flat topped, e.g. using a sandwich cake tin, or involved a lot of carving. Then I came across a unicorn cake on […] Read more…

Family Recipe: Mama’s Apfelkuchen

In case you’ve all been wondering what we did with the remainder of the apples we picked at Craigie’s Farm a couple of weeks ago, I have one more, magnificent apple recipe for you! Although most of the credit for this recipe goes to my mum, I’ve only adapted it a little. This cake, heaped […] Read more…

Lemon Drizzle Cake (GF)

It’s Mother’s Day in Germany – and many other countries around the world – this coming weekend, so another excuse to eat cake (like we need an excuse, lol). This juicy lemon drizzle cake is one of my favourites. And, of course, it’s gluten free too. Ingredients 250g softened butter 200g brown sugar grated zest […] 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…

Hooray for Hat! Birthday Cake Decor

Another week, another birthday. In November, birthdays are a bit like buses in our house – you wait for ages, then two come along at once! Having made such an epic cake for his big brother just over a week before, which took several hours to decorate (baking time not included), I was faced with the […] Read more…

Construction Site Birthday Cake

So, today we celebrated The Boy’s sixth birthday! It’s such a cliche to say it, but goodness how quickly they grow up! Stop the clock please. Anyway, it was a much anticipated event – he is the youngest in his class at school and the only one to start school age five, so he couldn’t […] Read more…

Chocolate Courgette Cake

Last week, The Boy and I were invited to visit the Domäne Dahlem here in Berlin – a working farm and museum to the south of the city centre. As well as a tour of their relatively new interactive exhibition all about food and its journey from nature to your table, which I will be […] 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…
