Redcurrant Jam Sandwich Cookies

Are you feeling Christmassy yet? We lit the second candle on our Advent wreath yesterday, and also baked our second round of Christmas cookies. Whilst Vanilla Kipferl, Cinnamon Stars and Butter Cookies remain our favourites (they’re like the Holy Trinity of German Christmas cookies in our house), there’s always room for more cookies and these […] Read more…

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…

Sweet Treat: Peach-Quark Casserole (GF)

It’s Father’s Day this weekend, so I thought I would share a sweet treat recipe with you, perfect for either afternoon tea or as a dessert for dinner.

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.

Sugar Free Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Just one more sleep until Pancake Day! It’s a day we look forward to every year – not that we need an excuse to eat pancakes, haha. And despite the association many have, of pancakes being a sweet indulgence, it’s easy to make pancakes that use healthy ingredients without compromising on taste. These yummy sweet potato […] Read more…

Celeriac & Potato Soup

We are great soup aficionados in our house. Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, and Parsnip & Apple Soup are all family favourites, and for a special treat my German Cheese & Mince Soup hits just the right spot. But I wanted to try something new for a change, and had heard great things about celeriac soup. I wasn’t […] Read more…

Christmas Cookies: Vanillekipferl

When it comes to Advent and Christmas baking, there is a holy trinity of seasonal cookies that always get baked in Germany, at least in my circles: Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars), Butterkekse (butter cookies), and Vanillekipferl (vanilla crescents). I shared my recipes for Zimtsterne and Butterkekse with you last year, so this time it’s time to […] Read more…
