Crunchy top Banana Muffin with Nuts and Oats- What’s in a Name?

  Muffin, cake , bread….for a long time I have looked at these 3 and wondered which one applies to my current bake. I hate the thought of calling it bread, cake…hmmm, no. So muffin it is !! Sounds healthy, filling, un-sinful and perfect for this banana recipe. This confusion and absolute naming block with regards…

BROWNIES (and a little nostalgia)

  I have been meaning to post these recipes since a long, long time….but life gets in the way of blogging and the old laptop plays up like your stubborn teen and the Y key needs to be stabbed atleast 5 times before it works…… in the interim moments of inspiration come and vanish and before I know it,…

Now…

A challenge to pronounce- Kwee-Ahmaan and a bigger challenge to control yourself from polishing it off in one go. Imagine the very French croissant’s coupling with buttery puff pastry and…

MINI QUICHE (Spinach and Corn)

My lunch girls, have been clamouring for an afternoon out for ages.

STRIPED CHEESECAKE

A black and white beauty, smooth, silky and a treat to not only eat, but make too!

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE
