Raisin Bread Cake {rosenkuchen} 4

Raisin Bread Cake {Rosenkuchen}

In my attempts to clear through my baking ingredients, before the van goes into storage, I’ve revisited a favourite swiss recipe, rosenkuchen, this week. I discovered this yeasted cake while visiting Lauterbrunnen last winter. In the original recipe the sweet, heavenly soft bread was filled...

French Chocolate Cake | Vagabond Baking 19

French Chocolate Cake

Here’s a perfect cake to slot into your repertoire, or print it out, fold it and slip it between the pages of one of your favourite recipe books, or is that just something I do? Why, you may ask? Well, apart from the fact that...

Blueberry Crumble Slices

Who loves the crumble on a crumble more than the fruit underneath? Well these are the slices for you! Buttery crumb with a juicy layer of blueberry, dished up warm with a dollop of crème fraîche, delish! Very easy to make too, and any slices you have...

Queen of Puddings

I have a vintage and very British pudding for you today! It’s a great recipe to use up stale bread and will certainly solicit curiosity in your friends. I learnt how to make it as a child, my mum was a rather pudding orientated person and...

Nutella Faux Brioche Buns 2

Nutella Swirl Faux Brioche Buns

Watching my nephew spread Nutella over his store-bought chocolate chip brioche roll gave me a thunderbolt of inspiration. Imagine an enriched, buttery dough bun, studded with chocolate chips with a spiral core of sweet Nutella that you can slowly unroll and devour layer by layer....

Banana, Peanut Butter and Chunky Chocolate Muffins

 An absolutely delicious muffin for you this week! It is a bit of a cheaty post because I’m out in a beautiful pip of France at a wedding, having a wonderful time without any time to bake, other than myself in the glorious sunshine of...

Spiced Rice Pudding with Roasted Rhubarb

Ah rice pudding. Creamy and nurturing, it fills your heart with comforting warmth. I had roasted some rhubarb to top the individual pavlovas and had plenty to spare, it soon dawned on me that it would go rather marvellously with some rice pudding. I’ve been...

Gooseberry Meringue Roulade-7673 0

Gooseberry Meringue Roulade

Gooseberries in a colander, now that’s summer. A yearly ritual of childhood when we were sent down the garden to the veg patch to pick the goosegogs. We’d wander back up the path with colanders heavy with fruity jewels and our forearms scratched and scraped from the...

Battambang | Cambodia-2311 2

A tuk-tuk tour around the Battambang countryside

There’s more to visiting Battambang than the Bamboo Train and the colonial architecture, hire a tuk-tuk or rent a motorbike and go exploring! We opted for a tuk-tuk and hired it out for the day, our first port of call being the aforementioned bamboo train,...

Neapolitan Ice Cream Cupcakes 2

Neapolitan Ice Cream Cupcakes

This is a super old post from February 2012. It somehow didn’t make it across the migration from the old blog to this so I’ve simply cut and pasted it onto a fresh post.  I spend far too much time on Pinterest. It has absorbed...

Lucious Rhubarb Pavlovas -7362 8

Individual Rhubarb Pavlovas

Clouds of meringue topped with velvety fresh cream and roasted rhubarb freshly harvested from the garden, these individual rhubarb pavlovas are luscious and summery. We timed our return to the UK perfectly, the weather has been wonderful these last couple of weeks, of which much...
