Raisin Bread Cake {Rosenkuchen}

Cinder Toffee Cupcakes

How angelic do these buns look! I haven’t baked cupcakes for ages and I had a real hankering to make some over the last few days. We are in our final week of a four-week house sit in rural Lancashire, counting down to our winter...

Lincolnshire Plum Bread | Vagabond Baking

Lincolnshire Plum Bread {my version of}

One of the pleasures of travel is discovering local foods that aren’t necessarily well-known outside of the area. More often than not, savoury dishes are meat based so I miss out on those, but many places have regional breads, cakes and baked goods too. When...

Lemon and Poppy Seed Madeleines

Lemon and Poppy Seed Madeleines

These glossy little morsels are sharp and zesty with lemon and have a little crunch from the poppy seeds, they look so pretty and dainty. They still have that wonderful butteriness of regular madeleines, I just can’t get enough of it! As with my other...

Malham Show

Baking {out of my comfort zone} at Malham Show

Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Scones | Vagabond Baking

Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Scones

I was so pleased with my cheese and onion scones I really wanted to make a vegan scone that would match it for flavour. I considered using vegan cheese but I don’t really have enough knowledge of them so I pondered alternatives. I came up...

Elderflower Cordial | Vagabond Baking

Summer in a Bottle, Elderflower Cordial

The refreshing taste of elderflower syrup is the liquid embodiment of summer. It is the perfect non-alcoholic thirst quencher for long summer evenings, for picnics and outdoor entertaining. Not that it can’t be served alcoholic, make a delightful white wine spritzer with it for some...

Strawberries and Cream Meringue Cake

    It’s strawberry season! That only means one thing, summer! Glastonbury weekend {pah, not for me this year *wallows in self-pity*}, Wimbledon is dominating the tv channels {am I the only person who finds tennis a terrific bore?} and the supermarkets are stacked to...

Coconut Crusted Meringues | Vagabond Baking

Coconut Crusted Meringues

An endless supply of free-range eggs and an Aga oven meant that meringues were definitely a pudding last week. I had been inspired to make big meringues after seeing some on a food stall while walking along Brick Lane in London. We rushed up the...

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...
