Cherry and Coconut Hot Cross Buns

While tradition states Hot Cross Buns should be eaten on Good Friday, many shops now sell these fruit studded buns all year round. I try to resist temptation and only buy/make them during the Easter period. Hot Cross Buns use one of my favourite types of dough – enriched dough. It’s silky texture is a pleasure to work …

Signature Spice Festive English Muffins

  Waitrose have a #makeschristmas campaign this year. What makes Christmas for us is baking but it has been on the back burner for the last few years. 2013 – thanks to morning sickness I wasn’t interested in food unless it was raspberries, passionfruit or babybel cheese. 2014 – juggling a 5 month year old …

Berry, Cherry & Almond Bread

Dried fruit is a bit of a Marmite; people either love or hate it. I really like it. As well as dried fruit I love the combination of cherries and almonds. There is something so sweet and succulent when the two flavours are paired which probably goes a long way to say I adore, nay …

Onion and Parmesan Knotted Loaf

This should really be called the onion and parmesan 8 strand plait loaf but given our analytical brains couldn’t process Paul Hollywood’s instructions (no pictures) to make an 8 strand plait we kept on ending up with a messy knot. Giving up we shaped it some more and bunged it in a 2lb loaf tin. …
