It's a scorcher this week in the UK so if you're doing any baking you want it to be quick, fresh and zero hassle. This is a super simple recipe I tweaked for a  friend who can't eat Gluten, Dairy or Soy, and I absolutely stand by the fact the cake doesn't feel like it'...

#LGBTSTEMday is occurring for the second time this Friday 5th July, and its purpose is to raise the profile and celebrate LGBT people working in STEM fields. I teamed up with Yan (who you might not know works at The Crick as a biologist) to create a recipe to celebrate...

I'll keep it short and sweet this month...I'm not even going to talk about my monthly blog target. All I will say is I hope by year end to have averaged out at the right level... SORRY. 

In the UK we're in peak rhubarb season. I have a bit of a rhubarb problem, not help...

So, let's just say the blog took a back seat for the last *ahem* 10 months of 2018. I send my sincerest apologies for going blog-AWOL, it was a busy time (check out the media page for some highlights), particularly with my bakineering shows. 2018 was great, loads of ch...

Where did January go?? Hard to believe we're so far away from Christmas already but time really has flown by.

The start of the year has been full of catch-ups with family and friends. After over a year of waiting, I got to see Hamilton the musical in London with Bake Of...

How is it November already? The weeks seem to rush in at this time of year. As night falls ever earlier and the crisp air takes hold, my oven is still as active as ever, the hot heart of our home. Today I've got a corker of a recipe for you: my take on a retro Baked Al...

If you live in the British Isles, the last few weeks have seen some fairly stormy and drizzly weather making its presence felt. Temperatures plummeting, jumpers thickening and a call for some cosy food with a good dose of indulgence.

I got sent a gorgeous new Bundt tin...

Autumn has arrived as a chilly blast here in the UK. I've seen glimpses of amber foliage, the jumper collection has been dusted off and so starts the season of cosy comfort baking. But before we totally surrender our summery flavours, I'm sharing my recipe for a zesty...
