Mince Pie Crumble

So Halloween is over which only means one thing here in the UK… CHRISTMAS IS NEXT! Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year, and I start prepping in November well in advance because I’m a little sad and I get way too into it. By the time this month is up I will have Continue reading

A twist on the cinnamon roll: Kanelbullar

I don’t bake bread often. It’s such a faff, you need the yeast and the strong flour which I never ever seem to finish before their expiry dates. Plus, you have to wait hours to prove and knock back the dough when usually my baking is a spontaneous spur of the moment thing because I’m craving a cookie or a cupcake that I can have whipped up in the space of an hour. But as my parents were out of town, my house is eerily empty and I had a little free time on my hands on a Sunday afternoon, I decided to make some of my favourite Swedish¬†treats, usually saved for Continue reading

A Broke Girl’s Millionaire’s Shortbread Cups

Catching July on the cusp, here I am. I’m currently working with a lot of cookbooks and so I thought I would try to get back into baking (I haven’t really baked since the last post on here, would you believe?) and bake an actual recipe without playing with it too much? I still added cinnamon to cut through the caramel layer, but I followed Nadiya’s recipe to a tee from her new book otherwise. Looking forward to Continue reading

The ‘you can never have too much caramel’ Birthday Cake

Baking is pretty much impossible without a working oven, who’d have thought? So when my landlord finally come around to replace the oven with a shiny new one (THAT ACTUALLY WORKS AND DOESN’T BURN EVERYTHING ON THE BOTTOM) I leapt at the chance to do a ‘test run’. As its mine and a few friends birthday events coming up, I started with Continue reading

*Filipino inspired* Ube Yam Cheesecake

Hello. How is it already February? My last post in January seems like it was eons ago. After a mini hiatus after a lot of Christmas baking, I’m back with a new kinda flavour that I’ve only had a handful of times, mostly in Korea. It’s a hard flavour to find, but thankfully Continue reading

Matcha Frangipane Toronto Tart

So I’ve been doing a few throwbacks recently, and Canada has really been on my mind. I didn’t take enough photos of the place, but that’s because both my trips there I spent LIVING the moment, rather than photographing it. And, strange as it might be, this tart throws me back to my weekend in Toronto, which was filled with Continue reading
