This is a very large, very extra, super delicious and super full of pride cake. Yes it's massive and takes a bloody long time to make, but the result was so worth it. I made it for my sister's 17th birthday and she loved it. The pictures are a bit crap (what's new to be honest)… Continue reading Giant Rainbow Layer Cake!!
Unfortunately (?), there's no actual alcohol in these. Although - I'm sure replacing the flavouring with real rum would work also. Super easy recipe with stellar results; these are soft cookies with a caramel vibe because of the brown sugar. Enjoy!

Highly recommend serving it warm with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, good comfort food indeed. Thank you to my chum Kieran for requesting it. INGREDIENTS 225g self raising flour 75g caster sugar 75g brown… Continue reading Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
Is this the best vegan dessert I've ever made? The answer is: most likely. I had to make this a couple times due to a slight pastry disaster first time - turns out baking paper is pretty important when blind baking (can confirm uncooked rice baked into pastry is not a good combo). The first… Continue reading Cherry Bakewell Tart
