Do I ever need to bake anything again? LOOK AT IT! This was a remake of the technical challenge on this week's bake-off, and I think I smashed it. The inside is lotus biscuit spread, and the cake is a rich sticky chocolate. The outside is a bit gross looking because I lined the ramekins… Continue reading Molten Chocolate Lotus Puddings!!
This, was not easy. Week 4 of The Great British Bake Off showed the contestants attempting caramel, therefore I also had to try and attempt caramel. It took a few attempts, and admittedly the texture of the firm caramel is a bit odd, yet not un-pleasant. If you skip the vege-gel then the caramel is… Continue reading Millionaire Shortbread
In classic Lauren style - they're not very pretty. BUT they taste flippin' good so that's all that matters as far as I'm concerned. These are the answer to WEEK TWO Great British (Vegan) Bake Off challenge - the sandwich biscuits.

Just trying to show that it's super easy to make 'normal' food without the death etc. These cupcakes are a remake of… Continue reading Pina Colada Cupcakes

MAKES 25 COOKIES INGREDIENTS: 3 1/4 cups plain flour 2 tsps baking powder 1… Continue reading Rum and Raisin Cookies
The taste and texture of these are super good - just like proper shortbread if you will. I made mine way too thin so definitely roll your dough about 1cm thick instead of the thin biscuits I made. The reason mine are a darker colour than traditional shortbread is because of the coconut sugar… Continue reading Vanilla / Rose Shortbread
