Sticky Gingerbread Cupcakes

These delicious sticky gingerbread cupcakes are made with ground ginger, chopped stem ginger and brushed with ginger syrup so they're packed full of flavour and perfectly moist. The ideal treat for any gingerbread lovers.

When I was little I remember we almost always had a roast dinner for Sunday lunch and then a little buffet of sandwiches and cake for tea in the evening. One of my favourite cakes at teatime was Jamaican Ginger Cake. I decided it was about time I made my own version of this delicious cake to share with you.

These sticky gingerbread cupcakes get their gingeriness three ways to make sure they’re packed full of flavour…

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

vegan vanilla cupcakes-2

One question I get asked quite a lot is whether I have a good egg-free cake recipe on here.

I’ve made dairy-free cakes in the past but egg-free has always eluded me. Eggs are just such a huge part of cake baking!

I decided it was time I finally knuckled down and figured out how to make a delicious egg-free vanilla cake and I figured that seeing as getting rid of the eggs from the recipe is trickier than dropping the dairy I might as well remove that too and make these cakes fully vegan…

I’ve got just the recipe to get you all through the cold weather we’ve got at the moment… The Ultimate Healthy Hot Chocolate! Whilst I’ve love to take the credit for coming up with this delicious hot chocolate recipe, sadly I can’t. It’s a guest recipe from Amy at Amy Savage Nutrition.

Easy Chocolate Brownies (That Taste Amazing!)

Homemade chocolate brownies cut into squares and arranged in rows. You can see the crisp, shiny top and gooey centre.

I’ve recently been looking back through my recipe index and I realised that there are quite a few basic baking recipes missing that really should be there. To rectify this I’ve decided to go on a bit of a mission to fill the gaps.

Today’s recipe is a classic chocolate brownie recipe which is easy to make. It gives you delicious brownies that are crisp on top and gooey on the inside. They’re a family favourite and Daniel (my 7 year old) told me if they sold these in coffee shops then it would be all he’d ever order…

Coconut Buttercream

As promised, I’m back with my recipe for coconut buttercream to top the coconut cupcakes I shared last week.

As with the cupcakes, the key to getting lots of coconut flavour into this buttercream is using creamed coconut block from the asian food aisle. It also means that your buttercream is lovely and smooth so it’s perfect for piping…

Mediterranean Lamb Stuffed Tomatoes

Three Mediterranean Lamb Stuffed Tomatoes on a serving board.

Sponsored by Tasty Easy Lamb.

I’m back with another recipe as part of my collaboration with Tasty Easy Lamb – Mediterranean Lamb Stuffed Tomatoes.

I wanted to create a recipe perfect for anyone that’s sticking to their healthy eating resolutions but is in need of something a little different to keep on track. These stuffed tomatoes are filled with a delicious lamb mince, packed with Mediterranean flavours including olives, lemon and oregano. I’ve also drifted into the Middle East and used a little sumac as it’s a flavour I absolutely love. However, don’t worry if it’s not something you have in your spice drawer (or wherever you keep your spices) as this recipe is still delicious without it.
