Vegan Lime and Blueberry Loaf

This sweet little lime and blueberry loaf is Vegan. And has no added fat. It shouldn’t work, but it does and it’s fluffy, soft and “”citrusingly” delicious! My children and husband could not believe it when I told them how very few ingredients went into this batter and they particularly loved the zingy lime flavour…

Raspberry Jam Mini Meringues

This is not the first time I share a meringue recipe, nor it will be the last. I simply adore whipping these ineffably light and perfectly crunchy nuggets, and I find that they are so versatile they can be paired with most ingredients. Think chocolate, coffee powder, matcha, flaked almonds, pomegranate, or, in this case…

Lemon and White Chocolate Christmas Cookies

These eggless, soft (thank you, baking powder!) shortbread cookies are the perfect morsel to get you in the Christmas spirit! I like to scent mine with lemon and vanilla, and drizzle over generous lashings of melted white chocolate, for that extra opulence this season commands, However you can customize this recipe to your liking and…

Vegan “Rudolph” Cupcakes

With Christmas fast approaching I feel I have burrowed myself deep in a rabbit hole of baking! Not that I mind that, let’s be clear here, baking is my happy place. And my actual domestic bunny Hazel loves to steal the fruits of my labour! There goes that metaphor! If you are planning some seasonal…

Nothing fills me with more joy than sharing my love for baking with my children. It’s both the ritual of creating an edible moment together, and the anticipation and excitement waiting for our labour to come into fruition. I am not a very patient baker, let’s be honest, and, with the exception of slow proving…

Easy-ish, almost no-knead Panettone

Almost. Yes, there will be some kneading, but take it from someone who is known for Panettone recipes that will give your upper body an intense workout, this is quite the revolution! Panettone is a traditional Italian Christmas enriched bread, and creating this type of dough, negotiating with eggs, sugar and fats, is never an…

Bussolai, S-shaped Venetian Biscuit

Italian cuisine is well known for its intriguing diversity. With such substantial regional differences, it is easy to encounter a type of recipe that is only ever made in a particular town or village. Bussolai (also known as Bussolari) is one such recipe, typical of Burano, near Venice. You can find them shaped into rings…

Blood Orange and Buttermilk Ciambella

I have never kept my dislike for winter a secret. I don’t do well in the colder months. It appears that my birthday, at the height of Italian summer (July 23! Yes, LEO!) has really built a need for sunlight and warm weather in the very structure of my DNA. So, in the colder months,…
