Cardamom Wreath with Rose Drizzle and Candied Lemon Peel

Cardamom Wreath with Rose Drizzle and Candied Lemon Peel

I’ve been craving cinnamon rolls all week. Soft, buttery bread with crispy edges, heaps of spice and the best part – lashings of sweet icing. Whenever I make Lotte Duncan’s version with maple icing, they fill the house with the most mouth-watering scent of fresh bread.   In fact, I love Lotte’s buttery cinnamon roll...
Eggless Rose Custard Creams

Eggless Rose Custard Creams

I remember the days my brother and I would raid the biscuit selection box, grabbing our favourites before the other one could get their paws on them. In our house, it was always the jammy dodgers, bourbons and custard creams that went first. I first spotted this recipe on The Boy Who Bakes, Edd Kimber’s...

Eggless Turkish Delight Lamingtons

This time last year I won the Re-Inventing the Lamington competition hosted by Mr P of the thoroughly delicious Delicious Delicious Delicious. Not bragging or anything. My Shrikhand Spice Lamingtons consisted of a traditional Shrikhand sandwiched between eggless honey-flavoured sponge, coated in milk chocolate and pistachio splinters. There were some amazing entries and it was...
Rose & Pistachio Baklava

Rose & Pistachio Baklava

Fresh baklava has to be one of the most famous sweets across the globe. Throughout the Middle East and across Mediterranean lands it is king. Boy, do those people have good taste. Nutty, chewy and ultimately calorific, baklava sticks to your teeth and your thighs. My philosophy is to enjoy devilishly sweet treats in moderation...
Rose, Milk and Honey Agar-Agar

Rose, Milk and Honey Agar-Agar

Enjoying the beautiful sights, smells and sounds Spring-time brings? I’ve been admiring the swift emergence of cherry blossoms, marigolds and daffodils scattered about everywhere I look. I’ve been detecting the scent of invigorating freshly cut grass through the gentle breeze, and waking up to birdsongs. Okay, I admit that the birdsongs can get really annoying...
