Sweet Carrot Cake Roulade
Stand out from the crowd with this classic American bake with a twist. Elle has combined delicious carrot cake and scrumptious Swiss roll to bring you the carrot cake roulade, a sweet and light treat to brighten your day!
The Perfect Plum Tray Bake
There's plenty of UK grown produce lining the hedgerows at this time of year, perfect for embracing simpler bakes that showcase the best of our home-grown produce. Whether you decide to pick your own or grab some fruit from the market, here's a lovely recipe to celebrate autumn's bounty. We've gone for plum, but you can modify the recipe to include your favourite Autumnal fruit!
Scrumptious Salted Caramel and Pretzel Millionaires Shortbread
Sweet caramel, salty pretzels and bittersweet chocolate. Probably 3 of or most favourite flavours combined. This is a twist on millionaire’s shortbread and a lovely treat originally created for Father’s Day but perfect for a quiet autumn afternoon with a cup of tea!
Seasonal Cinnamon and Pumpkin Rolls
There's no avoiding pumpkins at this time of year, so for this month's baking feature we've opted for an enriched dough with a seasonal addition of pumpkin, and a healthy amount of spice. Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread and this recipe ticks all the boxes for warm and cosy baking.
Indulgent Hot Chocolate and S’more Cookies
The lead up to the festive season can be hectic. From decorating the tree, wrapping presents to braving the bustle of the high street for a spot of Christmas shopping. It's a busy time, and you probably deserve a treat. This cosy recipe combo makes for the perfect snack to accompany all festive faffing, and a very good excuse to treat yourself!
Melty Marshmallow S’mores Cupcakes
Speaking of S’mores, have you seen our S’mores Cupcakes? These are truly the perfect autumnal treat, especially for bonfire parties or just as a Christmas treat!
Marvellous Bakewell Mince Pies
Mince pies abound in all shapes and sizes at this time of year and it never truly feels like Christmas until the first mince pie of the season has been consumed. We take mince pie tasting very seriously and are always on the lookout for new exciting flavours to try. So, for a cheeky twist on tradition, we've paired ours with a light and fluffy frangipane topping to get the party season in full swing.
Festive French Toast with Blueberry Sauce
French toast is quite possibly the ultimate luxury breakfast and the perfect treat for celebrating the festive season. We love a cosy warm breakfast to fuel our seasonal crafting and what is better than French toast with a light dusting of powdered sugar?!
