Having a bank of easy, quick biscuit recipes saves my bacon on so many occasions. I’ve talked endlessly about wanting the kids to eat less pre-produced food and snacks are one of our worst offenders. Last week was crazily busy (in a good way) but our eating habits did suffer. I declared on Sunday night that this week was a homely, eat-better week (The kids interpreted this as ‘Fruit & Vegetable week but that’s a battle for another time)
Melting moments are definitely a throwback to my youth – Every time I make them, I forget how easy they are and how scrumptious. Mr C still marvels at them going into the oven as balls and coming out as flats.
Huge thank you to everyone who is joining our Bake of the Week community – There are some amazing bakers out there. My ‘to be baked’ list is growing every bigger!
I want to pick out just a few of the entries this week but the large picture below shows you all the entries with a link to their bakes below:
I love love love the neatness of the Chocolate Cheesecake all the way from Lucia in Italy. Mr C has requested a chocolate bake for Father’s Day this weekend, reminding me that I don’t cook with chocolate nearly enough.
I’m a sucker for Toffee flavours – I can’t get over how much I want to make this Toffee Apple Fudge from Jenny at Mummy Mishaps – Would you just look at how light and airy that cake is?!
New Bakers are often asking me what recipe they should have in their repertoire – They don’t come much better or traditional than this Victoria Sponge from Camilla at Fab Food for All. Start with the basics and then start to experiment is my advice every time!
1. Chocolate Cheesecake – Lucia from Tortadirose
2. Bahlsen Baking Challenge from Jenny at The Brick Castle
3. Toffee Apple Fudge Cake from Jenny at Mummy Mmishaps
4. Victoria Sponge from Camilla at Fab Food For All
