Its been a gorgeous day today – the sort of sunshine that makes everyone smile. You can’t help but comment in shops on how lovely the weather is – terribly British I know!
In honour of Spring doing its hardest to appear again, I’ve carried on with the Spring baking theme with my Sunshine Cookies. Soft, sweet cookies with a citrus zing. Totally addictive, one will never be enough.
My featured Bake of the Week from last week’s entries are these delightful little Chocolate Bundtlettes – How cute? And topped with a strawberry is even cuter. Like me, Jhuls from The Not So creative Cook is a migraine sufferer and is contemplating the relationship between migraines and chocolate in her post. Doesn’t put either of us off eating it though!
I also want to give a special mention to Baking Queen 74 for inspiring me to make these Brownies – They are just too tempting. I’ve ended up buying 3 lots of raspberries this week, just because of these pictures!
And onto the roundup:
1. Oh good gracious, how incredible does this Lemon & Coconut Pull Apart Bread look from the Domestic Gothess? Those spring colours and flavours!
2. Oatmeal Peanut Butter Scones – I’m imagining eating these on a hot sunny afternoon in the garden – Baking in PJs
3. Giraffes can Bake asks who could possibly not like Creme Brûlée? I’m afraid that’s me! Even I have admit that her Lime & Ginger Brûlées look wonderful though
4. Haman’s Ears or otherwise known as Baklawa Hamantachem from Winnie’s Blog – I love anything with nuts and cinnamon!
5. Tres Leches Cake is nowhere near as popular in the UK as it should be – This looks one of the best from Giraffes Can Bake
6. Reminiscent of visiting my Grandma’s: Raspberry Coconut Loaf from Baking in Pyjamas

Entering into The Baking Explorer & Cakeyboi’s Treat Petite linky – Their theme this month is MUM, so I tarted the cookies up with a pretty ribbon to make them ideal for a Mother’s Day gift.
