Dairy Free - Ethically Sourced - Organic Where Possible - Handmade in Yorkshire
The Great British Bake Off....
Being a dairy free business, this week was preeeetttty easy for me as I’v got a whole load of recipes banked up, that i’ve made and experimented with over the past few years. This is one of the first ever bakes I sold on my stalls when I first started out. Hope you love it as much as me. The perfect autumnal bite.
Pastry! Ooh I do love pastry. Did anyone else just cook a lump of pastry in the oven (the spare leftover from the pie) in a ball so it was crisp on the outside and soft on the inside and gobble up the whole thing? Also fight over the biggest portion of pastry when the pie was cut? I did!
We all love a bit of spice in our lives. Especially those warm autumnal spices. I’m talking pumpkin spice, gingerbread and of course chai. It’s become a big thing over the past few years, in lattes, bakes, teas and cakes. Try this nut butter version. It’s gorgeous on top of hot steamy porridge bowls, in bakes and spread on top of hot toast/banana bread.
I do love a good dessert. My favourites have got to be a crumble, as it reminds me of my Grandma and baking with her when I was little or this chocolate date caramel bake that my Mum used to make all the time when I was younger. Best served with ice cream and hot out of the oven.
Chocolate Themed Recipes...
Well I do love a rich, indulgent and naughty, smooth and silky chocolate ganache tart with dairy free homemade shortcrust pastry and toasted crunchy flaked almonds. It’s unbelievable. I love to warm mine ever so slightly so it melts, just a tiny bit and then top it with a big lump of vanilla ice cream. Trust me, it’s incredible.
Thick and crunchy rocky road with chewy dried fruit and crumbly nuts. Whats not to like? Made with my peanut praline bars melted down into a thick chocolate sauce before all the textures are folded through.
