Camp Bestival Planning

Mojitos for tomorrow night and in an ideal world all we would need is three things: Tequila, salt and limes, we wouldn't need anything else to get us through the weekend as no food would be required or remembered. However, we have children so that's not going to happen *sighs wistfully*.

Buckinghamshire Bake Off - 22 March 2014

HUGE announcement, I'm launching The Buckinghamshire Bake-Off on Saturday 22 March to raise funds for Sport Relief. Fabulous prizes, celebrity judges and cake, loads of cake.

Cherry Bakewell Tart

This is my twist on a classic Bakewell tart

Jaffa Cakes

This is a homemade version of the classic Jaffa Cake biscuit using old fashioned sponge drops made with the whisking method. Sponge Drops are the English version of a whoopie pie. Begin the day before as you'll need time for the jelly to set.

Eve's Pudding

Eve's pudding is so named as the recipe uses apples, I've made a winter version using apples and a mixture of other winter fruits: blackberries and plums in this case.

Low Fat Sugar free Banana Breakfast Muffins

A low fat and sugar free version of classic muffins with half wholemeal flour making them slightly healthier too. Ripe bananas and agave nectar replace the sugar to add sweetness.

Low Fat Blackcurrant Muffins

Low fat version of classic muffins with half wholemeal flour to make them slightly more healthy too. There is no butter or oil in this recipe so the end result can stick to the muffin cases a little, bake in silicone to avoid that. If you can’t get hold of quark increase the skimmed milk to 200ml.

Yorkshire Cheesecakes or Curd Cakes

I grew up eating these as cheesecakes, when I moved to London and ordered a cheesecake, this is what I expected. It turned up raw and I sent it back to be cooked and made a right fool of myself. I still think that raw cheesecakes are uncooked and these are proper ones, they are delicious.

Low Fat February

I'm determined to get back into shape and into my bikini for the summer. It feels like a long way off but February half term has just finished, the nights are getting lighter and March is in a week's time, eek!
