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*.

Gingerbread and rhubarb mini loaf cakes with lemon icing

Gloriously stick gingerbread with tart rhubarb complimented with lemon icing, delicious.

Chocolate Mini Rolls

Chocolate mini rolls featured on he Great British Bake Off made by my Saturday crew aged between 6 and 17 years

Pesto Mini Muffins

These savoury muffins are ideal for lunch boxes, picnics, parties and snacks. Lovely served warm or cold, they freeze well for up to 1 month.

Banana Bread

Ripe bananas are high in sugar so you don’t need to use as much. I’ve used wholemeal flour and maple syrup to reduce the GI levels meaning that it will keep your children going longer with the slow release carbohydrates.

Chocolate Chip Cookies - Sugar and gluten free

I make these weekly, try to limit myself to two per day, one with coffee in a morning and one with a cup of tea when the children get in from school.

Llamas in Hats birthday cake

My son loves the YouTube cartoon Llamas in Hats, personally I don't. It's pretty bloody and a little violent and I don't particularly approve but it's a teenage boy 'thing' so I made him a cake in the shape of one.

Gingerbread - low carb, sugar free, gluten free

Not entirely sugar free as there is a tablespoon of treacle in the recipe, hwoever, the gingerbread is soft not crisp and it tastes really good. My husband and children ate it without flinching, said they preferred the original ginger snap recipe but this was good. Praise indeed.

Coconut Macaroons - low carb, low sugar

I love coconut, good job as it's a fantastic ingredient to use for making low carb and sugar free recipes. This one has the additional of chocolate chips (ups the carb and sugar rating though)

Sugar Free Sweet Potato and Orange Cupcakes

I have changed this version of my original Sweet Potato and Orange cupcakes by replacing the sugar with a little maple syrup and using Sukrin no carb no sugar icing to ice the cakes.

Rhubarb and Pecan Brownies

This version of brownies has rhubarb which 'cuts' through the sweetness and works really well with the deeply sweet chocolateyness of the brownie to add a little sharpness.
