Teacakes

Teacakes

I use a bread machine to make the dough but you can do by hand too.

Ultimate Raisin & Chocolate Teacakes

OK, so if like me you love a toasted teacake with a generous helping (slice) of butter on it you just have to try this recipe. Some of the steps may seem a little excessive (like the 24hr cognac bath for the raisins) but trust me – the results are worth it.

Poor mans Brioche

Poor mans Brioche

So this still tastes great, mark my words. I am just on a quest to eat beautiful foods day by day rather then week by week because of how bad they actually might be for you! These are prefect for a midweek burger - far less guilt about smashing back tons and tons of butter!!!

Brioche Buns

Brioche is a bread of French origin that is similar to a highly enriched pastry, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb. I love making halloumi burgers with this recipe, yum!

Wholemeal Spelt Sticky Date Buns

Wholemeal Spelt Sticky Date Buns

Made in muffin tins to puff up and make a "snail shell", these lovely spelt buns ooze with buttery toffee and sticky date pieces. Best served warm from the oven with a steaming cup of tea or coffee to chase away the winter shills. Leftovers (if there are any!) will reheat well and can be frozen and zapped in the microwave for emergencies. There is a picture but it doesn't always seem to view in Firefox!

Chelsea Buns

An old classic which is great for afternoon tea or brunch

Light lemon buns

Light lemon buns

By using olive oil rather than butter, cutting down the sugar and introducing lemon into the recipe, these buns are lighter and fresher on the palette than an indulgent Danish pastry. That's not to knock Danish pastries at all - a time and a place for those, of course! From time to time, I have added grated dark chocolate with a little orange zest to the filling below, and that's quite a popular recipe with some of my family.

Chestnut & Rice buns

Chestnut & Rice buns

1st Attempt! Wanted to find a way of using chestnut flour and rice flour other than in bread. Just made these this morning and I am quite pleased with the taste. The amount of sugar could be altered as i dont like things too sweet. I woulsd sugestmore if you have a sweet tooth !! I felt they had a lovely taste but were a bit dry. Next time I shall try adding some fruit and also plan to try coco powder as well, watch this space.
