Chocolate Courgette Cake

Yum

Last Thursday I got offered some lovely home-grown courgettes from someone at work, as they had far too many to use themselves. Never one to say no to free food I happily took them.

Thats right, bigger than my keyboard!



I had seen Simon from the Great British Bake-off make a chocolate and courgette cake so thought I would give it a go! I did ask around for some recipes and was told by a few people on twitter that the BBC Good Food recipe was the best! So here it is...

Chocolate Cookies

Yum

Chocolate-y goodness!


I am always on the hunt for a really good biscuit recipe, something easy yet delicious that I can make over and over again. Last weekend I had a wonderful baking day with the lovely Sacha. She came armed with this recipe from Yummly.com so we decided to give it a go.

Back to basics - Victoria Sponge

Yum

Well I definitely got my baking Mojo back this weekend! With a vengeance!

I spent Saturday shopping with my lovely sister and she bought me two new cookery books! The first was the Great British Bake-off
book, which accompanies the TV show that was on BBC2 and the second was Gizzi's Kitchen Magic which is not only gorgeous to look at but full of great tips and delicious recipes.

Oh the possibilities!


I spent most of my Saturday night immersed in these books, trying to decide which recipes to try, there was far to many to chose from.

In the end I decide to ease myself back into this baking game with a simple Victoria sponge. The bake-off book had a recipe which they dubbed "the perfect Victoria sponge" so I decided to try it and see how perfect it really was.

Long time no see...

Yum

Hello, my name is Helen and it has been over a year since my last blog post...

*hangs head in shame*

Sincerest apologies to the blogosphere, has been a long old year and I literally don't think I have baked anything in that time! *gasp*

I am happy to announce that I am moving to a lovely new house in just 3 short weeks! I am hoping a nice new kitchen will spur me on to get back to baking.

I have a list of recipes as long as my arm that I want to try, so please watch this space for upcoming deliciousness.
