Lemon and Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

This is a great alternative to a lemon drizzle cake - not that there's anything wrong with a lemon drizzle cake, of course! And if lemon isn't your thing, try using the juice and zest of oranges instead.

Thai Spiced Pulled Pork


Ok, so this isn't really baking, but it's too tasty not to share with you! This pulled pork recipe works EVERY time. It's a real crowd-pleaser and is relatively cheap - a £4/5 piece of pork shoulder would easily feed six people, and you'd still probably have left overs (unless your friends are greedy like mine!). It takes a little preparation, and a long time to cook, so it's definitely not a last minute meal but it's totally worth it.

Spiced Blackberry Ripple Cupcakes

I'm back with my first bake in weeks, but I went back to my Mum's to use her oven... ha ha. Our house is still a little dusty from all the work we're doing so I thought it would be better to go back to where I knew it was clean! The blackberries used in this recipe were picked just around the corner from my house, and combined with the spices in the sponge, they make for a great transitional flavour combination as we head from summer to autumn.

My New Kitchen

Firstly, sorry for my complete lack of posts during August. It's been a long, hard, busy, stressful month.

Secondly, as we are nearing the point where we should be actually moving into our new home, I thought I'd share my new baking space with you!
