Recipe | Coffee Cake with Bailey’s Buttercream

Coffee cake has long been a favourite of mine. Two flavoured sponges, sandwiched together with a thick buttercream. Perfection on any day. On a blizzard day though, this is beyond perfection.

Grown Up Rice Krispie Squares | Recipe

Sometimes I just want to make something really simple like Rice Krispie Squares. Easy to make and even easier to eat! I would hardly even call this a recipe. It’s a good one though as dark chocolate and peanut butter make it slightly more adult and even more indulgent. While we are now officially into…

Ginger Crunch Biscuits | Recipe

It’s been a while since I shared a recipe post with you so wanted to post my Ginger Crunch Biscuits. These guys are more substantial than regular ginger man biscuits as I have added some Jumbo Porridge Oats to give them an extra bite. They are also thicker and are more cookie like. I think…

Sweet Cinnamon Loaf

I honestly think my love for loaf cakes will never fade. Every time I see one I just feel happy. Even the really crappy, €2 ones you find in petrol stations. I love them. I rarely buy them, but pick them up and carry them around the shop for a while before I leave it…
