Basic Sourdough Loaf.

Buzzing through February so fast. I can’t believe my favourite month of the year is nearly over already. Thank the pancakes god that we still have one good day to come before it leaves us! I am still practising my Sourdough though and wanted to share another attempt with you all. This is my second…

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe

Another Trip Around The Sun: First things first – have you noticed the water marks on our kitchen table? They are all I can see and they drive me crazy. Our apartment came furnished, thank god, and this table is one of the few things that needs a bit of love. Honestly, it is now…

Cheese Dumplings Recipe

Don’t Dump that on me: Oh CHEESY DUMPLINGS in a home-made stew. Simple, wholesome pleasures and the perfect meal for a lazy Saturday. Throughout January I had some time off and used it to just enjoy myself and spent days cooking long, comforting meals at home. Enter Mary Berry’s Spanish Beef Stew with Smoked Paprika…

Valentine Vanilla Loaf Cake

Hello everyone! Such a busy few days for me so I’m a little late posting my Valentine themed cake. Big news this week, I started a new job! I’m really happy but as I’m sure you all know, with any new job there is so much to learn and take in. It’s always kind of…

Classic Coffee and Walnut Cake Recipe

Family baking – is there any better kind? The one thing my whole family love is Coffee Cake. This is a simple one but a great one to have up your sleeve. What birthday tea wouldn’t be improved by this? right you need: cake: 220g self raising flour 220g caster sugar 220g unsalted butter 2…

Simple Pancake Recipe.

You know when you get a craving for something particular and can’t get rid of it? That’s what happened me – all throughout January, I have had the biggest craving for pancakes with lemon and sugar. Simple but very effective. I have a small kitchen here in our Dublin apartment so need to set myself…

My Sourdough Journey continued..

Sourdough club! I’m so sorry I haven’t updated you but it really has been trail and error with this project. Okay so the last time I touched in, I had to leave my starter for another couple of days. When I went to look at it again, it had risen up and had a lot…

Feeding A Sourdough Starter.

Hello Sourdough Club! I hope you’re all as excited about this project as I am – I can’t believe how much my Starter had grown in just 3 days and, frankly, how disgusting it smelt. I read that that’s a good sign though so don’t freak out if yours is the same. Here you can…

Spiced Walnut Cake Recipe.

Good morning everyone – hope you’re all feeling happy and ready for a new day. Earlier in the month, I promised you a recipe for SpicedΒ Walnut Cake and I’m really excited to share this one with you as it wowed in taste. Honestly, walnuts get a bit of a bad name in the world of…

Spiced Vanilla Madeleines Recipe.

Morning everyone! As you’ll have probably guessed at this stage, I love to bake. But sometimes the pressure to bake new things all of the time can ruin the fun of baking and can distract from actually mastering recipes. I always feel that a home-baker should have a couple of signature wows that they can…

Sourdough Starter Recipe.

So I promised some structure and order to Where Is My Teaspoon on my January overview and am going to kick off today with Sourdough Starters. Don’t be put off by the idea of this – it really only takes a few minutes to make. Whether you are familiar with Sourdough Starters or not, you’ll…

Somebody say timing.

Nearly mid January and I’m starting off with an original Happy New Year ! If you are not absolutely miserable doing “Dry January” or on a horrible cleanse then I’m sure you are buzzing for the year ahead.Β I usually love to make goals for the year ahead. Instead of making a huge list this year,…
