Baking

All recipes featured are our own unless otherwise stated. We love to cook and our inspiration comes from everywhere. We have travelled the world, eaten out in countless places and about to lose count of our literary food based collection. Ingredients are always fresh, we very rarely use processed food, everything is achievable at home if you want it to be.

Liquorice biscuits with blackberry curdWe adore liquorice in any format it happens to be, sweet, flavoured or salty, so these tasty biscuits are a delight to us but maybe an acquired taste to others. These are a variation on what is more commonly known as thumb print cookies.
Broccoli, halloumi, shallot, mint and pine nut cakeThis is a very easy and simple vegetarian pie with no pastry either. It is a very flexible recipe and you can change the vegetables, the cheese and herbs to whatever you have to hand. We have made this using green beans, goats cheese, thyme and walnuts which was equally delicious. Next time we might try cabbage, caraway, parsley and sunflower seeds.
Christmas donutsThis is not truly a donut batter as it contains no yeast but I used a donut tin to create the round cakes. If you don't have a donut tray then this mixture is very similar to a muffin mix so feel free to use a muffin tray instead. This recipe can be made using any mincemeat of your choice but for an extra treat why not try making our superfood goji and cranberry mincemeat instead.
Banana, coconut, allspice and pecan muffinsHomemade muffins are an absolute pleasure to make, the variety at hand is almost endless and once you master the method it becomes so easy, wet ingredients, dry ingredients, mix and bake, simple as that. These muffins came about after testing recipes from Caribbean Modern. Banana, allspice and coconut, classic ingredients of the islands.
