As most of us find on a regular basis, there were a couple of bananas that no one in the house would eat. God forbid you find some black on a banana! I didn’t want to make one of the usual bakes like Banana Bread so this recipe came to mind and what’s brilliant about it is that you can make 12 out of this recipe and freeze half of them for another day. Love that!

Jam Dodger Biscuits

I got quite brave one day and decided I was going to make a homemade version of the much loved Jammie Dodger. I decided that it was better if I knew what was in my biscuit and if I was going to indulge in a few, then at least I knew there were all good quality ingredients.

They just need some settling time in the fridge before baking so remember to include that in your planning. Have fun with them!

This simple and delicious sponge cake always gets a great response. I’m constantly surprised at how many people really love coffee cake and this one is a real treat. It’s got a lovely coffee flavour without being too sweet or artificial tasting which I feel is one of the reasons I lost my love of coffee cake for many years. I’m glad to say, this cake has given me a renewed interest!.

Nutella Cupcakes

This recipe basically uses up one large jar of Nutella between the cupcakes and the icing. You can also use some melted Nutella to drizzle on top of the finished cupcakes.  Because there’s sour cream in the ingredients, you get a really moist and light result which is a pleasant surprise as small cupcakes can suffer from over baking and drying out..

Rolo Caramel Cheesecake

A delicious, creamy dessert packed full of Rolos. It’s a no bake cheesecake so best to make it the day before you need it and let it set overnight in the fridge. They are a great dessert as you can make them well in advance which leaves you time for other things. I would recommend you leave it in the tin as long as you can as it doesn’t set totally solid like a baked cheesecake. It’s a little soft but just so gorgeous that it’s only a teeny issue.
