Oat and Walnut Banoffee Cake

This banoffee cake is a wholesome banana loaf, flavoured with honey and yogurt, covered with a rich toffee sauce. I love how much texture there is in this cake, with the oats, chunks of walnut and roughly pureed ripe banana. The gentle spicing of the nutmeg in the banana loaf and subtle hint of rum […]

Clementine and Almond Cake

This citrus scented, mildly spiced and light clementine and almond cake seems like the perfect antidote to the overindulgence of the festive period, whilst still providing all those delightful Christmas flavours.

They were quite fragrant and had a nice subtle lavender flavour which really complimented the strong fresh lemon flavour of the cupcakes. The cupcakes were easy to make as they used […]
