Recipe of the Week: Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes

Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes

When I think of Lemon Drizzle Cake, I think of sunshine, and I am missing it at the moment!


Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE autumn, it is my favourite season, but when the weather turns and the mornings get gloomier, a lovely hot cup of tea and a Lemon Drizzle Cupcake allows me to forget about the cold temperatures on the other side of the window…

Recipe of the Week: Chow Mein

Vegetable Chow Mein

Chow Mein


This recipe only takes 15 minutes to create and requires minimal prep, so you can treat yourself to a tasty ‘take-away’ at home.

The classic combination of crunchy vegetables, tender noodles and egg works perfectly.





Chow mein are Chinese stir-fried noodles with vegetables and sometimes meat or tofu; the name is a romanisation of the Taishanese chāu-mèn.

The dish is popular throughout the Chinese diaspora and appears on the menus of most Chinese restaurants abroad.

It is particularly popular in India, Nepal, the UK and the US.

Different regions cooked Chow Mein differently, the chefs in Hong Kong fried the noodles crispy, while the other regions opposite of Hong Kong steamed the noodles, all the while all Chinese chefs used a hot wok to cook the finished product.

Bank Holiday Bake

Peanut Butter & Popcorn Layer Cake

Peanut Butter & Popcorn Layer Cake


I recently baked this for one of our customers as a thank you for their business and it went down a storm.

It really is super-easy to make but looks and tastes spectacular.

I’ve shared it with you before, but just in case you missed it, I’ll share it again.
