Using up the last of the marshmallows to make this a variation on the typical rice krispie treats.
Again didn't have much time for the photography today so not happy with the photo whatsoever but I really wanted to share the idea with you that you can play with what cereal you can use instead of rice krispies.

Today i was very excited to be baking as it was my first time making dairy free cakes, I already bake gluten free but last week decided to try out a dairy free diet too. To be honest I was not sure what to expect but in the end they just tasted pretty much like regular cupcakes which is great and to those unaware of what they are made of would unlikely taste the difference.

I used my basic cake recipe [link] but used ASDA gluten free flour and Pure which is a sunflower based dairy free butter/spread. As a topping I heated up some lemon juice with sugar then poured on the cupcakes while still warm.

That's it, that's all my Christmas practice baking done, no more photos until after Christmas. Sorry for the rush job on this photo, I haven't got the time at the moment to be taking lots of pictures.

During going through the photos to make the tutorial for these I found this photo. I don;t normally like to post more than one photo of the same food but oh well.



Jam on toast is just so, well boring sometimes, especially for my kids so today for breakfast I decided to liven it up a little by turning it into something a bit different.

I call it a semi trifle because to me a proper trifle must have whipped cream, several layers and ideally in my family if there is time jelly (or jello to you Americans)

As i said in a recent journal post i don't have much time for baking at the moment. I had some eggs needing to be used up so yesterday made a simple vanilla sponge when i had a spare 5 minutes so that i could store and use for other things over the coming days. Today a 5 minute semi-trifle made at 6am this morning as a little treat to go in my eldest daughters lunch box today. Sponge pieces soaked in a little juice of the tinned oranges used, marmalade, tinned custard and a little grated dark chocolate on top.

I do have a recipe for trifle, my favourite kind, strawberry [link]

Vanilla sponge with strawberry jam, butter cream and a sprinkling of icing sugar.

It's been a while since I last made a Victoria sponge so this was a nice change. It's my go to recipe when making cakes for people I don't know or know well enough to know their tastes as none of the flavours are too offensive or over powering, it is a simple all round cake and gets the job done. I even read yesterday it was the most bought cake here in the UK for 2012.

This cake I made with my kids, I am finally learning a way of baking to make everyone happy. I measured the ingredients, my eldest poured it all in the mixing bowl while my youngest mixed, then they both took turns mixing until ready.

My eldest Sarah especially wanted to help with this cake as it is a thank you cake for her teacher for doing an amazing job of taking care if her in school on Friday after a health scare, those who have read my recent journal will know why. Sarah even made him a lovely thank you card.

Back to the cake, it being so simple makes it very hard to find interesting ways of photographing it but I just loved that part of the cake with the jam oozing out ready for someone to come along with their finger to scoop it all up for a taste.

No your eyes do not deceive you! This is a savoury dish by me!

Christmas maybe over but with it comes a lot of leftovers. For us this year those leftovers mainly consist of loads of cooked vegetables so for lunch today this is what i made my girls. Carrot, pea, cauliflower, sprout and broccoli pots with vegetable gravy, topped with mashed potatoes and finally sprinkled with grated cheese. Quick and easy, just what is needed today after a busy day of cooking yesterday.

Banana and nutella mixed with melted chocolate (the kids don't like Nutella too rich so adding chocolate I can get the perfect balamce) on crisp, warm baguette bites (using up leftovers from Christmas again)
Gluten free people out there, if like me you don't like gluten free bread then use some gluten free cake as a base instead.
Nut issuse? Just use melted chocolate instead. Once you add the banana these bites need eating up straight away before the banana starts to discolour so you don't need to worry about the chocolate being too hard as it will still be melted or at least only semi set at that point.

Nutella and banana combo inspired by my crepes

Using up leftovers again! Today using up some butter and cream as i want it all out of the house and replaced with dairy free items. You can probably tell i got my inspiration from yesterdays star cake.

Sometimes you just can't beat the simple things in life. There's nothing quite like some quick homemade rustic goodness served fresh from the oven, all warm and comforting just waiting for a nice helping of butter to slightly melt and ooze with the added sweetness of some jam to satisfy a slight hunger in the afternoon or any other time of the day for that matter.

I used the recipe from a cookbook I have but I know I can find better so will be using this one next time from the BBC if anyone is interested in having a go [link] if you are gluten or lactose intolerant just swap the ingredients for the flour or milk you normally use.

It has been a long time since seeing scones presented this way, a very common thing in old tradtional bakeries when i was a child now replaced by the cut out version.
