Figs- my favourite fruits of the season. Pictured here post-bake with orange, spices and honey 🍂
I love a good spread. Thanks to all our family and closest friends for helping us welcome our daughter into the world yesterday. We are very lucky.
It’s the school holidays yet also busiest work week for me, so yesterday I baked a batch of these rolls to satisfy family tea time break and spent some baking fun time with little one. .
The weather here is changing nicely after a heavy bout of rain (yearly excitement for us in Doha!), so these hot rolls were very much welcome whilst sipping tea ☕️
Had a fantastic evening with some old Chicago friends, chilling out by their fire pit. The kids carved pumpkins and I drank a lot of Jon’s exceptional home brew. Then they introduced us to the art of making a mores. Is it wrong to admit this is the first time ever ☺️ . They were absolutely delicious. A perfect evening.
This week's technical challenge: Paul Hollywood's aebleskivers. The batter itself only has 1 tsp of sugar (for ~16 aebleskivers) so it's really integral to get a generous amount of filling in. First couple were bleh but I got better. I still need to make a vegan pavlova but I am not vegan and I don't like eating meringue... #gbbo2018 #gbbo #greatbritishbakeoff #aebleskivers #danishweek
was all about #bread
. Made this Cinnamon Star Loaf from @kingarthurflour
AND the No Knead Crusty Loaf. First attempt at making bread. The star loaf came out really well. Wanted to get more rise out of the country loaf, but still pretty pleased for a first attempt.
Today’s cardio session brought to you Great British Bake Off style #nosoggybottoms
, I made... danishes! Half have cheese filling and the other raspberry. ❤️
Third try at baguettes, this time with @paul.hollywood
gbbo masterclass recipe (https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/paul_hollywoods_55351)
Came out very tasty with a great crumb texture - my oven took its time to bake them sadly, but still were good. Spread a little to the sides in spite of using the couche and being very delicate passing to the baking sheet...sigh, will keep trying to perfect!

These Danish pop tarts (Hindbærsnitter) are off the charts! Homemade chocolate shortcrust pastry filled with a vanilla cream cheese filling and topped off with a vanilla splat, crushed oreos and chocolate drizzle. GBBO Danish Week bake-along ☑. クッキーズアンドクリームポップタートです。それはポピュラーなブレックファストスナックです。私はそれを完全に焼きました。
Watching Great British Bake Off and eating dog biscuits in his PJs
Late night TV for toddlers... the unsleepy boy insisted on watching “Bake Off please” 😊 #thatsmyboy #GBBO
Gluten and dairy free chocolate cookies ✨ I finally got round to making my first recipe video! It was the first time I’ve ever done anything like this so it was a steep learning curve but I can’t wait to make more! I first just need to clear some memory on my laptop; you know you take too many photos when they are taking up half of it 🙈 you can find the recipe for the cookies on my blog (link is in the bio)
