For all I know chocolate bark has had its day, but after seeing some rather sickly-looking ‘unicorn’ bark, I thought I’d give my own, more grown-up (see: decadent and chocolate-y) version a go.

I don’t eat a lot of pancakes. Unless I’m in America, in which case I’ll take a stack every morning with a vat of maple syrup and bacon or it’s Pancake Day in the UK, where Alex and I will competitively eat homemade pancakes, both sweet and savoury, until one of us is near toilet-hugging […]

The moister the better when it comes to my muffins. Now, now… I can’t stand (see: will eat at a slightly reduced rate), crisp or thick cakes or muffins. My banana and raspberry muffins are light and fluffy and a tad on the zingy side. They even taste a bit healthy and there’s not too much […]
