I’ve never liked figs. I’ve always wanted to like them because everyone I know who likes figs doesn’t just like figs, they love figs. So they must be pretty good! But, sadly I’ve just never have been able to get past their fleshy weirdness. And they are…

I feel like adding “New York Times” to the title of this blog post makes it seem so much more important, like it’s a recipe worth paying attention to! There’s just something about the words new, York and times that alone don’t account for much, but when…

Sugar Plum Fairy Cake What to call this cake: Sugar plum fairy cake, or Sugars' fairy plum cake? Hah. Get it? I'm such a dag, I know, but who doesn't love a play on words? I mean, really, puns are great. But why would I call this cake a sugar plum fairy cake? Isn't that a character in the Nutcracker? What does ballet have to do with baking? Well, you'd be surprised. The energy, the resilience, the intensity - ballerinas and bakers have these things in common. I'm kidding. Baking's a pleasureful hobby, not a back-and-every-other-fragile-part-of-the-body-breaking career - though I suppose it can be if you really want it to be.

This cake isn’t very pretty, but then, neither are bananas. So, don’t be fooled by the distinct lack of good looks here, this cake is amazing! Whether you’re a banana lover or banana hater (honestly, I don’t understand you people!), this cake is worth…

I remember when I first made this cake. I think I was about 14 years old and just dipping my toe into the world of baking, having no real understanding of what I was doing. I don’t know why I chose to make that particular recipe, but if I know anything…

Isn’t it funny how we appropriate names and words but don’t really understand what it means? I mean, biscotti is just the Italian word for biscuit, right? It certainly sounds like it! But that, dear friend, is where you would be wrong. Strap in for a…

Can you tell yet that I’m a little bit obsessed with rhubarb? There’s basically always a bunch of rhubarb in the fridge at home, if for no other reason than it makes me smile when I open the fridge and see it! I’m kidding! I buy it because I love baking…
