Banana bread
I felt like sharing this recipe for banana bread on mbakes because when I was testing it as a bundt cake, it took about five attempts to nail. It’s the sort of banana bread that tastes best when eaten the day it’s baked, when the the outer crust is still cr...

No bake cheesecake with black pepper strawberries
Hello. It’s me. I’m still here, I’m just mostly on the other side, watching Tasty video after Tasty video and admiring all the drippy cakes on Instagram. A lot has changed since I last blogged, food seems to be moving in the direction of fast forward videos...

Violet iced gems
These violet coloured gems were cobbled together from a batch of leftover pastry, and the remaining whites of an egg that I used to brush over Tom Kerridge’s milk buns recipe . I’m not trying to go off focus, but if there is ever a bun that needs to accompa...

Blood orange drizzle cake
It doesn’t get much more humiliating than having your last post be festive themed… Trees are blossoming and British men are shorts-clad in 10-degree weather. Then there I am, blogging an out of season drizzle cake.  Cakes that require baking in rectangular ...

Mincemeat and frangipane tart
As we get older, do our sweet-buds start appreciating the finer desserts in life, do we prefer treacle steamed pudding to whipped cream covered microwave brownie with toffee sauce? I’m 22 today and I cannot be bothered for birthday cake. Steamed pudding or ...

Yeasted Almond and Sea Salt Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie
Inside our flat there is a seven-foot tree held in position by the ceiling . This year we chose a sparing selection of fancy shmancy £4-a-pop John Lewis decorations instead of 100 glittery baubles from the Pound Land.  The tree is leaning slightly to the le...
