Very simple and delicious muffins, full of oats and naturally sweet sultanas which are very quick and easy to put together. I’ve listed the original recipe below and given the options for Gluten Free in bold.
I found these muffins quite sweet so you can reduce the brown sugar if you like. They are perfect to take for lunch or to take to school.
A very simple and delicious tea time cake full of apples and spices to give it warmth. Using both dark and light brown sugar gives the cake texture a rich, almost caramel flavour. You can opt to add in sultanas but equally, adding in dried cranberries would give a great contrast. I topped the cake with walnuts and after enjoying a slice, I think it would benefit greatly from adding some into the mix.
This cake is very moist and needs delicate handling once it’s baked. I would recommend you leave it sit for a good 20/25 minutes before removing it from the tin to a wire rack.
Traditionally we make our scones with buttermilk or regular milk but this recipe uses Greek Yoghurt instead. I was sceptical of course. I thought it would be way too dry and not be able to work into a dough but it worked! The scones were really good.
You can use a caramel drizzle on these if you want to dress them up and they are equally delicious on their own or with a dusting of icing sugar.
These Apple Tart Cookies are soft and chewy and there’s no shaping to be done before baking. They are full of delicious pieces of apple and you can add white chocolate chips for extra sweetness if you like.
I always think of just “pure comfort” when it comes to apple tarts and they are always such a big hit with everyone. To have them in cookie form is another lovely element without having to make pastry. I love the fact these cookies don’t have lots of sugar in the ingredients and adding a glaze at the end just adds a nice touch of sweetness.
So I know there seems to be an excess of ginger related recipes happening now but I have a tin of treacle that’s about to run out and a tub of bicarbonate of soda that has a “use before” date drawing near so I’m using them up with my ginger recipes. If you don’t like ginger, I apologise in advance 😉
This is a light and moist ginger cake which is just so delicious. It’s made in a brownie tin or you can make it in a 2lb loaf tin, with a few tweaks in baking time. Oh did I mention no mixer? Yes I love a recipe that just literally needs mixing and no equipment.
Oh the smell in the house! Seriously, the smell was heavenly and just full of comfort. It was like Christmas was bottled and let loose at ours.
This recipe originates from Shugary Sweets but I wanted to make these lovely cookies a little bit healthier. I also wanted them to be good for your daily cuppa or equally perfect to give as a gift, bring to a Coffee Morning or enjoy with friends. They have a lovely mix of spice and can be served with or without the cinnamon icing.
You can easily convert these cookies to Gluten Free. Simply use GF oats, GF plain flour and GF baking powder.
I baked them for 15 minutes at 170C (conventional oven) but if you like your biscuits on the crunchy side, then leave them in for 16/17 minutes just to give them that bit extra.
Basically, this recipe is a hug in a traybake! It’s so delicious, so warming and full of comfort. The bonus is that it’s really simple to make too. You can serve it with crème fraiche or whipped cream for a dessert or just slice into squares and share with your friends over a cuppa.
These delicious squares can easily be converted to Gluten Free by replacing the flour and oats to gluten free options. As it’s basically a crumble, it will convert well.
Depending on the size of the bars, you should get about 16 generous slices out of this recipe. You don’t need to turn the oven on until you’ve almost completed the apple filling so you can make the filling first if you need to get ahead.
A totally delicious recipe that offers just the right amount of sweetness with the lovely warmth of cinnamon in every bite and a cinnamon flavoured slightly crusty top drizzled in a glaze. If you prefer, you can leave the glaze off..
I’ve adapted this recipe from a US magazine to grams and changed some ingredients to try and make it a little healthier than in it’s original form. It’s made in quick time with only a spoon to mix, no special equipment needed. Ticks lots of boxes!
