This beef stroganoff recipe is handed down from my mum and is now a firm favourite with the boyfriend!
I made my Nan a birthday cake and since she’s obsessed with ducks I had to track down a duck cutter. Managed to find one and this is the cake I made her 🙂
My stand mixer arrived yesterday and I, of course, had to play with it as soon as I got it, so my boyfriend asked me to make filled cupcakes with strawberry filling (as I also bought a cupcake plunger!)
Now, people who know me will know I go through phases. It happens fairly frequently. Sometimes it will be The Sims 2 (yes I know, I’m supposed to be an adult), sometimes it will be jewellery making. I always love baking, but in the last few days I’ve been addicted to eBay…
I’ve adapted a Hummingbird bakery recipe for this one. Don’t worry when you taste the buttercream and it’s not sweet. It’s not meant to be, it’s meant to be a tiny bit bitter I suppose you could call it. I didn’t think I’d like it as I don’t like dark chocolate, but it’s really nice!!
I simply adore scotch eggs, but they’re not friendly to the waistline when they’re fried, so these ones are oven baked. Still yummy and surprisingly still have a good bite like the fried ones 🙂
