Jam doughnut style muffin recipe

Jam doughnut style muffin recipe

These are the jam version of my lemon curd muffin recipe. The swap is of course the jam which I gave a heaped teaspoon instead of just a teaspoon of and no jam doughnut is complete without a sprinkling of castor sugar. Being gluten-free I miss things like doughnuts I have yet to taste a gluten-free version or seen any in the shops. So this recipe works well as a faked one. The jam in … Read entire article »

So on the off-chance I thought I do a pasta bake instead see if that could tempt her taste buds and the good news is it did! I really like pasta bake but one problem is … Read entire article »

Crumbly Blackberry slices

There are still plenty of blackberries out there for the picking so I am sharing another new recipe for these oh so scrumptious blackberry slices. It is crumbly but in a delicious way.

So please let me know either as a comment or tweet me @Over_A_Cuppa … Read entire article »

Blackberry & Vanilla sponge puddings

Blackberry & Vanilla sponge puddings

There are lots of blackberries weighing heavy on the bushes this year so perfect time to make gorgeous blackberry inspired things. There is a simple pleasure from collecting things from the wild and eating them. Even if there is a high risk of getting scratched, getting stung by nettles which always seem to grow near by and generally covered in blackberry juice it still is one of life’s simple pleasure. Make something gorgeous with them and … Read entire article »

3 ingredient banoffee ice-cream

3 ingredient banoffee ice-cream

This time of year the banana’s are ripening so quickly so the ones that have gone too freckly get chopped into a few pieces and put in the freezer. I know that banana’s at this stage are so much healthier but I really can not stomach them just as a banana at this stage. So with an ever-growing collection of ripe banana’s in the freezer I decided to take my regular 2 ingredient banana ice-cream and … Read entire article »

Cooking up a spicy chicken casserole with Viking

Cooking up a spicy chicken casserole with Viking

Cooking with Viking, yes I thought exactly the same! Viking are surely only stationary, bubble wrap and office refreshments of the non-alcoholic type! But no Viking has a whole lot more from back to school (handy for this time of year), cleaning shop to their cook shop. I can remember loving flicking through the Viking catalogue before I hit my 20′s. As I read that I feel like I am implying I am still in … Read entire article »

Soreen Squidgy Road recipe

Soreen Squidgy Road recipe

Soreen is one of those things I wish I could eat but can not anymore since I have been gluten-free. Soreen satisfy a sweet craving but are actually low in fat and as things go pretty healthy! Of course with this recipe I have totally cancelled out the healthy part by applying lots of chocolate, but look at it this way it is healthier than regular Rocky Road thanks to the Banana Soreen! So no … Read entire article »
