Easter Carrot Cupcakes

Easter is coming up but I won’t be home for it, so as you can see, I have already done my Easter Baking. At first, I considered making some traditional English Hot Cross Buns. But then I thought of the big Easter Brunch buffets that are the popular thing to do all over Germany and I […]

Strawberry Courgette Cupcakes

  June is a strawberry month in England. You get tasty strawberries in all the shops but sometimes I drive out to a farm to pick them myself. Strawberry picking always reminds me of the summer holidays when my cousin, sisters and I used to do this with our grandmother. The farm I go to here […]

Banana Muffins

  I always thought this receipe would be one of the first ones I put up on this blog and I’m surprised it’s taken me this long. That’s because these banana muffins are so quick to make and you can’t really go wrong with this easy receipe and even vary it slightly if you like […]

Guilt Free Strawberry Muffins

This simple that receipe I found on the Dashing Dish blog doesn’t include […]

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

This is all a bit of a cheat… To start with, these mini cakes are not even really brownie bites but rather little brownie based mini cupcakes. Furthermore, even I wouldn’t really eat these kind of sweet treats for breakfast or brunch – they are just too small! No, of course not. In fact, they […]

Rhubarb Marzipan Muffins

Have you noticed that it’s rhubarb time? My sister did and requested that I upload a receipe featuring the tangy vegetable that gets used rather like a fruit in most dishes (think crumble, compote, pie…). The obvious choice for me would have been to use rhubarb in a cake with a meringue pie topping, which […]
