Chocolate Fudge Cake

I was given this recipe when my son was a little boy… he was 28 a couple of days ago! It’s a tasty cake topped with a delicous chocolate fudge icing. The magic ingredient that makes this taste so good is Evaporated Milk! This was part of my childhood in the 1970s when we used…

Potatoes In A Cake?

Yes… Potatoes can go in a cake… no joke… and it’s absolutely delicious. One of my favourite cookery books was gifted to me by Lynn Hill of Clandestine Cake Club. As we had recently got our allotment she thought I might enjoy some new baking ideas and she was right, this has become a well…

Pumpkin And Dark Chocolate Bread

I know it’s a little early in the season for fresh pumpkin but I’ve still got a few bags of roasted pumpkin in our allotment freezer. Now it’s summer I like to hide vegetables into dishes, especially into sweet treats! The colour of this batter was a beautiful orange so I hope it keeps some…

Giant Cupcake Bundt Cakes

Mum’s 70th birthday was coming up so I needed a new Bundt tin. I seem to use the word NEED quite often where food or Bundt tins are involved! Anyway I saw a Nordic Ware Giant Cupcake tin online and quickly snapped it up.      I made a test cake and decided it wasn’t that…

Cherry Chocolate Fudge Bundt Snowman Cake

As you’ve probably guessed, I loved my Nordic Ware Bundt tins. Some of my tins are winter themed so now it’s December I can use them as much as I want, one of these is my 3D snowman tin which I understand has now been retired.   Last year I’d made a Cherry Chocolate Fudge cake…

Cola Bundt Cake

What is it about the dark elixir of Cola that we all love? At this time of the year we all start to get giddy about the Coca Cola lorry and the tune ‘Holidays Are Coming!’ makes us smile when it plays on the TV adverts. So the perfect time to make a Cola Cake…

Thanksgiving Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bundt

I thought my chocolate and peanut butter bundt recipe would work well in my gorgeous new Nordic Ware Autumn Wreath bundt tin and it did.  With the addition of some Reese’s pieces I thought it looked a perfect Thanksgiving cake.  I love how these little morsels of PB candy goodness are in autumnal colours to…

Spiced Almond Crunch Bundt Cake

This is another cake from The Great Holiday Baking Book from Nordic Ware. I used my Kugelhopf Bundt tin.      I baked this for the Curly One’s birthday today and decorated with chocolate M&M’s. This is a lovely recipe book with all recipes in grams and cups making them easy to follow recipes.

Orange Spiced Chocolate and Cranberry Bundt Cake

Five tiers with layers of spiced pumpkin bundts and chocolate bundts, covered with salted caramel, salted caramel nuggets and gingerbread popcorn. And yes… it tasted as amazing…
