Since moving back home, baking has resumed (I partly think it's because there's a dishwasher in this house - and let's be honest it's a lifesaver!). I want to say I've been adventurous in the sense that I've not just made cupcakes, however these delicious pieces have all been from packet mixes (I know, I hate it too!). But, as soon as you've got a slice on your plate accompanied with a cup of tea, all is forgotten as to where it's come from. And that's all that matters really. Well, I know it does when there's a freshly baked cake in front of me!
Lemon Drizzle - If we are ever asked which cake is our favourite, Lemon drizzle always tops it, especially for any occasion. There's just something about it (especially in a loaf tin) with it's sweet taste and trimming of icing on the top. This recipe for the perfect lemon cake is definitely one to try. Adding in lemon peel also makes for the best flavours. Served with a piping hot pot of tea.
Honeycomb Brownies - When I saw this recipe on Olivia's blog, I knew what we'd be having for lunchtime snacks that week. I've always been a huge fan of crunchie, so adding it into a brownie was beyond words. These bites didn't last long in our fridge and are even tastier warmed up alongside a dollop of honeycomb ice cream! I think I'll be making these again this week, only thicker. And better.
