Welcome to 2019. In fact Happy New Year to you and thank you for reading my blog for another year. This is my first baking related blog post this year and indeed for a few weeks, as I enjoyed a nice little blogging break over Christmas. Of course, I still cooked and baked a lot but it was for my family and it was nice to take a few weeks off. Read More
As much as I enjoy cooking and baking for my family, it is always nice when I do not have to and to have someone else prepare a meal for me instead. I suppose as a family we eat out maybe once a month, sometimes more like if we are away on holiday. There was a time when my boys were younger that we hardly never ate out. Mostly due to them being fussy eaters and also because sometimes the hassle of keeping them occupied while waiting for food, was too much for me to be able to relax and enjoy the ambience of eating out!
This festive Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake would make a striking centrepiece on your table this Christmas. A chocolate sponge cake covered in various Maltesers chocolates and some smartie red noses too!
I was starting to panic that I was not going to get a chance to make this cake and blog about it before Christmas. As it is, I am cutting it very fine with less than one week to go until the big festive day! Thankfully, my boys have Christmas parties at school this week, so it was the perfect excuse to at last make this Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake.
This decadent Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Overload Bundt Cake is a Reese’s peanut butter chocolate fan’s perfect cake!
I call this cake Vegan because the sponge and frosting are egg and dairy free. However, Reese’s peanut butter chocolates, together with the milk and white chocolate drizzle toppings, are of course not vegan. Therefore if you wanted to make this cake completely vegan then you would need to find an alternative topping. Nonetheless this delicious Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Bundt Cake was good enough for the person I baked it for.
France is a country that feels like home to many who’ve never even set foot in the country. The time has never been better thanks to relaxed French travel laws and affordable flights in the off season.
