Coffee and Walnut Baked Doughnuts

Coffee and Walnut Baked Doughnuts

These Coffee and Walnut Baked Doughnuts are perfect for a coffee morning to eat along side a coffee or even a cup of tea. They are baked rather than fried and topped with a coffee flavoured icing and some walnut pieces .

After the first batch of baked doughnuts that I made for the final of my GBBOBloggers2018 bake along linky, I excitedly wrote down a few new recipe ideas . The first of which were for Coffee and Walnut Baked Doughnuts, flavours which I felt would work well in doughnut form as they do so well in cake form.

Toffee Apple Danish Pastries #GBBO #DanishWeek

These delicious and melt in the mouth Toffee Apple Danish Pastries are buttery, crispy and sweet and if you make your own pastry, very satisfying too.

Welcome to week 8 of the GBBO and therefore week 8 of my bakes along linky (aka GBBOBloggers2018 / GBBOBakeoftheweek) and it is a Bake Off first this week as we see Danish Week. In celebration of this, I have attempted to make some Toffee Apple Danish Pastries and I even made my own Danish pastry from scratch, which is a first for me too!

Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie #GBBO #PastryWeek

This Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie has been inspired by Halloween for a bit of easy dessert fun. Why not give it a try for your family and enjoy seeing the ‘bloody’ cherry filling ooze out!

It is Pastry week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and while the pies featured on the show will be very ornate and pretty, I just did not have the time last weekend to make a show stopper of a pie. Instead I did find time to make this Halloween inspired Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie.

Double Chocolate and Cherry Buns #GBBO

Double Chocolate and Cherry Buns #GBBO

These Double Chocolate and Cherry Buns are made with an enriched dough and are delicious served as a weekend breakfast treat, or as an elevenses snack alongside a well earned cuppa.

These Double Chocolate and Cherry Buns are quite easy to make really. Not too much of a faff. I hate faffing about so luckily, despite the 2 proves that they require, they are still relatively uncomplicated to achieve.

Funfetti Custard Creams #GBBO 2018 Week 1: Biscuits

Funfetti Custard Creams #GBBO 2018 Week 1: Biscuits

These delicious biscuits are a fun take on the traditional custard cream biscuit we all grew up with. My Funfetti Custard Creams are as easy to make as they are to eat, and too nice to dunk in your tea!

Funfetti Custard Creams

The Great British Bake Off is back!!!! Yaaaay *does a happy dance* ! Of course this means that it also sees the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off *does another happy dance*.  Also, it sees the return of me baking lots and trying not to gain too much weight! Well, I have failed on that score already with my scrumptious Funfetti Custard Creams, as I have already eaten one and will probably devour another while I watch the show shortly.
