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.

Pink Ombre Madeleines #GBBO #PatisserieWeek

These pretty little Pink Ombre Madeleines would make a lovely addition to any birthday party, afternoon tea or mini celebration.

It is semi finals week already! This makes me a little sad, for it means that GBBO 2018 is almost finished for another year. However, for my waistline it is probably a good thing, because all this baking while delicious is not good for my figure!  This week is also Patisserie Week and I have attempted a new bake this time, with my Pink Ombre Madeleines.

Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova

This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova would make an impressive centrepiece. Marshmallowy meringue filled with a chocolate cream and raspberries, topped with more of the same plus chocolate soil, raspberry blood coulis and meringue ghosts and chocolate spiders. Try if you dare…..

Halloween is such a great excuse to get creative when I bake and make some fun treats to share with my friends, family and blog readers. There is just so much scope to get messy in the kitchen and create something that looks fun and tastes delicious. This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova is actually very easy to make and does not take as long as you might think.
