Chocolate Reindeer Swiss Roll

Give a chocolate swiss roll a festive make over and turn it into a Chocolate Reindeer Swiss Roll, perfect for serving during the Christmas holidays.

Now I appreciate that when you think of Christmas and chocolate Swiss rolls, you tend to think of a chocolate Yule log. Many a time when I was a young girl, I would turn a humble shop bought Swiss roll into an edible tile log, something which my brother and I enjoyed eating. However, instead of this, why not make a Swiss roll into a Chocolate Reindeer , complete with edible antlers and facial features.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake #GBBO #Veganweek

This decadent Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake is great for those following a plant based diet. It is fudgy and delicious and the iced cobweb and added spiders are optional!

It is Vegan week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and for someone who has never made a vegan cake before, this proved to be a little tricky. However, thankfully after a third attempt in the kitchen last Friday, this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake was created and I was very happy with it.

This gorgeous Sticky Gingerbread is packed full of warming spices and is delicious. It is perfect for when the weather turns more autumnal. 

This delicious Sticky Gingerbread is very easy to make and is perfect for anyone who enjoys the warming flavours of ginger. I have added coconut milk and desiccated coconut to my gingerbread, as I really love how well this compliments the cake and adds an extra flavour dimension. However, this is optional and would work equally as well without any coconut being added.

Banana Funfetti Traybake

You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet on the blogging front this month. It is simply because I have been taking an impromptu break while the boys have been off school, so that I can enjoy my time with them. Of course this is not always the case with the bickering , moaning and shouting that goes on – and that is just me LOL! Seriously though, the 4 weeks we have had have flown by, and with less than 2 weeks to go now until the new school year begins, I have not been in a hurry to get back to blogging.
