Brownies are my go-to bake when I’m craving a sweet treat. I love their gooey centre and indulgent dark chocolate taste.

I made these delicious Baileys Pumpkin Spice cupcakes for a Halloween bake sale at work, raising money for my volunteering project in India at the start of next year.

Hot Cross Buns

11th April 2017

Originally posted last Easter, I thought I’d repost this as I will for sure be using my hot cross bun recipe again this week – and I hope you will too! There’s nothing better than a hot cross bun to me. They’re sweet, they’re buttery and they remind me of spring like nothing else does. […]
