Yorkshire Parkin

This was a special request from a friend who randomly messaged me asking for cake. As that turned out to be such a spectacular fail, he came back to me and asked for this. I’d never heard of parkin before so I was keen to look it up and give it a go.

The spices are the star ingredients of parkin, as well as the porridge oats which gives it a great crumbly texture. Black treacle is key too, which I’ve never used before and was looking forward to trying.

Banana and Mixed Fruit Flapjacks

Another team meeting at work = another bake to bring along with me. I’ve got a reputation to uphold – the clinical manager is even thinking of making us have these meetings twice a month instead of once because he’s getting so fond of my treats! I have been baking up an absolute storm recently so I searched to try and find a healthy recipe for flapjacks.

I think I did a good job of keeping them healthy and delicious, just look at those ingredients up there, are you drooling already!?

Fudgy Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

I made these as a special treat for Alex to take round to his friend’s place for his annual Super Bowl viewing party. This is a completely new one on me as it featured ingredients I’ve never used before (in a cake anyway) and because there were no eggs or butter/fat in it.

This is from the healthy eating dessert blog that Alex found and I was definitely looking forward to how they turned out.

Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies

I originally found this brownie recipe online after scouring the internet. I have a friend who is gluten intolerant and she always has to go without whenever I bake for friends so I specifically wanted a recipe for her. She also loves chocolate so a brownie seemed perfect. I’ve made these brownies a few times now, it’s become my go to recipe and I have literally never had a bad result with them.

As well as being gluten free, they are also dairy free so especially good for you! (well slightly anyway). This is a recipe I know and love and I want to share everything with you, that I think you will enjoy.
