Decadent Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes

Chocolate! Who doesn't like chocolate, especially in cupcake form. So here i have a rich, moist chocolate cupcake with a sweet (although not too sweet) chocolate buttercream, all topped off with a suprise strawberry centre. Now this recipe may seem so simple that it would be pretty ludicrous to call is 'Decadent' but trust me once you've tried them you will truly understand how these cupcake are worthy of being called decadent!

Spiced Rhubarb Crumble

Okay so i was going to use this blog just for the things i bake, such as cookies, cupcakes, brownies etc. but i made a rhubarb crumble today after kindly being giving some rhubarb by my father-in-law and to be quite frank my internet was down just when i wanted to find a rhubarb crumble recipe (for some reason i've never written down the recipes i've used in the past) So i decided to wing it, throw a few bits together and hope for the best and the end result was so incredible i had to tell you all about it.

Marshmallow Cookies

So i've had 2 bags of mini marshmallows staring at me from the kitchen cupboard all week and i've been racking my brains the last couple of days as to what i was going to do with them.

White Chocolate and Pistachio Blondies

I've been wanting to use pistachios in a recipe for a long time but was put of by the whole peeling and chopping of that particular nut. However today i took the plunge, bought a packet and started peeling.

Sweet Cinnamon Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread? What is monkey bread you ask? Well until very recently i had never even heard of monkey bread (or Pull Apart bread) but i eventually heard about this sweet, sticky sharing bread and had to give it ago.
