Haigh’s Chocolate Mud Cake

One of the things I love about food blogging is checking the post. Occasionally there are interesting-looking parcels waiting for me that I wasn’t expecting. If the parcel contains chocolate, well – my day is made.

Sponge Cake – Easier Than I Thought!

04/07/2014 | By

While I’m reluctant to air all of my shortcomings as a cook – and there are quite a few, believe me – I’ve decided to come clean on something that I’ve felt a little guilty about for some time. I’ve waxed lyrical about the comforts and joys of baking before on this blog and I’ve been up front about my fondness for cake, but I’m lazy.

Orange, Honey & Walnut Spice Cake – A-Cake-a-Week

28/02/2014 | By

Here’s the thing. I’ve just discovered a serious flaw in my cake-a-week plans. Not that I can’t get around to baking once a week, or that the troops let me down with the consumption of a cake a week – no, we’re all good there! My problem is blogging time. I’ve realised that if I blog once a week about cake it cuts into the time I have to blog about other food – and there is so much food to talk about!

Walnut & Date Slice – A Cake-a-Week

21/02/2014 | By

Now I know I fell off the wagon last week with my cake-a-week promise, but I just had to let you all know about the wonderful Tasting Australia Words To Go opportunity and, if it’s any consolation, I did bake (and eat) this slice last week. So I’m still on track, even if my weight isn’t.

The Cake-a-Week – Upsidedown Fig and Ginger Cake

07/02/2014 | By

I’m not sure if having made two cakes in two weeks constitutes being on a roll, but I’m feeling very confident about this whole cake-a-week thing. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that cake is actually one of my favourite food groups, but I also think I deserve brownie points for having baked in the hottest month of the year here in Adelaide.

Lavender and Lemon Syrup Cake

31/01/2014 | By

I often feel lethargic and disinterested when it comes to the daily drudge of what to put on the table each evening for dinner. It’s not always the cooking that I lose interest in, although I do have days when I struggle to find the will, but rather the constant decision making of what meals to plan day in, day out. And when I’m asked, as the plates are being cleared from one meal, what we are having for the next I’m ready to give the whole thing away – or drop the dirty plates on the head of the inquirer (and he knows who he is). However, when we are away on vacations and indulging in meals that someone else has planned, prepared and put in front of me I frequently find myself dreaming about all the wonderful things I intend to cook when I get back to my kitchen – contrary of me, I know.
