Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Pecan Muffins

Autumn is here in full force (in my neck of the woods, at least) and that means it’s time for my favourite flavour combination of all time: apple and cinnamon! It’s a classic and it’s delicious. The start of autumn always marks my birthday as well; I turned 29 last week, and although I didn’t […]

Recipe: Lemon Madeleines

August has been a busy month with both highs and lows, and as a result, I haven’t been very active online (although I did start a TikTok last week – I’m @bookbakeblog on there). I also have done very little baking over the past month, apart from a birthday cake for my boyfriend, but today […]

Recipe: Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

About two weeks ago I posted this strawberry meringue recipe in which I told you about the bucketload of strawberries I bought. After that recipe, I still had a whole lot of them left, so I decided to do one of my favourite things in the world (at least when it comes to baking): make […]

Recipe: Strawberry Meringues

Strawberry season is upon us! It’s perhaps a little early still, but my local supermarket had a “two for 5 euros” thing going on so I caved and bought almost a kilo worth of strawberries.

5 Baking Recipes for When You Need Some Comfort

The world doesn’t seem able to catch a break lately, and I know we’re all struggling with it. We’re on day 10 of the war in Ukraine and I still can’t quite believe that this is truly happening. It makes me feel helpless and angry to witness one man causing so much destruction and heartbreak. […]

Recipe: Apple Oatmeal Sheet Pan Pie

In my opinion, very few things can top a good apple pie. It’s a classic for a reason! I don’t really bake it all that often, though, because when I’m craving apple pie, I don’t want to have to make a dough, then wait for it to rest, then roll it out, then create a […]

Recipe: White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Blondies

I love baking my own cookies, as is evidenced by the many cookie recipes on this blog, but there are some mass-produced cookies that I find very hard to pass up on and those are the Subway cookies! There’s something about them that’s just irresistible, so whenever I get a sandwich at Subway, I usually […]

Recipe: Dutch Filled Speculaas Tray Bake (Gevuld Speculaas)

It’s finally getting chilly outside again and I am feeling all of the autumn vibes – I’m even looking forward to Christmas already! The changes in seasons also means a change in my baking. While I’m all about the light, fruity bakes in summer and spring, the colder months have me baking up a storm […]
