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. Cue me stressing about what on earth I was going to do with that many strawberries… One brainstorming session later, […]

Recipe: Banana Bread Cookies

I love a good loaf of banana bread as much as the next person, but when I had some leftover bananas a few weeks ago, I felt like trying something a little bit different. You can only bake so much banana bread before getting a little bored, you know? That said, these banana bread cookies […]

I’m not sure why, but I haven’t really been baking much yet this year – hence the lack of new recipes on the blog. Last weekend, however, I had some friends coming over and I felt the urge to bake something new for them. Combine that with my realisation that in all of the years that […]

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 […]

Recipe: Chocolate Orange Cookies

Chocolate is delicious – we all know that. But one of the things I love most about chocolate is how you can combine it with so many other flavours and make it taste even better. I love experimenting with different brownie flavours because it’s pretty much impossible to get it wrong: add almost anything to a […]
