Recipe: Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins

First recipe of 2020! Last week, I posted my Bake It List with ten things I definitely want to try baking this year. At first, I planned on putting these muffins on that list as well, but I refrained in the end since the list is mostly meant for trying new things, and I’ve made […]

Cinnamon Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love experimenting with cookies. I’ve got my basic cookie recipe down by now, so that makes it very easy to just try different flavours and discover new favourites. A few weeks ago, I made these chocolate chips cookies with cinnamon and pecan nuts. I was really in the mood for something autumnal, so I […]

Recipe: French Madeleines

Nearly every year, my parents and I go on holiday to the same small village on the coast of Normandy, France: Anneville-sur-Mer (once chosen for its name). This year, we went in the first half of September and it was as wonderful as ever! It’s one of my favourite places to be: in just a […]

Rustic Blueberry Pie

I wasn’t planning on baking a blueberry pie at all, but then the fresh blueberries were on sale at my supermarket and I “accidentally” bought over half a kilo of them. Only when I got home did I wonder what on earth I was going to do with half a kilo of blueberries. The answer […]

Lemon and Elderflower Drizzle Cake

Summer is the perfect time for fruity flavours! I love lemon all year round, but there’s something about the summer that makes me love it just that little bit more. Last week, I felt like baking something lemony and my mind went to a drizzle cake straightaway. A lemon drizzle cake is delicious, but I […]

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies

I first became aware of the existence of chocolate-covered strawberry brownies when my friend Inge from Of Wonderland shared a picture of them on Twitter. They lookedΒ amazing and when I “had” to bake something for my best friend’s birthday party later that week, I knew exactly what I was going to bake. Brownies are the […]

Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

Who doesn’t love a good muffin? I used to make them all the time and I was under the impression this was still one of my most-baked things, but apparently the last time I baked muffins was in June! So, high time for another muffin recipe. My supermarket had a sale on blueberries last week […]

Cinnamon and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

The cookie urge got me again! I actually made these cinnamon and white chocolate chip cookies a little while back already, but I didn’t get around to writing up the recipe before now because it’s been a busy month. I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month and my goal is to write 30,000 words on […]

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes, I just suddenly get a very strong urge to bake cookies. This only happens with cookies, strangely enough. Never with muffins, pies, cakes… No idea what that’s about, but when it happens, I just roll with it. A few weeks ago on a Friday, I got the Cookie Urge again while I was at […]

The Macaron Saga – Part 4: SUCCESS (with recipe!)

I did it, guys! My holy grail, my unicorn of baking, has been captured. IΒ finally managed to make a near-perfect macaron (over 20 of them actually)! After five attempts (divided over about as many years) that ended in differing degrees of failure, I can finally say that I have baked a successful macaron – and […]
