This recipe is a variation on a recipe from Jane at Jane’s Patisserie. Her original recipe is for Strawberry Oreo fudge, but I prefer Mint Oreos so decided to swap out the strawberry ones for mint 🙂

This is a quick, no-bake recipe. The hardest part is preparing the tin and then having the patience to let the mint Oreo fudge set before scoffing it!

Recipe | White chocolate blondies

A white chocolate alternative to traditional chocolate brownies. Gooey and rich: definitely for those with a sweet tooth!

I believe, technically, blondies don’t feature chocolate at all (vanilla is substituted for the chocolate). However, I couldn’t resist going for a white chocolate version.

I got this recipe from the BBC Good Food website. A few warnings from my experience: I had to go past the advised cooking time to get the middle to solidify and the end product was still very dense with a slightly “raw” appearance. The top cracked and it was difficult to cut the blondies cleanly. That said, they taste great. So as long as your priority is flavour, not appearance, I recommend you give this a try!

Recipe | Red velvet cake with white chocolate buttercream icing

Yesterday, in celebration of World Baking Day 2015 (who knew?!), I tried to make red velvet cake. For my first ever attempt, the cake turned out great – fluffy and delicious – but sadly, not very red.

As you can see from the pictures, the cake has a reddish tinge, but it’s not the deep red I was hoping for. This was entirely my fault. I didn’t read the recipe properly when buying red food dye and so didn’t buy enough – turns out you need A LOT.

Anyway, it still tastes great!
