Chelsea Buns- #100bakeschallenge Paul Hollywood’s Recipe.
A Chelsea Bun is a rich yeasted bun flavoured with citrus zest, dried fruit and cinnamon, dusted with sugar and then glazed with a sticky topping, such as warm apricot jam.

Paul Hollywood’s Iced Lemon Whitby Buns #100bakeschallenge no 78.
I don’t know about you, but as soon as I see a recipe has yeast in it, I have this feeling of absolute dread! I’ve never got the results I want from making something involving yeast. Or I can’t handle the dough properly as my hands are always far too hot and sticky- I blame…
Sultana, Apricot and Marzipan Loaf Cake

January 6th 2022 Did you know that January 6th is #NationalShortbreadDay? I didn’t until I got a My Legoman Mostly Foodie Days of Calendar for my kitchen wall. Or rather, its framed but still on the floor in my office until I can move pictures around in my kitchen and have the space to put…
