My fab friend @evakosmasflores’ book, #FirstWeEat is out today! I made the carrot skillet pizza with an AMAZING roasted garlic & Parmesan sauce (a bit like a pimped-up garlic bread) from her book to celebrate 😄🎉. Congrats, Eva 💕💕💕. Recipe on my blog - link in profile 🙌🏼🍕🥕
BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE MUFFINS // well apparently it’s going to snow AGAIN today. Come on Spring I’m so ready for you 😭🌷. I get a bit fed up of eating winter fruit so I always have some #essentialWaitrose frozen blueberries on hand for putting into pancakes/on porridge/in muffins in the colder months. These muffins are taken up a notch by piping a blob of cheesecake mixture into the centre pre-bake 😍. You can find the recipe on @waitrose website, link in my profile. Happy weekend everyone ☺️💕
SWEET POTATO NACHOS // When it comes down to the last couple weeks of term I’m usually maintaining a maximum stress level thanks to coursework deadlines/presentations/meetings which ALWAYS seem to all come at once 🤦🏼♀️. It’s at these times that I really just need easy dinners - hello pasta pesto with broccoli - but my NEW thing is nachos! Roast some veg (my fave is 🍠), cook a can of beans with spices, layer onto tortilla chips with cheese (all #essentialWaitrose ingredients 🙌🏼) & bake until melty. Oh and the leftovers reheat perfectly too 🌝. You can check out @waitrose Instagram stories to see the step-by-step breakdown of these ones and find the full recipe on their site - link in my profile🌞🧀🍠. (P.S. Hmu in the comments if you have other fave nacho toppings pls 🙏🏼, I have one week left before Easter holidays plus a whole lotta cheese & stress to fuel the nacho-making)
YORKSHIRE PUDDING PIZZA 🍕// made this for my birthday dinner and promised to write up the recipe for those who asked so here it is - recipe link in my profile! If you don’t already know what a Yorkshire pud is, it’s basically crepe batter baked into puffy little cups usually using a muffin tin or something similar. They’re akin to popovers (for anyone in the US) or Dutch baby pancakes 🥞. Usually they’re an *essential* part of a Sunday roast but here I’ve gone and filled a giant one with pizza toppings because when did cheese ever NOT improve something. Bonus cos it’s actually a lot quicker than making real pizza so you should maaaaybe give it a go 😉🤷🏼♀️
Wore my pink cords & a pink jumper to brunch at @northstarcoffeeshop today so HAD to get the rhubarb French toast to match 💁🏼♀️💕🥖
I drunk made the @alisoneroman cookie dough last weekend and only put 100g chocolate in it 😭 then left it in the fridge all week because I was preoccupied by my bday pancakes. Finally baked them today though and they still gooood 🙋🏼♀️ but I do wish they had that missing 68g of choc chips ☹️. Does drunk cooking/baking ever go right!?
FIRST PANCAKES OF THE DAY // cornbread pancakes to kick off the best collab ever: my bday ft. Pancake day 🎉 (recipe is in my insta stores saved to my profile). 🥞🥞🥞 P.S. I also have the ‘banana pancakes for 1’ in the stories saved to my profile 🙏🏼💕
VEGAN MOLTEN CHOC CAKES FOR 2 (recipe link in profile) // I knooow that molten choc cakes are the bait dessert for v-day but umm hello that’s cos they’re delicious (and one of my all time favourite desserts). This vegan-ised version was requested by a follower a few months ago and I’ve perfected it just in time for Valentine’s! I mean if you’re not into the v-day thing, just eat both urself 🤷🏼♀️💕😘
OKAY so my birthday next week is ON THE SAME DAY AS PANCAKE DAY. Yes it’s true, I’m going to officially fulfil my destiny to be a birthday pancake queen 👸🏼🥞. My plan is to eat many different types of pancake all day but the biggest question is what will my birthday CAKE be?? Should I go the classic route of a crêpe cake OR a buttermilk-blueberry layer cake with maple frosting OR something else??? Gimme your best PANCAKE THEMED CAKE IDEAS 🧠🗣🥞
30 MINUTE NUTELLA COOKIES (adapted from @food52) - needed a quick dessert to mix up last night and ended up with these chewy dudes 😛. Recipe below (gram measurements in the comments)
• 3/4 cup Nutella • 1/4 cup almond butter
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1 egg
• 3 tbsp cocoa powder
• 1/2 cup plain flour
• 1 tsp baking soda
• Maldon salt for sprinkling
🍪Mix Nutella, almond butter, sugar, salt and egg in a large bowl until smooth. 🍪Mix in the flour, cocoa, baking soda well.
🍪Chill dough for 10 minutes - meanwhile preheat oven to 350F (180 C). 🍪Scoop heaped tablespoons of dough, roll into balls, place on baking tray lined with baking paper (these spread a lot so space a few cm apart). 👌🏼Sprinkle with Maldon salt 🍪Bake for 8-10 minutes until dry on top and crackly.
