 My position on PR enquiries

Over the time I have been writing the blog, I have come to value the enjoyment it gives me, and also the freedom I have to try new things and to do what I want, when I want. 

I have also watched blogs I love sadly, in my opinion, change to provide an awful reader experience due to the introduction of monetisation and advertising.

On that basis, it might help to know that I have now taken a conscious decision not to accept anything for review or for PR purposes. I will also not run adverts on this blog.

So what I use and then refer to in posts is what I have bought and used myself. Any opinion I express is honestly held, and volunteered in the spirit that if I'm excited enough to like something, then other baking enthusiasts out there might, too! Conversely, if I have had trouble with something, you might like to know what happened, and what I think about it.

For the eagle eyed amongst you, on the one occasion in the past that I was provided something free for a post (a copy of 'Pure Vanilla' by Shauna Server), I said so clearly. 

I will also delete - and have - any comments left on the blog that I think constitute advertising.

With that out of the way, why don't you grab a cuppa, pull up a chair, and explore my baking world a bit more?

Hope you enjoy your visit!


  1. Hi Susie! I had a go at making your pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting today and they are delishhh! I posted on my blog about them just now (

    1. Hi Emma - wow, just had a quick look and they are fab! Glad you liked the recipe. :)

  2. Hi Sue, I'm not sure if you were aware that your lovely husband smuggled out a slice of your limoncello cake however I must say I applaud him for doing so. OMG, it was delicious (he even presented me with a fork and napkin to!!) I've had the pleasure of sampling some of your masterpieces in the past but I must say this one tops them all. Here's to more smuggling and I hope to return the gesture sometime soon!

    1. Hi Alison, Yes, I was, and I'm on,y sorry he didn't let you have a piece with the sugar flowers on ( they added a nice little crunch). Anyway I'm really glad you enjoyed it and thanks so much for letting me know! :)

Dark Indulgent Chocolate and Walnut Brownies for the Weekly Bake Off

It's been a great couple of weeks in the Bake Off , as Amy has chosen some fantastic chocolate recipes from Mary Berry's 100 Cakes and Bakes . Although I made last week's American Chocolate Ripple Cheesecake, I didn't enter it. Not because it was a disaster (it was incredibly delicious though very rich - Josh has been able to eek it out all week as he only needs a little piece to get his daily chocolate fix!), but I simply ran out of time. So this week, I decided to get my skates on and make the bake early. Particularly as it's brownies. Yes. Brownies. Those dark, fudgey, chocolatey little bites of heaven. But for me, this week was an experiment. You see, I already have a fantastic brownie recipe . It's been made countless times and been played around with to give an endless variety of treats. (Have I ever mentioned Maya Gold in brownies? Yes? Well I'll have to post about them someday soon because they are amazing - like some sort of out of body exp

Farmhouse Orange Victoria Sandwich for the Weekly Bake Off

I was really pleased with Amy's selection for this week's Bake Off - Mary Berry's Ultimate Cake Book was the first Baking book I bought, back in 1995 (it was first published in 1994 and by the time I bought a copy it was already on its eighth reprint). The very first recipe I did was her small all in one Victoria Sandwich, and consequently the very first cake tins I purchased were Silverwood 7" sandwich tins. They have seen many, many outings over the years, by way of this cake and the Sunday Best Chocolate Fudge Cake, also from the same book. I still have them and used them for this recipe. Interestingly, in flicking through 'Ultimate Cake Book', I caught sight of an Orange Victoria Sandwich, which is practically the same recipe as this one (size aside), with the exception of the filling, where Mary instructed that it should be 'about 4 tablespoons of orange mamalade and a little caster sugar'. Hmm, not sure about that one. I certainly loved the

Devil's Food Cupcakes

  It's been a while since I blogged - or I suppose made - anything that was specifically designed to appeal to my boys. I felt I was starting to neglect them, so I decided to rectify that. Chocolate is usually a sure fire hit in that regard.     These little cakes certainly fulfilled that part of the brief, as the sponge is dark and intense, and richly chocolatey. The frosting is a US-style 7 minute frosting and is very similar to the marshmallow filling in the teacakes I blogged recently. So, it is very, very sweet.    While I seem to have developed an incredibly sweet tooth since falling pregnant with Sam, I must admit, I found it a little much, and given that I had piped big swirls of frosting, ended up scooping about half back off in order to eat a cupcake.        Devil's Food Cupcakes   Ingredients (makes 12)   125g plain flour 30g cocoa powder 1/2 tspn bicarbonate of soda 1/8 tspn salt 90g softened unsalted butter 125g golden
