When I tell you this Christmas cake is simple to make, I mean super duper simple. It takes minutes to put together, doesn’t need to be made in advance or soaked in brandy, and is deliciously soft and moist. You can make this Christmas Cake the day you need it, and can serve it for afternoon tea. It doesn’t need any cover ups of marzipan, fondant icing or any fancy topping.
We all know summer brings with it the desire to keep fit and healthy – but making healthy snack choices isn’t always easy. With this in mind, Snowflake has rounded up some great healthy snack solutions. From healthy nuts and seeds to going light on sugar, snacking on homemade bakes means you can still indulge without sacrificing texture and flavour.
There is a quaint charm and feeling of bye gone years in a freshly baked rustic loaf smothered with rich creamy butter. It somehow reminds me of grandmas baking in beautiful liberty print aprons, and sipping tea from fine bone china teacups. This Date and Walnut loaf is a perfect teatime treat for a Sunday mid afternoon nibble with its nutty sweet flavours.

Ooh….la….la…. I have just returned from a few beautiful days in Paris, and as I love anything French, I thought I would make these crisp wafer thin Almond Tuiles to serve with my Lemon Curd Mascarpone Mousse. The word “tuiles”, French for “tile” is derived from their traditional curved shape similar to that of roof tiles in France.
