Banana and Cinnamon Muffins

 These are my second attempt at muffins and I decided to go with a Hummingbird recipe, as they are famously American and are meant to be amazing with muffins.  The Banana and Cinnamon muffins in the first Hummingbird Recipe book simply sounded too good not to attempt so I got all the ingredients and started … Continue reading

Maple and Walnut Streusel Cake

Right. I got my brand-spanking new beautiful Hummingbird Bakery Recipe book, which meant: a lot of jumping up and down, countless hours spent pouring over the pictures trying to decide what to bake first; and five seconds of baking time to spill something on it.  I guess the sign of a good recipe book is … Continue reading

The Not-So-Spicy Spiced Pound Cake

This week, I decided to make the Spiced Pound cake as a gift to a friend (i.e. I needed another reason to bake and had to keep it simple because I’m chair/bed bound).  My funny ass ‘friend’ (we shall not name or identify them in any way due to the, ahem, horrendus joke about to … Continue reading
