Speculoos Chocolate Chip Cookies

Speculoos Chocolate Chip Cookies | Butter Baking

I made me you cookies today. Speculoos chocolate chip cookies. I’m sure you’ve heard of Speculoos before? Or Cookie Butter, or Biscoff, as it’s sometimes known? Speculoos is a Danish spiced cookie/biscuit. The biscuit’s so good they made it into a spread, kind of like peanut butter, only way better. The spread is so good I often find myself standing in the kitchen, leaning against the counter, with a spoon Continue Reading →

Persian Love Cake (GF)

You may remember that I shared a Chocolate Persian Love Cake recipe with you a few weeks ago? Well, I was so intrigued by the process of making that cake, and I enjoyed the mousse-like filling and crunchy base of the Chocolate version so much, that I thought I had better get to making an original Persian love cake. It’s such a lovely dessert, and so simple to put together! Continue Reading →

It was Mr Man’s big three-o a few weeks ago. We went out for dinner, had drinks with friends, celebrated with family and I, of course, made him a cake (actually, I made him two cakes, but this was the main cake, the on-the-birthday-day cake). I really enjoy making custom layer cakes and decorating them for clients, but my favourite part about having a family occasion or making a cake for Continue Reading →

Coffee, Salted Caramel and Macadamia Ice Cream

Coffee, Salted Caramel and Macadamia Ice Cream | Butter Baking

I haven’t failed to notice that I’ve been sharing a lot of cake and tart and cake recipes lately, so today I’ve got something a little different for you – ice cream! I’m super sad to report that I think our summer/warm weather is officially over. It’s time for me to stop living in denial, ditch my ballet flats and face the fact that it is definitely boot weather already. Continue Reading →

Chocolate Persian Love Cake (GF)

Chocolate persian love cake

Persian Love Cake has been on my “to bake” list for a while now. If you haven’t made a Persian Love Cake before, you start by crumbling most of the ingredients together and pressing half of them into a cake tin as the base. Then you add eggs and yogurt to the rest of the crumble and that makes your cake batter that you pour on top of the base. Continue Reading →

Healthy Apple and Almond Cake (GF)

healthy apple cake

I love me and apple cake, an apple pie, an apple tart, or an apple pastry. Apple baking is the best kind of baking. It is delicious baking, it is cinnamon-scented, house-warming baking, it’s cosy, nostalgic, autumn baking. So when I see an apple recipe, I tend to jump on it. What particularly appealed to me about this recipe is that fact that it is healthy! And gluten free, and dairy Continue Reading →

Fudgy Chocolate Mousse Gateau

Fudgy Chocolate Mousse Cake | Butter Baking

As much as I enjoy making and frosting traditional layer cakes, they’re not really something I’m into eating. This, however, well this I am into eating. It’s two layers of flourless chocolate fudge cake alternated with luscious chocolate mousse. The whole thing is assembled inside a cake ring so you can see the layers from the outside. Then it’s topped with rich milk chocolate ganache, raspberries and other delicious bits. Man, Continue Reading →

Coconut, Raspberry and Mango Panna Cotta Tart

Panna cotta tart

It is autumn here already. Where does the time go?! Although the cooler season has officially begun, the sunshine, the plethora of fruit and the warm days that summer bring are still lingering. Which means I have no choice but to make the most of the last of the summer bounty by baking with it! And what better way to celebrate summer fruit than to throw it all on top of a Continue Reading →
