Raspberry and Peach Scones

raspberry and peach scones

I was really stuck the other weekend, because I was having a friend over in the morning and I really wanted to bake something that was breakfast-y, but I had no idea what to make! I didn’t want to make cookies, because I love cookies, but heck, we really shouldn’t be eating them for breakfast. I didn’t have the time for anything like croissants, and I considered some flavoured brioche Continue Reading →

Peanut Butter Cup Tart

Peanut Butter Cup Tart | Butter Baking

Hello! I hope you all are having a lovely week. I’m so excited to be sharing this recipe with you today! I made this at work a couple of weekends ago with no intentions of sharing it on here. I sort of winged the recipe and didn’t know if it would be nicely balanced, or actually taste like a peanut butter cup at all. That was until I stole a slice Continue Reading →

Flourless Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Flourless Chocolate Fudge Brownies | Butter Baking

I love chocolate brownies, particularly when they’re the melt-in-your-mouth fudgy kind. And these definitely hit that mark. This recipe was actually adapted from one of my favourite tarts – this Oreo dream tart. The baked truffle filling is smooth and silky, luscious, melt-in-your-mouth delicious and probably one of my favourite things to eat. So I decided to bake it, without a tart shell. It went from truffle tart filling to Continue Reading →

Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten and Dairy Free)

You may remember that I posted some months ago that I was having problems with the photos in my pre-2012 blog posts as I had deleted my original wordpress.com blog, and the old photos were all linked into it (so annoying!!!). I’m still, very slowly (sorry!), making my way through them and putting them back in. Along the way, I’ve found some of my favourite recipes that I’ve decided need Continue Reading →

Berry and Lime Panna Cotta Tart

It’s getting warmer and warmer outside here in Melbourne, and I’m so excited to see berries in the shops and to be able to bake with summer fruit again! As much as I love a beautiful, homemade apple pie, the bleak autumn and winter months where the only fruit on offer are dull-coloured apples or pears really stifle my baking creativity. Spring really makes me want to rip open the Continue Reading →

Coffee and Hazelnut Dacquoise

Coffee and Hazelnut Dacquoise | Butter Baking

My grandmother turned 80 a couple of months ago, and in celebration, I made her a cake. 80 is such an amazing milestone, and is worthy of a decadent torte. There’s no sponge here! This very french cake is made up of layers of hazelnut meringue, called dacquoise, and a coffee creme mousseline (which is essentially a buttercream made from pastry cream and butter). The result is crunchy yet chewy, nutty Continue Reading →

Healthy Chocolate Raspberry Brownies with Video [Gluten Free and Dairy Free]

gf brownies

I can imagine that you just read that headline and went “What?!”. Well. These brownies are healthy, and packed full of protein. They have no gluten, no grains, no dairy, no refined sugar and can be easily made vegan (replace the eggs with flax eggs!). And they are fudgy, moist (sorry!), chocolatey and just plain yummy. Their secret ingredient is beans. I’ve made bean brownies a couple of times on the blog Continue Reading →

Healthy Two-Ingredient Pancakes [Free of Gluten, Dairy and Added Sugar]

easy banana pancakes

As much as I love baking desserts, I dislike cooking. It’s weird, because I love eating, I’m quick and efficient in the kitchen, I’m good with flavour combinations and can very easily whip up a nice lunch or dinner with whatever is in the fridge (and sometimes, after a busy week, it’s pretty bare in there). The thing is, I just cannot be bothered. I don’t care enough about eating Continue Reading →
