Deliciously gooey, sweet and oatilicious!

So…it has been a while since i’ve even posted anything on here!  A combination and busy bee antics and needing motivation I think!  Anyway, I went to my hairdressers the other day and she asked me about the blog, said how much she liked it and that she’d been recommending it, and I thought ‘Get your butt in gear Zoe…get a post on’.  So I have!!  Rummaging in my baking pastry cabinet I realised I had some deliciously sweet Marshmallow Fluff that needing using up and that is why this recipe came about.  I started googling alternatives to just making whoopie pies (which is the key use in my Hummingbird Book) and found a great Pinterest page full of calorific, heart-attack inducing recipes.  This one stood out as it includes peanut butter…and you know how much I LOVE peanut butter.  I have included the website here but I think I made mine more filled and chose not to add the sea salt on top.  Let me know what you think!! Enjoy and apologies for being so aloof :) Continue reading »

PBJ Muffins & Spiced Apple Muffins – 1 batch…2 recipes

A single batch divided beautifully in to 2 tasty flavours.  A spiced fruity one and a peanut butter and jam filled delight! Mmmmm!

Happy New Year peeps!  It’s been a while I know but apart from being manically busy over the festive period, it’s been a rather rushed and non-stop return to work.  But 2 weeks in to 2015 schooling and I’ve found a few moments to jot down the recent recipe in the ZoBird’s house.  The basis for this bake is from a recipe book I got a long time ago – about 10 years in fact and is called Muffins – Fast and Fantastic 3rd Edition…I really must find the first 2 editions as these are fail safe recipes and are easily adaptable.  With that in mind I wanted to make some muffins that would keep everyone in the house and office happy.  Grant doesn’t like peanut butter…weird I know, whilst Lucy in the office dislikes fruit in cakes.  So I found an oatmeal muffin recipe…upped the numbers a fraction and in turn made 2 separate batches from one recipe.  This works a treat with cupcakes too…especially if you have a group of people who can’t agree on one baked goods flavours :)

Perfectly crumblicious!

A deliciously simple pudding to make when it’s cold outside and to be honest it’s not like we’re reaching warm temperatures these days!  This is super quick and can be served with ice cream or custard.  Give it a whirl and add your own twists.  This can be full of many flavour combos; seasonal fruit like blackberries, blackcurrants, rhubarb or gooseberries! Yummytastic!  Also replace the wholemeal flour to white if you’d prefer, and light brown to white sugar.  Just taste as you go, seen as the more bitter fruits will need extra sugar! (more…)
