So as not to induce festive overload, we’ve tried to steer clear of too many Christmassy posts this week, and it actually wasn’t that difficult. Although many of you are getting into the seasonal baking and goodies, there’s still plenty of variety out there in the UK food blogosphere.
First up, I just couldn’t resist these peppermint marshmallows from Katie Cakes. They are just so pretty and look amazing bobbing around in the mugs of hot chocolate. I am definitely going to add these to my ever-growing list of things to make!
How often do you fancy a cake but can’t be bothered with the hassle of putting the oven on, then waiting ages for it to cook? Well this jam and coconut microwave bundt cake from Anne’s Kitchen could be the perfect cake for you. I’ve not seen microwave bundt pans before but they sound like a pretty good idea, especially if you can pick one up for £1 like Anne did!
Hands up who loves chocolate brownies? *Raises both hands high* Well then, we have treat for you with not one, but two yummy-looking brownie recipes this week. The first are chocolate, rum and hazlenut brownies from breakfast by the sea – they look deliciously moist. Secondly, we have super easy Nutella brownies from Flick of the Whisk. With just a few ingredients, these chocolate brownies really do look super easy.
I know I said I was steering clear of Christmas, but I couldn’t miss out these two festive beauties! Firstly we have a Christmas cake from Gluten Free & Gorgeous that is perfect for everyone as it is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and vegan. The second festive recipe I came across this week was these little Christmas Sliders from She Cooks, She Eats. They would be a perfect way to use up that leftover turkey on Boxing Day.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can get a bit dull, can’t it? Well, perhaps not if you make your own museli using this recipe from Awaken your taste buds. This is a great recipe to get you started, then you can experiment and add loads of things you love – make a different version every day!
Do you eat rabbit? This is the question that Adam is asking over on The British Menu. Is it a fantastic free range meat, or can’t you get past the ‘cute’ image that rabbits seem to have? Pop by and let Adam know what you think.
Anyone for a little sunshine to brighten these chilly winter days? How about some California Dreaming? This post from Extra Relish certainly brightened my day with wonderful photos and a delicious recipe for Pistachio Shortbread Biscuits.
Lastly this week, I leave you with a video I found over on Burger Anarchy. It speaks for itself but I’ll tell you that it involves meat, a crock pot and plenty of broth! Go and watch it!
That’s all for this week. Do you fancy letting us know about your favourite blog posts one week? Drop me a line if you do.
