Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (17)


This week Emily from A Mummy Too was going to bring you her favourite posts, but she has a nasty eye infection so go and wish her well and she’ll be back another week with her round up. So, I have jumped in as a last minute substitute and get to share ten of my favourite posts from the UK food blogging community from the past week.

I have to admit, there is a cakey bias again – sorry, I am just drawn to cake! The more I try to cut back on eating cake, the more I read about it (and dream about it, and look at recipes for it…). Anyway, grab yourself a coffee and a piece of cake and enjoy this week’s Ten at Ten round up.

First up someone tweeted me a link to these rather interesting looking wasabi and white chocolate cupcakes from Katie Cakes. I’ve added chilli to chocolate cakes before but never wasabi. I love unusual flavour combinations, so something definitely worth trying.

Be prepared for a serious cake overload in this next post! You may have come across the Clandestine Cake Club, which is rapidly sweeping the nation at the moment, with clubs popping up all over the place. The Leicester CCC recently held a Rock and Roll themed event and these are the amazing cakes they all made.

Taking a short break from cake, Sharmee from TravelEat tweeted me a link to a Dim Sum master class that she attended at Ping Pong. It certainly sounds like a lot of fun!

And we’re back to cake with another twitter suggestion – a yummy looking Earl Grey and Rose Water Bundt Cake from Cake and Feminism. Laura, who made the cake, assures me it was as delicious as it looks and she has eaten it all. Next time Laura, send some this way!

My children are going crazy for raspberries at the moment so I was excited to find this recipe for Raspberry Tiramisu over on This is Life. I’m sure the good weather is just around the corner (crosses fingers) and this would make the perfect pud after a family meal.

I love the idea of foraging for food, but haven’t tried it much myself – I’m always worried I’ll end up poisoning us all! But Charlie from Eggs On The Roof certainly knows what she’s talking about and guides us along the shoreline looking for foraged goodies – in particular, wild garlic. A wonderful post with amazing photos.

If I’m not eating cake, then chances are I’ll have moved onto the chocolate! If you’re a chocoholic like me, then you will be drooling over this meal that Judith from Mostly about Chocolate had at an event hosted by Lindt. The  braised chilli chocolate beef cheek with celeriac mask and glazed beetroot looks especially delicious.

I couldn’t resist these chocolate and orange biscuits from Time to Cook – Online as they just look so good. I love how they are so simple, yet so pretty and chocolate and orange is always a winning combination. In fact, I think I might make some today!

Who remembers that gloopy, congealed chicken supreme that you used to get in a tin? Maybe it’s still around, but this recipe for chicken supreme from The lone gourmet looks way better! It only uses a few ingredients and is super quick to make – exactly my kind of meal!

And lastly, how about we finish off with some… cake! I have a real thing for lavender – love the smell and taste, so these lavender scented madeleines from Blue Kitchen Bakes really appealed. Now I’ve learnt to make lavender tea, everything will be infused with it!

That’s all for this week. Thanks to @nellyscupcakes, @BlueKitchenBake, Jen_MMurphyHair and @SharmeeMavadia for tweeting me blog post suggestions. See you again next week.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

Got it!
