50 things … to bake this summer


To add to our ever growing bank of fab recipe ideas, this month we’re setting another challenge where two of the best budding bakers will win a selection of products from the brand new Morphy Richards food preparation range.

Our friends at Morphy Richards have recently launched a colourful new range of food preparation kitchen products which includes everything from hand blenders to food choppers. The Accents Range is available in a selection of different colours including red, cyan, yellow and cream, not only do they produce great tasting food, they’ll also look great in your kitchen! Visit www.morphyrichards.co.uk to find out more about the full range. What’s more, Morphy Richards is giving everyone the chance to save 25% on items in the food preparation range, simply add the promotional code FP10025 at the checkout on the Morphy website.

According to the calendar, it’s officially British Summertime… but as the weather is letting us down spectacularly, Foodies100 and Morphy Richards is appealing for the best summer baking recipes, so at least our tastebuds can experience the delights of delicious seasonal cakes, biscuits and desserts.

We’re not just asking for entries from Foodies 100 members, this competition is open to everybody! In fact, we’re going to have a prize for the best blogger that submits a delicious recipe and the same prize for a non-blogger too.

At the end of the competition a panel of judges from Morphy will have the difficult job of reviewing all the recipes and selecting the winners, who will  both win a set of food preparation products from Morphy Richards’ new range. The judges will be looking at originality, flair and presentation! Even if you think your favourite bake wouldn’t stand a chance, you never know, send us the details!

Morphy Richards will also be selecting some of their favourites to appear on their website over the summer months so be sure that the recipe is your own fine work and you’re able to send us photography!

  1. I would like to enter my store cupboard Easy Peasy Ginger Cake!


    The beauty of the recipe is that all the ingredients are non perishable and it literally is as easy to make as bung it all in the food processor or bowl, mix and bake.

    Bake it in a bundt tin to look pretty or as a tray bake.

    Because it does not contain eggs or butter it is suitable for vegans and anyone with diary or egg allergies. Also this makes it far cheaper to make than a cake using free range eggs!

  2. I’m not a blogger so I’ve emailed you my recipe for my Strawberry Shortcake Great British Olympic Meringue

  3. I would like to enter my delightfully exuberant and delicious Vanilla, Strawberry & Rose Victoria Sponge Cake…..the weather may be bad, but if this cake graced your summer tea time table and I am sure that it would bring smiles to all who were lucky enough to have a slice!

    The rain may still be here, but, there are STILL roses and lavender to be had, and these two fragrant flowers adorn the cake for a spectacular finishing flourish…….plus, the vanilla Victoria Sandwich Sponge Cake is layered with home-made Strawberry Jam and is topped with pink rose water icing….. decadent with a touch of FLORAL FUN!

    I am proud to say that the eggs used in this cake came from my own free-range hens, and as keeping chickens in back gardens is SO popular now, I am sure there will be lots of hen keepers who would love to showcase their home-grown eggs in a BIG cake like this!

    SO here is my link to the cake in question, Vanilla, Strawberry & Rose Victoria Sponge Cake……..it was made for my First Year Blog Birthday and has been my MOST popular post and recipe to date!


  4. My recipe is a really easy Jubilee Sponge Traybake which you could decorate whichever way you like. I used fresh British berries to top mine but you could ice it with buttercream or glace icing and use edible flowers, it is a fab cake for cake stalls and kids parties too.

    I love it because it is a “bung it all in and mix” cake which is so easy and quick to prepare and almost foolproof.

    Here’s the link:


  5. I would like to enter my summer pudding cupcakes 366recipechallenge.planetsquirrel.co.uk/2012/07/lil-ms-squirrels-summer-pudding-cupcakes.html

  6. My summery bake are these Strawberry & Pistachio Financiers (http://www.patisseriemakesperfect.co.uk/strawberry-pistachio-financiers/)

    They are the perfect summery treat, decorated with glazed strawberries or strawberries can be added to the batter before baking.

    These would be perfect in a romantic picnic basket served with a glass or two of champagne.

    Made in mini bundt tins, they would look great served at a garden party or a birthday buffet for a special little girl.

    The other great thing about these financiers is that they are a great way to use up leftover egg whites, which is something I always have around the kitchen.

    Delicate and rich with pistachio, I think you’ll love these.

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 bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
