20 Flavoursome Bakes


Some things are just meant to be together – Ant & Dec, gin & tonic, strawberries & Wimbledon. This month’s baking round-up from Helen at Casa Costello pays homage to the wonderful taste combinations that food bloggers have been baking with recently. There are some traditional pairings and some unusual ideas that are pure genius …

perfect partnerships

From top left moving around clockwise:

Rhubarb & marzipan cake from Fab Food For All, which managed not only to look stunning but also be frugal too.

Mango & lime friands by Eat Like A Girl – there are even two versions of this recipe available including a Dairy Free Option.

Raspberry & white chocolate traybake from A Mummy Too – a classical taste combination that works perfectly.

Not forgetting the savoury bakes, we have roasted aubergine & ricotta tart from Amuse Your Bouche.

Small and dainty but perfectly matched, lemon curd & Greek yoghurt Eton mess tarts by Belleau Kitchen.

Sweet Coconut with a tang of citrus, marmalade coconut semolina cake by Recipes From A Pantry.

Banana cake with a maple frosting from SuperGolden Bakes – Pure comfort food.

Raspberry caramel cake from Annie’s Noms. This is described as a ‘simple cake that is sure to please’ – I agree!

Taking inspiration from yoghurt flavours, Dolly Bakes brings apricot & honey bundtlettes.

And who could resist the combination of peanut butter & Nutella blondies from Taming Twins.


And there’s more …

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!
