The Best Banana Sundae Waffles with Decadent Chocolate Sauce

Mar 24

International Waffle Day is here and I am celebrating with my version of a waffle banana sundae, with sweet cinnamon waffles, butter fried bananas and an oozing chocolate sauce that you can drizzle over store bought ice cream. Decorated with sprinkles, chopped nuts, whipped cream and glace cherries, this is an incredibly easy recipe that will make anyone wish it was International Waffle Day every day! You will need a waffle machine to make this recipe.

St. Patrick’s Day Matcha Tea & Vanilla Baked Doughnuts

Mar 17

Celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day with my delicious matcha tea and vanilla green-themed doughnuts! These awesome treats are a healthier baked alternative to deep fried doughnuts and they don’t compromise on taste or texture. Finished with an easy icing glaze, you will have a blast decorating these with your favourite designs. You are going to need a doughnut tray which you can find fairly easily, and cheaply, online or in your local cook shop.

Proper Easy Beef & Pie

Mar 12

This easy slow cooked pie is well worth the wait with beef that is falling apart and packed with flavour. Served with potato, bacon, mushrooms and ale, it is topped with store bought puff pastry to mop up the juicy sauce. Find the recipe here.

Pop up Supper Club with Brother Marcus

Mar 10

Exciting news! I am running a pop up Supper Club with the guys at Brother Marcus, Balham.

Brother Marcus has quickly established itself as a firm favourite on the south London food scene since opening in early 2016. Opened by three talented pals with backgrounds in coffee, catering and street food, these guys have gone from strength to strength with an all day, relaxed cafe vibe.  Check out my full review of their big stuffed sandwiches from an earlier visit here.

They’re now hosting a series of Supper Clubs and from 6th-8th April I will be popping up with a  ‘Greatest Hits’ menu based on the most loved recipes from my 7 books. Everything will be served to share family style on communal tables and finished off with a glorious pot of Yorkshire Tea.

Tickets from £32pp are available to purchase here. Get them fast!
