Malteser Chocolate Loaf Cake

If you have a school or office bake sale to bake for, what better than a Malteser Chocolate Loaf Cake? It’s a rich chocolate cake with Maltesers inside the cake adding a bit of crunch and covering the top too. Strawberry pieces add a flash of colour and a lovely fresh contrast in flavour and […]

Easy unicorn cake

Easy Unicorn Cake

Birthday party season is here again for me (my children have birthdays one after the other in February and March!) and this year I made the rookie mistake of showing my younger daughter a unicorn cake I had seen on Pinterest.

Slow Cooker Blueberry Banana Bread
