Easy Batch-Bake Biscuits
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 20th March 2017
The Rangemaster tall side oven is a wonderful thing - the slight variation in heat from top to bottom is a boon, allowing you to crisp up the roasties at the top while the apple crumble bubbles away below. It’s great for cooking an entire meal but it really comes into its own when you want to batch cook things. Trays full of roasted vegetables, jacket potatoes to feed an army, lasagnes and all sorts of good, wholesome food can be racked up to eat now or to freeze and store later. Yes, all sorts of good, wholesome food…. or cookies. You can whip up an awful lot of cookies in a very short space of time with the tall oven. Even better, you can pre make the dough in all sorts of different flavours and have it stored in the freezer so that you can bring out mounds of freshly baked biscuits in the time it takes for the oven to heat + 10minutes.
Gingerbread Mocha Mousse Cake
Posted by Gill Bland Wednesday, 7th December 2016
Not everyone loves Christmas pudding and even if you do, it can be a bit much at the end ofa full Christmas Dinner. This dessert makes a lighter alternative and is quick and easy to assemble, especially if you make the biscuits ahead of time. It’s an ode to the Christmas drinks so popular in high street coffee shops at this time of year and who knows, maybe it’ll give you a nice caffeine boost at the end of the meal - just enough to make it through the washing up before you collapse in a heap.0 Comments
Sweet Potato Fruit Bread with homemade Nutella
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 21st November 2016
Fruit-bread toast and chocolate spread. That comes into the category of naughty but nice, right? Well, let me be your little ray of sunshine today (yeah, sunshine, remember that?) because this toasty goodness is actually at the healthy end of the spectrum.
The bread is made with sweet potato and chickpeas so it’s sweet but not too sweet, incredibly filling and full of slow release energy. The loaf is studded with prunes to give it little pockets of gooey goodness that also serve to up the fibre content and the crunchy roasted chickpeas on the top give it a lovely crunch to contrast the more solid texture of the inside.0 Comments

When researching for a baking idea that could be used to fill a spot in the lunchbox and the stomach at the start of a new term I read lots of interesting ideas about home-made sushi, bread on sticks and pretty bento boxes. Let’s be honest though, the first week is over and we’re into the long slog of the academic year and our resolve to be healthy and home-made is probably waning. What we really want is not a fiddly, pretty piece of sandwich art but something we can throw together with minimal washing up in the time it takes for someone else to find that tv programme and get it loaded and ready to go on iPlayer before we collapse in a heap and fall asleep before we’ve got through the ‘last time on’ section. What we really want and probably what the kids want is chocolate. Again. But we’re not quite ready to give in completely. Even for those without children though there’s something about this time of year that has that ‘start from the beginning’ feel to it. It’s almost like a second bash at new year. With that in mind I bring you a slightly healthier version of chocolate cake: the one fork, one bowl, 5 minute feelgood lunchbox muffins. These muffins enable you to create that ‘made with love’ moment for the lunchbox but without loading it with sugar and without loading yourself with washing up.0 Comments
Raspberry Chocolate Puddle Crumble Flapjack
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 22nd August 2016
The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens and this year’s crop of bakers are ready to do battle with flour and eggs. There’s a garden designer, a pastor, a PE teacher and an aerospace engineer. Who will rise (pun intended) to the top and who will sink like one of my Victoria sponges?0 Comments
Earl Grey & Lemon Teabread
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 27th June 2016
Anyone for tea and tennis? Wimbledon is upon us once again and with it the excuse to lounge around in the sun eating strawberries and drinking G&Ts. In our dreams. Sadly, we know that the great British summertime can sometimes be less that sweltering and we can’t all write off an afternoon to a jug of Pimms. This recipe harnesses the joy of a traditional British pastime and a hint of summer but is also easy to take to work or nibble whilst watching the clouds roll over.

P-P-Pick Up A Pumpkin
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 26th October 2015
I don’t buy into the idea of celebrating ghouls and ghost-type things for Halloween, but I’m more than happy to embrace the recent influx of pumpkin-based products to our supermarkets. In fact, in the interests of honesty, I should tell you that I have used a large amount of the UK’s pumpkin supplies in aborted attempts to make pumpkin-filled treats.0 Comments
