Cherry, Lemon & Coconut Muffins

I saw a lovely recipe on My Favourite Pastime for a muffin with glace cherries, lemon and coconut.  They looked great and I love all those ingredients, so I decided I should make them and see how they turn out. Muffins are so easy to make, just mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet […]

Almond & Coconut Cake

I am an avid viewer of very many Youtube channels, amongst them is Home Cooking Adventure and I saw a recipe on there for this recipe.  An Almond cake with a wonderful coconut and mascarpone cheese with double cream, white chocolate and coconut.  I then did a search for similar recipes and found quite a […]

Lazy Daisy Cake

Trawling through the internet a couple of weeks ago I came across something called Lazy Daisy Cake.  It looked rather interesting and from what I have been able to glean dates from the 1930s or 1940s. It is popular in Canada and some parts of the USA.  I had never heard of it, but I […]


Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins are not something I have encountered before.  But my sister Margaret, of Ottawa, suggested them so I imagine she rather enjoys them.  I did some research on the internet and looked at a few videos.  It seems that there are many variations of these muffins, but the constant is grated carrot and […]

English Madeleines

English Madeleines are what, years ago when I was a child, were known in England as Madeleines.  That single word name has been assigned, it seems, to the little French cake which is baked in a scallop shaped mould or tray.  But English Madeleines, as I shall call them, though it sticks in my clack […]


Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake

I just love coconut, so when I found a recipe for Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake on Allrecipes I just had to try it. A lovely light cake, with some thin icing brushed over the top for more coconut to be sprinkled over is simply wonderful. The recipe is quite easy to follow and doesn’t use a […]


Coconut & Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had an idea for some muffins, based on my home made bounty bars from a few months ago. So I needed chocolate, coconut and condensed milk.  Then it was a question of how much of each and how to combine them into a muffin mix. I think I came up with quite a good […]


Coconut and Raspberry Jam Financiers

I decided to get inventive with financiers today.  Taking a fairly basic recipe and experimenting with some raspberry jam and some sweetened, shredded, coconut.  This is my third time making financiers, and I decided not to use trimoline, but just icing sugar as the main sweetener.   Having made the batter and allowed it to […]

Anzac Biscuits

I decided on a biscuit day, and first up was my take on Anzac Biscuits.  ANZAC actually stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp.  That army fought valiantly in World War 1 at Gallipoli and other places.  Anzac biscuits, in one form, were sent to the troops.  I believe, from reading, that those biscuits […]
