You can really go to town with the flavourings and toppings with this recipe. These are pancakes, not to be confused with crepes, so just use the base recipe and add whatever you fancy.

Smoky Tuna with Guacamole

I love this marinade as you can use it on anything and it uses one of my favourite store cupboard pastes – chipotle chilli paste. Wonderfully smoky and packs the jalapeno punch.

Cinnamon Carrot Cake

I’m sure you won’t believe me but these little treats are actually low in fat! They are made using rapeseed oil so they stay moist, and I’ve used half wholemeal flour and half self raising flour to make the cake batter.

Toasted Hazelnut & Cardamom Caramels

Tags: , ,

Caramels you have made yourself are much more impressive than store bought ones, and they are surprisingly easy to make. You do need a cook’s thermometer which you can buy at most good cook shops or buy it online. They taste best within a week of making them, which i’d be surprised if they last you that long. Awesome as a sweet treat after dinner, or simply on their own!

Caramelised Sweet Saffron Rice

Tags: , ,

There is nothing in this recipe that I don’t love – caramelised onions, sweet dried fruit and the royal spice saffron. Perfect with anything!

Swirly Cinnamon Buns

This is a great recipe to make when you have guests coming round. They look great and taste delicious – much better than store bought ones!
