Gluten Free Vegan Brownies

Now if you’ve seen any of my previous Scrapbook posts, you’ll know I’m a big fan of back to basics baking. Raw ingredients, bit of elbow grease and a whole lot of flour on your nose. However sometimes, that’s not always feasible. I’m also a big fan of a pre-made mix for cakes when it’s…

Palindrome Poppet Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t know what I’d do without tea. I have a liiiiitle obsession, so when John Lewis got in touch and asked me to try some of their products to create my version of afternoon tea, I was game. Now I don’t know about you, but afternoon tea…

Fudge Scones

A traditional scone is a stalwart British snack. Don’t get me wrong, I love a raisin scone laden with clotted cream and smothered in jam, but sometimes I just fancy mixin’ it up a little. Let me introduce… The fudge scone. Sweet, filling, satisfying. Honestly the perfect snack when you’re feeling the afternoon hunger pang….

Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Cupcakes

In my humble opinion,  gin is one of the best spirits around. There’s so many variations out there, and I love it how one gin never tastes the same as another, plus it’s a really versatile ingredient, as this recipe shows. I got this gin from John Lewis as part of an afternoon tea feature…

Honey Raisin Flapjack

As much as I try keep a hold over my sweet tooth, there’s those days when all I crave is something sweet and indulgent. When one of those hits I’m always chuffed when there’s some gooey, sticky flapjack to hand. These beauties take less than half an hour to make, keep for a week and…

Giving it Gousto

Cooking is my solitude. When I’ve had a busy week, I cook. When I can’t get my head round a shed load of worries, I cook. When nothing else will help relax me, I cook. Usually I’m the kind of person that heads to the kitchen and throws together something with whatever’s in the fridge…

Marvy Meringue

If there’s one thing that goes brilliantly with fresh berries at summer is meringue. Last weekend I decided to whip up a few of the crispy, gooey treats to go with a whole bunch of sweet berries for post Sunday lunch. Ingredients 3 large egg whites 175g caster sugar 1 pinch of salt Method 1….

BBQ Pizza

We have a little addiction. It knows no bounds. Pizza. That heavenly, dough-y gift from the Gods that is pizza. We can’t get enough of the stuff, and with the warm weekends we’ve been having, nothing has seemed more appetising than a cold beer and some home-made pizza. We have been desperate to try making…

Low Cal Vegetable Soup

So here’s some bad news in the world of Palindrome Poppet… my new workplace doesn’t have a microwave!!! After living off reheated healthy meals, it’s definitely been a shock to the (digestive) system, but I’m thinking of investing in a new thermos type container to keep some food warm. Come autumn I’m definitely going to…

Peppermint Pudding

Another instalment from my #TryTotal recipes, this pudding is sweet and refreshing! A healthier take on ice cream, this pudding uses a few simple ingredients whizzed through my Yonanas machine. I won my Yonanas machine way back last summer in one of Carly’s giveaways – it certainly makes making banana based ice cream much easier!…
