Day of baking with Amy from Conman Cakes.
Check out the blog! www.conmancakes.tumblr.com
Spent the day baking and filming and collaborating with Orla from Generation Illustration, video coming soon, excitement!
Two different recipes, fluffy American style and classic crepe style.
The great thing about pancakes is how versatile they are, try adding some ground ginger and cinnamon for simple gingerbread pancakes. Or a handful of your favourite fruit or some chocolate chips work well with the American recipe. And of course adding cheese is never a bad thing…
From the wonderful BBC Food:
My only changes were that I always use butter to fry instead of vegetable oil, but either works well!

Video coming soon. Just in time for pancake day!
Triple Chocolate Brownies
Yes, three kinds of chocolate. From a BBC Food recipe: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/how_to_make_brownies_14648
These are gooey and dense, like good brownies should be.
I’ve started making how to videos.
Giant Cous Cous and Roasted Vegetable Salad
Giant couscous (also known as ‘Israeli couscous’) is so much better than regular couscous! It’s not the easiest thing to find, but you can always use the other stuff if you can’t source it.
This is my own version of a Marks and Spencer salad that I spent about 3 months completely addicted to. Not surprisingly it’s cheaper to make your own and even better when you add feta!
Garlic and Lemon Pasta
This is the simplest recipe, but it’s so tasty. It can be eaten hot or cold and works well with fresh basil instead of dried, and with a little parmesan grated on top.
I plan to work on recipes for infused oils soon. I often find myself buying them but they’re very easy to make at home and they keep forever.
Spelt and Oat Muffins
These are really filling and are great for a healthy breakfast or snack. This recipe makes about 20 buns, but they freeze quite well.
The recipe can be changed around depending on what you have in the cupboard. Bananas work well instead of apples, or try adding 100g yoghurt.
Also a choc chip version is delicious!
Tumblr just informed me that ‘Generation Illustration’ is 3 years old today. So that’s cool. To celebrate this joyous occasion, I’m going to make smokey bbq- flavoured things
Goat’s Cheese, Red Onion and Roasted Squash Tartlets

So simple, but so delicious
