Mother's Day Cake

Starting with the spring equinox and ending with Mother's day, this week is truly one of our favourites in March. If you've not yet figured out the best way to show your mum just how much she means to you, remember: food is always the way to the heart!

We've compiled a list of some lovely cake recipes from some of the best baking bloggers across the UK. These cakes are ideal for you to bake with your mum this mothers day, because spending time with the person who created you is perhaps the best gift you can give. 

To celebrate the return of the spring, we've also decided to choose cakes that have a bit of a fruity infusion. This should help the post-cake guilt! These recipes range in difficulty and taste, so there should be something to suit everyone.

Pie

Happy British Pie Week to you all! Is there anything more British than the humble pie? The queen, perhaps - but we’re certain she loves pies too. For this reason, we’ve decided to share some of the best pie recipes we’ve stumbled across with you! We’ve chosen a bit of everything, ranging from sweet to savoury, meaty to vegetarian, so there’s a pie to suit everyone.

While we're here, we thought we’d share an interesting fact with you too. Back in the day (that day being medieval times), pie baking was almost a competitive sport, and many chefs would place live birds underneath the lid of their pie to create a spectacular scene when the pie was cut into. That’s where the ‘sing a song of sixpence’ nursery rhyme came from. Interesting, right? 

With this knowledge, you can now go ahead and make one of our best pie recipes,  feeling happy that you know some of the humble pie's heritage. Happy baking!

Pancake Stack

Happy Pancake Day everyone! If you're anything like us, you're always out to make the most of every food-based holiday, which is why we thought it would be a good idea to share some delicious pancake (or pancake themed) recipes with you today!

Now, the traditional pancake day fare is certainly up for debate in the UK, especially with the rise of American inspired brunch spots, which serve up delicious platefuls of buttermilk pancakes. Regardless of this, there are many who still enjoy a plateful of traditional Shrove pancakes with lemon and sugar (or maybe even some Nutella), leaving us conflicted over what to make! 

Luckily we've decided to avoid the obvious with our chosen pancake recipes today, in order to share a few more unusual recipes to try out this evening! With everything from scrumptious, savoury pancakes, to french toast bakes to choose from, you're sure to find a new and delicious idea to inspire your pancake creation!
