If you happened to read my last post for porn star martini cheesecake squares, then you will know that the time finally arrived to celebrate my last weekend before moving to France for another ski season. I will admit now that my decision to try these particular bakes was purely coincidental and by no means a representation of any mood apart from the constant desire to stuff my face with sugar. But I have to admit both bakes certainly did the trick.
After my recent attempts at some slightly more complicated recipes, I decided this week I would give myself a little bit of respite and revisit my absolute go-to, traybakes. However, unlike with my honeycomb and chocolate cheesecake, I thought I would make some attempts to stick with the healthier theme.
So after dedicating bakes to holidays such as Christmas, New Years and Easter, I feel it is only fair that Halloween gets a turn. This time I’m also being proactive: by launching the post before the actual day, you might actually get a chance to try them out! (and let me know if you do, I’m keen to see what you think of this recipe!)
Although the severe neglect I have shown my blog in the past few weeks seems to be getting worse, I promise you I am about to (fingers crossed) make an attempt at some sort of redemption. Since I was too busy selling cheese this bank holiday weekend, which gave me the perfect opportunity to bask in the unusually warm British sunshine, I didn’t manage to get a post out. But, yet again, I’m sure you’ll forgive me, mainly because you don’t have much choice! I therefore offer you the first of not one, but two posts this week; you can’t say I don’t spoil you!
You might have noticed in a few blog posts recently that I have’t been able to give my posts my full creative time and attention. This probably is quite a good thing as there has been a lot less butchering of different recipes, but I also have to admit that, unfortunately, this week is no different. I say unfortunately with a very sorry, not sorry attitude, and that’s because they are really delicious even though they are vegan!
From Jaffa Cakes to Nutella, it’s safe to say I am piling the sugar in for these blog posts and, even though my jeans might disagree, not a single part of my is even slightly sorry. While this recipe in particular is definitely geared towards those with a sweet tooth and could fall into the borderline health risk category, it is absolutely delicious and I would modestly recommend it.
After taking a week off I have to admit that my lack of posting is very much met with a ‘sorry, not sorry’ attitude. I can, in some ways, try and redeem myself in the sense that I was at least baking myself in the Spanish sun (but my attempts to tan merely resulted in some fairy questionable burn lines), but I cannot make any claim of doing anything more than being thoroughly lazy. While I could go on to make many more smug comments about going to Fib Festival, I will move on before it turns into a 1000 word long ramble and turn to what we’re all here for, Jaffa Cheesecake.
