So after a few slightly tiring weeks to mark the beginning of my second season in the Alps, I finally bring you my first proper blog post! And while it may be a complete cop out in terms of originality and skill, you will definitely thank me later.
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 deciding that I needed to branch out my ideas a little more in my review for the hazelnut and raspberry baked cheesecake brownie at Olive and Bean last week, I have completely contradicted myself already. I think it’s safe to say that my raspberry, hazelnut and meringue squares might not be the most original, but they are pretty yummy so, again, it’s a very sorry not sorry situation.
So after my first ever review on my blog last week, I return to my attempts at concocting recipes in true form. Essentially, this means I run out of time and can’t do anything even nearly as ambitious as I would have liked it to be. This week I definitely faced the same issue, but this time I didn’t even have time to get any ingredients. So, after scouring the larder I have orange, marzipan and date cake and, I have to say, it’s pretty delicious.
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.
In this weeks post I inform you, with regret, that there is a very slim chance I might have slightly cheated. I have recently been trying to stick to a ‘no refined sugar ‘ kind of health kick in the upcoming weeks to the tough mudder I have signed up for (there it is), but I couldn’t resist giving these bad boys a go.
First of all I apologise for the tardiness of this post; even though the hard part (i.e. the baking) was done in time, I ran out of time to find an opportunity to bore you with my thoughts as I usually do on a Sunday night so you will have to find it in your hearts to forgive me. I promise to get back on track now my schedule is returning to normal.
