Our favourite time of year is just around the corner. Not Christmas, or the next series of Love Island, but the Great British Bake Off finale. To help beat those baking blues when our Tuesdays will go back to being just ‘ordinary’, we’ve compiled a list of easy and delicious sweet treats, to celebrate National Baking Week (16th – 22nd October). So what’re you waiting for?
Beetroot and Walnut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Who doesn’t love a creamy cupcake? These tasty little numbers are nutty, moist, and whilst they might not count towards your five-a-day, they’ll satisfy all the family.
Flourless Walnut Cake
Packed with flavour, this flourless walnut cake makes a delicious conclusion to dinner. Add poached pears and crème fraiche for a show-stopping twist or simply serve on its own to really enjoy its moist texture.
Raw Walnut Flapjacks
Calling all first time bakers, cooking haters and treat makers! These no-bake flapjacks combine the flavours of golden California walnuts, figs, orange and cranberry for a mouthwatering snack or dessert – perfect for lunchboxes, elevenses and something to nibble on during Great British Bake Off.
