400g of white chocolate, chopped
200g of Biscoff spread
125g of mini white and pink marshmallow
125g of Biscoff biscuits
100g of caramel popcorn, chopped
50g of butter
For the topping:
30g of Biscoff biscuits, broken
Step 1Line a square 20cm baking tin with parchment paper.
Step 2In a large heatproof bowl, melt the white chocolate, butter and Biscoff spread either in a microwave or over a pan of simmering water.
Step 3Chop the biscuits into small chunks and add these to the melted mixture along with the chopped popcorn and marshmallows.
Step 4Mix all the ingredients together and pour into the square tin.
Step 5Top with the broken biscuits and leave to chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Step 6Remove from the tin and slice into squares before serving.
300g of dark chocolate
75g of butter
100g of tahini, plus a generous tbsp to finish
200g of soft light brown sugar
2 ripe bananas, mashed
80g of rye flour
1 tsp of sesame seeds
Step 1Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas Mark 4. Line a small roasting pan or baking tin (approx. 30 x 20cm) with a reusable silicone baking sheet.
Step 2Melt the chocolate, butter and tahini in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
Step 3Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt together until light and fluffy. Fold in the mashed bananas, then the melted chocolate mix. You will notice the mixture starts to thicken a little. When everything is thoroughly mixed, carefully fold in the flour until fully incorporated.
Step 4Turn into the prepared tin and drizzle the remaining tablespoon of tahini all over the top. Then, sprinkle over the sesame seeds.
Step 5Bake for 25-30 minutes until the brownie is just set – it should still feel soft and moist. Leave the tin on a wire rack to cool for an hour or so.
125g of almonds, roughly chopped
125g of quinoa flakes
45g of sunflower seeds
45g of chia seeds
100g of dried cranberries
125g of puffed rice cereal
125g of dark chocolate chips
Grated zest of 2 large oranges
6 tbsp of coconut oil
125ml of clear honey
30g of light brown sugar
Step 1Place the almonds, quinoa flakes, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, dried cranberries, puffed rice cereal, chocolate chips, and orange zest in a bowl. Mix well with a wooden spoon and set aside. Grease and line a 20cm x 25cm (8in x 10in) baking tin with baking parchment.
Step 2Heat the oil, honey, and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, then cook for about 3 minutes, or until the sugar has melted. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate drops, and stir until they have melted.
Step 3Pour the honey and chocolate mixture onto the dry ingredients. Stir using a wooden spoon until evenly mixed. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin. Press down firmly with the back of a metal spoon to make a firm, flat layer.
Step 4Place the baking tin in the fridge for at least 4 hours, to allow the mixture to firm up. Remove from the fridge, turn out onto a chopping board, and cut into 16 pieces.
150g of butter
300g of plain flour
½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp of vanilla sugar or extract or the seeds from 1 vanilla pod
¼ tsp of sea salt
150g of light brown soft sugar
100g of caster sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp of whole milk
Step 1Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, vanilla and salt in a bowl and set side.
Step 2Combine the sugars with the cooled, melted butter and stir until no lumps remain. Combine the egg, egg yolk and milk and mix with the sugar and butter until thoroughly combined.
Step 3Add the flour, bit by bit, mixing until everything is incorporated. Add the Daim pieces and mix to combine. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few hours.
Step 4Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5.
Step 5Form the dough into rough balls, each weighing about 40 g and place on the prepared baking sheets around 5 cm apart.
Step 6Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until just golden. Remove from the oven immediately and transfer to a cooling rack – the middle should still be slightly soft but they will harden up after a while. The cookies will be at their very best about half an hour after removing from the oven.
125g of unsalted butter, softened
175g of caster sugar
2 medium free-range eggs
Zest of 1 lemon
175g of self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp of milk
100g of icing sugar
4 tbsp of elderflower cordial lemon zest, to decorate
Step 1Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 1kg loaf tin and base line with baking parchment.
Step 2Using a wooden spoon, cream together the butter and sugar for about 4-5 minutes, or use an electric beater, until light and fluffy. Then beat in the eggs and lemon zest.
Step 3Add the flour and salt, stirring until the mixture is well combined, then add the milk.
Step 4Spoon into the prepared tin and place into the oven. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until risen, golden brown and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Step 5Mix together the icing sugar with the elderflower cordial to form a runny icing. Drizzle over the hot cake, top with lemon zest and leave to cool completely before slicing.
For the flax egg:
1 tbsp of ground flaxseed
3 tbsp of warm water
280g of self-raising flour, sifted
150g of coconut sugar
1 tsp each of bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and arrowroot, sifted
Pinch of Himalayan salt
¼ tsp of vanilla powder
2 tsp of ground cinnamon
¼ tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
50g of walnuts, roughly chopped
80g of sultanas
290ml of carrot juice
150ml of sunflower oil
¼ tsp of rice wine vinegar

140g of carrot, peeled and finely grated
1 tsp of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
For the buttercream frosting:
150g of cashews, soaked in water overnight
100ml of tinned coconut milk, shaken well before opening
40ml of coconut oil, melted
4 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tsp of vanilla extract or paste
¼ tsp of lemon zest
Pinch of Himalayan salt
40g of walnut halves
1 orange, zested
Step 1Preheat the oven to 180°C and lightly grease two 20cm sandwich tins with sunflower oil. Line the bases with parchment paper.
Step 2Combine the flaxseed with the warm water to make your flax egg then set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
Step 3In an electric stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the dry ingredients.
Step 4In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients including the flax egg. Then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes to ensure they are well incorporated.
Step 5Divide the cake mixture evenly between each prepared tin. Place them onto a baking tray. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out clean. Leave them to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before gently turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Step 6For the buttercream frosting, drain and rinse the cashews, discarding the soaking water. Place them into the blender with all the other ingredients and blitz until the frosting is creamy and smooth.
Step 7Spread the frosting on top of the first cake, then place the second cake on top like a sandwich and cover the top with the remaining frosting.
Step 8Decorate your cake with the walnut halves dotted around the edge and orange zest liberally sprinkled over the top.

Step 3In a small bowl, melt the remaining 50g of peanut butter with the chopped chocolate in the microwave or on the hob. Stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the peanut butter layer.
Step 4Chill the bars in the refrigerator until completely firm, at least 2 hours. Allow them to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve chilled.
Step 5Cover the leftover bars tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
