Hot chocolate

Hot chocolate

Homemade hot chocolate is so easy to make and a healthier alternative to shop-bought powders or mixes. If you prepare your own, you can control what goes into each mug of deliciousness and choose better quality chocolate that is lower in sugar and other additives. Remember, dark chocolate gives a better, richer flavour than milk chocolate. If preferred, you can stir in a little honey for a sweeter taste.

Lemon, thyme & poppy seed cupcakes

Lemon, thyme & poppy seed cupcakes

Lemon and poppy seeds are a well-known combination, and these cupcakes add a zesty flair to any tea table or picnic basket. The fresh thyme gives a lovely botanical flavour to the cupcakes, making them a little more sophisticated. The ratio of lemon juice to icing sugar adds just enough acidity to the recipe to balance out the sweetness and rounds the cakes off beautifully.
