Homemade scones

I love scones and I had to try to make them at home, as the shop-bought ones aren’t great. I’ve tried Mary Berry’s recipe and they are delicious!! 1 Scone has 221.2 calories; 6.7g protein; 33.7g fat; 4.5g carbs; 5.9g fibre.

Posh jelly

Maybe posh jelly is not the way to describe the recipe, but for me it’s posh enough to give it this name. It’s so easy to make, and it’s healthy.
For the jelly I followed the instructions on the pack. The vegetarian gel has only 2 ingredients: some sugar and agar, that is a Japanese algae.

I’ve discovered The Great Blogger Bake Off a few months ago, started by another blogger and I loved it. I couldn’t take part as I didn’t see it in time and with the house move (and renovating), it would have been impossible to bake something every week.

Chocolate truffles

Fancy chocolate truffles? Why not some a batch of raw, healthy chocolate truffles. It took 5 minutes to make them and another 30 minutes to wait while they were cooling in the fridge. Using an avocado, I was able to make 9 truffles at only 57.6 calories each.

Graveyard cake

Our first graveyard cake. Made it a few days ago, but with Halloween in mind :)

The cake is a Victoria sponge, with toffee filling. I’ also made a cupcake type of sponge in a large tray so I can carve the decorations. For the skulls I’ve used a ice tray, it is silicone and it can be used in the oven to.
