M&S Roasted Pineapple & Coconut Cake

A new season means new foods and that make for happy people. M&S have a new range of baked goods using varying flours, tasty fruits and vegetables and store cupboard ingredients. When I spied the M&S Roasted Pineapple & Coconut Cake I knew it had to be on my must try list.  This cake sits along with 5 others, Vanilla and Blackcurrant, Lime, Carrot and Courgette Cupcakes, Chocolate Date Brownie, Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake and Banana and Blueberry Loaf. I do not usually opt for coconut however recently I have been finding the use of coconut quite delightful.  This little beaut I found… View Post

Christmas: M&S Christmas Pudding Iced Buns

M&S have certainly come up with quite the festive range this year and there is so much to choose from that it is hard to pick just one. We had the most surprisingly good Gingerbread Chocolate Teacakes, the what the heck are these Winter Berries & Prosecco Crisps, and today it is the turn of the M&S Christmas Pudding Iced Buns.  Despite being tucked away on the bottom shelves these immediately caught my eye. Oh so festive looking, M&S have given the humble iced bun a christmassy twist. The M&S christmas range has got some quite pricey numbers but these… View Post

Christmas: M&S Winter Berries and Prosecco Crisps

M&S are always ones to push the boundaries and make us question whether sweet can be made into salty and if drinks can be made into food. Well in this case we have both. Enter M&S Winter Berries and Prosecco crisps. Okay despite my better judgement I was swayed by sheer curiosity and edible gold stars. There has been quite the trend with not so average crisps so why not make fruity ones? Visually these were oh so exciting. With the pink berry hue and the shimmery gold stars, these were delightfully festive and would sit comfortably on the party table.  Per… View Post

Christmas: M&S Christmas Turkey and Maple Syrup Crisps

Crisps are a staple at Christmas, and at any good shindig for that matter. I do love a crisp, usually I am very particular with my salt and vinegar however Christmas brings out the adventurous side of me and I cannot pass up the opportunity for the turkey crisps. Airing on a little crazy M&S Christmas Turkey And Maple Syrup crisps have hit the shelves. Made using specially selected British potatoes that are thinly sliced skin on and hand cooked in small patches, promises to give a delicious and crispy snack. There really is nothing worse than a limp crisp!… View Post

Christmas: M&S Viennese Gingerbread Creams

My love for gingerbread continues today in the form of biscuits. Now these aren’t just any gingerbread creams, these are M&S Gingerbread Viennese Creams. After the triumphant Mr Kipling Gingerbread Whirls I do wonder how M&S can top them. Each pack contains 8 viennese creams in sets of two in a plastic tray. In comparison to the exceedingly good Mr Kiplings’, M&S have gone for a far lighter buttered shortbread and spolodges of buttercream filling to avoid the potential for slippage, as well as giving them a far more uniformed appearance. The biscuit itself wasn’t as short as I had expected so… View Post
