A mahoosive welcome to June 2019 #BakingCrumbs. I’m here to tell you what a fabulous collection of baking beauties we have for you all. These delicious recipes have left me slack jawed and drooling every time…and isn’t that just the point?….Please read on and join me in a little dribbling……..you’re amongst friends.
As the summer approaches I fall in love all over again with the delicious recipes that this season of sunshine (hopefully) produces. Of course very much in season at the time of writing is wonderful rhubarb and we have had more than our fair share of incredible rhubarb recipes.
Curly’s Cooking brought us these INCREDIBLE Rhubarb Crumble Muffins. She roasts her rhubarb and then tops with a buttery crumble topping. I can’t stop thinking about them!
Jo’s Kitchen Larder came with her Easy Rhubarb Crumble to the pudding party and I just swooned. A crumble is one of my most favourite puddings and one filled with sweet but tart rhubarb is right up there with the best.
Recipes Made Easy gave us her incredible Rhubarb Cake with Elderflower Drizzle Icing. How wonderfully elegant does that sound? I have never tried that combo but Jacqui is well versed and assures us that it is incredible.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy knocked my rhubarb socks off with her Easy Rhubarb Streusel Slice recipe. She puts pastry on the bottom, fills with sweetened rhubarb and tops with an amazing nutty and oaty crumble topping. Can you imagine? It’s a big slurp from me.
Farmer’s Girl kitchen left me obsessing about her Rhubarb and Pecan Muffins Recipe. Sweet and tangy within these muffins have a crunchy cinnamon top. A CRUNCHY CINNAMON TOP! I’m so gonna…..
Gluten Free Alchemist baked her Gluten Free Rhubarb Upside Down Cake to a standing ovation from me. Incredibly beautiful this clever recipe uses a strawberry and almond sponge to set off the rhubarb perfectly.
We also had some great cookie recipes linked up. A genre very close to my heart, having just posted a Baking Round-Up for Brit Mums on the very same subject.
Crunch and Cream came up with her genius recipe for her Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie. Just enough for when you need to cap your sweet snacking. A bit of a problem for me.
Cooking With My Kids brought her fabulous Fork Biscuits. Great fun to bake with the kids and just so damn cute.
I also linked up my Easy Shortbread Cookies
Cook with Renu gave us her damply fudgy Chocolate Coconut Flour Cookies. They are gluten free, low carb, paleo and contain no white sugar. What an incredible recipe!
Tin and Thyme made me feel all warm inside with her Spelt Snickerdoodles. These cinnamon spiced biscuits are made with spelt flour only adding to the flavour of it all! I bet these are magnificent.
I also have to mention these two stupendous cheesecakes. Both incredibly lush and both hit me where it matters……my cheesecake gut. What beauties of their class, top of their cheesecake tree’s.
Baking Explorer’s Biscoff Cheesecake has been whispering in my ear since the very first time I saw it. How AMAZING is this biscoff beauty?
This Chocolate Ricotta Cheesecake from Everyday Healthy Living is another wonderful cheesecake, Monika assures it’s healthy, being low in fat and sugar. I’m not sure how as it screams dark decadence.
And Now For My Four Featured and Fabulously Cute Cupcakes Recipes.
The first is these classically beautiful Vanilla Cupcakes from Curly’s Cooking. Simple but mouthwatering. The kind of recipe everyone should have in their repertoire.
Next are these brilliant Owl Cupcakes from Cooking With My Kids. I don’t think I have seen anything so cute and clever in a cupcake for a long time. I am so going to have to make these with my children. Genius.
Only Crumbs Remain linked up these Queenly Rhubarb and Strawberry Meringue Cupcakes. They are fit for a Royal Garden Party. So beautiful and with a stunning flavour combination that would blow your socks off.
Jhuls from The Not so Creative Cook brought her Milo Cupcakes to the Cupcake party. I have never tried milo but the maltiness of it sounds incredibly delicious. How cute are those little square packets!
The recipe that I chose to make in Apply To Face Blog’s Kitchen
My children just love my FlapJacks recipe and it is one of the recipes that I am most proud of. Something deeply satisfying and delicious happens when you meld oats and sugar expertly together. I spent a lot of time researching the ratios required to gain that OMG moment that I was exactly looking for. Consequently I have taken the humble Flapjack somewhat to my heart so I knew I just had to bake these gorgeous looking Chocolate Banana Oat Bars from Searching For Spice. They were absolutely delicious.
