I have finally come up with my favourite chocolate cupcake base and I am super excited to share it with you! I reworked my favourite chocolate cake recipe so now my chocolate cupcakes taste just as good as my cakes – what a relief! And seeing as it’s Blogmas I thought I would put a festive spin on it by making it minty; I personally cannot stand mint but my boyfriend absolutely loved them. I love the base of this recipe with all of my heart; it’s dense but light with a strong chocolate taste and it also rises evenly – it.is.the.BEST. What are you baking at the moment? Have you made Christmas mince pies yet? I haven’t even eaten one of the supermarket ones yet – blasphemy!

This is my go-to ginger cake recipe; it’s literally the BEST ginger cake I have ever tried. I’ve been using this recipe from BBC Good Food for at least five years and it has always been a winner. I have omitted the caramel icing just to keep it simple but if you’re going all out I HIGHLY recommend making it because it’s magical. I’ve also quartered the recipe to fit in two 10cm mini cake tins because I live with my boyfriend and there is no way we can eat an entire cake! Well we could but we shouldn’t.

I adore gingerbread biscuits and I feel as though December is the month of the ginger spiced foods and I thought I might as well make gingerbread Christmas tree biscuits; just to make it that little more festive! I don’t know about you but I do not have the time to make a gingerbread house only for it to fall down in five minutes and/or smear white royal icing on every service of my kitchen – no thanks. I decided to simply cut out triangles in the dough that way you won’t need any stencils and you can whip these biscuits up in no time at all. The base of these biscuits is vegan if you use a vegetable fat margarine which is what I do and it tastes exactly the same. I have also added fresh ginger to this recipe as I think it makes it taste TEN times better!
