November 26, 2021

I've been making these for a few years now and they're super-quick and simple. The boys think they’re a great treat, and I know it’s a healthy alternative to biscuits, cake and bread - they'd scoff their way through a bakery if I let them. Use a good quality peanut butter without added sugar.

Boston Cream Pie - Gluten free

November 20, 2021

With Thanksgiving next week this recipe is a nod to our American friends. Although it's called a Boston cream pie, it's actually a cake that acquired its name when cakes and pies were cooked in the same pans, and the words were used interchangeably. It was created by
