As the weather turns chilly this week and my works continue to pile on, baking really allows me to take a step back and relax from the stress. Having said that, despite working through the weekends in the past weeks, I felt like I am starting to enjoy my job again. Perhaps is a turning point for me? (But we shall wait and see about that lol.)
Yesterday, I baked some traybakes for Free Cakes for Kids Hackney (whilst also sneaked our for a nice Indian supper in between haha). It’s a charity I’ve been working with for a couple of months now, and honestly what’s better than sharing the joy of your bakes than with someone else? 🙂 (And to be fair, it just gives me an excuse to temporarily drop my work and do something else lol.)
For the traybakes, I decided to go with some rainbow rocky roads and white chocolate & raspberry blondies topped with crushed bananas crisps. I shared my rocky road recipe in a post before (Link here👉 https://tangosbaking.home.blog/2019/06/03/monday-blues-rocky-roads/), but this time I switched it up with some tri-coloured marshmallows. For the blondies, I used the recipe from this website👉 https://www.janespatisserie.com/2016/11/10/white-chocolate-raspberry-blondies/, but added 50g less caster sugar as I felt it was sweet enough with the white chocolate.
Why don’t you also give it a try this weekend? 😉 What would you like in your box of sweets? ❤️
