Lucy Loves… A Classic Victoria Sponge

Goodness me I’ve been writing Lucy Loves and rambling away for 5 years now and never featured a Victoria Sponge. I’m not quite sure how that’s happened as I must make this classic cake at least once a fortnight. Not only is this evergreen recipe my favourite, it seems to be a top 5 for…

Lucy Loves…Easter Simnel Cake

Easter can’t come soon enough for me. I am excited to spend some time with the family, to enjoy some food, drink too much and to put my feet up for an hour or two. You can keep all your cheap chocolate, give me a bloody great big slice of Simnel Cake and I will…

Lucy Loves… Sticky Golden Syrup Cake

Sometimes the need for cake is strong but the will is weak. That’s the kind of mood I’m in a the moment. Motivation is low and I am just not in the mood for eating anything remotely healthy. I have had a cold for two weeks, the wind has whipped my hair into a tatty…

Lucy Loves… Lemon and Elderflower Cupcakes

The Royal Wedding is nearly here, thanks to Lucy Loves and East Sheen Village you too can enjoy the happy couples wedding cakes in your own home. I completely love a royal wedding. I shouldn’t be such an old romantic, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do seem to be genuinely in love and on a…

Lucy Loves… Earl Grey Tea Loaf

It’s St George’s Day, so let’s at least mark it in some small cake based way. St George’s Day is a day which goes unmarked in most of our calendars. It’s a shame, but it seems to have pro Brexit connotations these days. Whatever your persuasion I feel we should mark our heritage in some…

Lucy Loves…….Nana’s Chocolate Cake

This week, Lucy is helping us to get ready for Mother’s Day with a huge tray of fudgy chocolate cake. Ever since I started baking, I have been slightly obsessed by cakes made using vinegar. My obsession came with this particular Chocolate Cake recipe and has gone on ever since. I am always slightly puzzled…

Lucy Loves……Coconut Almond Plum Cake

This week, Lucy has been browsing the cookery section of the Sheen Book Shop and recreated this soft and tasty seasonal bake. I feel I am quite late to the Ottolenghi party. I used to be scared of his recipes and found them to have a lengthy list of ingredients most of which I didn’t…

Lucy Loves a Raspberry Breakfast Loaf

This week, Lucy is sharing a breakfast food revelation which she thinks you’re going to love. Breakfast and I have never been very good friends. In the old, youthful days I skipped it all together, since then with age and appetite, breakfast could often last all morning and well into lunch. Even now I am…

Lucy Loves Rhubarb and Custard Cake

With Mothering Sunday on the horizon, this week, Lucy is sharing a recipe to butter up the Mum in your life. Mother’s Day can be a bit hit and miss in our house. Not being mean, but over the years, it’s been a rogue mixture of toddler and not so toddler tantrums, sub standard pub lunches mixed…

Lucy Loves Red Velvet Cake

This week, Lucy is preparing us for the supposed most romantic day of the year with a lovingly baked treat. According to marketing types and card manufacturers the most romantic day of the year is approaching. If that’s the case then romance is dead in our house. We do exchange cards on the 14th but we’ve never…
