Fabulous Foodie Fridays #46

Has everyone survived their Easter sugar coma? I certainly made quite the dent on the worlds chocolate supplies, but hey, it’s a once a year thing right!? Kinda…! Anyway, I hope you had an amazing time relaxing with your friends and family over the long weekend. Geez I love whoever decided that long weekends should be a ‘thing’. Last weeks Fabulous Foodie Fridays party certainly inspired a lot of Easter weekend baking for me. Here are some of my favourite recipes from last week…


I made (and bought!) so many hot cross buns in the lead up to Easter so I still have quite a few in my freezer. If you’re like me and have way too many hot cross buns lying around then you’ve got to make this Nutella Hot Cross Bun Bread Pudding from Tea For Tammi… this is definitely making an appearance in my house this weekend!

A few weeks ago, Lauren and I set up a Facebook baking group for home cooks (you can join it here) and Belinda from Bindy Bee shared this amazing Caramel Cake recipe in there. I LOVED the look of it, so was very thrilled to see it’s sugary goodness turn up in last weeks Fabulous Foodie Fridays party!

Caramel Cake

I’m a big fan of making my own peanut butter, and this ABC Nut Butter from She Makes Magic sounds incredible. It’s made from almonds, brazil nuts and cashews… and I can totally see this taking my usual peanut butter and banana on toast to a whole new level!

Just because Easter is over doesn’t mean you need to kiss goodbye to chocolate (as if you would). How yummy do these chocolate parfaits from House In Tillford look. I think I’d top mine with chopped up chocolate honeycomb or Peppermint Crisp.

I am a girl who loves Pecan Pie, so of course, these Mini Pecan Tarts from Daya Always Says caught my eye! So yum!
