Fabulous Foodie Fridays #61

Hi guys, I hope you’ve had a great week! I haven’t had a chance to be in the kitchen as much as I would have liked over the past few days, so I’m planning a big baking session over the weekend. I’m thinking chocolate self-saucing pudding and chocolate chip cookies (oops… both are chocolatey – of course!!). Anyway, enjoy these yummy recipes and have a fabulous weekend!

How brilliant is Kim from Land of Zonkt. She filled yo-yos with Nutella. Pure genius!

Speaking of fabulous little recipes, Thoroughly Nourished Life put two of my favourite things together in her passionfruit curd cupcakes with white chocolate frosting. Absolutely delicious!

And how amazing does this vanilla layer cake from Domestic Gothess look. It’s quite possibly the prettiest thing I’ve seen all week (plus everyone needs a good vanilla cake recipe!).

The sun has been out this week (but it’s still freezing!). So VegeTARAian’s French Onion Soup is here at just the right time. Give me some crusty bread on the side and I’ll be set!

Finally, I loved this recipe for Cinnamon, Banana and Chocolate Chunk Muffins from Rosehips and Rhubarb. I always have these ingredients at home, plus they’re really budget-friendly!

Pop over the check out the lovely Lauren’s top picks too.

Well that’s it from me – I say toodles to the boring old weekdays and hello to the fabulous weekend!! xxx

  7. All of these look so good! Thanks for hosting the link up! 😀

  8. I love a french onion soup. It’s been awhile. Now I probably won’t be able to get the idea out of my head.

  11. That passion fruit cupcake looks amazeballs! I can’t wait to make it! Thanks for hosting the link up!

  12. Will have to get my 15 year old on to some of these she is always after new recipes to try out

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Gotta love having your own personal chef!

  13. I love a good bake day… This week was a shocker, nothing I touched worked out well at all. But I guess there are never fails in the kitchen just learns.
    Thanks for the yo yo recipe! They seldom lasted a few days.
    Those passionfruit cupcakes looks devine! xx

  14. Nothing wrong with a weekend of chocolate! As always everything looks delicious. I don’t think those muffins would last long in our house. They’d be perfect warm straight out of the oven. I love a recipe where you already have all the ingredients you need!

  15. Grace says:

    French onion soup! Perfect for this weather! Let us know how that chicolate self saucing pudding goes! Love that stuff!

  16. Thank you so much for featuring my recipe! Sorry it’s taken me so long to thank you, we have just moved house and have no internet 🙁
    Can’t wait to try out some of the other recipes in this round up!
