S’Mores (aka Chocolate & Marshmallow) Pie

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 30th October 2018

This pie is a friend-making pie. It is ideal for the darkened setting of a bonfire night party where you can not worry about politeness and shovel it in with a spoon or your fingers, giving you a sugary hit to keep you warm through the festivities. It is gooey and chocolatey and you will end up with laughing at each other’s choolcatey moustaches and the stringy bits of marshmallow getting stuck in your hair. It’s also VERY dietary-requirement friendly as it is almost accidentally vegan, dairy and gluten free.

Pumpkin Toffee Apple Cake

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 31st October 2016

We’re finally there. Gone are the teasing summer months when hot, sweltering gorgeous sunny days mix equally and frequently with grey, rainy nothing-type days. Autumn has begun. Cold nights, blue skies, crunchy leaves. This recipe was meant to be for bonfire night but you may notice that I’ve basically thrown the autumn kitchen-sink at it. I has wholemeal for stodgy goodness, pumpkin as a nod to the increasingly pervading PSL flavour, crumble topping because we’re heading towards custard season and toffee apple to keep the 5th Novemberists happy.

Sparklin’ Parkin for bonfire night

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 30th October 2014

Mr Bland, who is a Yorkshire-man by birth, first introduced me to Parkin. In Yorkshire parkin is a Bonfire Night tradition and I can see why. The best way to describe it to those of us more southerly born is that it’s a really dense ginger cake. It is warming and sweet but the addition of oats and treacle create a depth of flavour and density of texture that is perfect for keeping the cold at bay on a cold November night. It’s also sturdy enough to be wrapped up and shoved in a coat pocket for the walk home!
