Easy brioche recipe

How to make easy brioche rolls on feedingboys.co.uk

Brioche to me is one of those luxuries best saved for when you’re in France on holiday and want a freshly baked breakfast treat, or less romantically, the little sweet individually packed rolls that are perfect car fodder for the kids to keep them quiet on long journeys. Have I ever made my own? I […]

Breakfast Club May: Bakes

Breakfast Club May: Bakes

I’m delighted to be hosting this month’s Breakfast Club – a blogging event thought up by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours to celebrate the first meal of the day. It’s a good excuse to think of something a bit more exciting than tea and toast and share it with us here. This month’s theme is […]

Sore throat friendly smoothies

Berry breakfast smoothie

Half term was somewhat blighted by illness in the Feeding Boys house, and for two hideous days my throat was so sore I couldn’t swallow proper food. Now that’s just miserable. End of. But to try and get some nutrition into my germ-ridden self I whizzed up some of these breakfast smoothies in the blender. […]

Banana, sultana and almond loaf

banana sultana loaf cake

Manky banana alert – why can’t we ever get through the damned things? No matter how green they are when I buy them they ripen in an instant – infuriating. Well only slightly coz it’s always an excuse to bake a cake with them. I’d put a recipe for Banana and Date loaf from Sian over […]

Squidgy banana blondies

Banana Blondies

Reading this month’s Sainsbury’s Mag, I came across a massive feature on some of Dan Lepard’s amazing looking cakes with enormous glossy pictures of the most tempting array of goodies I’ve seen in quite a while.

Facing a long journey to France with the boys in the car is a daunting prospect. While Sam is happy to sit and watch DVDs on his little screen, Arlo cannot bear being in the car for very long and bellows in THE most distressing way. When you’re trapped in a fast moving vehicle with […]

Indulgent Breakfast Granola

Having bought some oats in already to make flapjacks, I decided to use them up by rustling up some home-made granola. What a quick and satisfying little number this is by the way! I’d never really thought to make my own cereal, and always thought it sounded a bit poncey, but my god was I […]

After a Friday evening end-of-the-week meltdown from Sam that set us all on edge, I felt the need to improve the atmosphere and celebrate the opening morning of bank holiday weeeeeeekend with a batch of pancakes for breakfast.
