    Blarney Crumbles

    Blarney Crumbles. This was a new traybake for me. And even an internet search hasn’t managed to shed any light on where these come from or the origins of the name. But I can tell you that these Blarney Crumbles…

    Crunchy Chocolate Cakes

    Crunchy Chocolate Cakes. Or rather, Crunchy Chocolate Traybake. It’s a simple chocolate cake mix, sandwiched together by a crunchy, nutty layer. Fairly quick and easy to make, it’s a simple traybake. I used hazelnuts for my traybake as I think…
