Childhood treats for grown-up tastes.
"Close your eyes and think of your favourite childhood treat. Maybe it's a bowl of crumble, a slab of chocolate cake, a chewy fruit pastille or a melting ice cream. Imagine how it looks and smells, the taste and texture, then let those senses transport you - to Sunday dinners with family and birthday parties with friends or days at the seaside, the air hot and sticky and the sand between your toes.
Homemade Memories is a collection of my favourite childhood recipes, packed with enough sugar-dusted memories to savour long after the last crumb has been cleared away."
In this, her debut cookbook, Kate Doran brings to life the recipes and stories that have made her blog thelittleloaf.com so popular. From Peanut Butter Jammie Dodgers and Peach Melba Baked Alaska to Peppermint Marshmallows, Triple Chocolate Caterpillar Cake and Pear and Pecan Treacle Tart, this is the ultimate collection of 100 classic childhood treats reinvented with an irresistible homemade twist.
