Maple, Cinnamon & Raisin Buns

These are a slight cross between a pain aux raisin and a Chelsea bun. They are a perfect winter treat with a good cup of coffee. If you can find the larger, sticky flame raisins they have a more intense flavour.

Crispy Chickpea Cakes

These chickpea cakes are delicious. I pondered what to call them as they are not a cake as such, but they are slightly gooey and incredibly moreish, so I thought they are like cake in that respect. Mole originates from Mexico and generally means a thick, spicy sauce. This one is almost like a pesto.
