Porridge | A Sweet Muddle

Porridge: Yes please!

During the winter months, when the mercury levels take a sharp dive, a bowl of steamy, creamy porridge has to be one of the best ways to start the day.  Comfort food in it’s simplest of forms.  I’ve been enjoying my fair share of porridge this winter, and to keep things interesting, I’ve been playing […]

Banana raspberry bread | A Sweet Muddle

Banana raspberry bread

Banana bread is a firm favourite of mine.  It’s easy to whip up, a delight to eat fresh from the oven, and (almost) equally as delightful when toasted and served with a generous layer of butter.  Based on how regularly different variations of banana bread pop up in my Facebook and Bloglovin feeds, it’s clear […]

Blueberry smoothie | A Sweet Muddle

Blueberry smoothie

A bit over a month ago now I spent five days with a group of students and an outdoor education guide hiking a section of the Great Northern Walk along the Central Coast of NSW.  The trail took us through a diverse range of habitats from lush subtropical rainforests to sun scorched escarpments, where you […]

Pho | A Sweet Muddle

Shakshuka | A Sweet Muddle

Shakshuka

There are certain words that I simply love the sound of. Onomatopoeia. Mellifluous. Libellula.  They’re the literary equivalent of a hearty dish or full-bodied wine.  A mouthful of sound that is both a pleasure to say and hear.  Which conveniently leads me to today’s post… Shakshuka. Go on, say it out aloud.  Shak-shu-ka.  Don’t you […]

Guacamole

Guacamole

Happy Cinco de Mayo my friends!   You’ll have to forgive me for the rather short post today, but I couldn’t let the day pass us by without some sort of recognition to our Mexican friends who are celebrating a national holiday today either in person (or in spirit).  And what better than with a delicious […]

One of the most popular recipes I’ve shared with you on A Sweet Muddle so far is for a boiled chocolate cake, which just so happens to be the first cake I ever baked in my life.  This Lemon poppy seed cake which I’m sharing with you today was The Cake, which finally tempted me […]
