Recipe: Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Slice

After a long time without doing pretty much any baking I’ve gotten back into the swing of things lately and this raspberry white chocolate cheesecake slice is one of my new favourites! It’s so delicious plus it’s both easy to prepare and can be made in advance – how’s that for perfect!


Recipe: Berry Mint Icy Poles

Phew, we’ve made it to the last Meatless Monday linkup for the year! I can’t wait to see what you’ve all been cooking in the lead-up to Christmas!

With Summer upon us again it was definitely time to pull out the ol’ icy pole moulds and get creating. For me it’s hard to beat berries as the perfect summer treat (although pineapple comes in a very close second!) and with my mint plant going berserk on my balcony I decided a combination of the two was in order. Behold, my deliciously refreshing berry mint icy poles!


Recipe: Raspberry & Nectarine Tea Cake

If you follow I Spy Plum Pie on facebook or instagram you might have noticed I had some fairly exciting news over the weekend – I bought my first apartment! I bought at auction which was extremely nerve-wracking, but thankfully it all worked out in the end! I’m super excited, and I’m sure the next 60 days will fly by until I get the keys in my hot little hands!


How To: Flavoured Cucumber Water

I’ve been a big water drinker since I was a kid – we didn’t have much in the way of fizzy drinks or even cordial at home, it was always water with dinner and because I did a lot of singing when I was younger I got into the habit of carrying a water bottle around pretty early on. These days I keep a big bottle on my desk at work which I refill multiple times throughout the day, however I often find myself not drinking enough water on the weekend as I get busy and distracted, until I find myself with a headache!


Recipe: Banana Raspberry Bread

Living with 3 housemates can sometimes make it difficult to keep track of all the food in our fridge and freezer. We each have a section of our pantry and also share staples like spices, oils and sauces but given the small size of particularly our freezer sometimes things can disappear into the depths and be forgotten about. We recently did a huge clean out and discovered a rather large stash of bananas in the freezer (which I’ve been working my way through in smoothies!) so when I ended up with some overripe bananas I knew I couldn’t add them to the freezer pile so decided banana bread was required instead!

I usually make banana walnut bread in these situations but decided to mix things up a bit, and thanks to discovering additional raspberries in the freezer decided this was the go instead. I’m very glad I did as it was delicious – moist and sweet from the bananas with a nice tart bite from the raspberries. Perfect with a cup of tea and a flick through the newspaper!
