AlphaBakes "F" Roundup


Hi everyone. Welcome to the final AlphaBakes round up for now. If you missed the announcement at the beginning of May, we are taking a break from AlphaBakes for a while. We've kept it going for 52 months which is over 4 years and in that time we've managed to run through the alphabet twice! Thank you to everyone who has participated in AlphaBakes through the years and we hope to be back in the future. In the meantime, sit back and relax as we go through the fanfastic final "F" entries for this month. 

Suelle from Mainly Baking baked a chunky fig, apricot and prune cake. It's a river cottage recipe which she found whilst searching for a recipe with dried figs. It turned out to be a lovely fruit cake with spice and citrus notes. 


Caroline from Caroline Makes baked Ferrero Rocher cupcakes using Ferrero chocolates that she received from a neighbour at Christmas. She adapted my recipe (which was also adapted from someone else!) and made a few changes which resulted in a beautiful and delicious cupcake. I love the chocolate shot on top. 


Kate from The Gluten Free Alchemist brings a savoury twist to our round up with a delicious sounding Japanese Fried Tofu with egg, spring onion and bonito flakes. Sadly she is going through a sudden bereavement but has managed to find the time and effort to create a delicious and nutrient packed meal. The recipe is inspired by her time in Japan where she was introduced to a version of this dish by Japanese friends. 


Caroline from Caroline Makes is back with an M&M chocolate birthday cake. She baked a chocolate birthday cake for her fiance and had an extra layer of cake which she used to create another chocolate cake. It has chocolate buttercream icing and chocolate fingers around the cake and a sea of M&M's on top. I'm pretty sure there were no leftovers from this! 


Next is Stuart from Cakeyboi with his Brownie Batter Swirled Cookie Dough Fudge. He combined cookie dough fudge with brownie batter fudge and added some chocolate chips just before serving. As you can imagine they are quite rich but I'm pretty sure I'd find it hard to stop at just one of these! 


Last but not least is my own Chocolate Fudge Cake. It's a Mary Berry recipe and it was quick and simple to put together with great results. The cake was light, moist and chocolatey and the ganache was absolutely divine. 



That's the end of the "F" round up and AlphaBakes for now. Hope to see you again soon!

  1. Wow has it really been four years?! It has been an honour and a pleasure hosting Alphabakes with you, Mrs Bakingaddict - and how much has changed in our lives since then! Hopefully we will be back with this challenge - or maybe something else - in future but it's time for us to take a well earned break (in my case my immediate plans are the last 2 weeks of wedding planning then a honeymoon!). Thanks to everyone who has participated over the years, we've seen some great recipes and ideas and it's been a lot of fun!

    1. I can't believe it's been over 4 years! Time really flies when you're having fun and yes so much has changed over the years. You've been a brilliant co-host and I hope we are back with something else in the future.

  5. Sorry to hear it is the last of the Alphabakes - I have enjoyed it though I haven't managed many challenges lately - did look out for recipes for this one but didn't manage it! Always interesting to see the round ups - thanks to you and caroline for all the work you have put into the challenge

  6. Oh no, I haven't been keeping up and had no idea it was finishing. I was just coming over to find out what this month's letter was and am now wishing I'd done something for F. Thank you both so much for hosting this fun challenge for so long. It's really quite astonishing how fast the time flies. A nice figgy fudgy round-up to end with :)
