Treat Petite Round Up January 2017

Thanks to everyone for another month of great entries into Treat Petite. This lot of recipes has gotten 2017 off to a great start!

First off Kate, The Gluten Free Alchemist entered these Ginger and Pear Trifles made with ginger cake layered with homemade pear and brown sugar compote.

Next up was Kat, The Baking Explorer and Treat Petite co-host who made vegan friendly raspberry and coconut tarts. Ideal if you are following Veganuary.

Corina over at Searching for Spice made use of her new spiralizer to bring us sweet potato and chocolate chip cookies. A unique and delicious sounding combination of flavours.

Next Choclette, at Tin and Thyme had been using rice milk and incorporated it into these Vanilla Almond Cookies. Perfect with a cup of tea.

Charlotte in her Lively Kitchen made Caramel Cupcakes, using light brown sugar and caramel sauce. The swirl on top of these cupcakes just look so tempting.

Next was my entry, a bliss ball incorporating the flavours of hummingbird cake - that's pineapple, banana, coconut and cinnamon. These were a healthy treat which tasted quite sinful!

Angela at Only Crumbs Remain went all Black Forest on us and made chocolate and cherry cupcakes, which were vegan friendly as she too is taking part in Veganuary.

Shaheen at Allotment 2 Kitchen used dandelion honey and dried mango in her Dandelion Honey Marigold Mango Flapjacks. She mentions you can use any dried fruit you like in place of the mango and actually made a cranberry version too.

Katie at Feeding Boys made chutney sausage rolls, using chutney and sausage meat in puff pastry which she plaited to give a quirky looking sausage roll. These look very tempting.

Kate, The Gluten Free Alchemist also entered Pistachio, Lime and Olive Oil cake which was more of a traybake type cake, so qualified for Treat Petite. A blackcurrant drizzle was added to the cake which finished it off perfectly.

Lucy, at Baking Queen 74 made cinnamon and currant shortbread fingers. I have never thought of using cinnamon in shortbread and I know it's something I am going to have to try. These sound gorgeous.

And Lucy also entered her Ginger and Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. Using crystallised ginger, mixed peel and other dried fruits I know these cookies would go down a storm in our house.

Lastly Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousine whipped up a batch of chocolate biscotti, perfect with a cuppa after a walk in the cold January weather. These look great for dunking!

A big thanks to everyone for taking part and stayed tuned to The Baking Explorer for next month's Treat Petite.


  1. What a lovely round up! They all look delicious but I am especially tempted by Kate's pistachio lime and olive oil cake.

  2. Thank you so much for hosting and as always so many good recipes, but its Kate gingerbread trifle and lime cake that has me drooling the most. I had not realised that you could submit savoury treats too. If the theme is anything goes next month, then i know what I would like to share.

  3. Absolutely scrummy round up! I'm just lovin Kate's Pistachio Lime & Olive Oil cake - it looks soooo good!

  4. Thanks for a great round-up Stuart. Love the montage. Choclette's Vanilla-Almond Cookies sound very tempting!
    Re the montage..... do you use any particular software/app? I was trying to find a decent one the other day suitable for Mac and was really struggling to find anything! xx

    1. Microsoft Photo Draw Kate - an oldie, but a goodie!
