Baking Round-up: Back to school

Welcome once again to the Baking Round-Up. This month the theme is back to school. I’ve pulled together a lovely selection of recipes that should provide plenty of inspiration for those of you who make packed lunches. Plus, there are some gorgeous baking recipes that make ideal after school snacks and treats, that should definitely please the kids.

The Bake Off is back

Before we begin, let’s talk Bake Off.  I’m thrilled The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens.  I admit, I was some what distraught at the prospect of a new line up!  Without Mary, the queen of cakes herself and the comical banter of Mel & Sue, I wasn’t sure that the show could survive.  However, I’m delighted that the show has retained its magic, and keeping Paul has ensured that.  As for Prue, Sandi and Noel, I think they’re doing a pretty good job.  What do you think?

Back to school bakes 

Searching for Spice has a great recipe for Date and Banana Oaty Bars, which not only look delicious but should keep the kids happy until dinner time.  Whilst Baking with Granny has come up with a classic recipe for Flapjacks, that sounds simply divine. With blackberries in season right now, it’s the perfect opportunity add them to your home bakes. Intolerant Gourmand has done just that with these scrumptious Dairy-free & Gluten-Free Blackberry Flapjacks. Baking Queen 74 has created this yummy looking Blackberry Oaty Traybake, that I know my children would love.

If your family adore peanut butter then these Chocolate & Peanut Butter Sandwiched Cookies from Only Crumbs Remain will go down a treat. Wild Mama Wild Tribe has a delicious recipe for an Awesome Gluten Free Autumn Apple Cake. Whilst Eats Amazing has created the perfect solution to those packed lunch woes with these Ham & Cheese Savoury Muffins, a brilliant alternative to sandwiches.

The theme for the baking round-up next month has to be Autumn. With the weather feeling just a little bit chilly I’d love to see cosy autumnal bakes and why not share your spooky Halloween inspired bakes too. I don’t mind whether your baking recipes are sweet or savoury, it’s up to you. Please join in by adding your recipe to the linky below or email me at
