Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!


Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.


I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Orange and Nectarine Upside Down Loaf Cake

It's that time of year where peaches and nectarines are EVERYWHERE. I love this time of year, I can safely say a good yellow flesh nectarine is in my top three favourite fruits.


2 Nectarines

2tbs Butter (Melted)

2tbs Brown Sugar

200g Butter

200g Caster Sugar

3 Large Eggs

220g Self Raising Flour

3tbs Milk

3tsp Orange Essence (You could also use Vanilla or fresh orange zest from 1 large orange)


- Preheat the oven to 180c/350f.

- Using a sharp knife, run it all the way around the nectarine. Then pull/twist apart and slice.

- Melt the 2tbs of butter and pour into the base of a loaf tin. Then sprinkle the 2tbs of brown sugar over the butter.

- You can be creative here and lay the nectarines in a fancy way. Lay the nectarine slices over the base and leave to one side.

- Now, in a mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar and cream together.

- Add the eggs one at a time and mix.

- Then sift in the flour a little at a time and loosen the mixture with the milk.

- Add the essence and mix to combine.

- Pour over the nectarines and spread out evenly.

- Bake in the oven to 30-35 minutes. Check after 30 minutes by placing a skewer into the centre and checking it comes out clean.
