CookBlogShare 2017 Week 33 - Plus 4 Deliciously Tempting Bakes

Hello and welcome to week 33 of #CookBlogShare!

I hope you are all having a lovely summer break so far. Last week we ventured on our first camping trip which, up until we had 36 hours of non stop rain, we thoroughly enjoyed. I have to admit that my favourite part of the trip was experimenting with camping meals. After having some successful meals I have some lovely recipes to share over the next couple of weeks and plenty of ideas floating around my head! Here is a little taster of what is coming!

Anyway now onto CookBlogShare. Last week the linky was hosted by Jacqui at Recipes Made Easy who shared a delicious round up of pork and bacon recipes. If you missed them pop over and take a look. At the moment I have definitely got a sweet tooth and am loving bakes, so it was no surprise that, for me, the sweet bakes stood out. Here are my 4 favourite bakes from week 32 of #CookBlogShare...

I simply adore lemon and any citrus fruits in bakes. They add such a mouthwatering tang to bakes that I cannot resist. So it was not surprising that these Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Curd Filling from The Baking Explorer immediately stood out. These decadent little buns are the perfect cupcake for afternoon tea!

The following recipe is both dairy free and vegan. These Jammy Shortbread Crumble Cups from The Peachick's Bakery are the perfect combination of tart and crumble pudding. During a rainy day Midge made these with her daughter and I do not know how she managed to keep some by to photograph, they would fly off the plate here!

I love a recipe which adds some hidden veg and The Gluten Free Alchemist has used one of my favourite vegetables in her Cacao-Courgette Breakfast Cake! Surely if a bake includes a vegetable it is good for you so I would certainly welcome a slice of this at breakfast, lunch or dinner, in fact, at any time of day!

Last but not least is a classic cake that always wins me over! Jo's Kitchen shared her Coombe Mill Lemon Drizzle Cake. This cake has been named after Coombe Mill as Jo's boys helped to collect the eggs that were used to bake this iconic bake!

Now on to this weeks linky. But first I would like to just recap some of the linky "rules". I like to think of CookBlogShare as a lovely, relaxed linky but there are a few points we do ask you to follow.
