Introducing London Bakes A Beautiful Blog

I love finding new blogs, especially ones that are filled with beautiful photographs and wonderful recipes. Recently I discovered London Bakes, a blog written by Kathryn, an accountant that lives in London and documents her culinary and travel adventures.

London Bakes is filled with simple staged, inspiring images and tasty recipes. The Orange and Ginger Cookies served with a cup of tea in beautiful transfer ware and the Leek and Gruyere tart served with a spinach salad make me feel as if I am sitting down with a friend to a long chat or a delicious Saturday lunch.

And these Lemon Strawberry Sour Cream Cookies, conjure up images of a special day for my Valentine sweetie.

I am looking forward to trying these Bailey's and Chocolate Chip cookies

and this delectable Raspberry and Almond Olive Oil Cake.

In addition to her beautiful recipes( there are many savory ones also), Kathryn shares her adventures eating out and about in London. Her reviews are honest, unpaid, unsolicited and well written. If you are traveling to London for the Olympics you should take a look at a few of her reviews.

If you are a fan of food blogs, recipes, and of course food go over and check out London Bakes, I think you will really enjoy it! I will be trying a few of her recipes in the near future.

Have a great day!

  1. Gosh, thank you so much. I'm so touched that you like my site and thank you for all your lovely comments. It's really made my day!

  2. Good morning beautiful friend! Oh that almond OLIVE OIL CAKE sounds wonderful! I remember making an ORANGE WATER OLIVE OIL cake once and it was unbelievable. To join what you would think of only as savory with sweet was a surprise!!! Sending you wishes for a perfect day. Anita

    Sorry haven't been about much lately, have lost my muse, I think she's on holiday - bitch :-)

  8. Hi Elizabeth,

    Just discovered your fabulous blog through No Minimalist Here's Open House Party and I am THRILLED! Your Cinnamon Roll Muffins look delicious and can't wait to try them and also to take a longer look around (spotted a cinnamon cake, too!). I guess I've exposed my cinnamon obsession. Hope you'll drop by my place (I also linked up to the party, first time. It's amazing!).


  9. Thanks for the introduction to London Bakes. Everything looks delicious! I am headed there now.

  10. Looks gorgeous from just what you have posted here...I am intrigued, I will visit this inspiring blog...but now I am off to visit Jude (see you Jude in a few!).
