Bake Off winner and all-round baking superstar, Nadiya Hussain, is no stranger to creating show-stopping cakes and bakes fit to wow the most demanding of judges. But, as Nadiya herself emphasises, home baking should be about love, fun and generosity, a way to relax and embrace the comfort of the kitchen. Ease and simplicity lie at the heart of all Nadiya’s recipes, and we particularly love her ability to conjure up beautiful, flavour-packed bakes that can easily be recreated at home. Here is our pick of Nadiya’s easiest baking recipes, from her unique twist on rocky road to creamy baked cheesecakes. These accessible recipes guarantee stress-free baking, whatever the occasion.
This riff on rocky road from Nadiya Bakes is made with white and milk chocolate, caramel sweets, dried fruit, and salted pistachios. Strictly speaking it’s a no-bake, as it only needs time to set in the fridge, but it’s just as addictive as any of Nadiya’s oven-baked creations.
