21. Nanaimo Bars

Named after the city of Nanaimo on British Columbia’s Vancouver Island, this chocolate wafer crumb-crusted and custard-filled treat has been an iconic staple in Canadian households since the mid-1950s. With our own twist on the classic, toasted almonds add nutty flavor and crunch while the flaked sea salt cuts through its oh-so-rich decadence.

Apple Maple Tart

22. Apple-Maple Tart

Set in our buttery Pâte Brisée crust and garnished with candied apple slices, this Apple Maple Tart is simple yet refined and even tastier when topped with the remaining reduced maple syrup. 

Savory Monkey Bread

23. Herb and Cheese Monkey Bread

Our monkey bread is a savory twist on the classically sweet crowd pleaser with four different flavors all baked into the same loaf. Your crew can pick around to eat their favorite or mix and match bites of all of them.


  1. OMG. Your British baking edition (Jan/Feb 2018) hooked me in. And my sister. And my daughter in law. Now I’ve found your website with recipes while looking for Brian’s Biscuit! Someone stab my eyes out! Can’t remember last time I was this overwhelmed by such treasures! And the quality photography? Wow. I’m in trouble.

  2. I so wish I could afford your magazine!! I love the website and the magazines look fantastic, but I may need to move soon and there is no way it fits into my extremely tight budget. However, I look forward to going into the website now and again and maybe finding something I could make from scratch with my grandchild, Vincent as he gets older.
    Thanks so much!

  3. I love your magazine, but often the ingredients are difficult to find or expensive. Vanilla beans or vanilla sugar are just out of my budget and your never give alternatives for those of us that cannot afford expensive ingredients. I have been baking for many years and look forward to challenges in recipes. Maybe you can consider giving us alternatives or using easy to find/less expensive ingredients in the first place. I have gone on line to Amazon for some of the ingredients and WOW, I couldn’t afford vanilla sugar to use in those quantities. Thanks for listening.

  4. I bought the magazine and would like to add a recipe to my Paprika recipe app. The recipe is very lengthy to manually add. Maybe when the magazine is a couple months old I’ll be able to download ❤️ Made the Triple-Layer Strawberry Pound Cake. Looks wonderful, will taste it tomorrow at my granddaughters birthday.
