Welcome to the fourth #CookBlogShare of 2021. This week I'm showcasing some delicious sweet treats to tickle your tastebuds.
I'm excited to be guest hosting my first #CookBlogShare linky. Thank-you to regular hosts Sisley at Sew White and Karen at Lavender and Lovage for handing over the reins this week!
Sweet treats to beat the January Blues
There was a delicious array of recipes linked up to last week's post and because it's January, and we all need a bit of a pick me up (well I certainly do), I've decided to showcase a wonderful selection of sweet treats to get us through the January blues. We have cakes, muffins, cookies and buns as well as a few favourites from my blog Effortless Foodie
5 sweet treats from #CookBlogShare Week 3
Breakfast Muesli Muffins
Jacqui over at Only Crumbs Remain has linked up these healthy Breakfast Muesli Muffins made with wholemeal spelt flour. Perfect for breakfast on the go, or as a mid morning pick me up!
Apricot & Almond Flapjacks
These delicious Apricot and Almond Flapjacks from Cat over at Curly's Cooking are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside - just how a flapjack should be! My kids love flapjacks so I'll definitely be giving these a try at the weekend.
Pear and Apple Crumble Cake
This vegan pear and apple crumble cake from Family Friends and Food has a layer of tender vanilla sponge with cinnamon-spiced apples and pears, and a topping of scrumptious oaty crumble. Perfect with a cup of tea or why not serve warm as an easy dessert?
Whitby Lemon Buns
I couldn't resist including Karen's Whitby Lemon Buns in the round-up. Made using a sourdough starter, they are light and airy with plump sultanas inside them and a generous dollop of lemon icing on top. Who could resist one of these?
Last but by no means least these light and airy castagnole from Maicruz Avalos are deliciously soft on the inside and crisp on the outside. Castagnole (a traditional Italian dessert) are so called because their shape is reminiscent of a chestnut.

Lemon Curd Loaf Cake
This zingy lemon curd loaf cake is the perfect sweet pick me up! It’s fresh, moist and oh so moreish, you definitely won’t be able to stop at one slice! Serve for afternoon tea or as a quick and easy pudding with cream.
Chocolate Tiffin with Mini Eggs
A rich and delicious no-bake chocolate tiffin with mini eggs, the perfect chocolate treat for Easter, or any time of year for that matter! Crushed digestive biscuits, melted chocolate and sweet golden syrup encase the all-important Cadburys mini eggs in this decadent chocolate delight. Not for the faint-hearted, that’s for sure!
Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins
These light and fluffy peanut butter and banana muffins make a delicious and filling snack for kids, or a protein-packed grab and go breakfast option.

What a lovely selection of recipes! This little lot would definitely be a great antidote to the January blues... I'll take one of each please! Eb 🙂
So many lovely sweet treats for cold winter days. I'll definitely be trying some of these.
These all look delicious! We need some sweet treats at the moment to cheer ourselves up too.

Possibly the most mouth watering round up I've even seen (yum), thanks for hosting x
Cat | Curly's Cooking
I'm all about the sweet treats at the moment and have to limit myself on how often I can bake! Thanks for including my flapjacks 🙂
Your flapjacks are being made this weekend, they sound delicious!
Michelle - Lost in Food
So many great sweet ideas! Lots to add to my every growing list! Thanks for hosting!
Oh so many sweet, delicious recipes in this post and so honored you've post my Castagnole.
Really would love to try some and I am sure my family will agree 🙂
Thank you for this amazing round-up!
Oh my! I'm desperate to start tucking in now. Everything looks so very delicious. I'm on my last week of Healthy Veganuary, so I've been trying to stay away from the sweet stuff - with varying degrees of success.
Some lovely recipes there. I'm definitely going to try some of them!
