The first bake on our list is this delicious recipe for Nutella Popcorn. This recipe is really simple and will make the perfect addition to any firework display. It is made by combining corn syrup, brown sugar, kosher salt, butter, Nutella, vanilla extract and baking soda to create a delicious chocolatey glaze which can be added to popcorn and then baked.


Pumpkin Muffins

Although Pumpkins are traditionally associated with Halloween, they are super autumnal and the flavour goes perfectly in so many bakes this time of year. This recipe for pumpkin muffins is made from a spongey pumpkin cupcake base and then topped with a buttery crumble as well as cinnamon icing.

Why not add some Baking Time Club Vegan Galactic Gatsby sprinkles on top of these:
