Boozy Baking With Craft56°

  1. Boozy Baking with Craft56° – Wester Spiced Rum & Ginger Loaf

    Like most people, during lockdown we’re finding as many ways as we can to use pantry ingredients in fun and tasty ways. Having (mostly) mastered scones, banana bread & cinnamon rolls, it was time for a new challenge!

    Having a rummage in the baking cupboard, all set for pushing outside my comfort zone, I decided it was time to make a loaf - a spiced loaf with ginger and some Wester Rum. Starting mixing away before checking if I had a loaf tin (I did not), so it became a loaf-cake.

    Boozy Baking With Craft56

    One of my favourite things about spiced loaves is how easy they are, the recipe can be amended for whatever you’re looking to use or what you have in the back of the cupboard. Providing you have some form of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice), flour, baking soda, butter and rum, you can make

  2. Boozy Baking with Craft56° – Biggar Gin & Lemon Scones

    Like most, during the lockdown; we’re finding ways to get creative with our baking. We levelled up some plain scones with the addition of gin and lemon – making an afternoon tea staple even more exciting!

    Boozy Baking With Craft56

    Family recipes can be easily altered to include your favourite ingredients – for some this might be the addition of dried fruit, fresh fruit, nuts or chocolate but in true Craft56 fashion, we added gin. Biggar Gin uses citrus peel as a botanical so this was the gin of choice!

  7. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Gin, Tonic & Orange Cupcakes

    With the hints of an Indian Summer we've been experiencing in Glasgow this week the next in our Boozy Baking series saw us attempt some refreshing Gin, Tonic & Orange cupcakes.

    Boozy Baking with Craft56

    We used a combination of Ellis No.3 Butterfly Pea Gin and Cushiedoos quinine-free Scottish Tonic Water to make our cupcakes. We love the deep, earthy floral tones in the gin which complements orange well. As Cushiedoos tonic is quinine-free it's not as bitter as other botanicals so knew it would also work well in the recipe.

  8. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Spiced Rum & Raisin Cookies

    It’s been a long time but the return of the Great British Bake Off this week has inspired us to get back into the kitchen and get some boozy baking done!

    Boozy Baking with Craft56

    It’s hardly a showstopper but we thought we’d ease ourselves back into it with some Spiced Rum & Raisin Cookies.

    We decided to go with Wester Spiced Rum as we love the full-bodied flavour of the spices, citrus zests and vanilla in it.

  9. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Halloween Special

    Our boozy bake this month is the perfect recipe to make you feel warm inside on a cold, dark winter night. What's more, our choice of gin was inspired by Halloween too!

    Boozy Bakin with Craft56

    We've baked a Spiced Plum and Rhubarb Gin cake using Solway Spirits' Rhubarb Crumble Gin. We love the Rhubarb Crumble Gin (we normally drink with ginger ale) as it's as refreshing as it is warming and perfect for a cosy night in front of the fire. In addition, with it also being Halloween, we couldn't see past using a Solway Spirits gin given the eerie, gothic label design on the bottle.
