...and I 'm OBSESSED with baking.

 

I’m not a professional chef, I don’t run a cake shop, and I’ve never appeared on The Great British Bake Off – although I wish all three of those things were true.

 

What I am is completely mad about cooking, baking, eating, writing and thinking about food.

 

I came across the weird and wonderful world of Three Ingredient Baking back in 2013 and spent a couple of years toiling away in my pea-sized kitchen in South-East London, trying to come up with some recipes of my own. 

My recipe book, Three Ingredient Baking, was published by Penguin in 2018, and my second, Six-Minute Showstoppers, ( all about creating delicious, showstopping dishes in the time it takes to boil an egg) came out in the middle of the pandemic in 2020. Not ideal timing, but hey, at least baking had never been more popular!

When I'm not baking, I work as a freelance feature writer for national newspapers and magazines, writing about everything from new-fangled kitchen gadgets to people who keep pet goats. You can find my professional website here.

 

In 2015, I compiled and edited How to Jug a Hare: The Telegraph Book of the Kitchen.

 

I grew up in Northern Ireland, studied in Cambridge, spent a year in Madrid and moved from London to rural Suffolk in 2021. One day, I dream of opening a tea shop selling freshly-baked cakes, scones and biscuits. I hope you'll come and visit.

My name is Sarah...

THE BAKER

Three foodie facts about me...

1

My food hell is marzipan. And liquorice and fennel and anything else that tastes even slightly like almonds

2

I once baked 339 traybakes in a single weekend (for charity, not just fun) and lived to tell the tale

3

The scariest thing I've ever done is bake a cake for HRH Mary Berry (and she lived to tell the tale)
