In an effort to get more creative in the kitchen, I thought I would start a new fun challenge for myself and others to join in with. Each month I’m going to set an ingredient or theme and bake something in accordance with that. I’m hoping it will get me out of my comfort zone, start to use the many many cookbooks that I own and share some great recipes with people! The idea is to post recipes during the month in line with the theme or the ingredient. You can create as many recipes as you want during the month and at the end, I will share my favourites (tag me on Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #OneMoreSliceChallenge)

Nothing says the start of summer more like big fat summer berries. You can get berries any time of the year but they just don’t taste the same when they are not in season. Can you get more quintessential than strawberries and cream on a warm summers day? You’ve also got wonderful raspberries, blueberries and blackberries as well and there are so many great recipes out there to have fun with.

If you wanted to have some inspiration for what to bake this month, here are some berry filled recipes to get you started…

A twist on a classic, these raspberry oaties look delicious.

This showstopping summer berry cake is a great way to use as many summer fruits as possible!

Have you ever roasted strawberries? It is absolutely divine. Try this roasted strawberry eton mess or why not make these cupcakes with roasted strawberry buttercream.

I have first-hand experience of how tasty this raspberry layer cake is – you absolutely need to bake it!

Can you get more quintessentially British than this strawberry and Pimms tart?

Blueberry muffins are a lovely summery treat and this recipe looks incredible.

Raspberry and pistachio profiteroles sounds YUM.

Eton Mess? Yes please!

How good does this strawberry french toast look!?

Vegan’s need not miss out. This raspberry bakewell looks amazing, as does this strawberry and pistachio bake which can be easily turned dairy-free!

My strawberry shortcake bars are vegan too!

For something different, why not try this raspberry and rose kulfi, a traditional Indian dessert?

This strawberry picnic cake sounds like a dream and looks so pretty.
