This website is all about cheese, and there are many different types of cheeses to choose from. Some people like soft cheese, whilst others like hard cheeses. Soft cheeses can include Brie and Camembert and hard cheeses include those that have matured for a few weeks or even a number of years, including Cheddar, Parmesan and many uk regional cheeses such as Red Leicester, Double Gloucester etc.
Crumbly hard cheeses like Cheshire, Caerphilly, and Wensleydale are young matured cheeses. Blue cheese varieties contain a blue mould that is added at various stages of the cheese making process and include many of the traditional cheeses such as blue stilton, buxton blue, etc. As you can see there are hundreds if not thousands of UK and worldwide cheeses to choose from and love depending on your taste and preference.
Carrot & cream cheese cupcakes
How to prepare and cook :
zest 1 orange
150ml sunflower oil
200g carrots, grated
175g brown sugar
200g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp mixed spice

Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with cases.
In a mixing bowl, mix the sugar, flour, bicarbonate of soda, mixed spice and orange zest together. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and oil, then stir into the dry ingredients with the grated carrot. Divide the mixture between the cases and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool them on a wire rack before icing.
For the icing on your cupcakes, beat the butter until really soft, then beat in the soft cheese, icing sugar and vanilla. Use a palette or knife to swirl the icing on top of the cupcakes.
