If I Knew You Were Coming Baking Kits Giveaway


If I Knew You Were Coming Baking Kits are a subscription service that deliver a delicious recipe and the required dry ingredients by post. You can sign up for 3, 6 or 12 months and they will send you sweet treats to make at home like muffins, cookies and brownies. The name of the company comes from the song 'If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake' by Eileen Barton and I think these boxes are very handy to have around for a sudden sweet craving, or an unexpected visitor as you can whip up the tasty treats in no time! I was sent the White Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies kit to try out.


When the box arrived I opened it up and found inside a recipe card for the cookies, a full list of ingredients and allergens, the dry ingredients for the cookies - sugar, flour, white chocolate chips and dried cranberries - and some vanilla extract.


The only fresh ingredients I had to add was some butter and egg. I started by combining the sugar mix with butter. The muscovado sugar smelt really nice and I could tell it was good quality.


I added the egg. The recipe only called for 1/2 an egg which was probably my only dislike as I hate wasting things, although it did say you could use a whole egg, but the cookies would have a more cakey texture. So that was good to know.


I added the flour then the white choc chips and cranberries. All of the ingredient sachets were really easy to open and I was impressed with the amount of choc chips and cranberries, it was a very generous amount.


I seperated the dough into eight and put the balls onto lined baking trays.


I baked them on 170C for around 15 mins until they were golden brown around the edges. I left them to cool.


The cookies were really delicious and packed with tasty cranberries and white chocolate chips. I really enjoyed them and they were an easy and quick tasty treat to make.
