Stars create the perfect recipes for Guide Dogs Week 2015!

07 Oct 2015

Two star cooks, Nancy Birtwhistle, and Alex Hollywood have lit up their kitchens with glowing new recipes for Guide Dogs Week 2015.

Great British Bake Off 2014 winner, Nancy, has combined her love of dogs and baking to create her very own mouth-watering recipe - ‘Let’s Glow Choc Chip Cupcakes’, while Alex, author of My Busy Kitchen, has come up with a delicious new recipe for ‘Vanilla Neon Labrador Cookies which are sure to get tails wagging and tummies rumbling everywhere.

The recipes are to support Guide Dogs Week, taking place from 3 – 11 October. This year’s theme is 'Let’s Glow', in tribute to the famous neon flash on the guide dog harness and these scrumptious cookies will be a perfect way to join in. Whether you’re baking them for one of the hundreds of ‘Let’s Glow’ events happening across the UK or just for fun, there’s no better way to celebrate the life changing work of the charity, Guide Dogs.

Nancy said: “Many know of my love of baking after I won the Great British Bake Off but less people are aware of my passion for dogs and dog training. I've always been an admirer of the charity Guide Dogs and the amazing work they do to help people with sight loss. I hope you'll join me in holding a Let's Glow bake sale or party during Guide Dogs Week (3-11 October). My recipe for 'Let's Glow Choc Chip Cupcakes' is bound to be a winner with your guests”.

Alex added: “If you love cooking - and dogs - like me, then why not hold a Let’s Glow bake sale during Guide Dogs Week (3-11 October) and serve up some of my delicious neon Labrador cookies? You will be thrilled at helping a fantastic cause”.

Guide Dogs Week aims to meet its biggest ever fundraising target of £1million this year, and will help the charity continue its life-changing work making sure that people in the UK who lose their sight don't lose their freedom as well.
