Plum & cinnamon cobbler

Plum & cinnamon cobbler

Yeah! You did it! You made it through January. I don’t know about you but my January was 178 days long and I’m pretty sure that it rained every day. But it’s February now which means that it won’t be long before we can start […]

Cranberry clementine panna cotta

Cranberry clementine panna cotta

This is such a classic Christmas combination. Tart cranberries and sweet fragrant orange combined with all the luxury and indulgence we deserve at this time of year. Panna cotta is also a fantastic dessert for the festive season, when we’re all so busy and could […]

Chocolate and cherry croissant bread and butter pudding.

Chocolate and cherry croissant bread and butter pudding.

If anyone can think of a catchier name for this then I would love to hear it. It is a bit of a mouthful, no pun intended. I’ve met quite a few Americans who find the fact that we Brits often refer to dessert as […]

Blackcurrant and clotted cream cheesecake

Blackcurrant and clotted cream cheesecake

When I was little a battle would be waged every summer in our garden between my mum and the resident blackbirds over who was going to get to the blackcurrants first once they reached peak ripeness. On the occasions when my mum won the war […]

Mango and passion fruit tarts

Mango and passion fruit tarts

Who says custard has to be vanilla flavoured? Don’t get me wrong, I love a good rich vanilla custard but I also like a change every now and again. Passion fruit works really well in these, it has a nice sharp tang to cut through […]

Moelleux aux chocolat

Moelleux aux chocolat

Sometimes you just need a slice of rich gooey chocolate cake. A moelleux isn’t some namby-pamby light, fluffy sponge adorned with frosting. It’s a serious chocolate hit. Dense and fudgy and a little bit gooey in the middle, almost to the point of melting. It’s […]

Banana rum cheesecake

Banana rum cheesecake

I started off wanting to make a Banoffee cheesecake but I can be a bit funny about bananas. I’ll only eat them when they’re slightly under-ripe you see, when they’re still a touch green at the ends. The moment a single brown spot appears on […]

Merveilleux

Merveilleux

If you follow any of my social media accounts then you probably know that I went on a little trip to Lille in France a few weeks ago. Lille has some fantastic restaurants (my main motivation for going) and it’s also home to these little […]

Lemon cheesecake ice cream (no-churn)

Lemon cheesecake ice cream (no-churn)

Doesn’t this just look like the perfect refreshing treat for a sunny day? Rich creamy cheesecake flavoured ice cream muddled with a tangy swirl of zesty lemon curd and studded with crunchy nuggets of biscuit. Who could resist diving straight into the tub? You can […]

Mini Egg cheesecakes

Mini Egg cheesecakes

It appears that cheesecake isn’t quite indulgent enough for me, I’ve had to top it with rich chocolate ganache and cute little mini eggs too. I’ve wanted to do a recipe on here using mini eggs but I’ve always struggled to find a brand that […]
