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 […]

Rhubarb and rose fool

Rhubarb and rose fool

I love the simplicity of a fool. If you’ve got some cream in your fridge and almost any kind of fruit then you’re pretty much there as far as ingredients go. It’s very much a fuss-free dessert. But just because it’s quick and easy doesn’t […]

Mexican hot chocolate puddings

Mexican hot chocolate puddings

I keep holding my breath and hoping for the spring weather but the rain and chilly winds keep laughing in my face! I’m trying to make the most of it by creating some delicious, warming, indulgent puddings. These little beauties are just fabulous. Fluffy chocolate […]

Apricot, cardamom and honey ice cream (no-churn)

Apricot, cardamom and honey ice cream (no-churn)

These are flavours which are just made to go together. They’re fragrant and exotic and generally a delicious combination. Cardamom is one of my favourite spices. I do love a no-churn ice cream recipe too, they’re always so quick and easy to whip up (no […]

No-churn tiramisu ice cream

No-churn tiramisu ice cream

I wonder how many different incarnations of tiramisu I can post on here? I think this is the fourth one but I’m sure I can I think of some more variations to keep Mr Colonial Cravings happy. This one’s so quick and easy though I […]

Ginger, gin and rhubarb panna cotta

Ginger, gin and rhubarb panna cotta

Hooray for rhubarb season! I love it when these vibrant pink spears start to make an appearance. I’ve even got a couple poking through on the plant in my garden. They’re so cheery amidst all the gloom and grey of late winter. Panna cotta is […]

Black forest ice cream (no-churn)

Black forest ice cream (no-churn)

I’ve never really got on with chocolate ice cream. I’ve always thought that it ruins both chocolate and ice cream, it never seems to be as satisfying as pure chocolate or as refreshing as other ice creams. But then I thought maybe I just don’t […]

Whisky and raspberry cranachan trifle

Whisky and raspberry cranachan trifle

This beauty is what I’m offering up for this years Burns Night pudding. I know cranachan is pretty much just trifle anyway but when I was recently asked for a trifle recipe this is what sprang to mind and it feels like a celebration of […]

Clementine butterscotch puddings

Clementine butterscotch puddings

Soft, fluffy sponge puddings scented with sweet clementines and liberally dowsed in a rich and tangy clementine butterscotch sauce. Now doesn’t that sound good on a chilly winter evening? And these really are good! They aren’t as rich as sticky toffee pudding and they’re much […]
