Breakfast & Brunch, Desserts, Recipes / 08.06.2020

As the mornings get colder and darker, I've got long, lazy brunches on my mind. Since we can't go to our fave restaurant for this luxury, I suggest spoiling yourself at home! These crispy, puffed pancakes topped with fresh banana and boozy rum butterscotch sauce make for a decadent brunch if ever there was one. Even better if you can convince someone to serve you brekkie in bed! Dutch baby pancakes are similar to Yorkshire puddings in that they contain no raising agent, yet puff up beautifully in the oven. Steam is what causes them to rise, so it's important to...

Sponsored. Figs are in season right now and I just love using them in desserts! Their beautiful purple skin and crimson flesh look so striking and luscious. Ripe figs have a sweet and nutty flavour that pairs particularly well with creamy, tangy Danone Nutriday Double Cream Plain Yoghurt. Walnuts and figs also go wonderfully together, so I combined all three to make a beautiful, seasonal dessert. Since the yoghurt is unsweetened, a touch of honey really brings this dessert to life. Feel free to adjust the amount of honey to taste! *For a lighter dessert or breakfast parfait, omit the cream from the...

Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 25.05.2020

I love making cookie bars! With a texture that lies somewhere between a brownie and a cookie, they are deliciously soft and chewy with a crisp crust. Another reason I love them is they are fair bit quicker to make than cookies, as there is no dough-chilling or rolling required. Simply press the mixture into a pan and bake! These particular cookie bars are flavoured with creamy peanut butter and loaded with chocolate chips. Eat them warm with ice cream for dessert, or snack on them just as they are. There really is no time of day that's not ideal...

I'm sure you've heard about the Dalgona Coffee craze that took TikTok by storm earlier this year. Well, I'm here to tell you about the next internet food craze - pancake cereal! It's not hard to see why this genius idea is going viral on social media - I mean, eating mini little golden crunchy pancakes with a spoon, covered in your favourite topping? Yes please! Whether you choose to pour milk over them and eat them like cereal, or add a knob of butter and a generous drizzle of syrup and eat them like pancakes is entirely up to you! Either...

I've been waiting somewhat impatiently for ruby grapefruits to come into season. Not only is their beautiful red flesh a delight to look at, but their zesty and slightly bitter flavour is unlike any other fruit. Grapefruits work wonderfully in desserts, where that refreshing citrus flavour offsets both the sweetness and richness that could otherwise be cloying. There's no question that gin and grapefruit work well together in cocktails, and the same is true for this cheesecake! Although adding it is technically optional, a touch of gin really brings this cheesecake to life and makes it something special. A neutral...

Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights, Recipes / 25.04.2020

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 07.04.2020

Sponsored According to a recent poll I ran on Instagram, many of us are barely aware that Easter is just a few days away! With all the goings-on in the world right now, it’s fair to say that most of us have been a bit distracted, and feeling a tad overwhelmed. So I decided to bring you all an extra-cheerful Easter treat – these Easter Custard Blondies made with Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard! It’s pretty hard to be sad when you’re looking at these gorgeous bright colours… and once you take a bite of one, I have no doubt it will bring...

From a foodie point of view, Easter is definitely my favourite holiday. Who wouldn't love a holiday that involves large amounts of chocolate and spicy hot cross buns! For someone who loves to bake like me, I never have a shortage of ideas around this time of year. Rocky road may not be the most sophisticated of these ideas, however, I can guarantee you it will bring a smile to even the grumpiest of faces! The variety of textures is what makes rocky road so delicious - a bit of crunch, a bit of marshmallowy softness, crisp sugary shells and lots...

Sponsored Have you ever tasted a soufflé? These gorgeously puffy little cakes are slightly crisp on the outside and light and mousse-like on the inside. They can be sweet or savoury, and are made by folding whipped egg whites and a flavour component (e.g. fruit pulp, melted chocolate, cheese etc) into a custard-like base. If you thought you couldn’t recreate this classic French dessert at home, think again! I’ve recently discovered an incredible shortcut that will make soufflé-baking a cinch. By using Danone Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard as your base, you need only add a little fruit purée, fold in some meringue and voila! Not...

Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 06.03.2020

These easy mini lemon tarts came about on one of those really manic days. I was short on time but had to prepare some snacks for book club. The savouries were sorted, but knowing my friends would be gobsmacked if I didn't serve any sweet treats I frantically searched through my fridge and freezer for some short-cut ingredients. Happily, I found some leftover pastry in the freezer (I always make a double batch for this very reason!), and a jar of home-made lemon curd in the fridge. Problem solved! In less than 30 minutes, I had cut out and...
