Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 25.05.2017

All the lovely seasonal fruit that becomes available as the seasons change is a great inspiration for my baking. At this time of year it's the plums and pears that catch my eye. A few weeks ago we were having a large group of friends around and I needed a relatively light dessert to feed a crowd, that could be prepared in advance. This Pear and Hazelnut Tart fit the bill. The crisp pastry, the creamy, nutty filling and the sweet pears complement eachother perfectly. It's a stunning dish to present, and nice and easy to serve too! A note on puff pastry....

Autumn is here! I love this time of year - the crimson and gold trees and crunchy carpets of leaves on the streets. It also means it's dark when the alarm clock goes off in the mornings, which can make it a bit of an effort to get out of bed. So why not reward yourself with this delicious Apple Crumble granola?

Add milk or yoghurt for a delicious breakfast, or sprinkle over ice cream or custard for a quick...

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance which is celebrated every year on 25 April - the anniversary of the Anzac's landing at Gallipoli, in Turkey during World War I. Anzac biscuits contain no eggs, as these were scarce during the war. Many people believe that the biscuits were sent with soldiers by their wives as they were not only a good source of energy but also kept well during transportation. If you do a little research you'll find that this...

I have a sister who loves to bake, just like I do. When I stayed with her recently, I tasted her latest creation - this totally addictive chocolate granola. She worked hard at perfecting the recipe, and then kindly shared it with me. I promised that I'd send her a shout-out for that. So thanks Sandra! Considering how delicious this chocolate granola tastes, I was quite surprised to find that is also quite healthy. Healthy is not really my thing, so I added my own special touch - in the form of some chocolate chips. There, that's better! Not only is this granola delicious and fairly healthy...
