Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 22.03.2019

This is one of those shamelessly decadent recipes. I mean, as if a crumble wasn't yummy enough, you make it even more delicious by making it a chocolate crumble. And a fruit filling? Nope, we're going with a creamy caramel custard instead! It's no secret that chocolate and caramel are a match made in heaven. The combination of textures is what really makes these Chocolate and Caramel Crumble  Squares a winner though. An ultra creamy, smooth caramel custard sandwiched between 2 layers of buttery, crumbly biscuit - is indeed as good as it sounds! Since the caramel filling is quite sweet, I...

Do you remember After Eights? If you never had the pleasure of tasting one, they are delicious thin squares of dark chocolate filled with a minty cream (also known as Peppermint Creams or Thin Mints).

Although I have love for both of them, I am celebrating Pancake Day with the latter variety. These utterly decadent S’mores Pancakes to be specific! In my opinion the perfect crepe should...

In November last year, I was fortunate enough to visit the United States for the first time. I was invited to attend the Saveur Blog Awards in Memphis, being nominated in the Best Baking and Sweets Category. I was honoured to be included in a group of such talented and inspirational bloggers from around the world! It was also a great opportunity to check out all the delicious goodies one can buy in the US. I actually spent about 3 hours just wandering the aisles of a Walmart! The variety of items available is quite staggering. In my quest to taste...
