Desserts, Muffins & Buns, Recipes / 01.06.2018

Doughnuts are right up there with my favourite treats in the whole world. Light and fluffy on the inside, crispy fried on the outside and then either filled with or covered in something sweet and decadent. What's always put me off making my own is the whole frying business. Being as clumsy as I am, the thought of litres of bubbling hot oil anywhere near me made me a little nervous. Until I discovered the wonder of this Russell Hobbs Digital deep fryer. Not only does it heat the oil in a matter of minutes, but it maintains the temperature of the...

Something I miss greatly about living in England is the tradition of the "Cream Tea". Freshly baked scones, with lashings of jam and clotted cream (with a cup of tea on the side of course) - simply delightful!

What's great about these little cakes is the soft, moist texture and zesty lemon freshness. The blueberries bring heaps of flavour to the table, as well as adding the gorgeous purple...

This Chai Spiced Apple Rose Tart was inspired by the very talented Julie Jones. For those who don't know her, she is the author of The Soulful Baker and creates the most beautiful tarts and pies. I made a few adjustments to her recipe - I used my go-to shortcrust pastry recipe and added a generous amount of Chai-spices to the frangipane filling. The result is simply superb! A crisp, buttery pastry filled with spiced almond frangipane and sweet, slightly crisp apples. All the delicate work in making the apple roses certainly pays off when you present this gorgeous tart to...
