I was one of a select few guests that was invited to visit the Cherry Time farm in Worcester this past weekend. We had a fantastic day picking cherries, learning all about cherry agriculture, and enjoying a picnic lunch in the cherry orchards. I've always loved using cherries in desserts but after learning how tricky they are to grow, I have a new appreciation for these gorgeous little fruits!I returned home with an abundant harvest of plump and juicy cherries, just crying out to be used in a fancy, festive dessert. I really wanted to hero the cherries, so much...

It's not hard to see why S'mores are so popular. The combination of crunchy biscuits, melted chocolate and gooey toasted marshmallow is all kinds of wonderful! I took inspiration from these glorious treats to come up with a Halloween-inspired dessert. With a buttery biscuit crumb base, rich chocolate mousse layer and ghoulish marshmallow ghost topping, these Spooky Chocolate Mousse Bars have all the S'mores flavour with an extra touch of scary! I used an easy, egg-free chocolate mousse recipe which contains marshmallows to help the mousse set so that the bars can be sliced easily. Of course, making the little...

Let me tell you a little bit about Zola Nene. Not only is she an extremely talented chef, TV show host and cookbook author, she is also one of the friendliest and bubbliest people I have ever met! To add to her incredible achievements, recently Zola featured on Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted where she teaches the multi-Michelin starred chef how to cook authentic Zulu cuisine!A few weeks ago I bought Zola's second book - Simply Zola. It is absolutely packed with a wide range of delicious, approachable recipes. The chapter that really caught my eye (apart from the desserts, of course)...

I'm a big fan of frangipane tarts and have been meaning to try a chocolate version for a while. Frangipane is a sweet pastry cream made with ground almonds that is usually used in baked tarts along with fruit. This pear and chocolate frangipane tart recipe is made with a chocolate pastry as well as a chocolate frangipane filling so it will certainly keep the chocoholics happy! With pears being in season and a wonderful companion to both chocolate and almonds, it was a no-brainer to use them in this tart. The result is a rich and sophisticated dessert...

Happy World Chocolate Day! It seemed only right that I share a delicious chocolate recipe with you today. However, this recipe is more than just another chocolate recipe. It may actually be my new favourite recipe. In. The. World. A few years ago, I posted a Milo Cake with Condensed Milk Icing recipe. It went viral and is still one of my most popular recipes on the blog! A friend suggested I convert the recipe into brownies, and what a bright idea that was! I already knew that the flavour combo was a winner (I mean who doesn't love...

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...

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.When Bakers® sent me a box of Bakers Choice Assorted® to make a festive dessert with, I had a really hard time choosing which of my favourite favourite biscuits to use! As such I decided to use all of the biscuits to make this delicious dessert sharing board.  I used 3 of the biscuit varieties to make mini desserts: mini Bakers Red Label® Lemon Cream trifles, Bakers Topper® cherry swirl ice cream sandwiches and mini Bakers Nuttikrust® caramel cheesecakes. Each recipe makes 12 mini desserts, which look beautiful when arranged on a large board or platter with some fresh berries, chocolate...

The Paris Brest was created in 1910 by Chef Louis Durand and is simply a ring of choux pastry that is filled (traditionally with a praline mousseline cream) and decorated with almonds. The origin of the name is an old bicycle race between Paris and the city of Brest in Brittany - the circular shape of the pastry is intended to represent a bicycle wheel. I decided to fill mine with an easy chocolate mousse, which is deliciously creamy and rich with the crunchy pastry, and not too sweet.Choux pastry, unlike other pastries, is a rather wet dough that bakes into a light and crisp...
