Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 24.06.2021

Last week a neighbour gifted me a bag of beautiful ripe passion fruit. I set about making a big batch of passion fruit curd (recipe coming soon!) but had plenty fruit leftover. I've been meaning to reshoot a raspberry cheesecake recipe from many years ago and decided to remake it with a passionfruit topping instead! I was so pleased with the flavour and thought it looked really striking too. Despite technically being a "no-bake" cheesecake, I find that baking the crust for a few minutes really amps up the toasty, biscuity flavour of the cheesecake. This combined with a creamy, almost...

Sponsored. 14 June is International Cupcake Day, that’s right – an entire day dedicated to cupcakes! When I hear the word “cupcake”, the image that comes to mind is that of a classic vanilla cupcake topped with a huge swirl of pink icing, decorated generously with sprinkles. The perfect treat for any birthday party!  However, in order to honour the humble cupcake I wanted to do something extra-special. What I really love about cupcakes is that you can remove a little of the centre and fill it up with any number of delicious fillings. Then, once the cupcake is iced, this filling...

In celebration of National Doughnut Day, I wanted to make some filled doughnuts as it's something I haven't done before. (Side note: technically this is an American holiday, but I tend to get on board with foodie days because why not!)To help me decide on a filling, I asked my Instagram followers to vote between 4 options. The options were Biscoff, Nutella, Caramel/Peppermint Crisp or Vanilla custard. It was a very close race, but these classic vanilla custard doughnuts came out tops. I was secretly quite pleased as these were the ones I was hoping to make! I've often thought...

Sponsored.   13 May is Apple Pie Day, and this is one holiday I am super-excited to get on board with! Although Apple Pie is considered an all-American dessert, it was actually invented by the Brits back in the 14th century and included figs, pears, raisins and saffron. It was only in the 18th century that the first apple pie recipe was printed in America where it quickly gained popularity, and is now considered America’ favourite dessert. In the spirit of celebrating this delicious, comforting dessert I went about developing an Apple Pie recipe with a twist. Replacing the pastry on top with a lattice of...

I debated calling this "Chocolate Cream Pie" but since pies are technically made up of a filling between two crusts, this is actually a tart (with only a bottom crust). Whatever you wish to call it, it is delicious. I mean seriously indulgent and rich and decadent and just darn delicious! Although uncomplicated in it's flavour - it is chocolate through and through - it 's far from one-dimensional. Each layer adds its own special magic: a crunchy chocolate cookie base, then a fudgy, melt-in-the-mouth ganache all topped off with clouds of softly whipped cream. Many ganache tarts do without...

Just about every baker out there will tell you they have the BEST chocolate cake recipe. But you can ignore them. Because this recipe is the only chocolate cake recipe you'll ever need! I've been using this recipe for over 20 years and it has never flopped. That's what I call fool-proof! This is a simple and straightforward chocolate cake. No difficult techniques or fancy ingredients. It has a lovely, light texture and is not too rich. The beauty of this cake is you can make it as modest or as magnificent as you like. A basic topping of whipped cream is absolutely delicious, or for a...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 16.04.2021

Mastering the art of "flood icing" will allow you to transform a plain old sugar cookie into a bright and beautiful work of art! I couldn't think of anything more fun and cheerful than a plate of colourful doughnut cookies, and had a lot of fun decorating them. As a bonus you not need any fancy cookie cutters to make doughnut shapes - just a round cutter and an inverted piping nozzle.I have spent a fair amount of time testing different cookie recipes and flooding techniques, and have learnt a few tricks along the way:- Do not overmix the...

It was whilst watching an episode of Chefs Table: Pastry that I learned about Christina Tosi and her famous Momofuku Milk Bar store. Christina started her bakery empire in 2008 and now has 16 Milk Bar Stores throughout the United States. She is most well-known for putting her spin on nostalgic childhood favourites like her Birthday Cake (notably with no icing on the sides) and cereal milk. I was drawn to her passion for creating fun, unapologetically sweet treats and was thrilled to find that she has generously shared the recipe for her renowned Birthday Cake online! Unlike my chocolate...

Do you like chocolate? Do you like cheesecake? How about speckled eggs? I thought so! Then these adorable mini Easter chocolate cheesecakes are just for you. Made up of an Oreo base, a creamy chocolate cheesecake layer and a chocolate curl "birds nest" filled with mini speckled eggs. I used the new choc-mint flavoured speckled eggs which I absolutely love (they add a fresh minty burst which cuts through the richness), but any mini easter eggs will work perfectly. You may have noticed there is chocolate in every layer of these little babies so definitely invite your chocoholic friend around...

A Babka is a braided bread that has been around since the 1800's. It originates from the Jewish communities in Eastern Europe and was originally made with excess challah dough which was rolled up with jam or cinnamon. Recently, babka's have gained in popularity in the United States too. This is thanks to an Israeli bakery that opened in New York about 10 years ago, selling all types of babka's including a chocolate variety which has become world-famous! Babka has been on my "to bake" list for ages, but I wanted to try a non-traditional filling. For those who follow...
