Breakfast & Brunch, Recipes / 05.05.2022

Custard Yoghurt Toast went viral on TikTok earlier this year, and although I'm a bit late to the party I'm so glad I tried it out! It's made with a few basic ingredients - bread, double cream yoghurt, egg and honey and takes just 10 minutes to whip up. Whether you enjoy it for breakfast, dessert or an anytime snack, you're going to love the creamy custardy texture combined with the crunchy toast - yum!The traditional version features a vanilla custard topped with berries (usually strawberries) but I've developed a chocolate and almond version too. I'd love to know if...

These easy Nutella Cheesecake-filled Easter eggs are the perfect centrepiece for your Easter table. They look absolutely stunning and will satisfy even the most serious chocolate craving! They're made by filling Easter egg halves with an Oreo crumb and rich Nutella cheesecake filling. Decorate them with a drizzle of ganache and a variety of Easter eggs and you have yourself a seriously indulgent showstopper of a dessert! These cheesecakes can be made in advance up to the decorating, which I prefer to do just before serving. That's because candy-coated eggs pick up moisture in the fridge which causes them to...

Muffins & Buns, Recipes / 13.04.2022

If you’re in the mood to indulge this Easter, these Triple Chocolate Pull-apart Hot Cross Buns are just the ticket! Baked in a round cake tin to form the perfect pull-apart treat - simply place on your Easter table for everyone to help themselves and share.I’ve replaced the raisins with chocolate chunks (milk, dark AND white chocolate!), and also added some cocoa to the dough for some extra chocolate flavour. As if that wasn’t enough decadence, the crosses on top are made of white chocolate too! I added a bit of zesty candied citrus peel to balance out all that...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 08.02.2022

I’ve long since been a fan of Millionaires Shortbread. If you’ve never had this decadent treat, it’s made up of crisp shortbread, a gooey caramel layer and finally a layer of chocolate. Very rich indeed, which is probably how it got its name! As if this treat wasn't tempting enough, I’ve made my own version with dark, milk and white chocolate on top. This looks incredibly impressive, but is simple to achieve with nothing more than a skewer. Plus, you don’t need a sugar thermometer to make the easy caramel layer, just plenty of Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter for that perfect...

These Triple Chocolate Brownie Hearts are the perfect sweet treat to spoil your loved ones with this Valentine's Day. Not only are they absolutely delicious (I've yet to find anyone who can stop at just one!), the recipe is easy enough to make with the kids - they'll simply love decorating them! This is my go-to brownie recipe - soft and fudgy, with a rich cocoa flavour. For a little extra indulgence I've added white, milk and dark chocolate chunks too. Because why not?Creating the pretty heart shapes requires nothing more than a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Admittedly you'll have a...

With just a few weeks left of cherry season, I wanted to share one of my favourite cherry recipes with you - these utterly divine Black Forest Cupcakes! The recipe is based on a classic Black Forest Gateaux (or cake), which consists of layers of chocolate sponge cake, cherry filling and whipped cream and chocolate shavings to decorate. Traditionally, Kirshwasser (a liqueur made from cherries grown in the Black Forest region in Germany) is brushed onto the cake layers or added to the cherry filling, and it is thought that this is where the name of the cake comes from....

Sponsored. It’s that glorious time of year when our shops are filled with a variety of gorgeous citrus fruit. My favourite amongst these is juicy, sweet Clemengolds® (which are exclusively available at Woolworths). If I can get to them before my husband devours the whole bag, I love using them in baking as they are easy-to-peel and seedless as well! This Chocolate and Clemengold® Truffle Torte is incredibly rich and decadent, with a hint of zesty citrus. As it contains no flour, the texture is dense and fudgy (plus it’s gluten-free!). The Clemengold® syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness and freshness to balance...

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...

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...
