My version of a Mr Kipling's Apple Pie.

Simple Bread and Butter Pudding

I toyed with adding any number of random things to sex up this recipe, but this is how I remember it, so this is how it stays.

Strawberry Shortcake

Not a pink 1970's rag doll but a rich, open-weave scone drenched with strawberries and cream.

Caramel Apple Tarts

These were destined to be apple and ginger, but they became caramel apple tarts and I can't see anyone complaining.

Chocolate Cheesecakes

I know that all you want to do really is look at pictures of chocolate cheesecake. I aim to please.

Marshmallow Pavlova Cake

It's kind of marshmallow, doing an impression of a meringue, made into a fruity pavlova-style cake. You get me?

Honeyed Apricot Tarts

Lil' honey glazed apricot tarts. You can eat these in one mouthful. That's one of your five-a-day right there.

Espresso Panna Cotta

I am really very pleased with this recipe; I think it worked out rather well. Creamy and wobbly and rich with coffee flavours.

Mocha Fudge Ice Cream

Following some testing, tasting and general gluttony I am pleased to introduce you to this Mocha Fudge Ice Cream. If you read My First Ice Cream post you will know that I was not completely happy with my results from the “Best ever chocolate ice cream” recipe by Cenk Cafe Fernando. Several people who made it ended up with […]

Let’s Make Christmas (Pudding)

November 14, 2011

I am heading down (or is it up?) to London on Friday for the ‘Let’s Make Christmas’ Blogger Gift Swap at Fortnum and Mason arranged by Vanessa Kimbell. Each year my Mum used to take me Christmas shopping in London on the train. We finished the day at the theatre watching something like West Side […]

Sweet Coconut Milk Risotto

October 20, 2011

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. It makes me want to hibernate. Failing that I want to light the fire, curl up under a blanket and eat something like this. This is the creamiest of puddings. It’s made with coconut milk, nothing desiccated in here, that would jar with the texture. […]

These Foolish Things

Why I have never made a fool before I don't know. Light, tangy, sweet, fruity, creamy, easy, beautiful.

Not-so-mini Pavlovas

May 19, 2011

I have always, always loved pavlova. I think it stems from my delight at the frozen ones bought from the Cash & Carry back in the 70′s. A raspberry pavlova was the height of chic in those days, even though my Mum used to forget to get it out of the freezer so we ended up […]

Bramble Crumble

It started with these berries. Found this little lot just at the end of the garden, sneaking over the fence. They were so gorgeous we had to pick them. Found these plums. They were destined to be together. And a few raspberries too…just because. Added a crumble topping. 25 minutes in a hot oven It’s […]
