Blackberry Jam and a Breakfast Cake

September 3, 2013

21

The idea for this cake came to me as I woke up this morning. I leapt out of bed declaring that I wanted some sort of breakfast cake. Is that even a thing?

The Aga Tarts

August 2, 2013

13

You know how this works by now: I tell you a meandering tale by way of recipe foreplay then insert a money shot to keep your interest. Today though…because my final images are being saved for the Autumn edition of Aga Living Magazine you will have to make do with one of my ‘practice tarts’ […]

Orange & Elderflower Liqueur

June 29, 2013

15

Something different to our usual elderflower cordial and champagne that's a gnat's heavier on the alcohol.

Funnel Cakes

May 25, 2013

36

We never made it to the funnel cake stand, so we made our own.

Caramel Apple Tarts

March 11, 2013

10

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

Pancakes? We got ’em.

A collection of our favourite pancake recipes.

Every Flavour Puddings

January 5, 2013

25

No bogey flavour ones (these are not Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans): These are my Every Flavour Puddings.

Clementine Madeleines

December 6, 2012

26

These are a nice alternative to a mince pie. They give you that 'chocolate orange vibe' without having to tap-it-and-unwrap-it.

Brendan’s Normandy Apple Tart

October 29, 2012

13

I spent Friday at the Seasoned Cookery School on a 'Brilliant Bakes' course hosted by Brendan, finalist in 2012's Great British Bake Off. The day started off very well with a slab of Brendan's homemade granola slice and a cup of tea.

Chocolate Cheesecakes

October 14, 2012

33

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

Plum Cake {Cheese Cake}

September 15, 2012

17

I took one bowlful of Victoria Plums from our little tree and turned them into a tray bake that has allusions of being a cheesecake.

Apple and Salted Caramel Focaccia

September 5, 2012

18

It's focaccia, but not as we know it.

Marshmallow Pavlova Cake

August 5, 2012

34

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

Ruby Gin Fizz

July 15, 2012

24

Nothing is easier than gin fizz. I tell a lie, drinking gin straight from the bottle is easier but I am told that it's frowned upon and I should really get a glass. Also, you've got to get your five a day from somewhere, so why not from cocktails?

Honeyed Apricot Tarts

June 23, 2012

20

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

Caramel Apple Cloud Pancake

May 18, 2012

20

Oh really...more oven baked pancakes? I know, I know, but this one is another winner. I promise. It's a good way to turn a crisp green apple into a decadent dessert for two or a greedy breakfast for one. What's not to like?

Soft Raspberry Coconut Ice

April 26, 2012

17

This Raspberry Coconut Ice from Dan Lepard tastes good, it's pretty, easy to make and you don't need to cook it. I like that it's kind of retro too.

Triple Orange Drizzle

April 17, 2012

27

A loaf cake flavoured with orange, moistened with orange and golden syrup and drizzled with orange icing.

Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

April 7, 2012

26

The idea of smooshing fresh raspberries into a simple coconut macaroon is inspired. These are delicious: fruity, soft and chewy all at the same time.
