I’ve just bought some new season rhubarb. Young and tender and pink as you like. I love these slender, forced Timperley stems. They are so tender and not at all stringy like the rhubarb my Mum used to grow. It makes me think that Spring is really on the way. It’s a real toss-up as […]

Choose life: Choose a big meringuey pudding that takes up a whole shelf in the fridge and a weeks worth of calories in your belly.

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

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 […]

This Weekend I made my first ever ice cream. I spotted this pin on Pinterest entitled ‘The best chocolate ice cream you’ll ever have‘ and it led me to the fabulous Cup of Jo blog. There are no eggs in this recipe and you don’t need an ice cream maker. It’s very easy and very, very […]

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.

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

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 […]

This is something that has been on my ‘to blog’ list for a while: Ice Cream Muffins. When I read that you can make muffins by just using Flour and Ice Cream I was intrigued. When you think about it, a good quality dairy ice cream has eggs, sugar and vanilla in it, as well as cream. Add […]

When I ran out of cherries this week, my usual fairy cakes looked a bit forlorn. I was about to rustle up some buttercream when I remembered we had a carton of double cream. Ooh…ganache, I thought. I rummaged round the cupboards to find an equal quantity of chocolate to match the cream. I couldn’t […]

I have always baked the scone recipe that my mother made. The one from the ancient Dairy Diary cookbook that she bought from the milkman when I was a kid. It was a basic affair, and it did the job, but they were a bit ordinary. I have been trialling different ingredients and quantities and […]
