Chocolate Brownies with Pecans

I have had a few requests for brownies lately. Now I have mentioned before how I am not a huge fan of them, as they are a bit too dense for my liking. My previous recipe for Chocolate Brownies is for a thicker, more cake like brownie.

Chocolate Fondant

  I realised recently that it has been quite some since I posted a chocolate recipe. Remember when I said I’d post one a month?! Yeah, that didn’t really work out. Anyway here’s one more to add to the collection, Chocolate Fondant. Also known as Molten Chocolate Cakes, Lava Cakes or Hot Chocolate Puddings.

Peanut and Chocolate Breakfast Bars

Anyone who follows me on social media will know how much I love a good breakfast. It’s my favourite meal of the weekend where I can take my time over a really special dish. Midweek, however, I can barely manage a quick cup of coffee while I dry my hair. Earlier this year I became […]

Chocolate and Cherry Semifreddo

I’ve been a very lazy blogger this Summer. It’s usually the time of year where I churn out recipes as I can take photos in the evening with all the natural light. With this year’s unusually hot Summer though, I’ve been sticking to old favourites and salads that can be made in no time so […]

Chocolate Tiramisu

  Or to give it it’s full title, Chocolate Baileys and Rum Tiramisu. I’m fairly sure Italian food purists are aghast at this tinkering with such a recipe, but Tiramisu is a relatively recent invention so I might get away with it. However, strange as it seems coming from someone who doesn’t function before their […]

My Favourite Chocolate Cake

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for quite a while. I’m not sure why, probably because I usually make it for an occasion and it doesn’t look great to arrive to someone’s house with a cake that has already been cut! So today I’m making it for a selfish special occasion, I’m off work and […]
