Jaffa Cakes have always been a particular weakness of mine. When I was younger I could easily eat a whole packet in one go. Of course back then I could eat whatever I wanted and still be a size 8. How I wish I’d appreciated my teenage metabolism, now I just have to think of […]
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.
