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.

Lemon Cheesecake

I was making desserts for an Easter get together and could not make up my mind what to make. Normally I would make something with chocolate because, well, chocolate. But given the fact that everyone was probably going to be gorging on chocolate eggs all day I thought something zingy would do the trick. So […]

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Two posts in less than a week! It must be some sort of record. Don’t worry, I’ll probably disappear again for a while. I just couldn’t let Pancake Tuesday pass again without sharing my recipe for these Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes.

Rhubarb and Custard Tart

  It’s been a while since I posted a dessert recipe so here you go. Rhubarb and custard is a classic combination and I love cooking with rhubarb when it is in season. Himself is not a fan so I usually make these things and have to find someone to offload them on or I’d […]

Homemade Jaffa Cakes

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 […]
