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 […]

Pomegranate and Raspberry Trifle

Sherry Trifle and Christmas go hand in hand in my home. I remember every Christmas Eve as a child watching my mother make the trifle. Trifles sponges soaked, and I mean soaked, in sherry put into the special trifle bowl, jelly poured over and a tin of fruit. The sponge sort of disintegrated into the […]

Apple Tarte Tatin

This is another of those posts that has been planned for months and then forgotten about. I planned to be all organised and seasonal and post a recipe using apples in September but only remembered this Apple Tarte Tatin was in my drafts last weekend! Anyway, better late than never.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I’m squishing this recipe in on the last day of July just to hop on the end of the Ice Cream Month bandwagon. And also to get a nice chocolate recipe up for the month. You can make these as a great treat for kids but my version uses dark chocolate which may be more […]

Cherry and Peach Galette

Cherry and Peach Galette Do you like the idea of baking your own tart but worry that it is too fiddly and you’ll never manage one of those beautiful lattice tops? Enter the galette. The word galette refers to a variety of flat cakes. It is used mostly to describe this type of freeform tart, […]
