Passion Fruit Cream Sandwich Cake

My Passion Fruit Sandwich Cake is the perfect Sunday teatime treat or indulgent alternative dessert.

Raspberry Ripple Brioche Custard Pudding

My Raspberry Ripple Brioche Custard Pudding is my take on a Bread and Butter Pudding made this time with leftover Brioche burger buns and raspberry compote leftover from a batch I made earlier. “Waste not want not” has made a truly fabulous dessert that is rich and creamy with a sharp sweet edge that isContinue reading “Raspberry Ripple Brioche Custard Pudding”

Everyone loves a Chocolate Fudge Cake and there are countless recipes claiming to be the best. I’m not going to do that here but I can say this is one of the easiest.

My Boozy Coffee Sandwich Cake

My Boozy Coffee Sandwich Cake has a good shot of whisky and another generous shot of Baileys Irish Liqueur to take it up the next level. I used an Irish whiskey in the cake and Chocolate Baileys in the buttercream for this treat but whatever brand or type you use will be good. Glayva isContinue reading “My Boozy Coffee Sandwich Cake”

Blackberry Brûlée

Fruit Brûlée is something I often make at the same time as Pavlova or meringues as it’s criminal to waste the beautiful egg yolks when you can simply create a gorgeous dessert in no time at all. For those purists I would say the addition of blackberries is actually quite gorgeous and doesn’t dilute theContinue reading “Blackberry Brûlée”

Pear & Almond Pudding

Pear and Almond Pudding is dairy free, gluten free and kosher for Passover too but often it’s simply a warming dessert after Sunday Lunch or other times just because it would be rude not to enjoy it as it takes no time at all. It freezes perfectly too so bake it ahead for the JewishContinue reading “Pear & Almond Pudding”
