Cupcakes: a contemporary camp classic!

As with macarons, there is nothing butch about a cupcake, but it revels in its campery – and rightly so! They flounced onto the baking scene with great style several years ago, demanding to be noticed, and all of a sudden the shops started featuring them and everyone started making them. A good cupcake is […]

Red Onion Tarte Tatin

  A tarte tatin is a wonderful thing to eat, more commonly as a dessert when made with fruit and served warm with cream. However, a savoury tarte tatin works very well indeed and this is one of my favourites, with simplicity being very much the key: the soft onions and the saltiness of the […]

Another birthday cake

Any excuse to bake and decorate a cake, and good practice for an upcoming celebration! Baked for a work colleague’s birthday the cake was, thankfully, polished off! This cake is almost exactly as for my earlier Practice wedding cake but I stepped up the raspberry flavour in the filling and I also added blueberries to […]

Cheese & Onion Pasties

Along with good sausage rolls, a good pasty can be hard to beat as a quick snack and they are so simple to make. I often make double the quantity, freeze those that are not eaten immediately (sometimes there are some left to freeze!) – the frozen ones take little time to defrost and are […]

Coffee & Walnut Battenberg Cake

A Battenberg is one of my favourite cakes but I do not make these often enough. Then again, making a Battenberg only occasionally keeps it special. Butch it might not be, but delicious it certainly is! This is essentially a Victoria Sponge cake, flavoured two ways, surrounded with marzipan: so lovely to eat. I prefer natural colours and […]

Chocolate Birthday Cake

A seriously chocolately cake! The sponge is a Victoria Sandwich, with 30g of cocoa powder replacing 30g of the flour. A fatless sponge works very well too. The filling is a simple buttercream made by beating together 75g of softened unsalted butter, 200g sifted icing sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 50g of cooled, melted dark […]

Pineapple and Coconut Macarons

My version of a piña colada cocktail in a macaron! These were created for my partner who wanted a particularly special macaron, and as he is such a fan of piña coladas…… These are not too sweet; the pineapple and lime juice in the filling strike the right balance between the sweetness of the white chocolate […]

Quick Apple Tart

This is lovely dessert that is both simple and quick to make. It is equally lovely served either warm or chilled, with a dollop of cream or ice cream. The tart can also be made very small and served as petits fours. I tend to make a quick rough-puff pastry for this tart but a […]

Roasted Beetroot Soup

A great vehicle for home-made bread – this is a lovely, earthy soup that is simple to make and tastes so much better than commercial soups. I often make several batches of these soups to use the varieties of beetroot I grow. I normally use a mixture of red beetroot and golden beetroot, although sometimes I […]
