Quick & easy gluten-free sausage rolls

I have a great love of sausage rolls: as long as the pastry is light, crisp and buttery and, most crucially, the filling is generously packed with flavour then I am beyond happy! It is goodies such as apple, cheese, and a touch of pickle that get added to the sausagemeat that turn this humble […]

Gluten-free choux pastry: mini BLT éclairs & chocolate choux buns

These are great gluten-free mini bakes that highlight the fact that gluten-free food need not have the texture and flavour of cardboard or be at all boring! And these were quick to make, with two batches ready to eat in about an hour. Choux pastry opens up all manner of exciting possibilities for both sweets and […]

Quicker & easier croissants: 20-minute lamination!

Updated February 2017 A batch of croissants, made traditionally, can take the best part of a weekend with all the resting and chilling in between the turns and at other stages. Don’t get me wrong, making croissants the traditional way is one of the top baking pleasures for me, but there are certainly times when effective shortcuts are […]

Kouign-Amann pastries: shortcut method

This is my easy version of this wonderful Breton pastry, Kouign-Amann, roughly pronounced “queen ah-marn” which loosely translates as buttery cake. And these are indeed buttery and flaky, with terrific caramelisation. There is also very little hands-on time when it comes to making them. I have been making Kouign-Amann, on and off, for just over a […]

Full-English breakfast rolls!

An idea to create a more substantial twist on sausage rolls inspired this bake: a selection of the best English cooked breakfast staples are encased in crisp, buttery puff pastry. The bacon, sausagemeat and black pudding need to be of the best quality, not just for the flavour but so that as they bake they do not […]

Coffee, pecan & salted caramel truffle torte

This incredibly indulgent treat is my take on a marvellous cake I ate at a patisserie on holiday ages ago and as soon as I got home I set out to try to recreate its flavours and textures. I was delighted for my original recipe to be published in Sainsbury’s Magazine (Sept 2014 issue), along […]
