Chocolate & ginger viennoiserie & 2 years of blogging!

I cannot believe where these two years of blogging have gone. And what a thrilling learning curve it continues to be. In this “birthday post” I am so pleased to share this particular recipe: if you have never made croissant dough, this simple version, with these particular flavours, is a real celebration. A new camera! […]

Bread & butter pickles: spicy, sweet cucumbers

Good preserves are terrific partners for good bakes, and these sweet, spiced cucumbers are very easy to make. And it is always exciting to pop open a new jar of preserves, especially in the winter months, with that evocative taste of the summer you immediately get. What’s in a name? Whatever you want to call these […]

Whitworths Blogging Event: fruiting, chatting, baking & tiffin!

I was invited to my first food-related blogging event in London, organised by Whitworths and held at Venturis Table in London. It happened to be held on my birthday, so what better way to spend a birthday than with a fun event such as this. It was a thrill not only to do bake in a terrific kitchen and […]

Chouxnuts 2: chocolate & cherry flavour

I made a savoury version of these deep-fried choux pastry doughnuts a while ago (here) but this time I felt like going down the sweet route. I always have jars of dried cherries, some macerating in Amaretto and some in other liqueurs, and there is always chocolate to be found around the kitchen(!!), so a […]

Roasted cauliflower cheese tart

If you love cauliflower cheese you really must make this tart! I have been making this particular tart for well over a decade, inspired initially by a savoury crumble I ate at a restaurant. Essentially this tart is a wholemeal pastry case filled with cauliflower cheese and topped with a savoury crumble. Perhaps the topping makes this […]

Gluten-free Victoria Sandwich Cake

This is very much a quick, no-frills affair: utter simplicity and great flavour; what more is needed? The cake takes literally a couple of minutes to mix together, about 20 minutes baking and a few minutes to assemble the cooled sponges. Using xanthan gum or not This cake is softer than a cake made with traditional flour and crumbles […]

Floating maltesers Cake with salted caramel ganache

, I made this cake for my 6th formers at school. Maltesers have always been my favourite sweets: honeycomb and chocolate – a perfect match. And with salted caramel being a thing of such beauty, why not use these for a cake? The flavours: This “floating sweets look” is certainly nothing new, but it is fun!  But […]

Salmon & mushroom coulibiac

A very firm nod towards the classic dish of a few decades ago, this is an easy bake to throw together and is excellent served for a special occasion. Wonderful served warm with a salad or steamed vegetables, it is also excellent served cold; I must confess, I often make this for picnics. At the […]

Black Forest Gateau with chocolate cherry mirror glaze (Gluten-free)

My current version of Black Forest Gateau, or “cake in drag” as Victoria Wood so deliciously put it, is way over-the-top for sure in terms of the adult flavours…..but I make no apologies for that, as it is an adult dessert cake! I have made and posted about Black Forest Gateau before, and each time I make […]
