Mini Caramelised Pecan Cheesecakes

Mini Caramelised Pecan Cheesecakes

I have an extremely vivid food memory. I can remember specific moments in my life purely from what food was eaten at the time. An insanely good packet of salt&vinegar crisps shared in my first flat; a hearty pulled pork burger with bacon jam eaten Read More

Strawberry Galette

Strawberry Galette

I have been utterly obsessed with strawberries recently. I’ve chomped my way through punnet after punnet. I’m not sure if they’re especially good at the moment, or if I’ve just gotten a sudden craving? Though I did hear that due to the lack of Wimbledon Read More

Chocolate Lime Tarts

Chocolate Lime Tarts

I love lime. Squeezed over a pad thai, dunked in a g&t or even blitzed in a smoothie; I’ll always be overzealous with it. I just love how fresh, tangy and vibrant it is. I really wanted to incorporate it into a bake somehow and Read More

Passionfruit Meringue Tart

Passionfruit Meringue Tart

Passionfruit is one of those fruits that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. But its definitely not my favourite to eat. The flavour is so amazing but I hate the harsh texture of the seeds and eating just the pulp/juice is pretty tricky. Read More

Blueberry Crumble Tarts

Blueberry Crumble Tarts

Blueberries are one of those fruits that I will pretty much never eat ‘raw’. The texture just really puts me off! But in muffins? Pancakes?! Even pies! I loveee it. There’s something really beautiful about how the colour of the blueberries change when they’re cooked Read More

Lemon Cream Gingernut Pie

Lemon Cream Gingernut Pie

Sweet pies are pretty darn American. They make me think of a southern belle popping round to a neighbours house clutching a fresh bake. There’s something warming and comforting about them, even if this particular pie is served cold! My lemon cream gingernut pie is Read More

Caramel Rye Truffles

Caramel Rye Truffles

So has summer ended now? This time a couple of weeks ago I was sat in the park catching a major sunburn (oops!), and now its raining! WHY?! These caramel rye truffles are sure to cheer you up though! They’re little decadent morsels, that are Read More

Lemon Curd and Swiss Meringue Tart

Lemon Curd and Swiss Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue, is there a better combination? The tangy lemon curd coupled with the pillowy sweet swiss meringue is so so delicious. I love how fresh it tastes compared to a traditional lemon meringue pie which would be baked. And how the swiss meringue just Read More

Treacle Tart

Treacle Tart

Treacle tart has never interested me. I’ve always thought it was sickly, cloying and designed for children. Until I spent a week at Ashburton Cookery School. We made an insane amount of cakes, bread and patisserie. Its funny how much you can make when someone Read More

No-Bake Creme Egg Cheesecake

No-Bake Creme Egg Cheesecake

I remember the first time I had a creme egg. It was a scorching hot day in the summer holidays, as all childhood summer days seemed to have been, and my sister had bought me one to try. It was practically all melted and the Read More

Chocolate, Hazelnut and Salted Caramel Tart

Chocolate, Hazelnut and Salted Caramel Tart

Sometimes you need a luxurious dessert and when that need comes a chocolate, hazelnut and salted caramel tart is the answer. Can I be honest? This tart was a bit of a pain to make. Or if I’m being actually honest, I just kept messing Read More

Black Forest Gateau

Black Forest Gateau

Black Forest Gateau. The classic seventies dessert is a personal favourite of Craig’s, so when his 25th Birthday rolled around I knew what was gonna be on the menu! This is a boozy cake. There’s no getting around it, so if alcohol isn’t for you Read More
