Spiced Apple Rose Tart

Spiced Apple Rose Tart

It’s SEPTEMBER guys. This year has honestly flown by, buttt I can’t lie. I’m pretty happy to be heading into Autumn. Its my favourite time of year baking wise, there’s just so many wonderful ingredients to play with. Apples, cinnamon, pecans, pears, maple…I could go Read More

Blackberry, Rosemary & Honey Galette

Blackberry, Rosemary & Honey Galette

Ever have a food that as a kid you decided you disliked without ever trying and have carried that ‘dislike’ into adult life? Well that’s me with blackberries…! I have no idea why I decided I didn’t like them, though I ‘didn’t like’ many berries 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 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

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

Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

It’s my Dad’s birthday tomorrow, so we had a little celebratory lunch today in his honour. I made bakewell tart, my sister made chocolate-dipped Viennese biscuits and we had homemade sausage rolls to top off the savoury lunch! It was all very delicious, but I Read More

Raspberry and Frangipane Tart with Lemon Drizzle

Raspberry and Frangipane Tart with Lemon Drizzle

Sometimes you just need to bake a tart right? And this weekend was one of those times.┬áThe crisp buttery pastry, sharp tang of raspberries and comforting frangipane makes this a favourite in my book.┬áThe rectangular tart tin also makes it look far fancier than it Read More

Pear and Frangipane Tart

Pear and Frangipane Tart

This Pear and Frangipane tart, dare I say it, may be the best tart I’ve ever made. Bold statement I know, but pastry has never been my strong point and this tart is rectangular! RECTANGULAR!! And I still managed to make it look appealing! So Read More
