Cream Cheese Pound Cake

A dense, buttery melt in your mouth cake with a sweet blood orange glaze. This recipe has been in my archives for a while and I thought I would dust it out and share it with you guys. I saw a cream cheese pound cake years ago and then, scoffed at the idea. I turns out that it produces an incredibly delicious cake. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it,…

Christmas Tree Pavlova

A festive showstopper combining crunchy meringue, whipped cream and fresh raspberries – and it’s easier than it looks! Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Raspberry and Pistachio Roulade

A beautiful red and green dessert which scream Christmas, but can be an all year round pleaser. Roulades are impressive, but look intimidating to make. One of the signature characteristics of roulades however, are that they are meant to crack a little – so do not stress about getting a perfect flawless roll. What is more, the outside gets covered with a cream, so even if it does crack, nobody…

Gingerbread Pudding

A slight twist on the traditional Malva Pudding to add all the festive feels. Malva pudding is a staple at any dessert table, and I have made it a tad bit more festive by converting it into a gingerbread pudding. For those who are not familiar, malva pudding, it is a sweet caramel like sponge doused in a rich, buttery caramel sauce. My original recipe can be found here. It…

Boozy Fruit Cake

A luxurious fruit cake, packed with lots of fruit and nuts and doused with a good dose of brandy I have not had much time to bake in the last few weeks, with the implication that my Festive Baking is very delayed. Nevertheless, better late than never. This luxury fruit cake soaks the fruit a few days in advance, so thankfully still packs that boozy flavour without needing to feed…

My Ultimate Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are wonderfully gooey and fudgy, but still have a slight bit of cakiness to them. The textures are enhanced with the addition of cocoa nibs and pecans. Brownies are a little chocolate bites of heaven, which lots of people have strong opinions about …. cakey vs fudge, cocoa vs chocolate, nuts vs no nuts …. the list is endless. That’s the wonderful think about baking, you can take…

Raspberry Snack Cake

This super easy recipe is super moist thanks to the inclusion of olive oil, with a burst of raspberries. I recently got my hands on Edd Kimber’s new book, One Tin Bakes and have been enjoying baking from it a lot. The recipes are really delicious, but come together in a single tin and the mixing time is really quick as well. One recipe, in particular, which caught my eye…

There are so many of them – my lemon cheesecake, lemon and poppyseed madeleines, lemon cupcakes, lemon meringue pie ….. and here’s another to add to the list!
