Blackcurrant and clotted cream cheesecake

When I was little a battle would be waged every summer in our garden between my mum and the resident blackbirds over who was going to get to the blackcurrants first once they reached peak ripeness. On the occasions when… Continue Reading →

Mango and passion fruit tarts

Who says custard has to be vanilla flavoured? Don’t get me wrong, I love a good rich vanilla custard but I also like a change every now and again. Passion fruit works really well in these, it has a nice… Continue Reading →

Sour cherry and cinnamon jam

I’ve told you before about how much I love cherries. I’ve probably mentioned the tears that ensued when I swallowed a cherry stone as a child and my dad told me a cherry tree would grow out of my head…. Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and rose fool

I love the simplicity of a fool. If you’ve got some cream in your fridge and almost any kind of fruit then you’re pretty much there as far as ingredients go. It’s very much a fuss-free dessert. But just because… Continue Reading →
