Raspberry creme drip cake

If a party without cake is just a meeting then serving up this really would make it a celebration! I’ve made this cake a couple of times now and it’s always very well received, it looks impressive before you’ve even… Continue Reading →

Banana rum cheesecake

I started off wanting to make a Banoffee cheesecake but I can be a bit funny about bananas. I’ll only eat them when they’re slightly under-ripe you see, when they’re still a touch green at the ends. The moment a… Continue Reading →

Lemon cheesecake ice cream (no-churn)

Doesn’t this just look like the perfect refreshing treat for a sunny day? Rich creamy cheesecake flavoured ice cream muddled with a tangy swirl of zesty lemon curd and studded with crunchy nuggets of biscuit. Who could resist diving straight… Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and green tea loaf

  I couldn’t help myself. I have to squeeze in another rhubarb recipe before the season is over. The plant in my garden still seems to be building up its strength after a few years of neglect whilst we were… Continue Reading →

Mixed fruit pie

Apricot, cardamom and honey ice cream (no-churn)

These are flavours which are just made to go together. They’re fragrant and exotic and generally a delicious combination. Cardamom is one of my favourite spices. I do love a no-churn ice cream recipe too, they’re always so quick and… Continue Reading →

Rhurbarb and ginger tart

This is a lovely seasonal twist on my recipe for apricot bourbon tart (you might have seen it in The Guardian). I love anything involving frangipane and I’m always striving to attain pastry perfection. My grandma made the best pastry… Continue Reading →

Raspberry Whisky Sour

I actually created this cocktail to serve before our Burns Night supper but look at how pretty it is! It’s perfect for Valentines day too. I wouldn’t recommend using a really, really, peaty whisky in this but you should still… Continue Reading →
