Raspberry and Earl Grey Madeleines

Oops! Somehow another madeleine recipe has made it onto this blog… These are like my perfect Anglo-French treat. The floral earl grey tea goes really well with the sharp sweet raspberries and the little sponges have a wonderful melt-in-the-mouth texture…. Continue Reading →

Moelleux aux chocolat

Sometimes you just need a slice of rich gooey chocolate cake. A moelleux isn’t some namby-pamby light, fluffy sponge adorned with frosting. It’s a serious chocolate hit. Dense and fudgy and a little bit gooey in the middle, almost to… 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 →

MUMBAI MOONSHINE

The inspiration for this post comes partly from my sister-in-law, who makes a yummy cup of ‘proper’ chai and partly from a recent visit to Cafe Nola in nearby Frederick. Whilst sat in the cafe (drinking the prettiest cup of… Continue Reading →

WELSH CAKES

The first day of March is St David’s day. St David is the patron saint of Wales and whilst I consider myself to be Cornish I was actually born in Wales. The daffodils aren’t out here yet so I need… Continue Reading →

GREEN TEA AND LEMON SWISS ROLL

A few years ago I was lucky enough to have the chance to visit Japan. It is very much a country of extremes. It’s possible to spend morning roaming around the old city of Nara visiting temples and hand feeding… Continue Reading →
