Welsh Cakes are an easy tea time treat that cook on the stove top rather than the oven. They are the perfect way to celebrate St. David’s Day.
As part of the Queen’s 70th Jubilee there was a competition to create a pudding. I decided to have a go and created this ode to Tea and Biscuits for the Queen’s Platinum Pudding competition.
You need very little baking skill to make these delicious Apple Turnovers. They are delicious hot with custard or cold with a drizzle of double cream.
Danish Rice Pudding is a world away from the hot version I ate growing up. This version comes with its own game where the prize includes bragging rights!
Sticky Toffee Pudding is a wonderful winter dessert. The sponge is light and the sauce is dark and sticky.
It’s easy to make your own pumpkin pie in the UK since the large supermarkets started selling tinned pumpkin. This iconic North American dessert is beautifully spiced with a soft texture.
October is the best month to get your Christmas Pudding started so that all the flavours can develop and deepen. Everyone gets a stir of the mixture and makes a wish. It’s a lovely glimpse of the warmth and festivities to come.
As baking is not my forte I have to rely on idiot-proof recipes and Magic Layer Cake is one of them. The magic comes as the one batter splits into 3 delicious layers as it bakes. The custard middle makes this cake taste like Crème Brûlée.
This iced biscuit recipe is kid-proof because it can be handled a lot and still bake well. It doesn’t need to be chilled before baking and doesn’t spread in the oven. It’s a real friend.
Imagine a hot, slightly boozy pain au chocolat and you’ve got this dessert. When I have stale bread I knock up this pudding because it’s incredibly easy to make and tastes amazing.
