Pear & Lemon Muffins

Pear & Lemon Muffins A

I told you I loved pear! This time round I’ve thrown pieces into a muffin mix along with lemon juice and zest to create a delicately flavoured treat. Muffins are usually best eaten the day they are made but I had one of these three days later and it tasted just as good!

Mascarpone & Pear Pots

Mascarpone & Pear Pots

Pears are undeniably one of my favourite fruits. Whether eating them fresh or in a dessert, I love pears! This recipe is reminiscent of cheesecake but a little bit more grown-up. Laced with ginger and adorned with shards of brandy snaps, these little pots are delectable!

Jaggery & Apple Upside-down Cake

Jaggery & Apple Upside-down Cake

I was first introduced to jaggery by Urvashi from GBBO and since then I’ve always remembered the intense sweetness and unique taste – it’s like eating amber that melts on the tongue. For such a simple product of cane juice, it packs loads of flavour and aroma, and gives the apples on this cake a truly polished shine.

Key Lime Puddings

Key Lime Puddings A

Here I’ve captured a summer dessert in a winter one. Bringing the layers and flavours of a Key Lime Pie to the humble steamed pudding. I’ve suggested serving it with custard or ice cream, nonetheless, I think lime curd swirled through yoghurt would be fitting too.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves A

During autumn I love crunching leaves underfoot, so I thought why not make some autumn leaves to crunch on indoors. A cute little twist on gingerbread, these are easy to make and their miniature size will fill any biscuit tin just like leaves in a park.

Chocolate & Hazelnut Steamed Puddings

Chocolate & Hazelnut Steamed Puddings A

I cannot lie, this recipe was inspired by an incredibly tasty dessert I had a beautiful [sourdough] pizza restaurant. A rich chocolatey sponge enhanced with ground hazelnuts and topped with chopped hazelnuts. I’ve done this as a steamed version but if you wish to experience something closer the original place the cooked puddings in the fridge overnight and serve chilled. One word: lush!

Moroccan Mint Tea Loaf

Moroccan Mint Tea Loaf A

Is it bread? Is it cake? I’ll let you decide. Tea loaves have that ambiguous quality that makes them unique as well as being satisfying to eat, for breakfast or simply as a snack. This tea loaf is studded with golden raisins and pine nuts, and fragranced with mint for a North African twist on a British classic. (Golden raisins are readily available in health food stores.)
