Black Forest Cheesecake Brownies

Black Forest Cheesecake Brownies F

Yes, these do taste as amazing as they look! (If I say so myself hehe.) Cheesecake brownies are such a dangerous invention, as if cheesecake AND brownies weren’t dangerous enough! The rich, creamy swirl contrasts with the dark, sweet brownie while the whole thing is brought alive with black cherries. These brownies will put a smile on anybody’s face  and what’s more, they’re really easy to make!

Cherry Crumble Pie

Cherry Crumble Pie A

 

Is the crumble too humble for you? If so, then try a crumble pie! The cross between a crumble and pie resulting in a tart (somehow) is rather sophisticated I like to think, yet still very homely at its heart. Just like the traditional crumble it’s all about lots of comforting flavour, this one just looks a bit more fancy!

Florentine Cake

Florentine Cake B

 

Toasting the ground almonds for this cake enhances the nutty flavour and the oils from the nuts give the cake its moist, rich texture. Decorate with a drizzle of chocolate and more cherries for a real teatime treat!

Chocolate Bloghop: Chocolate & Cherry Tart

I love chocolate, not sure I’m a chocoholic but I sure do love it. So the #chocolatelove bloghop came along I was pretty happy. I first came up with this recipe a couple months ago and fell in love with it from the first bite. Crisp shortcrust pastry, sweet cherry compote and rich chocolate ganache. I’m not usually a fan of dark chocolate but paired with something sweet I think it works beautifully. Click here for the recipe


Cherry Turnovers

So it’s been a while, but I’ve been baking a lot – trust me. I had this crazified idea to make my own puff pastry, you know like one of those life aims (although it wasn’t that high up on the list but relatively easy to achieve), but I decided to take it a little further, not only would I make my own puff pastry but I would make something with it – crazy right?! The following recipe was a winner with my flatmates and I think is a cool take on the traditional apple turnover. I’ll be honest and tell you the first time I made them they were too sweet for me but I reduced the sugar content and they are delish. Ironically I’ve suggested using shop-bought puff pastry as I don’t think making it was quite worth the effort (more time-consuming than tiring, mind you) and you’ll get more consistent results using the ready-made stuff. But if your heart so desires give home-made puff pastry a go, you might just surprise yourself! 😉 Click here for the recipe
