Banana Layer Slab

Banana Layer Slab B

Banana and pecan that classic combo, paired here with chocolate (an all-time favourite) into a five-layer dessert. I agree the name ‘slab’ is a bit heavy-handed, but I couldn’t think of a way to describe it better, so here it is: Banana Layer Slab!

Mini Chocolate & Raspberry Tarts

Mini Chocolate & Raspberry Tarts B

These mini tarts are perfect if you’re having a dinner party and want to serve a selection of mini desserts. The flavours are intense, yet the package small so one feels indulgent but not greedy.

Or chill for at least an hour to set the filling if you want something a little more classy… Click here for the recipe


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


Chocolatiers’ Shortbread

During this time of fervent revision when the library is open 24 hours and many students are in ‘constant study’ mode, I’ve found myself baking – somehow not a big surprise. I think traybakes are really homely and it doesn’t usually take much effort to create something delicious looking and delicious tasting (the proof for me being that I had all the ingredients without knowing I was gonna make it!). This is my take on Millionaires’ Shortbread, those lovely layers of shortbread, caramel and chocolate, transformed for all the chocolate lovers out there! I wouldn’t call myself a chocolate addict, but a part-time fanatic, yes, maybe. Click here for the recipe
