Orange & Rosemary Cake

Orange & Rosemary Cake A

The thing I love most about this cake is the texture. Not quite a frangipane, not quite a sponge, the balance of ground almonds and self-raising flour gives this cake a magical quality. Indulgent yet light and bursting with fresh flavour. This cake is lovely as a little afternoon treat and also a great way to round off a meal. I recommend serving it with a segment of orange and a small sprig of rosemary to garnish a dollop mascarpone.

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!

Honeyed Fig Cheesecake

So this is a recipe I came up with a while ago, that I’m proud to finally publish on my blog (sorry for the absence). It marries the beautiful flavours of figs, mascarpone and honey into one of my favourite desserts – cheesecake! The mascarpone adds a really rich creaminess to the filling, while the sweetness of the figs is with the reinforced with the honey and spiced with a bit of cinnamon. Dried figs work well here if you are unable to get hold of fresh figs. Click here for the recipe
