Brioche and Mincemeat Pudding

Brioche and Mincemeat Pudding

Using up leftovers after Christmas is really satisfying, with this recipe I cleared the cupboard of a jar of mincemeat which wasn’t used to make mince pies, a pack of brioche rolls AND a carton of readymade custard. This brioche and mincemeat pudding is the […]

Following hot on the heels on from my slow cooker turkey crown is another Christmas recipe! My slow cooker mincemeat pudding is simple to make, can be made at the last minute if you missed Stir Up Sunday, and is full of festive flavours!

Anyone for tennis? It’s Wimbledon fortnight so dessert must contain strawberries this week, right? My easy strawberry mousse cake is a perfect way to celebrate the championships in SW19, or just a good way to end a summer’s day!

Sugar-free Apricot Pavlova

Sugar-free Apricot Pavlova

Sometimes you want dessert but you don’t want it to be too full of sugar. I thought I would try making a sugar-free pavlova using sweetener instead of sugar, because on the latest WeightWatchers plan which I’m following at the moment, egg whites (and eggs) […]

Plum and Blood Orange Cobbler

Plum and Blood Orange Cobbler

When it is so cold I really enjoy a hot dessert to warm me up. Of course the traditional British dessert has to be a crumble, and I really enjoy apple crumble. But if you want to make the most of the seasonal fruit it […]

Hasn’t it been cold recently?! When it is chilly I think we all want to enjoy a hot pudding now and again, and we also crave comforting food from our childhood. Well that is certainly true for me anyway. I remembered a packet of pudding rice […]

Slow Cooker Strawberry Jam and Scone Pudding

Slow Cooker Strawberry Jam and Scone Pudding

While the sun does keep showing its face here, it quickly disappears behind clouds to produce April showers with a bite to the wind. After a long day walking in the countryside and working up a healthy appetite, I found some scones that needed to […]

Slow Cooker Rhubarb Cobbler

There’s something about these last days of winter, when all the signs of spring are there, but there is a biting cold wind and you can really feel the chill when you go outside. I am itching to get out in my garden and plant […]
