Puddings

Layered Meringue Cake

Layered Meringue Cake

Last week was Desserts week on Great British Bake Off, did you catch it? I remember making a self-saucing pudding when I was baking along with the Desserts episode of the show last year. The puddings this year were all rather daunting – crème brûlée […]

Blackberry and Rose Crumble

Blackberry and Rose Crumble

I wasn’t planning on blogging this recipe but it turned out to be very tasty so I thought it would be good to keep a record of it here, and share it with you, my readers, of course! Yet again I took my children to […]

Slow Cooker Brioche and Strawberry Pudding

Slow Cooker Brioche and Strawberry Pudding

Delicious brioche and strawberry pudding made in the slow cooker! Why not treat yourself to a summery dessert that is so easy to make. Although it seems to be summer now (at last, hasn’t it been a long time coming), I think there are still […]

Nielsen-Massey Baked Vanilla Cheesecake

Nielsen-Massey Baked Vanilla Cheesecake

When Baking Mad got in touch and asked if I would like to try out one of their vanilla-based recipes using Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract, I was very keen to do so. The scent of vanilla has to be one of my favourites in baking, and […]

Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings are very naughty but could be ideal for a sweet chocolate treat for your Valentine! Or if not sophisticated enough for that, it would be the perfect comfort food for a cold winter’s day. Chocolate dumplings, cooked in a rich and […]

Slow Cooker Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding

Slow Cooker Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding

Here’s a naughty but nice seasonal treat I made today for my family’s pudding – slow cooker panettone bread and butter pudding. I had a stale panettone that needed to be used up (just a cheap supermarket one) and made a bread and butter pudding […]

Pistachio Dacquoise with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Pistachio Dacquoise with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Last week on British Bakeoff was Patisserie week and also the semi-finals, so I was rather worried about what to make this week for #GreatBloggersBakeOff and GBBO Bake-along! I am not that keen on Baklava, have a ridiculous grill which ruled out the Schichttorte, and […]

Mini Blueberry and Lime Self-Saucing Pudding

Mini Blueberry and Lime Self-Saucing Pudding

I have just come back from a week’s holiday in France, near La Rochelle, but I just had to get baking for Desserts week on Great British Bake-Off! I had some lovely blueberries and thought I’d make one of these self-saucing puddings as I have […]

Kiwi Satsuma Curd and a Kiwi Curd Eton Mess Dessert

Kiwi Satsuma Curd and a Kiwi Curd Eton Mess Dessert

I love the refreshing taste of lemon curd but during the summer I like to try all the different summer fruits. I’ve baked with redcurrants, cherries, blackcurrants (in this lovely blackcurrant focaccia), mango and blueberries, as well as the usual strawberries and raspberries already this […]

Berry Sponge Pudding

Berry Sponge Pudding

A berry sponge pudding is a great, quick and easy dessert to make when you are short on time but want to enjoy a pudding with your meal. Tip frozen berries into a dish, make a quick sponge cake mixture, then bake in the oven. […]

Slow Cooker Self-saucing Lime and Coconut Pudding

Slow Cooker Self-saucing Lime and Coconut Pudding

I had some lovely fresh limes, and some desiccated coconut left over from my recent coconut and lime and chocolate and coconut cakes (here and here) so thought I would try a self saucing pudding with lime sauce. I had recently seen a couple of […]
