DAIRY FREE DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE


Chocolate mousse has long been a family favourite. Before my mum and auntie made it, so did both my grandmas, I couldn’t wait to get to dessert when I knew this was on the menu. I have always found this dessert comforting,  gooey and light but rich so that you can taste the complexity of the…

APPLE, BERRY AND ORANGE CRUMBLE


I wondered if there was a connection between being Jew-ish and the fact a fruit crumble often appears as a frequent dessert offering for a family Friday night dinner. So I googled, Jew and Crumble and the answer is no, a ton of other things came up, use your imagination … moving on. Jane, my mother, always…

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE POTS WITH RASPBERRIES


It is a simple fact I LOVE chocolate. If I were ever stranded on a desert island I, would crave ‘Mini Eggs’ specifically, they are my ultimate weakness. (Who needs flowers when there are ‘Mini Eggs’). But I could also devour Cadbury’s ‘Dairy milk’, ‘Twirl’, ‘Green and Blacks Butterscotch’, any time of day – yes even at breakfast….

QUICK RASPBERRY AMARETTO ALMOND CAKE – lemon pistachio icing


Stumbling across a recipe that is so simple but yet has a beautiful outcome is a rare find. Time spent well searching the internet for the best cakey- desserty-thingy that I could prepare in under fifteen minutes, and feature almond and raspberries led me to this triumph. You can always rely on the BBC Good…

HILARY’S -SPELT FLOUR GOATS CHEESE LAVENDER PANCAKES


I have to thank the wonderful Hilary Doyle for this recipe, which she concocted whilst on our road trip in Prince Edward County, a very picturesque part of Ontario Canada. Whilst staying in a house in Picton, (that gifted me a bat in my bedroom!!!) Hilary against all kitchen odds in a terribly laid out…

MY JEW-ISH QUICK BERRY CUPCAKE CHEESECAKES


There is little I need to write about these bites of creamy deliciousness. After all who doesn’t love both cupcakes and cheesecakes, so I thought to myself why not combine the two? I also didn’t have the time to bake a whole cheesecake and leave it overnight to cool slowly, so these mini versions were…

RASPBERRY CRUMB BARS – THANKS INA


There isn’t much to say about this recipe from Ina Garten’s new cookbook FOOLPROOF other than amazing. I have now made this recipe four times, it always looks impressive and receive lots of agreeable noises. Believe it or not it is a simple recipe and can really be rustled up in about 15 minutes, before being baked. This is…

PUMPKIN SPICED CUPCAKES WITH A MAPLE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING


Big apologies for the delay in this recipe, I was meant to post it about 2 months ago around thanksgiving time but life took over.  So I suppose better late them never. While on my weekly supermarket shop, it was the first time in the UK that I had ever seen canned pumpkin brace our…
