Peach & Caramel Paris-Brest

It’s not often that I get the pull to create something with many elements or patisserie worthy but every now & again, it comes along. Most recently it was when I was wondering what I could do with a small collection of beautifully ripe peaches. I wanted something a little different that usual, not necessarily …

Nutty Caramel Cake

What do you get your mam for Mother’s Day when the world is in lockdown? Besides a crappy card that says ‘mum’ on it or some overpriced flowers, there aren’t really a lot of options. So why not make her something I thought. Something sweet, delicious & personal. My mam loves anything to do with …

No Bake Coffee Hazelnut Tart

Whilst lockdown life isn’t ideal, I think we can all be grateful here in the UK that we’ve been blessed with some unseasonably stunning weather.

Salted Caramel

Sweet, sticky, buttery liquid gold, who doesn’t love caramel? It tastes amazing with absolutely anything it touches, anything! You’ve really hit the jackpot though if it accompanies any nuts or chocolate. Probably one of my earliest experiences of caramel would be the now extinct Cadbury Taz bar (like a Freddo but better!), for just 10p of …
