No Bake Fig, Honey & Walnut Tarts

Each year it’s difficult to let the summer go but with the autumn bringing me such tempting delights as apples, grapes & figs, I can almost forgive it for abandoning me (almost). Each gorgeous fruit has it’s own appeal but none quite compare to the dusky-skinned, luscious fig. Thought to be one of the oldest …

Blackcurrant Tarts

June & July are blackcurrant season in the garden. Harvesting actually does span over two months for me because our blackcurrant bush is very old, very big & its fruit continues to ripen at different stages in early summer. It’s one of the few nice things that I actually inherited with my house. The previous …

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. It’s been the sunniest Spring on record for the UK, actually exceeding the amount of sunshine we’d usually see for most of our summer months! So whilst we may not …

Pumpkin Pie

Not just for jack’o’lanterns or soup, pumpkins are so much more than we give them credit for.

(well other than the healthy alternative of simply fruit that is). As temperatures rise, nights draw longer & (hopefully) the sun begins to shine we are blessed with a plethora of colourful fruity offerings. It’s the season of preserving, foraging & green fingers. This year …

White Chocolate & Cherry Tart

The Cherry On Top Plump, glistening, crimson & succulent… the most eye-catching, instagram-worthy fruit of summer has arrived, cherries. Sweet or sour, I love these little stone fruits & can easily devour a punnet in one swift sitting (with the distinct crimson stained hands of shame). As anyone in the UK will know, unfortunately whilst …

Fig Crostata

Travelling Jam We’re still in the eternally long & poor month of January, but 2017 is already shaping up to be a cracking year for this baker. No, I haven’t been signed to write ‘The Marmalade Teapot Baking Book’ or been left a large some of money from a long-lost relative (it is early in the year …

Festive Tart

The Christmas Archive It began with list…  in late November 2013, a list containing every imaginable festive bake, from yule log to panettone, was created by one ambitious baker. The list was long, extensive & full of ideas (& the occasional doodle). Over the coming years, the list became ever shorter as recipes were completed …
