Fruit really isn’t particularly popular in this household and I definitely struggle with finding fruity puddings that appeal to everyone. So, having got inspiration from my brand new cookery …

Oaty Apple Crumble

Oaty Apple Crumble

If you’re British people presume that you live off apple crumble and custard. To be honest it’s never been my favourite, mainly due to bad school food consisting of various sponge puddi…

Berry Coulis

Berry Coulis

I’ve used this delicious sauce in a myriad of ways this week…. On it’s own, on ice cream, in my fromage frais recipe and in a fruit fool. Use any berry you like (I used strawberri…

Toffee and Raisin Cookies

Toffee and Raisin Cookies

I think I’ve been making too many chocolate biscuits recently – although they’re the family favourite – so today I made some Toffee and Raisin Cookies, just for a change. I …

At Last An Egg-Free Frangipane

At Last An Egg-Free Frangipane

This is the recipe for the frangipane layer used in the Knockout Pear and Almond Pastries that I posted yesterday. I thought it was probably worth posting the recipe for just the frangipane as I&#8…

Knockout Pear and Almond pastries (aka Jalousie aux Poires)

Knockout Pear and Almond pastries (aka Jalousie aux Poires)

It worked! I am so, so pleased! :-) My second foray into making French patisserie (as taught by the wonderful Claire Clark when she was a teacher at Le Cordon Bleu) but egg and dairy-free, has turn…

Blueberry and Banana Cake

Blueberry and Banana Cake

I had an hour before the girls got home from school and the snack options were looking pretty non-existent – I seem to have stopped buying a lot of snacks with all the baking I’ve been …

Speedy Homemade Raspberry jam

Speedy Homemade Raspberry jam

The bounty from the PYO needed to be used up as fast as possible – it’s funny how real fresh fruit goes off far faster than shop bought varieties… I wonder why?!! In fact, after w…

Plum Streusel Cake

Plum Streusel Cake

Oh the folly of it! The ripe, reduced plums in the supermarket looked so tempting – it was only when I got them home that it became clear why they were on special offer – over-ripe is s…

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes

Apparently this week is National Cupcake week – a slightly tenuous reason for a celebration if you ask me, but then again the cake tin was looking all empty and lonely, and any excuse to bake…

Cherry Berry Compote

Cherry Berry Compote

The remaining punnet of lovely local strawberries was starting to look a bit sorry in the fridge, and there was a big handful of very very ripe cherries. What to do? I couldn’t waste this ber…

Apple Galette

Apple Galette

It’s October, and Autumn has very much arrived in the UK – it suddenly feels much cooler (I must get those winter clothes out of the loft!), the days are noticeably getting shorter and …

Egg-free Raspberry Pavlova

Egg-free Raspberry Pavlova

Here’s the second outing for my winning no egg meringue recipe – this time making one large meringue as the base for a Pavlova (for the lovely Somer, you can still have a Pavlova! :-)).…

Apple and Cinnamon Cake

Apple and Cinnamon Cake

I don’t seem to be making much headway with the piles of apples that need using up. I haven’t had time to make chutney and apple galette doesn’t exactly use up many apples! This c…

Fruit Leather

Fruit Leather

My children love fruity snacks – I guess I’ve always given them quite a lot as they’re generally safe and fairly easy to find. I had never really thought of making them until I sa…

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Yesterday was a REALLY stressful day at work and I didn’t even have time for any lunch – I can tell you, I was a big mess by the end of the day! So, on the way home, in order to satisfy…

Celeriac, Apple and Thyme Soup

Celeriac, Apple and Thyme Soup

It’s snowing today in the UK – proper piles of fluffy white stuff everywhere! We normally have a little sprinkle of snow that melts almost immediately, so a decent amount of snow is a r…

Crumble Topped Apple and Apricot Pie

Crumble Topped Apple and Apricot Pie

I’ve mentioned before that puddings are difficult if you’re dairy, egg and nut-free – you really can have too much soya yogurt! I’m not much of a pie maker, but pies make lo…
