Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake

If you are looking for a rich and luxurious cake as a christmas cake but not the traditional fruit cake this Hazelnut Olive Oil Cake with Fresh Plums could be a delicious option for something different and summery. The recipe is from Milk and Honey, one of my favourite blogs. I made Jennifer’s recipe a while back and it is absolutely delicious. She made it with a divine coffee cream filling and decadent ganache topping and I urge you to…

Olive Oil Pound Cake

I tracked down the recipe for this Olive Oil Pound Cake after seeing a photo for the most beautiful bundt cake on Twitter. I suffered some serious bundt pan envy for a while and thanks to Google Translate I was able to get the jist of the recipe as the original recipe is in Spanish. I loved the use of olive oil in the recipe and knew I had to bake it.  The result was a delicious moist cake with…

The cupcakes are sweet and the ganache is sweet as well so you need another flavour to cut through all the sweetness and the sourness of the Crème Fraiche does the job perfectly. And luckily there is a bit of ganache left over which…

Sausage Breakfast Cake

This Sausage Breakfast Cake is a based on a Strata which I always thought was an Italian dish but turns out to be an American brunch casserole dish. It usually contains, bread, eggs and milk, so it is somewhere between a savoury bread pudding, a frittata and a quiche. Just a slightly more glamourous if I have to say so myself and a definite recipe to have on stand by if you need to feed a crowd. I originally made…

Persian Love Cake with Caramel Brandy Poached Apples

I recently spent the most wonderful day in the company of Pink Lady Apples and Top Fruit. We were invited to visit the packing facilities as well as one of the farms in Ceres where Pink Lady apples are grown. The day was a fascinating insight into the journey a Pink Lady Apple takes from the moment it is picked until you take it off the shelf at the grocer. A lot of special care is taken during the process…
