Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Pudding

These Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Puddings could not be easier and are just so delicious. And with that slight chill in the air I think they are a dessert fitting for Easter weekend coming up. Someone tweeted the other day that her dinner was sorted for the next two months now that hot cross buns have hot the shelves. I had to laugh as I am sure many of us have had hot cross buns for dinner. Toasted, slathered with…

Caramel Poached Clementines

These Caramel Poached Clementines has to be my favourite dessert of the moment. So much so that if we had citrus fruit during Xmas this would be my number one Xmas dessert. And as you can see I am so happy with the photos so the post is jam packed with them. The addition of the brandy and vanilla adds to the exceptional layers of flavour of the dessert.

Just after I had made the Lemon Yoghurt Cake I posted a few weeks ago, I came across this Lemon Yoghurt Apple Cake on Pinterest. It looked so delicious, it immediately went…

I saw the link to this Frozen Zabaglione recipe on my Twitter feed and immediately wanted to make it. It was originally published in The New York Times by David Tanis, as part of his column titled “An Inspired Lunch Puts Brunch to Shame”. Brunch seems to be quite the American trend which has not quite caught on here. And when we “do brunch”, it will be for more special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries, rather than a weekend ritual. Unless…
