Perfect Chocolate Biscuits, or Cookies

I recently read an article by Felicity Cloake in the Guardian, on how to make the perfect chocolate biscuit.  That is a chooclate flavoured one, rather than with melted chocolate on the top. I was intrigued and, happily, Felicity had tried recipes from several sources before arriving at what she called the perfect version.  So […]


White Chocolate Brownies

White Chocolate Brownies are a very nice variant on the more common, and very popular, brownie recipe. This particular recipe is to replace a bake I did that wasn’t as successful as I wanted it.  What a very nice replacement too, since it has a lovely texture and flavour and is very simple to make. […]


Chocolate Pistacchio Fudge

I have seen several recipes for a form of fudge, with nuts in.   But the fudge is such that it doesn’t need  to be boiled up to a very high temperature.  It is not a true fudge, but is very similar and so easy to make.  Using chocolate, nuts, condensed milk and a little butter […]

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Today I have a lovely recipe, from BBC Good Food, for a Chocolate Fudge Cake.  This is a single layer cake, but could quite easily be turned into two layers by doubling the recipe to create two cakes and then maybe filling with a chocolate buttercream, using some of the frosting from the recipe.   […]


Bourbon Biscuit Dessert

Bourbon biscuits are a favourite in the UK.  They are two chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with a chocolate cream filling.  I found a recipe for a dessert(he called it pudding) in Gary Rhodes’ Step by Step Cooking.  It was for two large bourbon biscuits, sandwiched by two layers of chocolate brownie and a layer of […]

Easter Nest – With Mini Eggs

I often watch videos from Sorted Food, which is a group of guys having far more fun that should be legal, whilst cooking.  One of their latest videos was for an Edible Nest, that looked so easy and would be a lovely presentation piece on a table.  So I decided I would make one too. […]
