Fresh Fruit Tart with Mascarpone

At this time of year there is nothing better than a nice fruit tart, made with fresh summer fruits.  I therefore decided to make such a tart but, instead of the more usual creme patissiere that acts as the bed for the fruit I decided to use mascarpone, and some white chocolate. That combination, with […]

Fresh Fruit & Custard Tarts

At the height of summer. on a warm and sunny day, there is nothing quite so refreshing as a small dessert which includes some fresh fruit. So this recipe, for a lovely buttery pastry case which holds a thick, creamy custard and is then topped with some raspberries, blueberries and kiwi fruit, is just perfect. […]


Raspberry Muffins

I had some frozen raspberries in the freezer so I decided that today I would use them to make some muffins.  I found a very nice recipe on aburstfullofbeautiful which seemed to be exactly what I wanted.

Having recently discovered friands and made some with lemons and blueberries, which were very well received, I decided to try a variation on the recipe to include chocolate.  Thus I came u p with Chocolate and Raspberry Friands.

Raspberry Financiers

Those of you who may follow my blog postings will know that I love Financiers.  Today I made some, with raspberries too.  Financiers are a wonderfully moist almond cake and these, today, with the raspberry are simply delicious. In my previous versions of financiers I have always chilled the batter overnight before baking.  But since […]


Lemon & Raspberry Cheesecake

I have been thinking about trying to make cheesecake for a while.  I read a number of recipes and watched a few videos before coming up with what I wanted.  This was a Lemon & Raspberry Cheesecake, which has a digestive biscuit base and then a baked cheese, flavoured with lemon juice and zest and […]
