Banana Nut Mini Cheesecakes

Made these scrummy mini banana nut cheesecakes to test out my new Baker’s Pride loose-bottomed tin and they turned out great. The boyfriend will now have the honour of carting the lot to the office tomorrow and we will see how they are received by this co-workers. The pan itself was a delight to use and it produced a very even bake. Pleased with purchase. God bless Amazon.

Dark Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

Back from Iceland, moved into new apartment and then I baked this. I have never baked a chocolate cheesecake before but then I thought “how hard can it be, right?” Standard cheesecake method, just add melted chocolate. Sorted. Haha. Anyway, this cheesecake tart is divine and all I am saying is you should make it too.

Spiced Vanilla Flan & Brandied Sultanas

I saw this recipe by accident one day while randomly flipping the pages of an Italian cookbook somewhere in Co Roscommin. The idea was to recreate the look but with a flavour variation, in this instance I made mine a spiced vanilla version with some punchy sultanas that have been steeped in brandy and golden syrup for over a week.

However, for some the thought of sitting down to Christmas dinner with the prospect of having traditional pudding for afters is not such a holiday treat. Here is an alternative that will please all those fussy festive diners.

Wow, my first trip to the USA and I actually had time to make dessert and feature a new blog post – that’s never happened before. Well the month long holiday has well and truly come to an end. We have packed up and left New York and arrived home today. It is approximately 3 am and I am wide awake after having slept significantly in the afternoon. So screwed. Write blog post. Enjoy.

Lemon Blueberry Streusel Cake

Been meaning to do this for a while now, one of those tray-bakes that end up being cut into delightful squares and stacked on top of each other. Tray-bakes are also fun and easy to do, with a million varieties just waiting to be explored. Today I made my first which was meant for a tea party I was meant to attend.

Buttery Marble Cake

I like old-time favourites like this simple butter cake which I then turned into a visually pleasing marble cake. It is moist and flavourful, with a generous hit of chocolatey goodness. No icing needed … just the way I like it. Mmmm, I think I will have more tea with my cake, please.

Orange Tea Poppy Seed Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

There I was, trying to use up as many ingredients in my pantry as possible before the cleaners came to rearrange everything in the house. I had asked a friend round for tea and thus, I had to dig out a few cake-making appliances despite me having packed them all up a week ago.
