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.

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.

Apple & Blueberry Lattice Pie

Today I am trying my hand at the thing I dread the most … making pie crust from scratch. Yikes! Very nervous but hey, I thought if I didn’t try it I’d never get over the phobia … so I did. And what came out of that oven was nothing short of a miracle. I couldn’t believe how I had managed to bake my first American-style pie from scratch and it turned out in one piece, looking every inch like how I had envisioned a pie to be.

Banana Custard Cream Pie with Warm Chocolate Sauce

Freshly sliced bananas laid over creamy homemade banana custard … all cradled in a crisp shortbread crust … finished off with a light drizzle of warm chocolate sauce. This combination cannot be beat. I took the concept from my all time favourite crêpe filling; brilliant in summer, especially with a side of freshly whipped chantilly cream.

Apple Tart with Salted Caramel Drizzle

This tart was inspired by my recent trip to Brittany, France. We went for just a weekend and returned home with quite a few delicious local products, one of them being a jar of St-Malo salted butter caramel. Warm tart, gooey caramel and a scoop of vanilla ice cream … sounds like perfection to me.
