Easy French Apple Cake
Easy French apple cake is really a lot of apple with a little bit of batter joining the apples together, baked till tender then a sugary, butter topping finishes off the cake. It’s more of a crustless tart than a cake, and perfect for serving after a hearty meal.
Orange and Almond Cake
Orange and Almond Cake is very moreish, moist, nutty and very orangy. It is a cake that we feel should be in every cooks repertoire, if you haven’t come cross this famous cake till now you’re in for a real treat. Gluten and dairy free too, it ticks a lot of boxes.
Easy Crustless Lemon Tart
Easy Crustless Lemon Tart is super quick to prepare and totally delicious. You need this recipe in your repertoire! It’s soft, creamy and very lemony. In fact, it almost smacks you with the lemon ‘hit’. Just our sort of lemon dessert!
Italian Lemon Mascarpone Tart
Italian lemon mascarpone tart is creamy, tangy, lemony and delicious. Our friend Elle gave us this recipe and it’s one that she makes throughout the year. Elle uses a quality store bought artisan pastry which makes this super quick to put together.
Although the recipe reads like war and peace with so many instructions it really is just a case of making and blind baking the pastry shell, make the filling in a food processor, then baking.
Sicilian Apple Cake
Sicilian Apple Cake is an easy cake to make. In fact, it’s more a little bit of batter holding loads of sweet sliced apples, raisins and toasted pine nuts altogether. Finished off with a good dusting of sugar and cinnamon, and you’ve made a cake that is a winner.
The apples melt into the batter creating an almost custard like filling, and the raisins become all ‘jammy’ and sweet. The pine nuts add a little crunch all the way through the cake along with the walnut crust on the outside which makes for a great textured cake.
Chocolate Almond Cake
Chocolate almond cake is one stunning rich, dense, fudgy and very chocolatey little number. One that you need in your repertoire. Just 5 ingredients and 50 minutes cooking till you’ve got a cake that will win over everyone.
Now this cake would be a ten served just as is with some freshly whipped cream, but to really turn it into a ‘little black dress of cakes’ we slather it with chocolate ganache, and then sprinkle with toasted almonds. OMG, talk about over the top, but in a really elegant way this cake will turn any meal into fine dining.
Chocolate Nemesis Cake
Chocolate Nemesis Cake is best described as an ultra chocolate, ultra smooth, chocolate mousse cake that’s so smooth it just melts on the palate leaving you wanting more. This is a must try cake for all of the chocolate lovers of the world.
Lemon Delicious Pudding

This amazing lemon delicious recipe has the best light and airy sponge and a stunning lemon sauce, that makes the perfect pudding. Quick and easy to make this is a winner.
Pear and Almond Tart
This delicious pear and almond crustless tart is a fabulously easy dessert to make and is a firm favourite when a quick flavour packed dessert is needed. It pays to have a tin of pear halves in the pantry along with almond flour (almond meal) ready to make this delicious dessert.
Pear and almonds are one of those food marriages that just works and the good news is it is easily converted to gluten free – just replace the 2 tablespoons of flour with gluten free flour. Top it off with some softly whipped cream and you’re ready to go.
