Still loving the fresh English rhubarb that’s in season I bought 4 sticks today to make a super quick crumble. I’m flavouring it with basil, the two go so well together, and making a basil cream to top it off. The crumble mix couldn’t be easier, and gives a bit of crunch to the topping. Flavouring the cream with a little basil adds even more summer flavour to the pudding. Continue reading
Based on the great meringue picnic disaster at Eton this lovely summery dessert couldn’t be easier to make and is enhanced with the scent and taste of elderflowers.
I love the scent of elderflowers in the house when making cordial, (there’s definitely a candle fragrance to be made by someone who knows how!)
Oh so simple and so tasty. The perfect quick dessert for a sweet English treat. Glorious strawberry ice cream with fresh English strawberries. I bought a pot of delicious strawberry jam in the Cowdray Farm Shop on my day trip yesterday. What’s especially nice about it is it’s high strawberry content – 81%. It inspired a quick dessert! Ready in no time. Continue reading
I fancy something sweet for supper tonight and I’ve got a pot of double cream looking for something to do. So I thought I’d try marmalade ice cream (I’ve always thought it would be a delicious ice cream flavour!).
A really tasty jelly dessert with a summery basil cream. This seems very retro to me, so many happy early memories eating jelly, I think it’s almost fashionable again!
This must be one of the most delicious and simple English desserts. A delightful flurry of gorgeous creamy fool with the tart contrast of rhubarb. A sprig of mint on top and you are transported to the kitchen garden!
These are not, as the name implies, supposed to be eaten straight from the oven, tempting though that may be! These are brownies flavoured with chilli to give a little kick. Something tasty to enjoy with a cup of coffee as a decadent dessert tonight, if you can wait that long!
