Banana Brownies

Banana Brownies G

This decadent brownie was inspired by a very delicious milkshake I once had (well, thrice had – it was that good!). A slab of brownie blended with a whole banana plus milk and a squeeze of honey into the best milkshake I’ve ever tasted. Hands down. Here I’ve cooked down the banana with warming cinnamon and swirled it through a brownie that is chewy and gooey and chocolatey. Yes please!

Black Forest Cheesecake Brownies

Black Forest Cheesecake Brownies F

Yes, these do taste as amazing as they look! (If I say so myself hehe.) Cheesecake brownies are such a dangerous invention, as if cheesecake AND brownies weren’t dangerous enough! The rich, creamy swirl contrasts with the dark, sweet brownie while the whole thing is brought alive with black cherries. These brownies will put a smile on anybody’s face  and what’s more, they’re really easy to make!

Chocolate, Hazelnut and Pear Friands

Chocolate, Hazelnut and Pear Friands A

I was about to write that friands are one of my favourite kinds of cake, what with their moist, close texture and nutty flavour, and then I thought against this since I write that almost every recipe is one of my favourites. But then I came to my senses and realised that of course I’m going to write about so many recipes being my favourites otherwise I wouldn’t be posting them! So yes, friands, one of my favourite kinds of cake and this, one of my favourite recipes. I hope you like these as much as I do!

Salted Caramel Cheesecake

Salted Caramel Cheesecake C
Who doesn’t like cheesecake! Cheesecake is indulgent on so many layers (pardon the pun) – the crunchy base, the creamy filling, the sweet/fruity/other topping – and this a perfect example. I’ve always been more of a fan of chilled cheesecake, as you can’t beat the smooth creaminess, but baked cheesecakes are winning over my heart. And here’s one to win over yours. The ever popular salted caramel adorning a vanilla filling and shortbread base – yum yum yum!

Malted Chocolate Cubes

Malted Chocolate Cubes B

I love this chocolate cake recipe, it’s rich and moist and super-chocolatey! Topped with malted frosting and a Malteser for good measure, they make quick and easy petits fours. I particularly like these chilled, amping up the luxury factor!

Double Chocolate Muffins

Double Chocolate Muffins A

What’s not to like? Muffins with a double dose of chocolate. Unless you don’t like chocolate…

Well I do, and I love these muffins! Great with a cup of tea at around 11am (or 11pm) or have them as dessert served warm with ice cream – yes please!

Oaty Biscuits

Oaty Biscuits C

You’ll probably recognise these, if you don’t then give it time (but don’t stress yourself). Either way, they are lush! Crunchy, oaty, chocolatey, tasty! I’ve used dark chocolate which works really well but if you’re making for kids I’d swap it for milk chocolate – 10 year old me wouldn’t have gone near dark chocolate ones! Another tip is to store them in the fridge (in an air-tight container) as the chocolate takes that bit longer to melt on the tongue mmm…
