Apricot & Ginger Friands

Apricot & Ginger Friands

These friands are flavoured with dried apricot, one of the better looking dried fruits due to their lovely orange colour. What’s more, their subtle flavour blends well with other flavours without getting lost completely. It may seem I’ve over done it here, soaking the friands with a ginger syrup as they are deliciously moist already (thanks to the almonds). But the syrup makes them simply melt in the mouth, and I mean melt.

White Chocolate & Ginger Cheesecake

When I first joined twitter (which was some time ago now) I ran a competition for a recipe using my favourite ingredient stem ginger. The prize was to have the recipe featured on my blog and lo and behold here it is! The winner was @softdumplings whose idea paired my ingredient with white chocolate in the form of a cheesecake. I had to make it twice before perfecting it as baked cheesecakes have a tendency to overcook when not surrounded by a water bath (do make sure to use hot water other the cheesecake will take longer to cook). I would love to say I’m now gonna sit back and have a slice of this but it’s already finished! Click here for the recipe
