Rhubarb & Custard Cake

I bought some rhubarb at a recent horticultural show so set about finding a different recipe to use it in. I found what I wanted on the BBC Good Food site. We all know that rhubarb and custard are perfect partners but I’d never heard of rhubarb and custard cake! Of course, as is often […]

Definitely maybe a Clementine Cake

Yet another variation on Nigella’s Clementine Cake! I had a few little oranges left from a 2 bags for the price of 1 Tesco deal so thought I’d make this lovely cake again. They shall be referred to as little oranges as I have no idea whether I bought satsumas, clementines, mandarins, or, tangerines! It […]

Apple & Pear Puffs

I’m trying to get my sweet fix from more fruit than chocolate but it can get a little boring so I decided to make use of the Jus-Rol light puff pastry sheet that I had in the freezer. Clueless about how long to cook anything for I found this apple recipe and adapted it to […]
