Richard’s Black Forest chocolate fondants

It’s been about a month since I last baked for this blog. Everything slows down in times of COVID, it seems. The reason I chose this bake is because cherries are finally in season! I’ve been waiting to do this one justice until I could get delicious local cherries. Before I go into the details…

Marbled mocha cheesecake

If you’ve been keeping track like an avid fan (or a stalker), you’ll know that in my last round of one-recipe-per-category, I skipped puddings and desserts. So I needed to double-up. The last one I made was shared with two people, but I’ve had my eye on this cheesecake recipe for a while. Especially after…

Mary’s Neapolitan baked Alaska

‘Twas the weekend and I was visiting my mom’s and thought, This is the perfect opportunity to do a pudding. Not a North American pudding. A British pudding. A dessert. As previously discussed, puddings and desserts are trickier to bring to work so I decided to leave this section to smaller groups of friends and…

Little orange soufflé puds

I swear I used to be good at math. I may have said this before, but it’s true. I was, like, really good, you guys. If I had more discipline, I may have even gone into a STEM field, but alas, I’m lazy and really good at BSing my way through papers, so I went…

Hot white chocolate sponge puddings

Another bake? So soon? And with so little convincing? Yes’m. ‘Twas a rainy, autumnal Sunday just one day ago when I felt my heart call out for soup and something chocolatey. I went to my mother’s house and informed her that I would be making a ginger, carrot, apple and butternut squash soup as well…

Apricot custard tart

I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a little while. It seemed like one that I should try to do in the summer, and even though it’s September, I thought it still counted as summer. That is until I went shopping for apricots and found zero. Unfortunately my zero apricot result was after purchasing…

Blueberry and lemon bread pudding

Bread pudding. Is there anything more British? Probably, yeah. But it’s still quite British and, to someone who’s never had it before, quite confusing. You take stale bread and soak it in an eggy milky mixture and then cook it? Actually, sorry, I just described French toast. Bread pudding—is there anything more French? Now, in…

Chocolate volcanoes

Another bake? Already?! Yes, dear readers. I’m on a bit of a baking roll (except I’m not making rolls) since I just baked Friday and it’s only two days past and I’m doing another bake and this week I know I’ll be doing at least two more. Maybe it’s like how people nest to prepare…
