Blueberry Crostata – An Easy Free Form Blueberry Pie

I made this crostata, which is really just a free form pie, a few months ago during a small window in summer when berry prices here in Sydney were relatively inexpensive. Right now of course, being the depths of winter, it’s not going to be an ideal time to cook this and unfortunately frozen blueberries […]

Cardamom, Rose Water & Pistachio Cake

The title of this cake includes three of my favourite ingredients so I knew it was going to be right up my alley, and I was right. This cake is just a lovely combination of flavours – warmth and earthiness from the cardamom, beautiful aroma from the rose water and wonderful nuttiness and moistness from […]

Cinnamon Roll Cake

I’ve called this a cake but it’s probably more accurate to describe it as one giant cinnamon roll. There’s something very addictive about cinnamon rolls – yeasty sweet dough, buttery cinnamon filling and that vanilla frosting that seeps into all those nooks and crannies.

Roasted Plum & Yogurt Pavlova – Yep, No Cream!

I’m not pretending by any means that this Pavlova is healthy, it does after all contain one cup of sugar but it would be a lot more calorific if it was doused in the usual way with lots of whipped cream. Instead this version uses thick Greek yogurt which gives the Pavlova a lovely tang. […]
