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 […]

Sour Cherry Pie

It’s been a while since I posted a sweet recipe. I try to refrain from making cakes and sweet treats unless we have company, otherwise there are far too many leftovers lurking around tempting me. A few weeks ago I needed to make a dessert to take to a family dinner and I was craving […]

Banana Cake with Caramel Icing

We’ve all had banana cake and most of us have had a go at making it too. Whilst it’s delicious and moist it does’t really hold too many surprises, and as far as cakes go it’s normally relegated to being a mid morning or afternoon snack. But this version turns up the volume and transforms […]
