Lemon and Lime Curd

This fresh lemon and lime curd is the perfect antidote to a grey and damp day. It’s yellow hue and sharp tang from the zest and juice of lemons and limes conjures up a little bit of sunshine. Making curd is incredibly simple and homemade lemon and lime curd is lovely spread over a piece […]

Pear, walnut and stem ginger crumble

After such a virtuous first post of 2013, my second of the year is a comforting crumble, which is a leap back to the indulgence of the festive season, brought about by this Drunken Plum Frangipane Tart, which was thelittleloaf’s shamelessly decadent start to the year.

I’m happy to say that this certainly isn’t a recent […]

Crumble is one of my absolute favourite puddings and it always brings back memories of Sunday lunches at my grandparents’ house. Grandma’s crumble became slightly infamous when she served it for the first meal my dad had at my grandparent’s house. Granny […]

Lemon Cheesecake

Serves 6 to 8 Lemon cheesecake has become my trademark pudding. I’ve never been keen on overly rich or overly sweet puddings so I love the sharp fresh flavours of a fruit cheesecake, particularly one flavoured with citrus. This lemon cheesecake can be made in advance and seems to have universal appeal but if you like, you […]
