Bramley Apple Curd

My grandma has a huge apple tree in her garden which produces a copious amount of gnarled but delicious cooking apples. Every time we visit her, she seems to produce another bag of apples and I really enjoy coming up with new ways of using them. My mum is a massive fan of lemon curd so […]

Lemon drizzle cake

A lemon drizzle cake is a classic for good reason. The sharp lemon syrup which soaks into the top of the cake acts as a wonderful contrast to the buttery richness of the sponge beneath. This one has a particularly punchy lemon syrup and a little added texture from a topping of lemon zest and […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
