Not a traditional coffee flavoured tiramisu, this John West recipe is filled with boysenberries and mascarpone, but it’s still rich, creamy and yummy.
You can make this recipe as six self-saucing puddings or one large family size pudding. Tinned cherries are used and that makes it an all-year round pudding, although I think eating it hot and with a large dollop of cream screams ‘winter’ to me.
There’s two things I like about this recipe. Firstly, the combination of apples and raspberries together in the filling – I like the sweetness of the apples and the tartness of the raspberries. And, secondly the addition of rice bran in the crumble mix. I find some crumbles a bit dull, but the mix of rice bran, rolled oats and crushed nuts makes this one tasty.
I know going into winter is hardly the right time to post an ice-cream recipe, but for some people it doesn’t matter how cold it is it’s never too cold for a bowl of ice-cream. This one has the added bonus of crunch peanut butter and chocolate, so who cares if it’s cold outside turn the heating up and enjoy it……………
As the autumn air starts to turn cooler and we’re in self isolation at home, what better way to warm and cheer ourselves up than a hot banana pudding – even if it means we have to join weight watchers when we finally emerge……….. Stay well everyone.
I suspect it’s the peppermint crisps, the crunchie bars or whatever chocolate treat you feel like adding that will be the main appeal of this ice cream for the kids. Even so it’s something they can make themselves, although I doubt all 3 bars will make it into the mix.
When this cheesecake slice with cinnamon, orange and sultana filling was published in the Woman’s Day it was described as ‘mouth-watering’ and they said that it would ‘really impress your family and friends’. It looks fairly easy to make and should transport well, so they might be right and it would just thing to take when you’re asked to ‘bring something sweet’ to a gathering.
A traditional fruit crumble pudding is baked and that gives it a crisp top, but this Plum Crumble is a bit different. After cooking the plums you toast the oats and nuts and serve them on top of the plums with the apple and honey sauce poured over.
Another dessert recipe for banana lovers. I don’t think you can go wrong with this cream cheese, banana and filo pastry combination, especially when dusted with icing sugar………yumm.
Chocolate Ripple cakes were a very popular dessert in the 70s and 80s. This recipe is similar, sweet biscuits layered with cream, although in this case you dip the biscuits in coffee to add some flavour to the plainer biscuits. Both are a great ‘make the day before’ desserts.
