COCONUT MOUSSE WITH STRAWBERRY COULIS

I confess I’ve never made anything with Coconut Milk Powder and I even wondered if was something you could still buy. Obviously I’ve now realized that you can, so it might well be worth trying out this very summery dessert – when the weather warms up enough, that is…..

BERRY ICE-CREAM CHEESECAKE

I thought as it’s the last day of winter today it might be time for a summery dessert, although I may be being a little optimistic as it’s not exactly warm outside yet…. But the idea of some warmer weather and luscious cold desserts was just too hard to resist.

STEAMED GINGER PUDDING

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr it’s cold outside and we’re back in lockdown again, so what better time to try out this Steamed Ginger Pudding. Steamed puddings were always a favourite winter dessert that Mum made for the family.

Lockdown has ended, but winter’s only just beginning. Hopefully this hearty, old fashioned pudding will help in the cold days ahead.

APRICOT SOUFFLE

I always like to do as much pre-cooking as I can before the guests arrive, so with this recipe I’d have all the elements done and just add the beaten egg whites to the coconut mixture and put them in the oven when we were almost ready for dessert.

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE
