Chocolate Caramel Layered Ombre Cake

I am starting to notice a theme in my desserts. The dominant flavours are the chocolate and caramel combination. I knew I wanted to make an Ombre Cake using these flavours. What is ombre? It the effect you get when you create a graduated colour change from light to dark. You often see the effect in women’s hairstyles, they start dark at the root and gradually fade out to a lighter colour. I mentally played with a few Ombre recipe ideas, but I settled on making an Ombre Cake. Not content with ombre just as a colour sequence I started...

Sweet spices and chocolate in the form of a White Chocolate Chai Creme Brulee. This recipe is compliments of Jimmy Seervai from Masterchef. He has graciously given me the recipe so I hope I have done it justice. I have adjusted the recipe slightly because I have a sweet tooth and my husband loves white chocolate. White Chocolate Chai Creme Brulee Ingredients: 600ml thickened cream 5 cardamon pods 1 star-anise pod...

Melt & Mix Chocolate Crunch Slice

As with all of my favourite recipes, there is a story which goes along with this one. I developed a serious dependency on this Chocolate Crunch Slice whilst I was pregnant. Some days I would consume two pieces per day! Once you have sampled the slice you will understand how bad this admission really is. It is delicious but so rich!  A normal person would struggle to eat even one piece. A few years later I chanced upon the recipe. I have made a few modifications over the years but it remains a firm favourite. Although, now I tend to...
