Beetroot brownies

These beetroot brownies is the best of both worlds, a sweet treat which includes some nutritional value. The beetroot blends in perfectly with the dark chocolate and still tastes delicious. I love gooey brownies and the beetroot in these brownies really helps keep them moist. Serve with ice cream or […]

This week my posts will be focusing on sweet treats which incorporates more fruit/veg than the classic versions.  One of these sweet treats is this Lime pie which instead of a biscuit base has an alternative version which contains dates and walnuts. I prefer this version since it is less […]

Its that time of year when we are all munching on Mince pies nom nom….Although in these mince puffs I added a bit of rum and it just brings them to another level. It’s not too overpowering but just adds a depth to the flavouring. These puffs are a bit […]

Toffee apples

These toffee apples are so delicious, apple and toffee are a match made in heaven! I prefer to quarter these when serving rather than biting straight in but each to their own. Golden sugar can be swapped for the Brown sugar but the brown sugar gives a more intense flavour. […]
