Lemon and Ginger Bakewell Tart

Historically made with raspberry jam and slivered almonds, and occasionally stewed fruit like apples – Here I’ve spiced it up with lemon curd and ginger for a real zing and lovely tartness. A nice tart tart – a bit like me really!

English Chocolate & Bread Pudding Slice

In the winter this was a consolation prize when standing at a cold,wet bus stop waiting to get home from school… serve it in large slabs, with oodles of custard or a nice mug of ‘Rosie-Lee’ (tea)…

Plum & Chocolate Tart

Plums are in season, chocolate never goes out of season, a match made in heaven, thanks to Sandra Grant from Tahakopa who suggested these ingredients, including cream cheese and sugar which inspired this delicious tart as part of my recent Favourite Things birthday giveaway.   A great way to rediscover fruit! N-Joy. X

Anytime Jamaican Lemon & Ginger Loaf

There is nothing more delicious then a fresh slice of this loaf with a wedge of beautiful Cheddar or a spoonful of warm Crème Anglaise.  Traditionally, my family used to have a very basic version of it at Easter, but I suppose there is no reason to restrict yourself to special occasions.  The warm, spicy cinnamon and nutmeg aroma filling the house, reminds me of my childhood, back home in London.
