Super Simple Old Fashioned Egg Custard Tart

This Super Simple Old Fashioned Egg Custard Tart is a dessert from my childhood. You used to be able to find slices of it in bakeries, on school menus and in restaurants. It has fallen from favour over the years. Being deemed old-fashioned and boring. But I still love it! There is something so lovely about its simplicity. A smooth, creamy custard with a hint of nutmeg in every bite. In this version, I have simplified the ingredients and taken a pinch of the richness out. Traditionally the custard is a rich mix of egg yolks and double cream,...

One thing I love is a beautiful fruit cake to enjoy with a cup of tea. It’s a wonderful way to cheer up any dreary Autumn afternoon. Soft sweet centre with a crispy topping and fruit in every bite.

Either way, this Lightly Spiced Sultana Pear Cake ticks all the boxes for a great Autumn bake.     Pear Cake.   One fruit I always feel gets overlooked all the time is the humble pear. I don’t know why?...

Seasonal Coloured Autumn Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies have been around forever and a day. Most home bakers have their own version of these tasty oatmeal peanut butter cookies. I don’t know why I have taken so long to share mine, probably because there are so many recipes already online. But I was inspired by these lovely autumn coloured smarties (like M&Ms) that I saw in the shops. So I thought, why not pop them into monster cookies and share them with you guys.   Monster cookies?   For those of you not in the know, monster cookies are basically a peanut...
