Brioche is an enriched sweet bread often eaten at special occasions in France. This is a recipe for a 1kg loaf but you can make these into small individual brioches if you like, and add any sweet spices such as nutmeg, cloves and even saffron.

Muffins are great for breakfast or even as a treat, and the scents of sweet spices fill the air whilst they are baking. Easy to make and perfect to get the kids helping in the kitchen.

Deliciously Rich Fruit Cake

Tags: , , , ,

Everyone needs a good tried and tested rich fruit cake recipe up their sleeve. Whether you ‘feed’ it with brandy, marsala or alcohol of your choice is upto you, but make sure you make it a few weeks before you plan on eating it. It tastes much better if you let the cake mature, and if you are going to ice it then leave it to dry out around 1 week before so the icing sticks!

Melting Creamy Camembert

Camembert tastes great when its been baked and the inside oozes out. Perfect on its own but even better when a few extra ingredients are added to liven up the flavour.

Coffee Nutty Pecan Cake

Having a slice of cake with a coffee is a real treat and almost a must in my home. This coffee and pecan cake covers both bases, and you can add a splash of Marsala or Tia Maria if you fancy making it boozy.

This recipe couldn’t be simpler. The delicate flavour of salmon gets a baste with sweet fennel, zesty orange and fiery ginger. Throw in a little soy and some earthy thyme and you’ve got yourself one delicious meal.
