Rachel Khoo’s Roasted Rhubarb And Almond Pudding


While researching for today’s post, I realised that I really haven’t mentioned rhubarb all that much. Though not actually a true fruit, most of the time that is how we treat it and use it as such.

Basically cake with more chocolate than you can shake a rather large stick at! Martha is never one to skimp on the niceties such as sugar, butter and of course ample amounts of chocolate. The […]

Baking week: Bread and butter pudding for those chilly evenings


The whether is changing and the evenings are getting cooler. So what better way to warm yourself up than with a lovely bread and butter pudding! While the bread he uses appears to be from a sliced pack, I am sure you could use alternatives such as gluten free or whole meal. Choice is yours so experiment […]
