Hot Cross BunsBy danieldiverHot cross buns may be traditional at Easter though I certainly don't limit the eating of hot cross buns to just Easter. What I love about this recipe is that it's an all inclusive recipe in that half the buns are traditional sultana studded glazed buns and the other half are for those who aren't fond of the fruit studded bun instead they are studded with chocolate chips in a excess quantity of course. You may if you prefer just use all sultanas or all chocolate chips.
No – Knead BreadBy danieldiverThis is a new recipe to me I have seen a lot of no-knead breads recently on Instagram and having done a little research it seemed all these no-knead breads take so long some need to sit for up to twenty hours. I began to think if I used a slightly warmer than usual water could I cut down the proving time and the answer was resounding Yes! The bread you get is delicious really aerated throughout with a sourdough/ciabatta style crust and delicious chew. It gets this wonderful crust thanks to the cooking process, It’s cooked in a casserole pan with a lid on for most of the cooking which lets the bread steam and develop that great crust then it comes off for the last fifteen minutes to colour and give it crustiness. I knew when making this bread that I wanted to make this rustic bread with plain flour making it more affordable and easier to keep the ingredients required for making it available.
Nutella CookiesBy danieldiverMy Nutella cookies are ideal for baking with kids. They require very few ingredients. Nutella is the key ingredient here meaning you can get away with not having to use butter and sugar and having to cream them together. They are delicious plain or with a little melted chocolate on top and sprinkled with hundreds and thousands.
Panettone PuddingBy danieldiverA super easy bread pudding that uses that classic Italian Sweet bread Panettone as it base. Making for a sweet and comforting pudding that will scent your home with warm Christmas aroma as it bakes. You can use pandoro instead of panettone and add 100g chocolate chip as well.
Rapid Retro CheesecakeBy danieldiverA rapid cheesecake that is made in a martini glass or any other glass of your choice meaning it's good to go almost instantly. This version does have a quick soft set jelly that is uber delicious, although if like me this becomes a midnight sweet treat I often use jam with a little lemon juice just to loosen it and make it a little more spreadable.
Raspberry Ripple & White Chocolate MousseBy danieldiverAlthough, this may be the simplest of dessert to make it is an impressive and delicious one also. The white chocolate mousse is very rich but that crimson raspberry ripple has just enough tartness to cut through the richness of it all making for a dream combination. I make these in goblets, wine glasses etc. as they look most impressive when that ripple of raspberry can be seen streaky through the pale mousse. You can serve it in whatever vessel you though.
Rocky Road Ice Cream CakeBy danieldiverCreamy delicious ice cream cake studded with lots of good things. This recipe is very easy and hardly involves any cooking. The ice cream cakes base relies on a no-churn ice cream meaning it is very simple no custard making or fancy equipment is needed, just a bowl and a wooden spoon.
Ruby & Gold Rocky RoadBy danieldiverMy festive ruby and gold rocky road is very easy to make and requires next to no cooking. Studded with crunchy biscuits, honeycomb, marshmallows, and the shiny ruby redness of cherries it makes the ideal treat for this time of year for when guest drop by or as a solo treat for yourself with a cup of tea. It's a very versatile recipe that lends itself well to almost any sweet ingredient you wish to add.
Salted Chocolate TartBy danieldiverA chocolate lovers dream: this luscious chocolate tart is rich, silky sophisticated & elegant. Easy to make thanks to a few key shortcut ingredients.
Slow Cooker Sticky Toffee PuddingBy danieldiverThis sticky date pudding is cooked in quite a radical way. It does require a leap of faith but you rewarded with a tender sponge, much like a steamed sponge and a molasses rich sauce with very little work.
Spiced Guinness CupcakesBy danieldiverThese cupcakes are the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. They have a subtle spice both from the Guinness and with a little help from gingerbread spices also with a hint of chocolate. Making a deep dark and moist cupcake topped with a sweet topping that balances the spices perfectly.
Strawberry TartBy danieldiverThis is a super easy no-fuss strawberry tart. It doesn't require any baking and no pastry. Instead, it has a simple biscuit base with a luscious lemon centre and topped with glossy glazed strawberries.
