Coffee & Walnut Cake

COFFEE & WALNUT CAKE This lovely, rich, traditional cake is my Partner’s favourite.  The combination of good coffee and hearty walnuts is a compelling combination for any afternoon tea or anytime sweet treat. You can make the cake with or without the topping (or you can use the topping as a filler in the middle

Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake

DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE This chocolate cake is rich and dark, moist and hearty.  The secret ingredient is black treacle and the topping of 100% black chocolate ganache is a must for real chocolate lovers.  Rich and decadent, you’ll be able to serve this to your guests whether on a keto/low-carb diet or not.  They’ll

Mango Coulis

MANGO COULIS My favourite fruit is Mango, particularly Thai mango.  There’s simply nothing nicer than mango sorbet, mango coulis, fresh ripe cold mango pieces from the fridge on a hot, summer’s day.  It’s difficult on a keto or low-carb diet to incorporate much fruit as most fruits (including mango) contain so much natural sugar.  However,

Lavender Shortbread

LAVENDER SHORTBREAD Having found the perfect recipe for Shortbread, I am now experimenting with different flavours.  I once went to a wedding in South Africa where the bride had used lavender as a theme.  Soft fabric purses were presented to each guest, filled with the most wonderful lavender shortbread.  So, the inspiration for this particular

Shortbread

SHORTBREAD I have tried so many recipes to try to find a way of making a keto version of shortbread that not only tastes like sweet, buttery, shortbread, but also has the crumbly dry texture of regular shortbread.  This is the best that I can find.  I’ve mixed three different recipes together to find what
