Oreo Cookies and Cheesecake. And a bit of cream. And a bit of chocolate. A match made in heaven. A universal perfection. A soothing indulgence. Enough talking, me thinks. Tea time!
Another cheesecake this week! I personally favour baked (over chilled) cheesecakes in general, but this one is rather an exception. Simple, light, wonderful and refreshing, with a divine raspberry twist. Just perfect on a hot summer day.
Switching culinary geographies by going to England with this week’s rich and flavourful dessert. A double chocolate twist raises this delectable treat to a new height of gustatory delight. Simply delish!
Served once a year during Russian Orthodox Easter, Paskha is a traditional speciality made of cottage cheese, butter, sugar and sour cream, and molded into the form of a truncated pyramid. Enjoy a lighter cream cheese version of it, molded in individual mini-forms.
Традиционно Пасха делается в форме усеченной пирамиды из творога, масла, сахара и сметаны. Ввиду приближающегося Пасхального Воскресения, я предлагаю более “легкий” вариант (из мягкого крем-сыра и сметаны) в индивидуальном исполнении.
Another long-term blog break, but I’m back with something extremely special and absolutely superb. These Cardamom Orange Chocolate Mousse Cakes turned out to be a great success with my recent visitors. Which is not surprising given how well silky sweetness of chocolate mousse marries with zestiness of oranges and the extra mild twist that cardamom adds. Enjoy!
Chocolate lovers, this one is for you. Enjoy an unbeatable upgrade of all-time favourite dessert – a zesty orange twist to a silky-smooth rich chocolate mousse.
Well whad’ya know…surprise-surprise, it’s another cheesecake week. Strawberry is in season now, so time to make a good use of it. I generally prefer the taste of a baked cheesecake over a chilled one (and those who feel the same can also try out this recipe of White Choc mini-Cheesecakes), but this is somewhat another exception. Rich, flavourful, yet light and silky-tender with great berry-boost. Simply wonderful.
Mango and five spice make a brilliant partnership here, and the flavours are zinged up by lime and mellowed by a brûléed topping. You can replace mangoes with peaches or nectarines if desired for another fabulous variation.
This classic dessert is topped with a cloud of raspberry custard that contrasts beautifully with the rich dark chocolate layer.
I have to confess – I cheated a little. I first published this recipe earlier in the year, but not in a step-by-step format. I finally got around to revisit it, just in time for the raspberry season.
Caramel and vanilla custard cream are perfect partners in this classic dessert. You’ll need minimum ingredients and just basic equipment to bring this silky delight with caramelised crust to life. Not for long, I would assume, as those treasures of taste are extremely hard to resist.
