Cookies and tarts are probably as far as my dough “tolerance” go (although every now and then it’s nice to have something that is “heavier” in the flour department). I’ll stay on a lighter side of dough for now. Topped with Ferrero Rochers, this week’s delightful dessert combines bittersweetness of chocolate with a zesty orange twist. Perfect with afternoon tea or morning coffee alike.
Cranberries are not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when one plans to bake a cheesecake. Surprisingly, together with white chocolate they make an unforgettable sweet-and-sour balance of tastes and textures that is…well..perfect!
There’s something truly Italian about this cake, probably the combination of marsala, ricotta and grated chocolate. Initially I was somewhat sceptical about prunes, but the end result is perfect in every possible sense. Enjoy!
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!
A while ago I made Cherry Ripe Chocolate Cheesecake – a wonderful chocolate cheesecake enriched with delightful Cherry Ripe Bars, an absolute tea-time hit. Now since I’ve been on a “Mud Cake” run for a few months (check out some amazing varieties here and here), I believe the time has come for a Cherry Ripe Mud Cake, a potential winner in this sweet marathon. Enjoy!
Chocolate, chocolate, more chocolate… There can not possibly be too much of a good thing, for sure. Moist and dense chocolate brownies are accompanied here by silky chocolate sauce, adding a sophisticated and somewhat elegant twist to this simple sweet delight.
Suitable for celebration of any memorable occasion (or simply to be enjoyed with a nice cup of tea), this spectacular cake beautifully brings out the best of three chocolates: the sweetness of the white, the richness of the milk and the light bitterness of the dark.
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.
Changing geographies again this week with a culinary trip to Germany. Well, sort of, but not exactly. Since I couldn’t decide whether to make a traditional Black Forest Cake or a chocolate cheesecake, I decided to ‘marry’ them instead and enjoy the best of both chocolate-based delights.
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!
