No street party spread would be complete this weekend without some Jubilee cupcakes. These lemon cupcakes are so light, fluffy and tasty – decorated with a generous swirl of patriotic red, white and blue buttercream, to match the sponge inside.
Almond frangipane is a classic French preparation which results in a rich almond filling, that can be made in moments. It provides a delicious base for raw or poached fruit and is spread over uncooked pastry to make simple tarts.
This is a cake recipe with a difference, it doesn’t use any flour (making it gluten free), the secret lies in the ground almonds and polenta soaked in butter and the fresh lemon and orange juice add a perfect tangy balance to the buttery richness.
Apples, sugar, butter and puff pastry are all you need for this delicate, delicious apple tart (or – tarte tatin – as it is traditionally known) is a French dessert great for holiday guests and is best served warm, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
This Fudge recipe is one of my all time favourites, it’s simple to make and you only need 4 ingredients to put it together. You can make this fudge up to a week in advance and it is the perfect homemade gift for family and friends.
