Coffee, Salted Caramel and Macadamia Ice Cream

Coffee, Salted Caramel and Macadamia Ice Cream | Butter Baking

I haven’t failed to notice that I’ve been sharing a lot of cake and tart and cake recipes lately, so today I’ve got something a little different for you – ice cream! I’m super sad to report that I think our summer/warm weather is officially over. It’s time for me to stop living in denial, ditch my ballet flats and face the fact that it is definitely boot weather already. Continue Reading →

Chocolate Persian Love Cake (GF)

Chocolate persian love cake

Persian Love Cake has been on my “to bake” list for a while now. If you haven’t made a Persian Love Cake before, you start by crumbling most of the ingredients together and pressing half of them into a cake tin as the base. Then you add eggs and yogurt to the rest of the crumble and that makes your cake batter that you pour on top of the base. Continue Reading →

Healthy Apple and Almond Cake (GF)

healthy apple cake

I love me and apple cake, an apple pie, an apple tart, or an apple pastry. Apple baking is the best kind of baking. It is delicious baking, it is cinnamon-scented, house-warming baking, it’s cosy, nostalgic, autumn baking. So when I see an apple recipe, I tend to jump on it. What particularly appealed to me about this recipe is that fact that it is healthy! And gluten free, and dairy Continue Reading →

Fudgy Chocolate Mousse Gateau

Fudgy Chocolate Mousse Cake | Butter Baking

As much as I enjoy making and frosting traditional layer cakes, they’re not really something I’m into eating. This, however, well this I am into eating. It’s two layers of flourless chocolate fudge cake alternated with luscious chocolate mousse. The whole thing is assembled inside a cake ring so you can see the layers from the outside. Then it’s topped with rich milk chocolate ganache, raspberries and other delicious bits. Man, Continue Reading →

Coconut, Raspberry and Mango Panna Cotta Tart

Panna cotta tart

It is autumn here already. Where does the time go?! Although the cooler season has officially begun, the sunshine, the plethora of fruit and the warm days that summer bring are still lingering. Which means I have no choice but to make the most of the last of the summer bounty by baking with it! And what better way to celebrate summer fruit than to throw it all on top of a Continue Reading →

Flourless Mandarin, Almond and Blueberry Cake

Flourless Mandarin, Almond and Blueberry Cake | Butter Baking

You may remember this flourless orange, almond and mascarpone layer cake I shared with you a few weeks ago? Well, this is the lazy girl’s version of that cake. I love this cake made with mandarins (oranges are great too, you can choose your favourite fruit!) and happened to have some puree hanging around in the freezer from a cake order I filled. So I defrosted it, whisked all the Continue Reading →

Coffee, Chocolate and Hazelnut Gateau

When I meet people, and I tell them I’m a pastry chef, more often that not, people’s reactions are always, always, “That’s so cool! That must be so much fun!” (then 99 per cent of the time they go on to ask me what my favourite thing to bake is, but that’s another story for another day). And it is fun. Apart from the long hours, the super early starts Continue Reading →
