Recipe for classic fig rolls (aka fig newtons), but made with wholemeal spelt flour. The fig paste is lightly spiced and gently sweetened and the pastry casing is delicious in its own right with subtle notes of lemon. These biscuits are easier to make than you might think.
This spinach cake flavoured with lemon is a super simple version of le gâteau vert or green cake and it tastes delicious. The batter is made with spinach puree and the icing is coloured with spinach too. It’s filled with lemon ricotta and topped with pistachios. Perfect for afternoon tea or a summer garden party.
A simple but super tasty apple pie made with delicious flakey, buttery wholemeal spelt pastry. Granny’s apple pie doesn’t have to be made with a food processor, but as a bonus, there’s a review of one in this post.
An enriched bread dough flavoured with three different chocolates and three spices. The triple chocolate bread loaf is then plaited and shaped to form a twisty round loaf.
Despite their name, Viennese whirls are a classic British biscuit. These chocolate Viennese whirls are light, short and buttery. They’re filled with vanilla buttercream and blackcurrant jam and they’re not as difficult to make as you might think. They’re just the thing for posh tea parties but also make a lovely Christmas gift.
An indulgent but delicious cake featuring chocolate and cherries with a light chilli kick to it. Despite the cream filling and topping, this Black Forest gâteau is a light, flavoursome, not too sweet and delightfully squidgy bake. It makes an excellent dessert as well as a party showpiece. It has the added bonus of being gluten free.
