Chocolate Strawberry Pudding Cake

Pudding cake is one of those classic, homey desserts that I’ve always heard about but never tried for myself. I don’t know why it took me so long, because as a lover of everything sticky-gooey-chocolatey, it’s basically all of my favorite things in one messy, ugly, so-wrong-it’s-right package. Pudding cake is kind of a magical…

Raspberry Kumquat Sugar Cookie Cake

This cake owes its existence to the fact that I’m completely superficial. When I was planning out the Flourless Chocolate Cake I posted a few days ago, I decided I wanted to add some orange flavor to the chocolate, and I had to have some sort of citrus accompaniment to tie everything together. What can…

Chocolate-Raspberry Tarts

Happy Monday, friends. I currently have a to-do list three miles long, an unedited book manuscript positively glaring at me from my dining room table, and the overwhelming desire to burrow under my covers and go back to sleep for the next six hours. And did I mention I haven’t even had time to watch…

Passion Fruit-Raspberry Pound Cake

This Passion Fruit-Raspberry swirl bread was the happiest of accidents. I’ve been doing some recipe testing for the book (yes, still, sigh, whimper) and I ended up with a cup of leftover passion fruit pulp, and about a quarter-cup of raspberry puree. After discovering the hard way that passion fruit pulp really, really does not…

This is a Fine Eton Mess We’re In

Hey, remember when I made that passion fruit curd? I posted about it, like, two days ago. Here’s a refresher: Nom nom nom Well, it turns out that passion fruit curd isn’t just good for layering in tiny glasses and topping with whipped cream. It’s also good for layering in GIANT glasses and topping with…

Strawberry Hand Pies

There are some compelling reasons not to make these strawberry hand pies. For one thing, it’s November. Unless you live in summery Australia, it’s getting harder and harder to find good fresh strawberries these days. (And if you do live in Australia, you might be too busy riding kangaroos to make a silly hand pie…

TWD: When Is A Scone Not A Scone?

Joining “Why Is A Raven Like A Writing Desk?” in the annals of head-scratching riddles, I present you with this week’s installment: “When Is A Scone Not A Scone?” How about…when you give the scone some friends? Like whipped cream, and macerated berries, and, yes, let’s throw in some pretty flowered plates. Because a good…

Last-Minute Berry Trifle

Happy Fourth of July! I went for a run this morning in the mountains near my house and spent the time thinking about how blessed I feel to live in such a beautiful land. Even when the trail is full of annoying mountain bikers. Even when I kept slipping off the rocks and getting soaked…
