Treat mum to a well-deserved break and a lot of pampering with Mother's Day recipes for breakfast in bed, afternoon tea, an extra special lunch or dinner, and a gorgeous cake or pud for the perfect ending to her day.
This stunning pavlova is surprisingly easy to make, and though you can decorate however you wish, try the combination of fresh berries and rose petals for something that is as pretty as it is delicious!
This recipe was passed down to me from my mum. It produces a rich, chocolaty cheesecake perfect for all cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike! Taste a little to ensure that the right amount of chocolate-ness has been reached. If you like cheesecakes a little more chocolaty then you may need to add a little more cocoa powder/water mix to taste.
Perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can't have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the cake tin using cocoa powder so it won't leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten free. You can make an icing for the top or pour over melted chocolate.
It's fudgy, chewy and delicious! I was looking for the ultimate brownies and have tried many recipes. I've also tried brownies bought from the shop. Neither really satisfied me. I wanted a brownie that is chewy, not crumbly. After trying many different recipes and techniques, I finally came up with one. Try it! If you are diabetic, there are sugar-free chocolates available at some supermarkets and you may use Isomalt as substitute for sugar but in very small amounts.
This is an excellent recipe for mini cheesecakes. Leave them plain or top them with fruit, compote or fruit glaze. Perfect for dinner parties and picnics.
