    Here’s an unusual flourless cake that makes a delightful dessert. Italian risotto rice is cooked slowly in milk until tender and creamy, then mixed with eggs, nuts, lemon and rum, and baked. It’s served with a red fruit salad.

    This is a deliciously different cheesecake recipe. Just before serving, grate some dark chocolate on the top for a more professional look.

    This gluten-free cake takes a little effort, but the results are really worth it. It's deliciously rich and addictive. The cake is flavoured with chestnuts, almonds, chocolate and brandy. What else could you want? It's perfect for special occasions, such as Christmas.

    This ricotta cheesecake is similar in style to other cheesecakes, but it is much lighter. Hope you enjoy!
