Nigella's coffee and walnut layer cake. Rose like a dream and stayed moist for days. I actually used the cake recipe to make about a dozen cappuccino cupcakes- just topped them with white chocolate frosting (lovely recipe pinned on my board) and sprinkled them with dark drinking chocolate. Heaven!
Christmas Rocky Road: It’s not that I felt my usual Rocky Road Crunch Bars needed any improvement (though fiddling with recipes is one of life’s pleasures) but I thought they would benefit from some seasonal adjustment. So, out go the Rich Tea biscuits and in come amaretti and – in the seasonal spirit – I’ve crammed in some Brazil nuts and glacé cherries (as red as Rudolph’s nose), along with snowy mini marshmallows.
