Almonds are my favourite! They have this amazing nuttiness and aroma about them that make them suitable across cuisines and courses. You can use almonds in salads, in chicken dishes, have them as is, salt them, roast them etc etc. But my favourite way – almonds in dessert! Candied, pulsed, as garnish, in cookies – all such great ways to incorporate this healthy, delicious ingredient!
This cake recipe is a super easy way to bring almond to desserts. It is a simple sponge, with some almonds thrown in. Pretty much 🙂
Do you love lemon in desserts? Please say you do 🙂 Lemon, to me, is one of the best flavours for a dessert. It is the perfect ingredient to add that delicious balance to a dessert so it tastes sweet but tangy, rich but fruity all at the same time. Like magic 🙂
After years of just eating lemon tarts, I discovered lemon loaves. Who knew it was so simple to bake with lemon? This lemon loaf is something I bake a lot and it is always a massive crowd favourite! Always.
