Apple Cinnamon and Pecan Cake


A firm family favourite. The cake matures over time in the tin, with the apples leaching their delicious caramel notes into the cake.

Carrot Cake with Lime Frosting


A moist, light, spicy and slightly caramely carrot cake with a soft tangy frosting. The pecans and lime zest really “pop” the flavour.

This was made as a special Birthday request!

Individual Pecan Pies


Once in a while it is nice to eat something sweet and gooey.

I do not have much of a sweet tooth, and despite all the cakes and biscuits that come out of the kitchen, it is uncommon for me to partake.

Pecan pie, and my Mother’s Sachertorte (
must get that recipe from her) are the rare exceptions that make me want to indulge.

This is a simple recipe - the shortcrust takes a couple of minutes to make maximum in the food processor. It tastes significantly better than the shop bought equivalent. It is also very easy to work with easily being able to achieve a thin and short pastry.

These were so good, I accidentally ate the last one between the hours of 2am and 6am. (
I really should eat more after a mega gym sessions!)
