Choux Pastry Doughnuts with Pink White Chocolate Glaze

And sprinkles, of course! These doughnuts are light and airy Choux pastry with sweet white chocolate glaze in pink and¬†colourful¬†sugar sprinkles. They are fun treats and much lighter than traditional yeast doughnuts, and surely they aren’t fried but oven baked! The light Choux pastry itself has a very mild taste and topping is what gives this treat it’s¬†sweetness. Sure¬†you could cut the rings open and […]

Sugar Free No Bake Blueberry-Apple Cheesecake

Sugar Free Coconut Strawberry Fritters

If you never had a deep fried strawberry before, this may sound like a strange dessert but the chances are you’ll come to love serving them in your summer parties and gatherings. The strawberries are coated in a light airy batter and deep fried until golden. This makes the strawberries juicier and when eaten shortly after frying the coating stays crunchy. Normally sweet fritters are […]

Strawberry Cream Cake

Keep Calm & Bake a Cake…¬†Layers of whipped cream and fresh strawberries over vanilla and vanilla & strawberry cake. Generally I’d say this is a summer cake,¬†but whenever you get strawberries at their best is a good¬†time to make this cake. You could cover it in icing but I really¬†like the “naked” look.
