1) Chocolate Cherry Fruitcake
An extravagance of tart Italian candied wild cherries, the best quality chocolate chips, and walnuts, and a finish of kirsch glaze, make this a very modern fruitcake.
2) Spiced Ginger Cake
A rather generous amount of fresh young ginger, along with judicious spicing, give this moist cake its warmth and special depth of flavor.
3) Maple Pecan & Chocolate Tart
Maple syrup adds a fantastic flavour to this special occasion tart while the bitterness of cocoa helps cut the richness.
4) Sticky Fig Puddings with Toffee sauce
A figgy spin on the beloved sticky toffee pudding classic, these moist individual puddings are soused with a sticky toffee sauce then warmed till irresistibly bubbling and gooey.
