Eton Mess is a combination of strawberries, meringue and cream and is usually served in a glass. These cupcakes are a twist on that – speckled with chopped strawberries, stuffed with strawberry jam and sprinkled with Dr. Oetker Eton Mess sprinkles.
Espresso and dark chocolate are two of the great things in my life. These brownies are have a malteser base with a chewy middle and each one has a chocolate mocha bean stuffed inside. Makes 20 brownie squares.
I emailed Dr. Oetker a few weeks back saying how awesome their range of sprinkles are. I’ve used them for a few recipes so far and they turn a fancy muffin or cupcake into a top quality, could sell for decent money cupcake.
So far I’ve tried:
- Popping Candy Sprinkles in Bonfire Muffins
- Banoffee sprinkles in Banoffee Cheesecake
- Lemon meringue sprinkles in Lemon Drizzle Loaves
Today I got some more goodies from Dr. Oetker – golden and silver pearls which I’ve never never used and some giant chocolate stars. I think all of these would go in some kind of Christmas cupcake pretty well.
Apples, cheesecake and streusel are a welcome compliment to pumpkins which seem to fill the shelves at this time of year. This is an overnight recipe because the cheesecake filling needs to set. Makes an 8″ square pan which can be sliced into bars.
This was going to be a peach pie, until I found a stack of blackberries we picked last month. A layer of blackberries sandwiched between two layers of sliced apples with a lattice top. Sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and served with vanilla custard.
The combination of brown sugars and overnight refrigeration makes these really chewy and very soft. They stay soft for around a week in an airtight container.
These cupcakes are soft and moist, like the blueberry muffins from Tesco, only homemade… and with peaches. I used half a 240g can of sliced peaches for the cakes and the rest of the can for the frosting.
Pretzels, peanut butter and chocolate rolled into one amazing pie. Serves 6.
A twist on regular oatmeal cookies due to the pumpkin. These are a good way to use up leftover pumpkin puree from other recipes. Makes 15 cookies.
Mini loaves filled with poppy seeds and topped with lemon frosting and lemon meringue sprinkles. Makes 3 mini loaves (and one cupcake). I picked up the sprinkles from Tesco, but you can get them from most supermarkets.
