Blackberry and Ginger Eton Mess

A week after coming back from France it’s safe to say I’m still easing myself back in on the baking front by going for the dessert that probably requires the least amount of finesse possible: eton mess. But, being modest as per, it did taste pretty good, so I personally am not complaining.

Limoncello Crumble Cake

Since I’m jetting off to France soon, I thought I’d treat you all to a cheeky mid-week blog. But, since it’s also my Grandma’s birthday, I will keep it fairly brief as I have a meal to rush off and cook (don’t look too happy, I don’t ramble that much!).

Whether it was my raspberry and white chocolate cookie cake or my schiachiatta con uva a lot of my recipes have been a little less random than what happens to come to mind. As much as I do enjoy baking for this reason, it does add a little bit of extra pressure to get it right and this week was no exception. However, this week I was not cooking for a birthday, but instead in an attempt to impress one of my toughest critics: my grandma.
