Creamy desserts (custards, mousses, etc.)

Chocolate Chia Pudding with Orange Flavoured Prunes

It always helps me to tame the chocolate cravings without consuming any processed sugar. Surprisingly, even a small serving is quite satisfying. The pudding takes no time to make, it just needs a couple of hours in the refrigerator to… Continue reading →

Lemon and Basil Strawberry Trifle

This is truly a spring-celebrating dessert. Light lemon génoise cake is soaked in tangy, Limoncello-spiked syrup, layered with fragrant basil strawberry salad and white chocolate crème Chantilly. White chocolate doesn’t just add interest to the whole flavour palette, it also… Continue reading →

Chocolate and Mocha Chantilly Mini Trifles

These chocolate cubes at the bottom are actually Alice Medrich’s “Chocolate deception” cake that I failed to unmold and extracted in two pieces. I should have known better that this kind of cake wouldn’t be easy to separate from the… Continue reading →

Dulce de Leche Rice Pudding

The pudding of pure dulce de leche flavor. There are people who either love or can’t stand the rice puddings. But there’s a chance for the latter to be converted if they try this particular one (I happened to witness… Continue reading →

Chocolate Cranberry and Cream Cheese Mousse Trifle

This is not a traditional English trifle. There is no dense pound cake, crème anglaise, and whipped cream inside. My trifle is assembled from light chocolate génoise soaked in Grand Marnier syrup, freshly made cranberry sauce, chocolate pastry cream, and… Continue reading →

Eggnog Panna Cotta with Penny-Size Espresso Shortbread Kisses

I admit I had been skeptical about store-bought eggnog until I tried organic whole fat all-natural one. It was pretty good. And so I thought of a super-quick and easy dessert utilizing some leftovers. I topped the panna cotta with… Continue reading →

Coconut and Muscovado Sugar Panna Cotta with Tropical Fruit Compote

I’ll better start with some explanations. I haven’t abandoned my blogging, although it might recently seem like that. I am sort of on a maternity leave taking care of my new baby girl – a 10 week old Doberman puppy…. Continue reading →

Chocolate Rice Pudding with Caramel Crème Chantilly

This kind of dessert is my comfort food during sometimes seemingly endless rainy Vancouver days. It’s creamy, chocolaty, sweet and soothing.

Cinnamon Panna Cotta with Spicy Autumn Fruit Compote

The recipe for the cinnamon panna cotta is adapted from Camilla V. Saulsbury’s “Panna Cotta” book which was brought to my attention by a publisher. Despite my skepticism towards the unmolded panna cotta in general, I have to admit that… Continue reading →

Lemon Honey Panna Cotta with Lemon Fennel Puff Pastry Straws

Even the last scraps of home made puff pastry taste great and puff perfectly. Never ever dispose these precious leftovers, always put them to some use. The flavor of the real butter and the texture of the finished product is… Continue reading →

Mango and Blueberry Fool with Coconut Meringue

As easy as it gets – lightened by whipped cream fresh mango puree with blueberries and crushed coconut meringue folded in. Without taking into the account the meringue cookies (which are good on their own, not just as an addition… Continue reading →

Honey Cardamom Mousse with Mango Gelée and Pistachio Apricot Kernel Toasts

Desserts served in glasses (or any other vessels) are stress-free for entertaining hosts. All you have to do on the day you are having guests over is to transfer these glasses from the fridge onto the table. It is very… Continue reading →

Rhubarb/Strawberry Compote Yogurt and Homemade Granola Parfait

I often call it a breakfast. That means I have an excuse to have a dessert afterwards with my morning espresso.  Yes, I believe every meal should be followed by a sweet course. I prefer to bake rhubarb instead of… Continue reading →

Trompe L’oeil “Soft Boiled Egg”

This is the same lemon pudding I posted earlier, but presented differently. The illusion is very realistic due to the color and consistency of the pudding and a lemon curd “yolks”. For the toast, there’s an anise seed génoise-sort-of-cake, baked… Continue reading →

Lemon Pudding with Ginger Lemon Madeleines

When the weather is as hot as we’ve got here, cool and tangy dessert like this seems soothing and refreshing. I made the pudding late at night, after the summer heat subsided, and the idea of stirring a hot mixture… Continue reading →

Raspberry and Chocolate Clafouti

Son: “What’s for dessert, mum?” Mum: “Uh… fresh raspberries, perhaps? You see, your mum has been very busy reading your Harry Potter book left so hastily right in her view…” (and now this mum is worrying if a dreadful regressing… Continue reading →

White Russian Panna Cotta

This is a gelatinized version of my favorite drink. I drink it black when I’m on a diet and with cream when I don’t count calories (I don’t sip it everyday, don’t you think that :). I adjusted the proportion,… Continue reading →

Vanilla Cheesecake Mint White Chocolate Mousse and Strawberry Gelée Bites

This month’s Daring Bakers challenge, hosted by Jenny from JennyBakes, was Abbey’s Infamous Cheesecake. My sincere thank you to Jenny not just for hosting, but also for not limiting us with rules and restrictions, for providing with an opportunity to… Continue reading →
