Fancy a slice of Raspberry Ripple Cake filled with raspberry ripple cheesecake filling?
Lets talk margarine and spreads – are you in the butter camp or do you swear by a spread or margarine?
Hands up, I’m not a huge fan of the latter. Depending on the brand I can taste it in baking.
You know what everyone loves? Parfait! Seeing as hidden hearts are all over the place at the moment I thought I’d hide them in this lovely dessert too.
(And yes, I know its not baking but it is larking around in the kitchen so that’s good enough for me!)
Real Jammy Dodgers – with the chewy raspberry caramel filling. Yes I know you can just sandwich them with jam but that’s not quite the same is it? Fill these with raspberry caramel and you’ll be in Jammy Dodger heaven!
110g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
340g plain flour
Raspberry Caramel (recipe here)
300g caster sugar
approx 75ml double cream
Start off with the raspberries – Fresh ones I’ve found will give you more puree and the reddest colour caramel but frozen ones aren’t bad either if that’s all you have.
To celebrate baking with Lurpak I’m doing a spot of Brownie Baking
Black Forest Berry Brownies – care to join me??
These are my Nanna’s favourite and I often make her some up and trip round with them – she slices it up and then bobs it in the freezer.

Biscuit, marshmallow and meringue – all in one go! These sweet treat kebabs are perfect wedding treats with brilliant wow factor – ideal for dipping in a chocolate fountain. This idea came from a Martha Stewart project and of course has the Pink Whisk twist with Raspberry Sherbet Marshmallows.
