Sweet And Sour Satsuma and kiwi Pie...

Over on Tots 100 website they have teamed up with Clover and are running a fantastic competition to win £500 in supermarket vouchers. How amazing would this prize be!?! My 2 oldest sons will be home from Uni then and it would be unbelievable. Just before Christmas too. You can read all about the competition and enter it yourself here: Win with Tots 100 and Clover.

Today I am sharing my #NothingArtificial recipe with you and this is my entry into the competition. I have gone for a sweet treat. Most packaged up cakes you buy in the supermarket has something artificial in them to keep them fresh for longer. It amazes me how you can sometimes pick a box of muffins up and they have a sell buy date of 3 months on them. How fresh are these? Also brought a flapjack that had a years best before date of a year. Home made cakes and treats are much better for you.

Over the weekend I made this amazingly yummy Sweet And Sour Satsuma and kiwi Pie. The sweet is in the biscuit base and dark caramel filling and the sour is in the kiwi and lemon juice, they work great all together! Good thing about this recipe is you make it in 3 different stages as you need to wait for the base to set and caramel to cool before adding the cream. So if your short on time, you can make it throughout the day.

Sticky Brown Sugar Pavlova with Spiced Clementines and Pecan Praline ...

A real show stopper of a dessert!

A delicious combination of light crisp meringue, fresh cream and lightly spiced nectarines with the sweet crunch of pecan praline.

This impressive festive dessert is the perfect centrepiece for your table. The sticky brown sugar meringue has a delicious caramel flavour which works really well with the sweet citrus and winter spices. The pecan praline gives extra crunch and another dimension to this show stopper of a dessert.

Chilled Blackberry Soufflés...

Retro favourite- This is a great dessert for a special dinner as it can be made early on in the day and left to set in the fridge. Just peel away the paper before you serve them. If you would like to decorate the soufflés, add a few tiny blackberries and mint leaves to the top or dust lightly with a little sifted icing sugar at the very last minute.

Blueberry crème brûlées...

Restaurant favourite. This restaurant classic is surprisingly easy to make and almost improves the longer that you chill it for. Just caramelise the sugary topping before you sit down to eat your main course.
