If you’ve seen Zumbo’s Just Desserts, which is currently airing in New Zealand, you will know that I’m a big fan of pudding. From the spectacular to the elegantly simple, I like to make time for a good dessert after a meal. Here are some of my favourites for you to try at home, taken from my cookbooks and my digital lifestyle magazine: Khoollect.
This deliciously sweet pumpkin pudding is a personal favourite and a great way to finish any meal. Find the full recipe at Khoollect.
For a lighter option, this rose water meringue mess is just the ticket. It’s also super easy to make!
Crème brûlée is a childhood favourite of mine. But, ever since tasting an awful one on my first trip to Paris, I developed my own. You can find the full recipe for this one in my Little Paris Kitchen cookbook.
These afternoon tea loaves are a great treat to serve with tea for friends. We have the full recipe over on Khoollect.
With only three main ingredients, you can whip up my meringue and chestnut-cream mountain. The full recipe is featured in my Little Paris Kitchen.
For a french twist on a classic British bread and butter pudding, try my raspberry and grape brioche and butter pudding from Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook.
I developed this recipe for a great campaign that celebrates Syrian cuisine. Inspired by Middle-Eastern food, this spiced semolina apple cake is jam-packed with a heady mix of spices and, of course, lots of apples. Full recipe on Khoollect.
I got experimental, building landscapes with this chocolate and crème fraîche tart. Create your own with the recipe from My Little French Kitchen.
For a more tangy dessert, try my lemon lava cakes from Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook. With a punchy lemon flavour and exploding centre, these are sure to be enjoyed by all.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do…
