Prune and Cognac Clafoutis

Prune and Cognac Clafoutis

Cognac is a wonderful French brandy that is full of rich flavors that include raisins, apples, warm spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, toffee), wood and toast – and that is to name only a few of the flavors you might encounter. The exact flavor profile of cognac varies between blends, between brands and between cognacs that bear different age statements. Though some of the tasting notes may ... Read More »

Lemon Curd Bread Pudding

Lemon Curd Bread Pudding

One of my favorite lemon desserts is lemon curd. It may not seem like much of a dessert on its own, as it is usually paired with scones and crumpets for brunch, but it actually easily brings some fantastic lemon flavor into desserts like Lemon Curd Ice Cream and this Lemon Curd Bread Pudding. Perhaps I should say that it is a good dessert ingredient, ... Read More »

Rum Flan

Rum Flan

Rum and caramel are great together, so it is no surprise that this Rum Flan is a particularly delicious twist on the classic custard dessert. The flan is rich because it is made with plenty of egg yolks (in fact, this recipe is a great way to use up the egg yolks leftover from baking an angel food cake) and it has a silky smooth ...

Frangelico Tiramisu

Frangelico Tiramisu

Most tiramisu recipes add a splash of marsala wine or rum to the espresso that the ladyfingers are dipped into. The liqueurs add a little extra dimension to the coffee and give the tiramisu some extra complexity. While I enjoy a splash of rum or Baileys in my tiramisu, you need to use more than a splash to really change the flavor of the dessert. ... Read More »

Easy Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding

Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding

Dulce de leche is a thick, sweet milk caramel that has a unique – and addictive – flavor that is unlike that of any other caramel sauce. It is made from milk and sugar, which are cooked together until both the sugar and the milk solids are caramelized and flavorful. It’s hard not to simply eat it with a spoon, but like other caramel sauces, ... Read More »

Spiced Rum Rice Pudding

Spiced Rum Rice Pudding

Rice pudding was a dish that I only ate at my grandmother’s house when I was growing up. While she didn’t always make it herself from scratch (she sometimes did, and bought Kozi Shack at other times), it was always a creamy treat that I looked forward to when I visited. Perhaps it is because of those memories with my grandmother, but rice pudding has ... Read More »

Pumpkin Pudding Cake

Pumpkin Pudding Cake

From scones at breakfast to pie for dessert, there are more pumpkin baked goods out there than you can shake a stick at – a cinnamon stick, that is. Though there are many of them out there, I feel that there is always room for something new in the pumpkin pantheon and thisĀ Pumpkin Pudding Cake uses pumpkin in a way that I haven’t seen before. ...
