January 1st, 2021 · No Comments

Rizogalo After the main course, where better to have puds than 1,898 km away on the sun drenched Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Officially called the Republic of Cyprus (this is probably not the best forum for discussion of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus), it is the third largest and third most populous island in […]

Treacle Tart

November 2nd, 2015 · No Comments

Ooh, the nights are drawing in. A pudding was required for esteemed guests and having banished thoughts of complex custards I alighted on the idea of feeding our friends something sweet and sticky instead, plums and apples away with you and your dull autumnal associations.

Rhubarb fool

May 14th, 2013 · 7 Comments

If you were to apply the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Test to fruit-based desserts you’d find the Rhubarb fool sits somewhere between the Strawberry Simpleton and the Damson Dunce. Not the brightest confection in the bowl you understand, but possibly one of the tastiest.

Honey cake (with extra honey)

August 21st, 2012 · 4 Comments

I had a rare yen for something sweet the other day, so I commissioned my fellow blogger (the tart) ( …pie, cake and dessert specialist) to make a honey cake. After the initial face-to-face where we defined objectives, budgets, timelines and composed the all important mission statement*, we set about building the team who would […]

Rhubarb upside-down cake

March 3rd, 2012 · 1 Comment

Living as we do at the very epicentre of the rhubarb triangle – the mysterious 30-square-mile area formed between the three cities of Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford famous for early forced rhubarb and the unexplained disappearance of countless ships, planes and whippets – it seems only appropriate that we should make more use of this […]

Chocolate pithivier (minus the pithivier)

February 15th, 2012 · 2 Comments

We had a pair of Hebden Twins coming to dinner so obviously we Googled ‘What do twins eat?’ in search of appropriate ways to tickle their sapphic taste buds. The results threw up a biography of Sue Perkins and an incongruous and seemingly random set of images, but very little in the way of practical […]

Warm honeyed citrus fruits with yoghurt

February 28th, 2011 · No Comments

The visitation of Blogger-D’s errant sister and her luxuriantly mustachioed Frenchman and ‘associate’, coincided perfectly with the recent arrival of 2 freeby jars of delicious Greek honey from Mathos. For this recipe we opted for the Olympus Honey which with its lighter floral flavour made it the perfect companion to the pert zestiness of the […]

Chocolate Bavarois

January 17th, 2011 · No Comments

Yumblog Towers saw in the new year with a feast which started with a (very disappointing) trout mousse, followed by a spectacular post-modern deconstructed prawn vol-au-vent, and rounded off with this profoundly rich Simon Hopkinson chocolate and cream-based dessert. A belated Happy New Year to our reader(s). Chocolate Bavarois

Arnhem Biscuits

May 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Another Simon Hopkinson recipe, although this time one he borrowed from a cookbook written by Roald Dahl, who in his turn took it from a nice man in Arnhem who made these tasties at his patisserie. Judging by the photo in the (subsequently purchased and truly delightful) Roald Dahl book, these biscuits aren’t quite the […]

Classic Rice Pudding

So a Frenchman arrives bearing cheeses and wines which you duly wolf for lunch, but what to feed him for dinner? Well trad English had to be the way forward since his culinary experience has not really crossed the Channel (or The Sleeve as they call it in France). And Pot-kicker-T isn’t overenamoured of the […]

Christmas Panna Cotta

February 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This recipe was featured in the Fat Bastards Hairy Bikers ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas‘ which aired late last year. We have gradually warmed to these two over the years, so when they signed off saying ‘if you only cook one thing this Christmas, make sure it is this Panna Cotta’, we knew we had […]

Trifle à la Toria with elements of Larousse Gastronomique

January 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This year Yumblog spent Christmas in Berlin with one (the posh) half of the extended Yumblog family. Among many things there was much snow, a healthy smattering of Krautrock, Lego, Glühwein, a ruggedised JCB mobile phone, a (disappointing) visit to the Currywurst museum, plastic cheese for breakfast and duplicate ‘Shaun the Sheep’ DVDs. The (much […]

It was Hallowe’en and amid the regular, numerous, and it seems to me slightly gratuitous pictures of sad-eyed children with hare lips, the Guardian magazine had this Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe for marshmallow. Perhaps naively, I had no idea Marshmallows were a simple man-made concoction of sugar and gelatine – I assumed they grew on trees […]

Gooseberry Sorbet

September 5th, 2009 · No Comments

They had gooseberries at the fruit and veg stall on Saturday morning and so I just had to buy some. When I got home and set about working out what I was going to do with them I realised that gooseberries are generally cooked up and mixed with cream, just in various different ways. I […]

Despite a mouthful of fillings, I don’t really have a sweet tooth and so tend not to delve into the sugary world of desserts, afters and puds. However, we had a friend over for a boozy Sunday lunch and this Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall-Clafoutis-Recipe had caught my eye in the Guardian the day before.

There’s nothing finer than getting up at 05:00 on a Sunday morning, amassing on Clapham Common with 27,000 other Lycra-clad humans, and pedalling off on a six-hour ride to Brighton. To help us reach our destination we packed the traditional sausage and Branston sandwiches, a bunch of bananas, 2 gallons of Lucozade and, for the […]
