Christmas would not be the same without mince pies, bursting with rich dried fruits, spices and citrus notes. After a glut of quince one year, I decided to add them to the mix, rather than the usual grated apple, and this was the delicious result, giving the mix a sweet, tart twist. Freshly chopped ginger lifts all the flavours up.
Chocolate and Hazelnut Torte with Praline Ganache
A chocoholic’s delight! Instead of using shop-bought praline or chocolate and hazelnut spread, both packed with refined sugar, I make my own praline paste using nut butters and natural sweeteners. It adds a really pure nutty flavour and texture to this rich and decadent cake without making it sickly sweet.
