Raw Chocolate Ganache Tart – May’s SABH

Im soooooo excited about this months Sweet Adventures Blog Hop! As the hostess with the mostess this month, I got to choose the theme, and as you guys are aware, I chose raw! There was a little bit of confusion around the theme, but its something I have been looking in to since going veggie. There really is a whole world out there of food techniques and beliefs that I hadn’t even fathomed. After watching a raw dessert being made on an episode of Veg, I knew I had to try it. Its looked perfectly fudgy and decadent, but was completely raw, completely vegan, and completely good for you!! 😮 I KNOW RIGHT?!?! So Raw Chocolate Ganache Tart – May’s SABH Adapted from The River Cottage Ingredients Base: 175g walnuts 125g almonds 1 tsp salt 200g dates. Filling: 4 medium sized ripe avocados 150g virgin coconut oil 200g raw cacao...

Mushroom and Goats Cheese Tart

I cant believe its less than a week until Christmas 😀 ZOMG!!!!! All of our pressies are under the tree, the dessert list has been made for the family get together, Bonnies reindeer outfit has been bought (although I dont think she’s a fan :(), the last thing to do is our Christmas lunch menu :o….. I know I bang on about mushrooms a lot, probably even more so since Kev and I removed meat from our diet! But they’re so good for you, low in calories (win!!!), mega tasty AND versatile! Just looking back at all my mushrooms posts – Mushroom brioche pull-apart, Porcini gnocchi, Veg stir-fry, Mushroom baklava, Japanese mushroom risotto,  Antipasto cob, the list goes on really – and those are just the ones I have posted about! The awesome peeps at The Australian Mushroom Growers have asked me again this year, to come up with...

Easy peasy apple tart

To go with the stuffed squid I made one night, I wanted an easy dessert to use some of the apples we had. I thought crumble, I thought pie, but then settled on a light apple tart that couldn’t be easier. Ingredients 2 granny smith apples (you can peel them if you like but I think the green looks pretty) 1 sheet bought butter puff pastry Melted butter Vanilla bean ice-cream, to serve Method Preheat oven to 180°c. Thaw out pastry sheet and cut a circle (I used a dinner plate as a guide but you could even use tea cups and make individual desserts). Brush circle with butter and fork places that will be covered by apple. Core apple, cut in half and slice thinly. Brush apples lightly with lime juice for a bit of flavour and to prevent browning. Arrange apples as desired on the puff pastry,...

Lime tart

Trying to stick with an Asian theme for Sunday, I wanted to have something lime-ey to follow the pork but something that wasn’t too fussy so I could enjoy a couple of Sangria’s and not have to concentrate. I decided on a lime tart and got to work early on so it would have time to cook and then cool completely before dinner. Ingredients Shortcrust pastry 3/4 cup lime juice 3/4 cup caster sugar 3/4 cup cream 3 eggs Method Make shortcrust pastry and blind bake in the oven, patching up any holes that may appear before puring in the filling. Preheat oven to 140° Meanwhile place the lime juice and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until sugar dissolves. Add the cream and lightly beaten eggs making sure you stir continuously so the eggs don’t scramble. Keep stirring for about 5 minutes and...

Strawberry tart with Dolcetto and honeycomb

Some left over shortcrust pastry prompted me to be resourceful with other sweet left over ingredients in my fridge (and a little booze for good measure). Enter my strawberry tart….A pyramid of freshly whipped cream, plump, boozy, sweet strawberries and crumbled honeycomb. This is a great dessert for Spring but probably not so good for the Spring time gym efforts. Well at least there’s fruit on it right? Ingredients Shortcrust pastry (see here for the recipe) 1-2 punnets of strawberry’s (depending on the size you are making) 250ml Dolcetto and Syrah wine 250-500ml thickened cream 80ml honey 20ml water 220g white sugar 2 tsp bicarb soda Method Wash and hull strawberries and place in a small bowl with the wine. Leave in the fridge overnight (or as long as you patiently can) to let them get to know each other. Roll out the pastry and fit it to a...

This is up there with one of my all-time favourite desserts. It’s so more-ish that my thighs are still screaming at me! As are that of my friends and family. I ended up having to give the rest of it away so that I wouldn’t eat it. It’s like it spoke to me. Screamed at me actually. I’m scared to make it again. But here for you is the Adults-Only Snickers Tart adapted from Epicurious.com Ingredients Crust: Non-stick vegetable oil spray 1 1/4 cups plain flour 5 tablespoons sugar 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup chilled unsalted butter, diced 1 large egg, separated 2 (or more) teaspoons ice water Filling: 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar Pinch of salt 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 1/3 cup honey 1 cup lightly salted dry-roasted peanuts 1 cup icing sugar 1/3 cup creamy (smooth) natural peanut butter (made with only...
