  • Malted chocolate bundt cake

    • BigOrangeTiger on May 01, 2021

      not made this yet but correct link is here: https://tinandthyme.uk/2015/01/malted-chocolate-bundt-cake/

  • Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate cream cheese icing

    • BigOrangeTiger on July 02, 2019

      I haven't rated this as I only made the icing, not the cake, but the icing is AMAZING! It is sort of like a chocolate cheesecake. In fact I had some left over after icing the cake and I, um, well I just ate it!

  • Apple chocolate chip muffins

    • Agaillard on July 26, 2022

      The link is gone! Similar recipe on same blog here : https://tinandthyme.uk/2013/09/apple-chocolate-chip-muffins-random/

  • Double apple tarts with white chocolate

    • Agaillard on November 17, 2019

      This was definitely good, however I was a bit disappointed. I didn't think you could really taste the white chocolate, and, it was really similar to a French apple tart I frequently make without a specific recipe (with spiced apple puree as a base and apricot jam as finish). I might try again with more chocolate.

  • Sweet potato and carrot soup

    • Agaillard on November 19, 2022

      Aaaah... still sick with i don't know what virus and this was SO comforting... worth the effort... only thing is i divided quantities by two for just me and this was barely enough. Should have made the whole thing.. Also, the quantity of stock indicated yielded more a purée texture than a soup, and this is backed by the pictures from the website. I added milk and a bit of stock for more of a soup feeling. I will definitely make again though, it tastes amazing.

  • Carrot top pistou

    • Agaillard on August 22, 2020

      I wasn't convinced, at all. First by the recipe, there are no proportions given at all, no clear instructions (do you use all the carrot top, or just the leaves, or ?). Second, the taste grossed me out, maybe because I got the proportions wrong, maybe because it was too raw and herby or just I don't like them or not used to it, who knows :) In any case will look elsewhere on how to use my carrot tops (see my post in the forum!)
