Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fig & red wine crostata

    • Astrid5555 on September 11, 2021

      What a delicious fall recipe. Had too many figs from the market so was looking for something to whip up quickly for coffee and this one absolutely fit the bill. Figs were macerated in some red wine while the dough was chilling (leftover juices were a delicious treat for the baker). I added some ground almonds on top of the rolled-out dough before topping it with the macerated figs to soak up any leftover juices, worked beautifully.

  • The one true apple cake

    • Astrid5555 on January 04, 2022

      This one - together with Dorie Greenspan’s Marie-Helene‘s Apple Cake - are the only two apple cakes you really need, both are quick to make and real crowd pleasers.

  • Whipped coffee & ricotta instant mousse

    • Astrid5555 on December 18, 2021

      This is a light quick and easy make ahead dessert, which tastes absolutely delicous. I added some coffee-soaked leftove cake scraps for an added coffee punch.

  • Almond, ricotta, olive oil & lemon drizzle cake

    • Lepa on September 27, 2021

      This is lovely but with the drizzle and icing it is sweet. Tart and sweet, so it's good but not as much of a breakfast cake as other ricotta cakes.
