Mulled Wine Glazed Doughnuts for Christmas in July

This year is flying by so fast, it feels like Christmas was only just here… and will be here again real soon once the malls put their decorations in September. But it’s time to dig out your ugly sweaters and fruit mince pies, because we like to celebrate Christmas twice a year! The usual Australian Christmas is very different to what … Read More

Sticky Date Doughnuts with Salted Caramel Sauce

Last year, on the first Friday of June, my Instagram feed was suddenly flooded with doughnuts. Deep fried dough of all shapes and sizes. Glazed and sprinkled. Filled and sugar-coated, in every colour of the rainbow. I wondered what the heck was going on – intrigued of course – before I saw that it was National Doughnut Day. I immediately … Read More

Lemon Ricotta Doughnuts with Honey Chamomile Syrup

A big hello from Manila! I’ve been here for a week and practically everything I’ve eaten has been amazing.

Churros with White Chocolate Raspberry Ganache

It was only after I’d made, styled and photographed this dessert that I planned to post next week that I realised that it’d actually be a pretty awesome dessert for Valentines Day. Apparently in February I develop an infatuation with doughnuts and raspberries, as last year’s post contained accidentally similar flavours! Let me preface this post by saying I’ve never … Read More

Raspberry Ricotta Doughnuts

Ahhh Valentine’s Day. Since I can remember, I have not been a fan of the nauseating commercialism that surrounds the 14th of February. I’m fairly certain I’ve never posted anything heart-shaped on this blog! The boy and I have never even been on the same side of the country to actually spend it together. Showing love to your partner and … Read More

Hot Cross Doughnuts

I love the idea of transforming classic sweets into a completely different form, and these days my choice of form seems to be doughnuts. After my Lamington Doughnuts were such a success for Australia Day, I wanted to try my hand at Hot Cross Bun Doughnuts for Easter. Yes, I am shameless, but can you blame me? They’re so cute! … Read More
