Piña Colada Baba

This an adaptation of my Grandmother Mimí's Pineapple Baba recipe that has been a favourite in our extended family for eons. I have perked it up with rum and a coconut cream to give it a Caribbean flavour. It is an unusual recipe as it uses breadcrumbs, not flour, and it will rise like a soufflé during baking and collapse as it cools. This gives it a spongy texture that readily soaks up all that juicy syrup. Be sure to chill the coconut cream overnight.

Greek Custard Rolls (Galactobureko Rolls)

These beautiful little pastry rolls with a semolina custard filling are drenched in a sweet sticky honey syrup that is so loved by the Greeks. This recipe was handed down to me by my girlfriend Kelly, so in our house, they are called Kelly Rolls.

Upside-down Apricot and Pistachio Cake

There is nothing like this cake when it is served freshly baked, with it's buttery body and the tang of fresh apricots. This is based on my Mum's recipe and the first taste always brings out the little girl in me!

Pandoro Dessert Cups

This recipe was designed to make use of a large store-bought Italian-style Pandoro (festive sponge cake), which I turned into dessert cups in a variety of flavours - lemon curd & almond, coffee & nutella and strawberry, custard & coconut, to feed a crowd.
