My fantastic veg man dropped off tonnes and tonnes of perfect nectarines

First of all I sliced up the beautiful nectarines & sprinkled them in sugar and Vanilla
and baked them for 10minutes until gooey and sweet!

it was definitely time for some indulgence!

So for you this week, I am sharing this Recipe:

Mainly because of this:
Has anybody see the amazing Range Cookers Give Away:
This is my entry!
Not really a cupcake but blooming DELICIOUS!!

Two of the most decadent, delicious, more-ish, lip-smacking, pound piling ingredients coming together
to create something so good.

so mother-flipping good.

This recipe has taken some inspiration from my 2 favourite things.
TARTS & REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS.

I’m the type of gal who has 3 different types of frozen homemade pastry in the freezer, ready to go for Tart Experimentation. (you can make easily or you can buy it)

There was some left over sweet pastry, to which I swirled in some Nutella
– because what was about to go in just wasn’t going to be naughty enough.
It created a really lovely marble effect and my pastry actually turned out really buscuit-y

I just blind baked for 10 minutes

P1010269

P1010270
&Stuffed this little minx with a dollop of crunchy peanut butter.

Then toasted some hazelnuts, melted in some Nutella on a very low heat and a tiny dash of cream – which was I think UNnecessary because Nutella is already a good thick consistency.

P1010267
Then poured this mixture over the peanut butter layer

P1010272
and left them in the fridge for an hour to set.

P1010283 P1010284 P1010287 P1010288 P1010289 P1010290P1010291

Then I topped them with a poor-man’s Reese’s Peanut product…
A few slices of a beautiful Starbar

SO
What do you think of that then?

IN FOR THE WIN!?

Moroccan Date

MOROCCAN LAMB
&FETA TART

I have been cooking so much lately, but more for family and friends
it’s the hot weather and I’m loving eating outside in these scorching evenings!

Always accompanied by a glass of wine, or a cold beer..or two

The hot weather has made me a bit obsessed with warm colours on my DIY projects,
lanterns, hats and evenings full of Moroccan dishes.
