Blackberry, Apple & Bilberry tart

I love the deep purple colour of this Scottish blackberry, apple and bilberry tart its so beautiful and the flavour certainly doesn’t dissapoint either. It’s such a delicious warming tart to eat when the seasons change to Autumn and can be enjoyed with freshly made warm custard, whipped double cream or vanilla ice cream. My kids really enjoy this tart after a delicious hearty Scottish stew and it also works really well the next day for leftovers.

Smoked Salmon pate

We love this creamy traditional Scottish smoked salmon pate. It works really well with pasta, oatcakes, toasted sourdough and you can even make a delicious smoked salmon and prawn terrine with this recipe. My favourite has to be traditional Scottish smoked salmon pate on my home made Scottish oatcakes.

Beetroot Brownies with cacao nibs

I can’t possibly think of a better way to use up the garden beetroot than in these beetroot brownies! They are so good and most definitely count as one of your five a day right?! They add a healthy dose of fibre and the kids are eating beetroot so that’s surely a win?! They are delicious though and the perfect way to use up the garden glut of beetroot at this time of year.

This traditional Scottish crowdie cheese is so delicious and creamy and spreads really well on Scottish oatcakes, biscuits or even in a sandwich. Its really easy to make and traditionally was a great way to use up excess milk.

Scottish Blackcurrant Drizzle Cake

We all got a little bit excited about this new blackcurrant drizzle cake recipe we created using our delicious homegrown Scottish blackcurrants. They grow so well here in our Scottish climate and we have tonnes of them in the garden so are always looking for new ways to use them. I’ve not seen a recipe like this in traditional Scottish cooking but I can almost guarantee they would have been growing them in their gardens many moons ago as they are so easy to grow in this climate and they provide such a good nutrititonal boost.

Wartime Rhubarb Sponge

This delicious rhubarb sponge is moist and crumbly at the same time. It’s half way between a rhubarb crumble and a sponge and is the kind of delicious pudding your Grandma would have served you after a Sunday lunch. My kids loved it so much I barely got a shot of it coming out of the oven. lol 🙂 Check out the video below for this simple recipe.

I love this delicious probiotic rich lemonade made with kefir water. Its so easy to make and is packed with nutritional beneficial bacteria.

Rhubarb Cream Cake

This delicious butter free light sponge is lovely with the flully cream and sticky rhubarb drizzle. Rhubarb is definitely one of my favourite things about late Spring. I love a good Rhubarb pie but quickly get bored of making pie to use it all up. This little sponge cake was inspired by a Nordic sponge recipe and I think it works really well with the cream and rhubarb.
