Freshly Baked: Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding

With many thanks (and kudos) to KitchenSpells for this deliciously inspiring way to use up the last of our Hot Cross Buns…it was the perfect dessert for a cool, wet Autumn evening.

Refer to the KitchenSpells blog for the full recipe and more delectable images.

Needless to say, my Other Half will be on a red-hot lookout for leftover Hot Cross Buns in the next couple of weeks (I’m not sure if I have the heart to tell him he won’t have much luck). 😉

Dessert in a flash!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ephemeral.”

Affogato (Italian translation: “drowned”)

An indulgent combination of rich, creamy icecream drowned in hot espresso and – should you be so inclined – a sweet drop of your favourite liqueur (traditionally amaretto, but I’m personally very partial to Frangelico for a lovely hint of hazelnut).

For it to work, however, it must be prepared in the most fleeting of moments…

Dessert, coffee and a nightcap all in one…what more can one ask for?
