Some things are just meant to be together – Ant & Dec, gin & tonic, strawberries & Wimbledon. This month’s baking round-up from Helen at Casa Costello pays homage to the wonderful taste combinations that food bloggers have been baking with recently. There are some traditional pairings and some unusual ideas that are pure genius …
From top left moving around clockwise:
Rhubarb & marzipan cake from Fab Food For All, which managed not only to look stunning but also be frugal too.
Mango & lime friands by Eat Like A Girl – there are even two versions of this recipe available including a Dairy Free Option.
Raspberry & white chocolate traybake from A Mummy Too – a classical taste combination that works perfectly.
Not forgetting the savoury bakes, we have roasted aubergine & ricotta tart from Amuse Your Bouche.
Small and dainty but perfectly matched, lemon curd & Greek yoghurt Eton mess tarts by Belleau Kitchen.
Sweet Coconut with a tang of citrus, marmalade coconut semolina cake by Recipes From A Pantry.
Banana cake with a maple frosting from SuperGolden Bakes – Pure comfort food.
Raspberry caramel cake from Annie’s Noms. This is described as a ‘simple cake that is sure to please’ – I agree!
Taking inspiration from yoghurt flavours, Dolly Bakes brings apricot & honey bundtlettes.
And who could resist the combination of peanut butter & Nutella blondies from Taming Twins.
And there’s more …
