Apple and Sage Galette with Salted Maple Caramel Sauce

Apple and Sage Galette with Salted Maple Caramel by Burnt Butter Bakery

Now, I just adore sage. I love it and I eat it all the time. But I realised recently, only ever in savoury dishes. Pork, apple and sage? Delicious! Burnt Butter and sage over gnocchi? One of my favourite dishes. But I don’t think I’ve ever even seen a sweet recipe featuring sage. It seems particularly strange to me considering how good apple and sage are together.

Goat’s Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust and Poached Strawberries

Goat's Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust and Poached Strawberries by Burnt Butter Bakery

I’m a little embarrassed to say this, particularly on a blog devoted to everything sweet, but for a long, long time, I didn’t really care for cheesecakes. It’s not like I hated them, they just weren’t on my radar. I never chose to eat them and I certainly never chose to bake them. Continue reading

Peanut Butter Mascarpone Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Peanut Butter Mascarpone Brownie Cookie Sandwiches by Burnt Butter BakerySomething I like to do with my cooking is playing with flavours.

Apple, Strawberry and Ginger Pie

Apple, Strawberry and Ginger Pie by Burnt Butter BakeryIf you have read my blog with any kind of regularity, or even just the last two posts, you’ve probably guessed that I like to make cake! In fact, my favourite thing ever to bake is an elaborate layer cake. I love imagining different flavour combinations and deciding what each layer will consist of and how it will be decorated. But if I ever had to choose between eating a cake or a pie (though who would ever be cruel enough to make me choose?), a good pie would win every time. Continue reading

Spiced Honey Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Burnt Honey Brown Sugar Glaze

Spiced Honey Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and a Burnt Honey Brown Sugar Glaze by Burnt Butter BakeryThis blog post has been a long time coming. It’s hard to believe that my last post was in January! It’s been a hell of a year – upheavals, changes, and barely time enough to breathe let alone formulate, test, photograph and share any new recipes. But now, life has mercifully calmed down, and I can get back to my poor, neglected and much missed corner of the internet. Continue reading
