Chocolate and clementine come together here in a deliciously light 'rocky' bun. For an extra chocolatey orange touch why not drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the cakes? Green and Black's Maya gold (orange and spices), or organic milk chocolate orange flavour would work wonderfully!
Makes: 12 cakes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
200g self raising flour
25g cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
40g granulated sugar
100g candied orange and lemon peel (I got mine from Tesco)
1 medium egg
2 clementines (zested and juiced)
2 tablespoons demerara sugar for decoration
Ever have those days where you want to make something easy, and not even bother switching on the oven? Yep, me too! This key lime pie is delicious, and so easy to make. I can guarantee you won't ever have any leftovers!
You can make this on days where you can't bear to switch on the oven as it's so hot, or in the depths of winter as the ginger biscuit base with a hint of cinnamon complement each other nicely.

Makes: One 23cm pie, or 6-8 ramekins
Preparation time: 15 mins plus at least 2 hours for the pie to setIngredients:
200g pepperkaker biscuits (ginger biscuits sold in Ikea), or plain hobnobs
125g melted butter
30g dessicated coconut (unsweetened)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
370ml Carnation condensed milk (plus a little extra just in case)
Coconut, pineapple and rum... is there a more heavenly combination in the summer? Pina coladas remind me of sunshine, lying on the beach, impromptu drinks made with ice cream at BBQs and tiki bars.
If you can't indulge in the cocktail, have a go at these cakes because they're almost as good as the real thing!
Lady Grey tea has a delicate flavour, with hints of oranges and lemons.
I found some in the supermarket and thought I'd try tea infused cakes after seeing a recipe on Emily Kate Makes.
They turned out very light and tasty, and perfect for afternoon tea of course!
After making these cakes I'm tempted to try again with Tetley's Earl Grey and vanilla, or Twinings Lavender Earl Grey. So many teas, so little time!
