Petit Fours - Miniature Damson Gin Cakes

This recipe is for my miniature Damson Gin Sponge Cakes, I wanted to stick with quite warming, autumnal flavours this week so I also made Chai, Chilli and Chocolate cakes, and Rhubarb Meringue Pies, and will be sharing the recipes for those over the next couple of days

Eton Mess with Blackberry Gin Cordial

Eton Mess with Blackberry Gin Cordial

Specials Board: Damson Jam

Specials Board: Damson Jam

I love damson jam and its a hard call to pick between damson and strawberry for me, but during the winter months a little jam can make everything seem a whole lot better, bringing back fond memories of the taste of summer
Gooseberry & Gin Jam

Gooseberry & Gin Jam

Gin Jam. Gin & Gooseberry Jam to be precise. I put Gin in my Jam and rather good it was too. Fair enough there's a bit of novelty factor involved in being allowed to enjoy gin at breakfast time but it also works well in terms of flavour

Upside-Down Dark Chocolate, Coffee and Pear Cake

Bullace cheese

Bullace cheese

If you didn't know (I didn't), a bullace is somewhere between a damson and a plum. So I used the vodka and the gin can wait for the sloes

And if, like me, and my mother perhaps too, you need to warm up again after a spell in the garden finding the rhubarb or just venturing out on a chilly springtime footer in the great outdoors then what better way to warm up than with a little Damson Gin or Spiced Rum
