... then add your own fruit!

Once the sunshine begins to roar down, the last thing you’ll want after a tasty dinner is a hot pud. Apple crumbles and pies are fine during the snowy months, but try wolfing one of those down when you’re already a bit tepid, and you’ll have sweat thundering down your face like it were the Niagara Falls and your face were the sopping wet rocks situated directly behind the relentless gush. Not a good look for a man, and particularly bad for a woman. Hence the key during June-September is to opt for cold desserts, like sorbet, jelly, or in today’s case, cheesecake. Here’s how to make a simple vanilla one, as described to us by great friend of the site, Charlie. Feel free to add your own fruits and coulis..

You will need…

1. 12oz digestive biscuits
2. 6oz butter, melted
3. 1lb cream cheese
4. 5oz caster sugar
5. 1 tsp vanilla extract
6. 4 eggs, lightly beaten.
7. Some icing sugar

Now butter your cake tin, put the oven on to 180. Blitz the biscuits in food processor, then mix them with melted butter and press them down into bottom of the tin until nice and even. Stick it all into the fridge for a bit. Mix the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and eggs together in large bowl until nice and creamy, then put it all together and bake it in oven for 40 minutes. Bosh. Cheesecake.

    mmmmm, yum.

    I am obsessed with this Nigella recipe.

    Banana and Butterscotch muffins

    3 very ripe bananas
    125ml vegetable oil
    2 eggs
    250g flour
    100g caster sugar
    1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    150g butterscotch (I used white chocolate chips)

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6 and line a 12-bun muffin tin with
    muffin papers.
    2. Mash the bananas and set aside for a moment.
    3. Pour the oil into a jug and beat in the eggs.
    4. Put the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl and mix in the beaten-egg-and-oil mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.
    5. Fold in the butterscotch morsels, then place equal quantities in the prepared muffin tin – I use an ice cream scoop and a spatula – and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
