This is for @Duck59 (Cherry Clafoutis was the solution to a clue in Cryptic food and drink). Clafoutis is a French dessert originating in the Limousin region traditionally made with cherries. I couldn't find any cherries so decided to make a raspberry version. This recipe is from...
I wanted to find a way of using lentils in a dessert (crazy, I know) and I found this recipe online which I am keen to try. Not only does it use lentils in a sweet context but it's also vegan and gluten free.

It took me while to work this one out. I'm not the greatest when it comes to cooking sweet things! I think this works well though and the pumpkin has a slightly coconut taste when combined into the cream cheese and cream. You could make a less calorific version by using ricotta in place of the...

The early hours of the morning should not be mixed with any recipe involving chocolate and certainly not one which sounds as good as this one does! And I have found a very dangerous website, one that contains lots and lots of desserts which can easily be made vegan. This is from there...
The hours when you can't sleep are not great, nor are coming across recipe after recipe for chocolate this, that and the other which you can't eat, so I rather like it when I find a recipe that intrigues me and I can eat... This one meets both of those conditions.
