A soft lightly spiced sponge with a light cream cheese frosting. This frosting has no butter, a little sugar and reminds me of a light fluffy cheesecake! It pairs amazingly with the soft carrot sponge, and trust me this will be the last cream cheese frosting recipe you will need.
In Japan a common mochi pairing is with kinako, a nutty soybean powder that reminds me in many ways of peanuts! And that was how this peanut butter mochi cookie was born. The crumbly texture of the cookie melts in your mouth and you are left with a super soft and sweet mochi. It is an incredible play on textures and flavours and I know you guys are going to love it for sure!
For those of you that don’t know what a sticky date/toffee pudding is you might be thinking how something with dates could be SO GOOD. Let me just say, you have to try it to know. The dates add extra moisture to the ‘pudding’, essentially a moist cake, as well as an extra depth of flavour. The use of brown sugar, molasses and dates together builds a dessert with a super deep caramelised flavour that will leave you hooked. Top that with a silky butterscotch sauce and ice cream?! I think you can imagine how it tastes 😀
This recipe uses the classic no-churn ice-cream base of condensed milk and whipped cream, but adds elements like a caramelised, nutty pistachio praline and a sweet strawberry jam. On top of all that there are extra pieces of roasted pistachio to bring some crunch. It is AMAZING. If you are a pistachio ice-cream lover then this will blow your mind. If you aren’t a fan of pistachios you can substitute the nuts for almonds or peanuts! It will be different, but just as delicious~
