Desserts: Deconstructed! 

Whether you’re fed up with frozen puddings, feeling inspired by Bake Off season, or have a dinner party steadily approaching, here are some different and unusual recipes that are guaranteed to win everyone over. 

Sweety Pie


Homemade apple pie is an absolute classic, but it doesn’t take long before it gets boring.

Make a modern alternative with juicy prunes, pears or even peaches. All you need is some pre-prepared fruit and pastry – et voila! A few minutes in the oven and your dessert is complete.

Take the indulgence level up a notch with an added scoop of ice cream or mascarpone on the side. Yum!



A favourite for many – but often the recipes for a basic cheesecake can be very time-consuming! Let’s break the norm with a deconstructed alternative!

Grab some cups, glasses or pots – you can get the kids to help with this bit… Layer the base with some sweet and tangy mandarin. Pop a few scoops of mascarpone on top, sprinkle with some crushed biscuits and you can even add chocolate chips on top to finish.

No-Bake Cheesecake 

Fruit and Cheese Combo


Savoury puddings exist too – plus everyone loves a bit of finger food! Try preparing your favourite cheeses with delicious pear slices this Autumn.

Why not play around with the classic, pineapple and cheese on a stick, but choose another fruit to include in the mix?
