Serpentine Chocolate Nemesis Cheesecake

(viewed 925 times)
Really dense chocolate like a heavy thick mousse.

The Rirkrit Tiravanija show there is really good. go make a cup of tea, have a sleep. Next time i will take a towel.

Serpentine, one of my favourite gallerys in london. As its summer they have the pavillion open - this is where i got the cheese cake from - lots on, etc.

Apple and banana pie recipe

(viewed 1458 times)
Simple to make, full of fruit flavour and not so super sweet...

Great when hot but I love cutting a slice straight from the fridge and eating it cold.

Braeburn apples are my favourite, so crisp and so juicy. I usually buy a big bag, so when after a few days and they are getting bit soft and a bit passed their prime, I can whip up this recipe (you can use them when they are really fresh and crisp too, like I made this time).

This is the first time I've made this with the banana. It was so good, the banana tastes really caramelly, but to make without the banana just stick in a extra apple.

Takes around 10 mins prepare time, 40 mins in the oven and a few days to eat.

4 braeburn apples
1 banana
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
I pack ready made flaky pastry (dont make it, so much easier to buy it)
pinch salt
pinch nutmeg
pinch cinnemon
butter (or equiv)

First, roll out the pastry so its big enough to cover the bottom, the sides and the top of the tin.

Lightly butter the tin, and put in the pastry base and sides. Make sure the bottom and sides are sealed together.

Core the apples and chop them in to largish chunks - dont peel them, the skins totally make this.

Chop the banana into big chunks.

In a big bowl, add the apple and banana chunks. Sift over the flour, add the sugar, add the pinch of salt, the cinnemon and nutmg. Give it a quick stir around so everything is covered in the powder.

Add the apple etc into the pie tin. Dot this filling with 6 level (ish) teaspoons of butter.

Put on the top of the pie, making sure you seal round the edges. Prod the top of the pie with a knife in lots of different places (around 10 times).

Bake in oven for 40mins, or until golden on top at 210C, 400F, Gas Mark 7.
