Dig out your recipe scrapbook friends, you're going to want to print these out and stick them in. I'm hanging on to all five to try when I'm in need of a sugar fix. 1. Heart-shaped doughnuts
Cupcakes are so last year. These days, it's all about doughnuts, in pretty shapes and oh-so-delicious flavours. Like this sweet, heart-shaped take on the classic from Sugar and Cloth. Yum!
2. Pomegranate & blood-orange pancakes
These pancakes from The Best Remedy are topped with blood-orange and honey syrup, and I'd add a small dollop of cream. I am most definitely bookmarking this recipe for when pomegranates come back into season.
3. Butterscotch pudding with roasted banana-whipped cream
Imagine a winter's night: the dark comes down early and the wind is tearing around outside and you are indoors with good food and good wine and good friends, and now it's time for dessert. This butterscotch pudding from Not Without Salt looks rich, sweet and oh-so-satisfying.
4. Coconut hot chocolate
My mouth is literally watering. Read this recipe, then come visit me when the weather gets cold because I WILL be making this amazing hot chocolate from Cup of Jo.
5. Salted caramel lava cake
I left the most indulgent-looking sweet treat until last. Can you just imagine spooning into this chocolate lava cake from Eatsy ('food as craft' on the Etsy blog) and watching the salted caramel come oozing out? Lord have mercy!
